Why I Love That Twang Thang

Nark Drool and the Shudders

We are old now and grey, but we still remember those arcane names that we mumbled to each other all those years ago in dreary school playgrounds – Fender, Gibson, Guild and Gretsch, Watkins Copicat, Binson Echolette. Say them aloud and you can still hear their poetry.

Recipe: Thai Curried Chicken Salad

Thai Curried Chicken Salad

It’s January so if you’re anything like me you’ve decided its time to eat healthy and save some money. One of the easiest ways to do both at once is to bring a packed lunch to work. Not all offices have microwaves (or at least not microwaves you’d actually want to use) so the lunch possibilities are often limited to things that can be eaten cold, like salads and sandwiches. I must admit I get a bit bored with both so I came up with a recipe that’s a bit different, a little bit spicy and remains healthy at the same time. This Thai Curried Chicken Salad can be eaten either as a sandwich filling or on top of a salad.

Looking for a Venue? How About a Good Place for a Good Time?

Eel Pie Island in Twickenham first earned its reputation as a good place for a good time back in the 15th century. Henry VIII used to visit to enjoy Mrs Mayo’s famous pies and in its time the Ait has been home to a bowling alley, a pub, a nature reserve and a hotel with its own jazz club that in the 1960’s helped launch bands like the Rolling Stones, the Who and the Yardbirds. When the hotel burnt down in 1971 Eel Pie Island fell off the “Must Visit” list and slowly slipped into suburban slumber.
