Howard’s formula is stunning

HOWARDS Smokehouse, an eye-catching restaurant, has recently opened on Golf del Sur, and it’s not to be missed! Formerly Big Al’s, at Terraza de la Paz, it is situated on the right-hand side of the one-way circuit, just before the Sand Blas turn-off. And my wife and I decided it looked well worth a visit, […]

Plan ahead for festive guests

ALTHOUGH it’s only November tomorrow (Saturday),  Christmas items are already appearing in many shops. I’m not a great fan of taking the festive season seriously so early, but there are some items for which it pays to plan ahead. If you are thinking of having people to stay for Christmas (and we all know how […]

‘Dead heart’ gives new life to a 57-year-old sufferer!

ELATED surgeons in Australia have performed the first heart transplant using a “dead heart”. Donor hearts from adults usually come from people who are confirmed as brain dead, but with a heart still beating. A team at St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney revived and then transplanted a heart which had stopped beating for up to […]


AS we approach the festive season, there’s always a change-around, colour-wise, as the summer gets left behind. Now’s the time we consider our “autumn-winter” here on the Island. And as you change your colour wardrobe to match the season, think about some hair-colouring ideas as well. We have seen a big switch in the salon […]

Tenerife batter Barca

 CD Tenerife 2 Barcelona B 0 YOU don’t know how many years I have waited to write that headline! Okay, it may have been against the kids, but Tenerife dominated Barcelona last weekend. They showed that on their day, they are as good as anyone in this league. And that is the annoying thing for […]

Look out, they’re behind you! 

OH no they’re not. Oh yes they are! And it would be a fairy story fit to grace any pantomime if Trap Door could finally catch the top three. It would cap a remarkable run that has seen them go from rock-bottom to fourth spot quicker than Jack climbed his beanstalk. In their latest Divison […]

Baker has Jambo for breakfast

WHAT a week it was in the Direct Telecom Pool League! All season the feeling among players was this was the hardest and best standard ever. And the results are certainly showing that because every week, there are upsets and tight matches. Division One leaders Tenerife Hammers A have been flying high over the last […]

Chelsea are a class apart

IT was another one of those weeks where the usual form book was ripped up. Unexpected results cropped up and teams missed opportunities to better their league positions.
