Those who had the pleasure to know and work with Dexter, attest his goodness, talent and humility through the medium of social media. For the rest of us, he appeared to be all that and his untimely death, has robbed us an unbounded talent, still in his prime.
WITH Halloween fast approaching, it's just another reminder that you are getting older, and let's face it, there's nothing more spooky than that. You...
By now we've all probably seen Kim Kardashian's Instagrammed butt... The whole issue lies in what people consider to be appropriate behavior for a mother, especially a new mother. We are supposed to be off nursing our baby, feeding our baby, shopping for our baby, loving our baby. That is all. How dare we wish to express ourselves as women? And especially as sexy women!
The weather has taken a turn for the rubbish so here at Food tube HQ we're serving up some hearty dishes to give autumn a kick up the clouds. If you thought the barbecue was just for the summer then think again.
This was the one everybody was curious about. Reading down the list of dates on the tour, every show was in a well-trodden town except this one. No one I spoke to had played here either, indeed few had even heard of it. Turns out it's a newish venue, built on the University of Hertfordshire campus.
This is one of the sentences that I heard most often whilst making the new series Old Before My Time. On one hand I understand its meaning - there is no point in wasting our precious time on this great Earth by fretting and worrying. But on the other hand, I think it's an incredibly unhelpful modern statement. Yes we only live once, so surely it's worth looking after ourselves so we can make the most of it? If we only get one run at life, surely we want the longest and least sickly stint possible?!
My eldest son Bobby is somehow on the verge of becoming of senior school age, so for me, today was spent on one of many tours of schools to work out exactly what our options are and where I would like to end up spending the next five years driving to and from twice a day in the name of my child's education.
Here are my suggestions on what to do with the next year. Take a step back and really think about what you want from the next 40 years of work. It's a long time to be doing anything, so don't rush it. Surround yourself with people and things that inspire you. Learn everything you can.
'Yeah, he won the Tour de France seven times,' are the last words spoken in the much hyped documentary The Armstrong Lie. The words are spoken by Lance Armstrong himself. Lance Armstrong the self-confessed drugs cheat, fraud, liar and bully. If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that Lance Armstrong certainly didn't win the Tour de France seven times.
We played pretty well, a touch rusty perhaps after a short gap since Paris. It didn't matter though; the crowd were determined to make it an incredible evening. Every so often an audience shocks you with their reaction- Sheffield were just such an audience this first night back on the road, they went berserk from start to finish. The Steel City embracing some London Troublemakers, what?
Why has the premium push-chair had such a meteoric rise to fame? When was the sea change? Yet again, in my humble opinion, it was probably back in the early noughties when the cult of celebrity took a TIGHT hold.
Not every extreme weather event can be attributed to our changing climate. It's a complex and wide-reaching problem. But scientists have said that when these events happen more frequently and with greater force, they form a pattern that points strongly towards climate change.
I was drawn to this way of eating because grains were the basis of my meals; lunches were a sandwich, quick easy dinner was microwave brown rice and a stir fry and Paleo seemed to be a good way of consciously increasing veg and reducing grains and sugar in my diet.
If you have fed your child into obesity - you are failing your child. If you think not talking about it will make it go away - you are wrong. You need to get your head out of the sand and your kid's head out of the food cupboard.
Scolastica, a 33-year-old single mother and urban chicken farmer in Tanzania, set up her poultry business in 2005, itself a brave step for a woman to make in such a patriarchal society. Things ticked along relatively well. But when three years ago, a virus swept through her flock and killed 600 of her 900 birds in less than a week - even someone with the drive and determination of Scolastica thought her dream was over. That's when Comic Relief stepped in and her luck began to change.
What a mouth-watering week for Food Tube. Not only have we busted out a brand new bunch of tasty videos but we've also been tickling digital taste buds with the launch of Jamie Oliver's Food Tube on Twitter.
