How to: Build a weights rack

Scattered around my apartment are numerous pieces of equipment; kettle bells, medicine balls, skipping ropes and even some boxing equipment. When 2015 rolled around most of this equipment could be found hidden behind the bedroom door – skulking.

No More Turkey Soup!

When I was about 13 there was a huge upheaval in our family. I announced to the family that I hated soup. I’m still not a huge fan but with experimentation I have narrowed down my loathing of this wet, sloppy excuse for a meal to ones that have “floaty bits” in them.

Leave It Zed!

When you go to puppy training there’s one command that everyone learns in their first class that changes everything. I took Zed to his first class feeling quite proud that we already had “sit”, “down” and “paw” (shaking hands) under our belt.  As soon as our teacher said “LEAVE IT” in a commanding voice I rejoiced! You see Zed is an itsa-bitsa.  A little bit of this and a little bit of that.  Mostly English Staffy which accounts for the willingness to do almost anything for food – even if it’s the wrong thing, plus with a...
