StevenHawkingA year or two ago I went to see `The Theory of Everything`, the beautiful film about the life of Stephen Hawking, the Cambridge University physicist who died this week aged 76.
Before going I had been apprehensive that a film about a man in a wheel chair might be, well a little depressing. I was wrong. Eddie Redmayne is an outstanding actor with a Daniel Day-Lewis like ability to `inhabit` his character. But above all what a character, what an inspiring life Hawking had!

my car is my best friendI don’t know about you, but although my car is my best friend, I must confess I know little about it. I know where it hangs out, that it always looks good and that it never fails me; I can tell a steering wheel from a tyre, yet if it starts to cough or to choke and I need to take a peek under the hood, I have to admit I’m a bit lost. I can’t seem to become my best friend’s super-hero, so how am I supposed to rescue it if it gets into trouble?

Simple answer: by avoiding trouble!

Apart from regular maintenance and the mandatory inspections, the first thing you need to look out for are the panel lights: if they’re off, hit the road; if one (or more) is on, hit the brakes: your car is trying to reach out to you.

At this point, you’ll be fully aware of the benefits of communication in a relationship.
