IN my continued attempts to be a tiger mother and get the boys speaking Spanish I have banned English radio in the car. The problem with this, (there are always problems with my plans), they don't play radio versions of songs and swear words are abundant. The other day the…
IF the UK doesn’t toughen up against the threat of potential terrorism we really can put our heads between our legs and kiss our proverbials goodbye. The first thing the government has to come to terms with (and more importantly publicly admit), is that we are in a war. The…
IT has been eight years since the world of television lost one of its greatest and most successful food presenters. Dubbed the first celebrity chef, Keith Floyd redefined the way…
I HAVE been reminded that I start my 49th year living in Mojacar. Only a few special celebrations of this type should be remembered. But, September 10, 1979 I remember all too well. There were complications. My wife and children were in the states. My two closet buddies were away…

JUAN the gardener is outside and I have retreated to my bedroom. Nick and I share, but I always refer to it as "my bedroom". He tells me off for this but after 11 years it continues to make no difference. The reason for my retreat? Juan saw me naked…
ONE of the reasons that it’s hard to get things done in Spain administratively is because if the government changes every four years, so do the people in charge of…

I AM asked often, “what did you do back then without TVs, radio, theatre and seemingly no where to go and nothing to do?” But, in the early days you only had to sit back and contemplate your next meal and you had a plethora of choices. Really good and…
ELDORADO hasn’t graced the screens of the BBC for about 25 years, but new footage has revealed just what the set of the soap in Spain looks like today. Launched…
KING FELIPE and the president of the Spanish government Mariano Rajoy got the bird at the pro-peace, antiterrorist march in Barcelona.
