What is Tai Chi? And is that how it's spelled?

That's a very pretty picture, very "umber", but it doesn't quite answer the question, what is T'ai Chi Ch'uan?

I've seen it in movies, read about it in books, and watched David Carradine do it in true 70's splendor (remember Kung Fu?), but it's not something I have ever experienced for myself.

Top 100 Albums - The Zombies - Odessey and Oracle

Time for me to make a start on this bucket list thing, otherwise it'll never get done before...well, you know.

Top 100 albums first, I think, so let's have a look at the first one (or the 100th one, depending on how you look at it.  This could get a bit "tensile").  First up will be "The Zombies" with "Odessey and Oracle".

Let's learn about... Hornets

I've always been curious about hornets - do they serve a useful role in our society?  Are they just like wasps, requiring us to develop new and exciting strategies to wipe them from the face of the planet, or are they all warm and fuzzy, deserving of our love?

Family Day at Cobble Beach

It's Family Day, the day I would look forward to if I was working so I wouldn't have to work.  We get to spend the whole day together and try not to kill each other.  Hurrah!

This year, Cobble Beach are offering a family fun day, which promises that the kids will have, and I quote, "the time of their lives!".
