Fitness: Nordic walking is like 'taking Pilates outdoors'

5 hours 45 min ago
IT is the latest fitness workout to grab the headlines and I can attest that if it hadn’t been for Nordic walking poles I wouldn’t have made it through the last 5k of my non-stop 100k walk this summer. They were exactly what I needed to take the pressure off my feet when my heels and toes had taken a bashing, though I can’t say I knew exactly how to use the poles properly.

Star Wars, Saving Private Ryan and On The Buses: my days of visiting film locations, and why they are over

Sun, 25/09/2016 - 8:47am
Well here we are again and thank you for joining me on a ramble down Memory Lane. I feel autumn is coming and soon we will have to gather around a blazing open fire so I can recall days of long ago. However this week I reckon we should go via Dead Man's Gulch and River Canyon to mark the passing of veteran actor Hugh O'Brian, who many of us will recall as the television western hero Wyatt Earp in that long ago series.

How I failed to climb the musical trellis of hospital radio

Sat, 24/09/2016 - 8:49am
I spent nigh on 20 years in the basements of hospitals. Usually located between ‘environmental services’ and the morgue, there is no less attractive location from where to present amateur radio shows. It’s a tough gig, especially when your welcoming committee is a backlog of cold storage bound body bags and your target listener is inevitably geriatric and stone deaf.
