A day in Santa Cruz, California!

A day in Santa Cruz, California!

Have you ever heard of Santa Cruz in California? Perhaps not. Have you ever heard of the film “The Lost Boys”, an iconic 80’s vampire romp which just happens to be one of ultimate fave flicks?  I’m guessing most of you 30 and over are at least familiar or have watched it a dozen times like yours truly.  Just one question for you: Team Patric or Team Sutherland???

Restaurant review: ORIGINAL JOE’S, San Jose

Restaurant review: ORIGINAL JOE’S, San Jose

Original Joe’s: a firmly established local eatery dealing in fine Italian foods which came highly recommended by the locals. In fact, I asked four different San Jose residents where I would find the best nosh in town and the vote was unanimous.    Share the...
BlogHer 2014: what I got up to this weekend!

BlogHer 2014: what I got up to this weekend!

What a weekend my Warriors of the World! I’m pooped, worn-out, done in, more tired than a badger on a treadmill but the exhaustion is worth it for I have mixed, mingled, networked, nattered, learned, laughed and made an abundance of wonderful new friends in the process. Some of the these new acquaintances, upon discovering I had flown 11 hours to attend the conference, posed the question: “Are you crazy??” Completely and certifiably insane, I responded. Never denied it! And if being crazy/cuckoo/barmy/bonkers/daft and demented means that I get to have such incredible experiences then I won’t be catching the Sanity Express anytime soon! Share the...
Happy Birthday Warriors of the World!

Happy Birthday Warriors of the World!

Back in November of last year I decided to start a blog. It’s not as if I had been contemplating the notion over a long period of time, on the contrary, the thought came into my mind one day as I was loading the dishwasher and right there and then it was a done deal. I’m not one to waste precious time when a light bulb moment occurs thus the very next day I called a guy called Jamie Clocherty, a local lad and fellow Scot whom I had bumped into a few months previous at a local business gathering in Brackley. He was there promoting his graphic design and website company and from the sample material on show I knew this guy a) had some serious skillz and b) was the man to bring the Ginger Warrior to life! I only had one request of Jamie: “Make me a cartoon”. Share the...
I’ve arrived safe and sound!

I’ve arrived safe and sound!

My dearest Warriors of the World. I write to you from the comfort of my deliciously soft and fluffy hotel bed in the Hotel Fairmont, San Jose, California. I type with weary hands and a less than sharp cerebrum but I was determined I would touch base before my head touches the pillow – more than 2 days away from you and I feel like I’m abandoning my very own offspring. Yup, that’s how much the GW loves you. So I arrived safe and sound despite being ridiculously and embarrassingly close to walking off the plane. It all started with a delay, an annoying and frustrating delay courtesy of British Airways. I arrived to find that my one time favourite airline had oversold my flight and that there was no seat for my little white derriere. Can you Adam and Eve it??  Out of 230 passengers only myself and Jason from Englandshire but now living in San Francisco were left high and dry and seatless.  We were not impressed.  This is the most not-impressed-look we could muster: Share the...
