Pirate Birthday Cake

It was my sons 5th year birthday and decided this year to make him a pirate themed cake as he is well into pirates. I enjoy watching the food channel and often watch the amazing cake programmes and am very impressed at what they do with fondant which I have never used before so decided to give it a go. Here are the results! Everything on the cake including treasure chest and ship is edible except for the playmobile figurines. The round part is...

Seafood Dinner Party April 2014

Last year I made a British Dinner Menu for my guests which went surprisingly well, so this year I decided to do something different and went down the seafood route as we live in Marbella which has an abundance of fresh seafood, so it was an obvious choice. The previous year I slaved all day on the saturday from dawn till dusk and completely knackered myself but this year I thought I would work smart and do some of the work on the friday. Therefore...

[SOLVED] Daisy Chaining Apple LED Display to Apple Thunderbolt Display

W00t! Just went and invested in a thunderbolt cinema display as a second screen and ran out of space on my desk, so have built a nice little extension  on the right to house my other gadgets and its starting to look like Nasa control centre! However, getting the displays to work was not without its issues. The screen on the left is an Apple LED 27′ Cinema display and the one on the right is an Apple Thunderbolt 27′ Cinema display and...

Bizarre, Antiquated Renewal Method From My Firewall Company

I just wanted to write this more out of frustration than anything because I cannot believe how some companies deal with their clients. Even in the US which is supposed to be at the forefront of technology they are using things like “telephones” to communicate and asking clients to “phone in” and give their credit cards “over the phone” which anyone should know is one of the most insecure methods of paying for anything. Anyway,...

A Quintessential British Dinner Party Menu

Before Xmas 2012, myself and my wife attended a small dinner party (6 of us) hosted by some friends and everyone had heard how well my previous attempts at Beef Wellington went. After much persuasion I caved in and agreed I would cook for the next dinner party in Feb 2013.

Bureaucrats – How to Annoy Them and the Twitmarsh Files

I am in proud receivership of two books recommended to me the other day by my friend Justin Parks. 1. The Twitmarsh Files 2. Bureaucrats – How to Annoy Them These books were written by the late Patrick Moore under his pen name “R.T Fishall” (artificial..get it?) in the early eighties. The Twitmarsh files is a kind of reprint of the original “Bureaucrats – How to Annoy Them” and both are a brilliant and enjoyable read...
