    'Age makes hypocrites out of us all and when I got married this summer, I was a 57-year-old first-time bride': Why I finally proposed to him after 35 years of waiting!

    For 35 years, my partner, Geof, and I lived happily in sin. Marriage was never on the cards. In fact, he once described our relationship as ‘a one-night stand that had gone horribly wrong’.Neither of us had the slightest inclination to make it legal.Personally I loathe the title ‘Mrs’, and women that refer to their menfolk as ‘my hubby’ make my fists clench. But what can I say? Age makes hypocrites out of us all and when I got married this summer, I was a 57-year-old first-time bride.As my daughter, Phoebe, 27, joked, ‘Well let’s face it, you can be ...

    Seriously creepy coffee: A café in NYC is selling a matte black latte topped with black WHIPPED CREAM - and it's both trendy and unnerving

    The backlash against unicorn lattes and Frappucchinos has given rise to a new coffee drink that's the exact opposite of the rainbow sparkly concoctions that have taken Instagram by storm.Round K, a café on New York's Lower East Side, is now selling a Matte Black Latte, which owner Ockhyeon Byeon says is 'black like my soul'.The drink has very quickly become a major hit — even if the black liquid and matching black whipped cream on top are a bit unnerving.

    Let's raise a glass to Madeira! Why the Portuguese region is sweet like the wine it's known for, says Frank Barrett

    Tenerife is like fizzy pop: sweet, delicious but generally unremarkable. Madeira, on the other hand, is like a fine wine which you can savour and enjoy long after the first taste. It’s an interesting comparison. Tenerife is the best known of the Spanish Canary Islands, famous as a package-holiday haunt.

    Grab that cheap flight now - it may be your last chance! Forty years ago, the airline revolution set us loose to explore the world. But our freedom to roam could disappear just as quickly

On Monday, September 26, 1977, Laker Airways began operating its low-fare Skytrain service from Gatwick to New York. By the way, at a time when the news is dominated by reports of people having to wait two or three hours at an airport, it’s worth noting that the first Skytrain passengers were happy to queue for three days simply to get their £56 one-way ticket to New York.Before Laker, few people could afford to fly on scheduled flights to America. After Laker, the world began to open up to ‘ordinary’ people. Louche and ...

    The prehistoric 'Pac Man' frog that ate small dinosaurs and has a bite as strong as a TIGER

    A large, now extinct frog called Beelzebufo that lived about 68 million years ago in Madagascar would have been capable of eating small dinosaurs, researchers have found. The discovery came after researchers measured the bite force of South American horned frogs, known as Pacman frogs because of their round shape and large mouth.The study found that these frogs have similar bite forces to those of mammalian predators, and the extinct frog may have had a bite as strong as that of a wolf or female tiger.  A large, extinct frog called Beelzebufo that lived 68 million years ago would have been ...

    RACHEL RICKARD STRAUS: We teach toddlers about dinosaurs, but tell teenagers to measure their education as a return on investment - learning is about so much more than earning

    I love the fact that we teach young children about giraffes, dinosaurs and planets.None of these are essential bits of information for a new person in the world. They re unlikely to encounter a giraffe, being able to identify a Tyrannosaurus Rex is no longer a key survival skill and really what those things are that sparkle in the sky is by-the-by on a day to day basis.And yet small people often learn about them far earlier than more practical bits of knowledge.
