Cheetah Cubs, 3 months old
I took this picture a couple of years ago at Cheetah Outreach, Spier Wine Estate, Capetown. The one with the darker markings, looking as though he is in Feline heaven, is a King Cheetah. (There are only about 28 of them in the whole of South Africa. Their markings are caused by a Recessive gene in both parents).
I was invited to wingwalk in aid of the RAFA Benevolent fund. So I took to the air on the Press Day of the Shoreham Air show back in July. We have some footage taken from the wing of the plane as I flew over the sea at Brighton, keep coming back here as at some point we'll get it transferred and up on the site for you to see.

When I purchased my little Ford Fiesta last year I was assured that because it is Eco friendly I would not have to pay Vehicle Tax. Being something of a Cynic I didn't really believe it. Today I received a rather confusing form which reminded me that my Vehicle was due for its Vehicle Tax but all I... Read more...
4 July, 2015: MARGUERITE PATTEN
MARGUERITE PATTEN The other day I read of the death of the Cookery Writer – Marguerite Patten. Why did this strike a chord with me? Her Cookery in Colour was the very first Cookery book I owned. It was given to me as a present by my lovely boss Dr. Archie Clow who was Head of the Science Unit at BBC... Read more...
