Book of Five Rings: The Classic Guide to Strategy (book review)…

Book of Five Rings: The Classic Guide to Strategy by Miyamoto Musashi My rating: 5 of 5 stars Another book that’s sat on my Kindle for years unread. But having just finished David Kirks’ books it really felt like the right time to read this. It’s hard to judge this book in any real contemporary read more »

Cipher Hill (Free-Wrench #5) (book review)…

Cipher Hill by Joseph Lallo My rating: 5 of 5 stars More wonderful, shenaniganic fun aboard ‘Wind Breaker’. Sadly, for now, this is the last book in Joseph’s ‘Free Wrench’ series, but i certainly hope he’ll be adding some more at some point. Captain Mack and the crew are just too much fun to leave read more »

Sword of Honour (book review)..

Sword of Honour by David Kirk My rating: 5 of 5 stars I loved this book. Far better than the first – which i gave 4 stars. Looking back over the 2 books it felt to me like David gained in confidence writing tales about Musashi and also that he has come to know him read more »

Lewis Hamilton’s Diet…

What makes Lewis so able to do all the things he does in life and still be leading this year’s title race by 40 points? A plant based diet (that’s a euphemism for vegan diet)… “Health-wise, I’m super healthy. I went on a plant-based diet last year – I started here last year – and read more »

Annoying Food Excuses – It’s Too Expensive…

A doctor on the internet suggested that eating 1 lb of greens a day would dramatically improve people’s health and go a long way to reversing type 2 diabetes. In the comments there was the usual complaint… ‘1 lb of greens is too expensive.’ I’ve lost count the amount of times i’ve heard the excuse read more »

Vuelta 18 Challenge…

38th out of 537… Admittedly, i had to re-ride a few routes a few times to get 38th place. Worked hard for this one as this was my last on Rouvy for a while, as this was the final challenge needed to complete my Rouvy Career to Legend. So now i’m off back to Zwift read more »

The Unwanted (book review)…

The Unwanted by Steam Punk My rating: 2 of 5 stars For a give away short story one maybe shouldn’t complain, but it takes time to read stories and i feel this was a waste of it. We are given characters who were raised and trained from childhood to fulfil their adult roles, who are read more »

Child of Vengeance (book review)…

Child of Vengence by David Kirk My rating: 4 of 5 stars Just couldn’t quite bring myself to give this 5 stars. David has taken the tales of Miyamoto Musashi and created his own story from these, so some of this is loosely based in what is told of the real man and some of read more »

Drink Driving and Food…

I was surprised by this article, and i’m sure many others will be also… Can you get drunk on boozy food? So please think about the alcohol you are maybe eating, as well as drinking, if you intend to be driving. Better still, just quit alcohol altogether and save yourself the worry – no more read more »
