It seems even our American cousins are awed by Bradford City's magnificent achievement all those years ago. They were so impressed, they named their entire company after it. This is quite understandable of course, if a trifle puzzling. Why do these New Yorkers care about The Lads so much? We'll never know. But I for one am pleased that they do.

Quite an impressive achievement from the Russian Fella. Imagine their surprise the first couple of times he came back to life. I suppose they must have got used to it eventually. Either that or they hated him so much, they had a medic on standby to revive him just so they could shoot him dead again...

Only £7,200 a bottle, it's a bargain! What I don't really understand though, is a standard 75cl bottle of Cristal 2002 is £290, and six litres is equivalent to 8 bottles, so I could buy exactly the same amount of overpriced champagne for £2,320 if I went for the more convenient to refrigerate normal sized bottles. Or to put it another way, I could buy 24 bottles of exactly the same overpriced champagne for the same money as the giant bottle. Could it be the bottle is worth £5,000? Because it doesn't look that great.

...giant plastic snails in the lobby! Courtesy of the Golden Tulip Noailles in Paris. You might think it's a little weird, I certainly did, but as a marketing strategy it was spot on (for me.) As soon as I saw the pictures on their website I knew that was where I wanted to stay.
It also helps if you have an army of plastic gummi bears watching you through the window!
