| | 0 comments »
As seen in today's Homes & Property section's "budget issue". No digs about any of the gear being too pricey please: the spread before mine focused on property bargains in the French Alps...


(Please note: correction, apparently Calor gas heaters are not recommended as safe for bedrooms.)

I have a blanket ban on writing stuff for free... unless it's for a great local community project like this. Check out the whole programme for Walthamstow's first ever Appetite festival in June on Issuu. My little piece on why growing your own veggies is about more than food is on page 3 (or click on the pic below to read it).

Lovely piece in today's Homes & Property section, shame the pics are in a muddle. No photo of the Denon and the B&W is in twice, meanwhile Loewe and Bayan are in a bit of a muddle. Oh well, they say there's no such thing as bad publicity guys, so don't shoot the messenger!

Want to make movies like Kubrick? Want a Steadicam for £99? No, it's not off the back off a lorry, it's a cool new model called the Smoothee just for iPhone and GoPro.

And yes, I know the thing in the photo is a DSLR. They used the wrong photo. Pedants can read the story, complete with correct photo, on the Delta Sky site.
