Pete Wedderburn - Animal Doctor Parvovirus is one of the most serious and lethal viral infections of dogs. Epidemics of the disease have rarely been seen in recent years due to widespread vaccination of dogs, but there are concerns that there may now be an increased risk of this happening again. Many pet owners have become complacent about vaccination, and...
Calodagh McCumiskey - Wellbeing & Meditation A wonderful teacher of mine told me a number of years ago that I needed to learn to handle disappointment. This was great advice and I am reminded of it from time to time.
Deborah Coleman - Straight Talking There was much discussion this week following a Government proposal which aims to remove the so called 'baptism barrier' that applies to the school admission process.
David Medcalf Tidy Towns has Our Town terrorised. Apologies, that should read: Tidy Towns has Our Town transformed. Sorry about that. The drive to neaten up the streets and boost our standings in the national competition has certainly been a keen topic of debate in these parts. And...
Clair Whitty - Naturally Healthy Over the years I have been asked all sorts of embarrassing health questions, including bad breath, constipation, flatulence, low libido, piles, rash under the breast, sweaty feet, or white coated tongue. Walking into a health store to ask for help can't be easy but if you don't ask for help you won't find a solution. Here are some...

Jim Hurley - Nature trail The most common and most familiar family of brown seaweeds on the seashore are the wracks. There are just five common members of the wrack family and they are easy to tell apart.
Pete Wedderburn - Animal Doctor As a vet, the cornerstone of making a diagnosis in a sick animal is the physical examination. This is sacrosanct in the veterinary world: there's a specific way of doing this, starting at the tip of the animal's nose, and working backwards, checking every small physical aspect of the creature. Instruments are used as needed,...
Andrew Collyer - Practical Gardening 'Deadheading' refers to the removal of old flower heads from plants. This is generally done to encourage certain plants to reflower, although it can also be done for decorative reasons when old fading or dead flowers look unsightly or are spilling petals around. It can also be carried out to stop certain plants, like Libertia and...
Cast in the same mould as Richard Curtis' rom com Notting Hill, Hampstead is a twee tale of star-crossed lovers across the social divide, who find common ground in a court case over squatters' rights in verdant and des-res London NW3.
Chris Hayes - Game Review Never has a game illuminated the rift between good ideas on paper and shoddy execution so much as The Long Journey Home. The premise is wonderful; you are in a spacecraft that has suffered a malfunction, causing you to be sent to the other side of the galaxy. Your mission is to make it back home to Earth.
Pete Wedderburn - Animal Doctor Fake news and false science have begun to seep into the world view of many people. If you ask people about the Twin Towers, or the moon landings, or many other news items, you'll be surprised at...
