Best behaviour, please gents

F1 Monaco Grand Prix MERCEDES boss Toto Wolff is well aware that any errors from his Rosberg-Hamilton partnership during Sunday’s Monaco Grand Prix could open the door to other teams in the Formula 1 title race. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg collided while disputing the lead on the first lap in Barcelona nearly two weeks […]

Tenerife look the part

CD Tenerife 3 Real Valladolid 1 Alcorcon 2 CD Tenerife 1   TENERIFE’S chances of making the end-of-season play-offs had vanished in Mallorca, but that didn’t stop the side from producing another couple of encouraging displays. Last weekend, Real Valladolid pitched up in Santa Cruz and, like the hosts, they were really playing for pride […]

Candelaria’s saintly status

WE decided to trot up the TF-1 to Candelaria, a beautiful, coastal area situated on Tenerife’s north-east coast, where, daily, coach-loads of tourists visit this sleepy, little Canarian village. It is steeped in history, which makes it so pleasant to experience something other than the popular tourist spots. With no British bars or restaurants in […]

Babies’ health is up in smoke

IT is a well-known fact that smoking during pregnancy can create many problems for unborn babies. It can be quite distressing to see expectant women enjoying cigarettes, because, for decades, the damage that smoking can cause has been documented widely. A recent study has now revealed that these children have an increased risk of developing […]

Chanel’s No.1 for me

IT’S not often that something endures as much as one of my favourite designers, someone who changed the face – and lifestyles – of those fashionistas, many years ago. I’m talking, of course, about the one-and-only Coco Chanel, whose empire turns 100 this year. Most of us may never have owned one of her most-stylish […]

A fat chance of slimming down

A NEW report, urging people to stop counting calories and eat more fat to tackle obesity, has sparked a huge backlash from food experts. For years, dieticians have advocated that we cut down on the amount of fat we eat, inspiring many people to adopt low-fat diets. Now, however, the story seems to be changing, […]
