Drinks Tube will have it all - from showing you how to make amazing cocktails at home to discovering fantastic beers from around the world, or explaining everything you've always wanted to know about the world of wine. But it's not all about alcohol - there'll be soft drinks like coffee and juice too!
There's been much debate in the press recently about whether Kickstarter crowd funding campaigns offer backers a raw deal. If the rewards offered: previews, back-stage passes, special commemorative t-shirts, and premier invitations are really adequate compensation for early investment in a speculative project...
Last night I decided to listen to Education, Education, Education & War, the new album by Kaiser Chiefs... I haven't done that in ages, just listened to an album all the way through, without doing anything else at the same time. No texting, no cooking, no reading, just listening.
I thought that we lived in an era that looked back on the horrors of Rwanda and Yugoslavia and said 'never again' and meant it. Sadly I think the crisis in Syria proves all of us wrong and we are all collectively guilty for allowing the country to collapse as it has. Three years on and we see both a biblical level exodus combined with a levels of violence that few of us could have imagined in our wildest dreams. Over nine million people, nearly half of the country, forced from their homes and on the move exposed to a new life of uncertainty, poverty and too often despair.
Humans crave attention, whether we care to admit it or not. For some people, this manifests as the desire for fame and fortune, while for others it can be as simple as feeling as though someone is proud of you. But it's there in all of us, that little selfish streak that wants people to notice you.
This week in an uber trendy west London pub, Clarke - actor, screenwriter, director, and hero to thousands of young film makers- also added Record Label Head to his resume.
It is wonderful to see how much more confident young disabled people are today as they expect equality and rightly so. But in reality, these young people are not out and about in society yet. As a disabled adult, it is very hard to get a job, and very hard to access benefits. In fact, I would say that many disabled people in the UK still feel like second-class citizens. I am still shocked that for many people I meet, I am the first disabled person that they know. And often they start out with lots of negative stereotypes. I think that although we are definitely in a better position than we were twenty years ago, we are still fighting society's attitudes towards us.
When did everyone become so mean anyway? We all have our secret sorrows. We all have our hidden hurts. And try to remember, that nobody really knows what goes on behind closed doors.
In his beautiful memoir of his late father Blake Morrison asks the question, 'and when did you last see your father?'... Similarly I ask myself when was it I stopped believing I was British? Because believe me it's been a while since I felt that way.
Selfies at their best are, like the fashion magnate claims, narcissistic and unashamedly self-gratifying. At worst? A sorry way to define a generation and a potentially damaging by-product of a supposedly liberating medium.
This week, word broke that Chris Martin and Gwynneth Paltrow had decided to part ways. It was like an oil slick near a crematorium. We knew instantly only seconds would separate us from what can only be a flaming onslaught of hate and sh** that infested the already festering world of Twitter. Everybody had an opinion. The majority of which were smug and snide. Delighted, almost relieved to hear the the "golden couple" had finally failed at something!!!! Marriage!!! YES!!!! We can all sleep at night! Thank God for that.
We all need to do our bit to look after it. It's not always easy being green but there's loads of things we can all do to do our bit. To show my support for the planet this Saturday I'll be heading down to London's Southbank Centre to take part in WWF's annual event Earth Hour.
So, I suggest we take a moment and chill. Reassured by the fact that every baby is different and develops at his own rate (so they tell us) and just enjoy our little nippers.
"How would you like to pay?" Bash in credit card details and notice that the booking fee for each ticket is £7.50. Postage is £2.50. Starting to experience rising anger. Don't get sidetracked.
whatever their ability everyone raised the bar and challenged themselves. Endured a little something, pushed a little further than they usually would, all for a great cause. Some may also have exorcised the exercise demons (sorry) and may feel inspired to take a new path, taking control of their health and well being.
Sometimes people are just fat and happy - which is the sort of people Sally is most frightened of; those of us that stick two chubby fingers up to a world obsessed with the scrutiny of women's bodies, diets that promote starvation techniques and the idea that thinness is somehow related to successfulness. Obesity isn't curable if you don't want curing.
