More Handel More Water Music / Leppard A distinguished member of our Unconventional Hall of Fame.

Living on a boat is not easy. You’re in a constant fight against the elements and there’s no end to the maintenance. Boat owners will tell you that, if you want to know what it’s like to own a boat, “stand in the shower and tear up twenty dollar bills.” Yet, the idea of living […]

The Great Game

I’m getting a bad feeling about this year’s Royal Ascot. Bomb Proof, one of my big bets, has had a setback and misses the meeting. The weather forecast has taken a turn for the worse and Kew Gardens may not get his ground in Thursday’s Gold Cup. Migration probably won’t make the cut for the […]

I love visiting the ruins of a castle or abbey. There is something hauntingly beautiful about them, small fragments of the past that have survived.
