“A wise person should have money in their head, but not in their heart.” -Jonathan Swift. An article written by Ashley V. Whillans, assistant professor at Harvard’s business school, explored the actual influence that money has on employees and their performance. It explained financial benefits aren’t the only incentives that workers seek. Throughout the article […]
On Saturday, Estelle and I started off my final day with eating breakfast with her whole family. The meal was filled with a mixture of French and English conversation along with laughter. After breakfast, we took the bus into Geneva to sight-see. We started off at the famous Lake Geneva where I could see the […]
The sights I have barely scratched the surface in terms of the awe and wonder that is India. The landscape in this enormous country varies enormously from the long stretches of golden beaches to the rugged Himalayas, from the vast deserts to the lush jungles. The buildings, including the temples and mausoleums, the monuments and […]
Many times, self-made recipes can either be a hit-or-miss. In middle school, my friends and I would play this game where we would create the nastiest combination of food (Dr. Pepsi, hot sauce, and Skittles…anyone?) and then dare each other to eat it. Of course, I always ate it because I was 12 yrs old […]

Great step wise jump in quality, depth and length over the village is excellent. There’s a clear build in mid-palate structure with oak and grape tannin. Dark brooding & tightly wound. Great core of fruit. Mid-palate depth is impressive. There’s sophistication to this. In 5 years we’ll see this evolve into something impressive. Savoury, hints of brown spices and liquorice. Just an edge disjointed in its youth as would be expected. We can see where it will end up and it’s a happy place.
Today in Volnay, like neighbouring Pommard, we are seeing a softening of the wines, more plush and pliant tannins. This goes to my point that terroir includes the hand of the maker.
Bouley’s wines fit into this mould.
For the 1988 season, it is once again, a battle between Jaguar, Mercedes, and Porsche for who will come out on top in Group C. It is also, a year of some change, as there will be sprint races blended in with a lot of the endurance events, and there will be fewer 1,000 kilometer […]
It’s been a busy couple of months in the Rusty household so I’m a bit ashamed to say that not much progress has been made on Project 240 since my last post. By this stage I had intended to have the whole car cleaned inside and out, with all of the missing and broken bits […]
GlenDronach 18 years Allardice is, without a doubt, my favorite of the core GlenDronach lineup. It’s balanced, it’s complex, it’s interesting and something I want to drink regularly. This is the kind of whisky that appeals to me no matter my mood or the time of year. It’s just a tremendous dram. The first time […]
A blend of vintages, all fully matured in ex-Sherry casks, the GlenDronach Grandeur 24 years is a sought after release that brings the sherry in a heavy and brooding manner. Every year it’s a bit different and this particular release was put together by Rachel Barrie who built it with her senses tuned to an […]

Such is the versatile nature of this beautiful & flavourful Middle eastern recipe known as Shakshuka! It is traditionally an Israeli breakfast dish but it can literally be had at any point of […]
This is a cross bred, fusion combo of a recipe that combines two of my favourite desserts; cheesecake and apple crumble together to form a new and exciting dessert of its own. This mish mash is proof that you can never really go too wrong in the kitchen & that apples are seriously one of […]
As a young witch, a hidden witch, a dreaming witch or awakened, the moon holds special bonds with most of us. I’d love to say all, but I am sure not everyone feels the same, but most. When ever I see the Moon, no matter the phase, I’m enamoured by the incredible beauty. It’s always […]
