it like a data stick except it works by WiFi - you can share the
public folder with an ip address to anyone on the internet so they can
drag files from your iPhone onto their computer or really handy if you
want to totally secure and password protected. Amazing and free too,
just wish they would allow you to attach to email as I carry around in
my phone all my important docs - scans of birth certificate etc in
case I forget who I am or what sex I am etc.

I love reading the New York Times online - its full of really great stuff and one of the chef's on there Mark Bittman makes a great contribution every week you can check out his page HERE there is some great videos there too with simple but great cooking. He has also written a really thorough Vegetarian cookery book which I cannot recommend highly enough its one of the best books I have used packed with hundreds of recipes - 600 pages!HERE

Hackney is changing fast. In 2001 when I first moved here the streets were awash with discarded fried chicken boxes, now the streets are littered with empty sushi boxes (Fairtrade!)
now there is a podcast pouring local information straight through your ooko and into your gullivar via the iMac...its all good news....very enjoyable - shame Jules Pipe wouldn't have inhaled helium stood on a see saw whilst he responded to the questions on the Olympics that would have been funny....
give it a listen....

Had a wonderful lunch at Brasserie Blanc yesterday and Raymond himself turned up - I have wanted to meet him for 10 years having being inspired by his book 'Blanc Vite' and my subsequent visits to Le Manoir and Brasserie Blanc's . I didn't take many pictures but here is some of Eric's superb cheese. For more information about Brasserie Blanc's click HERE and Eric's cheese which you can now order online HERE
