    Any Skiers about?

    I'm planning a family skiing trip over the winter and, having never been before, need to stock up on ski wear for me and my 4 year old. I've got a fair idea of what I need but could do with some pointers on where to get it. Any suggestions for brands / shops to go for or to avoid?

    How to confuse a welsh cyclist!

    Blue on Blue

    I may be doing them a great dis-service here as I haven't done any deep research but has anyone else noticed that in all the "friendly fire" incidents reported since the invasion of Iraq it's always the Americans getting it wrong?

    A discerning ear?

    James, my 3 year old monster is already a bit of a brass fan. He knows that I play the trombone so, at the moment, all brass music is "Trombone music".
