    Bacon, Sausages and burgers are bad for you!!

    I'm not a great lover of burgers but the latest WHO report on health risks puts two of my favourites right up there on the 'no no' list. I shall not be refraining from sausages and bacon, but is nothing sacred in the dietary world these days? Obviously this could have a serious impact on South...

    Best place to buy fireworks of dubious legality

    I have been invited to a BYO firework display which is quite clearly going to turn into a p1ssing contest between the adult males. Can anyone recommend an establishment that sells fireworks of almost unimaginable power at surprising low prices? None of this Standard/Black Cat crap that...

    Having smoked on and off for years (mainly on) I decided to get an vaping cigarette from the shop in the eastgate centre for me and the other half. Not sure what to make of it yet but if it's better for me and saves me some dough I'm taking it as a positive. Anyone else want to share their...

    Taxing Festive Cheer - a new lowI do hope you all enjoyed the festivities over Christmas. Perhaps, like I, you drank a fine wine with friends, or smoked a cigar with your Cognac to celebrate one of the few remaining holidays the taxman allows us revenue producing drones. No sooner have we put...

    Parent Text App: How to text your children...

    I'm intrigued by this for a variety of reasons... I don't have children, but spend all day every day communicating with young people. Texting is a powerful force and so often communication takes place between parents and their children in this way. Indeed, even at 27 often I will text my own...

    The Soviet Union - the Great Socialist Utopia

    Just to get the ball rolling.... 'the annual risk of a person under Soviet control being murdered by the regime was 1 out of 222. But, compare - the annual risk of anyone in the world dying from war was 1 out of 5,556, from smoking a pack of cigarettes a day was 1 out of 278, from any cancer...

    Quitting Smoking

    So i've just done the deed of snapping all my cigarettes to pieces because I just can't be bothered with it anymore. It is also one of my resolutions to quit, so I though sod it, i'll start early. I know I've said in the past that I will quit, but I really mean it this time. I'm fed up of it and...

    Barton Gets Toon Out Of Jail

    You can say whatever you like about his moral compass, and I've certainly used several pages of this newspaper to do that in the past, but you cannot question Joey Barton's courage. On his first full game since being released from prison, the occasional Newcastle midfielder smashed home an early...

    Sir Alex Ferguson

    It's not often that a manager can switch to good, old-fashioned 4-4-2 and be thought of as a tactical genius, but when Sir Alex Ferguson deployed his troops in a formation that many believed he had turned his back on forever, it was another demonstration of why he's still at the top of his game...

    2008 European Championships

    While England’s footballers sulk in their sun-loungers, the rest of the continent will be contesting the 2008 European Championships. Iain Macintosh, who still won’t allow the word ‘McClaren’ to be uttered in his home, runs the rule over some of the potential stars of the summer. This week, it’s...
  11. Favourite type of Bread?

    Having just come back from the shop after puchasing essential supplies, well mainly coffee and cigarettes, it occured to me the multiple choices of bread there are. Personally my favourite is an uncut white seeded bloomer, all those poppy seeds just make it delectable, though a pain in the...

    Ah, I've been waiting to do this for a long time. Just before the World Cup we happy few here at Icons.com were tasked with creating a new football podcast. We were given a little bit of budget to make a pilot episode of something that would hopefully get snapped up by a big sponsor...

    Proud to be British?

    Being British is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV. And the most British thing of all? Suspicion of anything...
