AUNTY JEE… I HAVE A PROBLEM

Hello Aunty Jee! I need a little advice about when I should think about having children with my boyfriend. We’ve been together for over 3 years, lived together for over 2 and are planning to stay together for the long run. The only reason I’m thinking about kids now is that I’m 23, but my boyfriend is 32. I feel like I have quite a few years left before I’d feel like an old mum, but I don’t want them to have a super old dad, either. I’d like us…

TAROT WITH SHRUTI – Shahid Afridi

Shahid Afridi broke into international cricket at the age of 16. In doing so, he inspired a generation of youngsters. A popular figure in Pakistan and world over, I take a little look into Afridi’s career, his T20 captaincy and his upcoming World Cup performance. Shahid Afridi is trying his best to remain grounded and balanced – what does not come naturally to him is the ability to communicate in the right manner. His emotions override his sensibilities and this inadvertently leads him into trouble. He means well, but then…

Denmark ‘pours $428k’ into researching fictional troll

Denmark’s Council for Independent Research (DFF) will contribute some 2.5 million kroner (US$428,000) into funding research on a fictional troll – an underground being which exists in popular myth on the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea. The troll in question – Krølle Bølle – is the national troll of the island. He has had fans since 1946, when his legend was devised by writer Ludvig Mahler.

CLASSIC TRAILBLAZERS

FORD CAPRI MK III The Capri Mk III was referred to internally as “Project Carla”, and although little more than a substantial update of the Capri II, it was often referred to as the Mk III. The first cars were available in March 1978, but failed to halt a terminal decline in sales. The concept of a heavily facelifted Capri II was shown at the 1976 Geneva show: a Capri II with a front very similar to the Escort RS2000 (with four headlamps and black slatted grille), and with a…

Is it a dog, a badger or an old fox? Well, experts think this may be the first sighting of a raccoon roaming free on Tyneside.

Wildlife experts believe it is the first recorded sighting of the wild beast in the area. Tom Hughes, 22, was running through the grounds of Wallsend Hall at around 7am when something caught his eye.

Breeder ordered to get rid of noisy birds

When Peter Hammond started breeding parrots at his home, he didn’t expect a squawk of protest from his neighbours. His rural property was a noisy pig farm until recently, and there are other farms in the area. But his hobby has split the village – with angry neighbours complaining of sleepless nights and stress. Now Mr Hammond’s critics appear to have won the battle to have the birds removed, after the local council ruled he had to rehome all of them within six months. Read more
