As the 2015 judges were announced on Tuesday morning, not only were fans underwhelmed - the "big news" had been practically everywhere prior to the official unveiling - but many threatened to boycott the show altogether, myself included.
Apparently, according to the newspapers this week, I am one of a new breed of HENS. Yes, that's me, I'm a hen. And apart from the insulting clucking implication, or perhaps the suggestion that people my age have little brain and even less purpose, it stands for Happy Empty Nester.
You're probably reading this post on a computer or mobile device via a vibrant glow emitted by the screen. So readily available to many of us, light and power only becomes evident in their unexpected absence - the frustration of dead batteries, power outages and darkness. Yet for 622million people in Africa, energy poverty is the norm. Home to one-sixth of the world's population, Africa receives only 4% of the world's energy supply... Inspired by my own childhood I knew that we could electrify Africa now, and we could do it quickly.
The advice we give to sellers is to really shout about everything that you love about your property - chances are someone else will love it too. It's a bit like online dating. If someone posts a profile that lists simply their age, height, weight, number of kids and profession then you only get a one dimensional view of them. It's the same with property.
I was once being shown around a museum in North Korea when another member of my party- a Finn who claimed to be a priest in the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monsters (look it up) took off his shoe and started banging a large gong that was by the door. We barely escaped with our lives and were chased by an angry and murderous mob for a good mile out of town.
It has been said by many actors that screen longevity has more to do with charm than talent, and if my brief encounter with Lee was anything to go by he had it in spades.
One really interesting point that was raised was today's reliance of technology in the design community. I'm all for networks like Instagram and Pinterest and I can see the value and convenience, but there's something to be said for seeing things with our own eyes.
I became interested in different bird calls a few years ago while sitting outside at night listening to tawny owls calling to one another - it really sounds like a long distance conversation from tree to tree.
Our mind is always 'flitting'. It's a leftover from the old days when our lives depended on it. Back then if we didn't keep flitting our focus in all directions, something with large teeth would have come up behind us and had us for lunch.
Having just seen Virgins Sex Pistols inspired credit cards and then dragging my eyes through and article about pop 'rivals' Katy Perry and Taylor Swift writing vaguely pissy songs at each other, Kate Moss has saved my laptop from being coated with vomit. Thank you Kate for being a bit naughty, a bit rock 'n' roll.
Tallia Storm has been dubbed 'Tiny Chancer' after leaving her demo CD with Sir Elton John's partner, David Furnish when she was just 13. Now at 16, still a very young girl with a very big voice, Tallia is not only known for her soulful singing, but also for her unique fashion choices and big hair!
What has he done right that other members of his family have got so wrong? Does it come down to the nature of his story, the particular way it has been handled, or both?
Being born into showbiz royalty doesn't automatically mean you're going to fall into a lifestyle of drugs, debauchery and excessive spending. Or does it?
Actually, it would be quite a horrible thing if the Kardashian West family would limit themselves to four kids just because of abysmal name-picking skills. There was a suggestion, however, that a name such as 'Wild' should never be off the table, thus expanding the size of the dynasty even further.
As I got up from the sofa when she had finished, she noticed that my abdomen went into a cone shape and told me that I probably had a diastasis recti and I would need to get proper treatment for it after the birth of my baby if I wanted it to heal.
If you went down a manhole and sat there in the dark, what's swarming around up there in your brain sums up whom you really are. I'm not saying don't think about redecorating your house but in the big scheme of things the rehaul won't make your experience of the world any different, even in a new chair.
