For me this is worrying. I would not be happy to be flying over Ukraine at the moment.
Anyone who has travelled to Spain knows that “mañana” culture is the norm giving a happy relaxed feel to the place. Wherever you go there are examples however of quirkiness, oddness or even madness/stupidity. Lets take the Miracle Bar in Benalmadena Costa where you can drink Paint. Vehicle registrations that consist of the number 0000. The most eveil appalling food in the so called ” VIP” lounge at Malaga airport. Enough, I thought so. The try some Rocked salad…….
I bought a Tastecard a few years ago, 29£ per year giving discounts usually 50% on food and many restaurants in UK. to begin with their selection was limited but things have improved a lot. We picked this restaurant at random. We visited friday lunchtime having checked they accept the card then, not in the evening though on friday. We sat outside on a lovely large patio and all was superb. The menu is large enough to be good choice but not too large as to give too much choice.
Food was great. Starters of Bruschetta and Aubergine, main course of Sea Bass and chicken and asparagus, and dessert of apple crumble and tiramisu. simple Orvieto for wine. If we had no wine, no coffee and no service the food would have cost only 27£ for two using Tastecard!
Really recommend here especially if you can sit outside. In fact even without the Tastecard the food prices are not so much more than other average food chains.
Having been underwhelmed with the I Phone 4 camera for some time having switched to 5c frankly was not expecting much, but in fact the camera is a seriously better camera. These photos of food taken in dull light without any enhancement may demonstrate what is possible. Kolabrautin restuarant in Harpa in reyjkavik in Iceland!

The Fault in our Stars is a wonderful film on many levels. The acting is superb, as is the casting as is the music. The use of a narrator helps the story flow. As most people know the story relates to cancer in young people. The film is undoubtedly sad however oddly very funny as well. Go and see it. I am not going to spoil the story by telling you what happens but suffice to say a fast moving film that never dwells on any single part, issue or character for long. This story could happen and to that extent is a real story. The music provides a great background and is thoughtfully chosen with a minor complaint. What happened to the song by Birdy T-shirt? A great song and although on the playlist seems to have fallen off the film somewhere. Wrong decision. Not everyone agrees with me…

Suede have hit the road again in 2014 and have a number of concerts and festivals lined up throughout europe. This is the first time I have seen them play outdoors and although the concert was good, very good, it did not reach the heights of for example the Paradiso concert in Amsterdam, the Roundhouse nor the Royal Albert Hall. Suede thrive on atmosphere and at any outdoors festival the music does tend to vanish into the heavens. The other minor complaint was that the set was shorter, far shorter than some other sets ( maybe we were spooled then, as they did play for maybe 75 minutes), and the set list included nothing from their new album Bloodsports. From Brett Anderson’s comments to the audience ” leave your cheese and pickle sandwiches and come down the front”, he too may have had some reservations about the audience. The age was not so young though mixed. I saw ages 0-75 there. But was this their normal concert audience? Think not. So maybe the set list was tweaked towards those who heard them in 1992. A mistake maybe. They played well and we all had a good time but a single encore of an unusual song maybe ended the concert on a flatter note than it should.
All sounds like grumbles, but actually it was a great evening and great concert. The venue was like a mini Hyde Park, with fenced off field with large stage, food outlets etc. Food was fine, never cheap at these places ( pie, nice pie for £8, beer £4.50/pint) but overall a really good venue. Easy to get to, good parking, everyone escaped quickly afterwards.
Support bands were good too, very good in fact in the case of The Hosts, a sheffield based band,and good but curious for a singer called ?Griff. The Forestry commission should be congratulated on these ventures and will I be back, yes.
