I am a big fan of cooking. I will be releasing my own Receipe blog soon (honest) but until then you'll have to put up with the recipes I'm sharing on my Cookery Facebook page. One thing I have started to do with my food recently when I'm cooking is to season it a lot more – apparently that can make or break a meal! And while salt and pepper go a long way to making your dinner yummy you may want to think about Tumeric – not only is it a great seasoning for a varieity of foods but it's also a super-food – although I'll take that with a pinch of (garlic) salt!
My Mum passed her driving test quite late in life – I think I was about 14 when she got her first car. Back then, as was the case when I took my driving test, the “maintenance” aspect of your driving test consisted of where the wiper lever was and how to fill up the wash bottle – nothing about checking the oil, replacing a fuse or even changing a tyre!
Due to my Mum's lack of basic car maintenance knowledge, my Dad and I would spend an hour a week (at least) under the bonnet or chassis of my Mum's car trying to fix something – this stood me in good stead when I got my own car as it would break down a fair bit, but where's the fun in it being a smooth operator?

I'm never sure what to make of Instagram; it's like I get it and then all of a sudden it changes again – it dosen't help that no-one ever “friends” me. Anyway, if you're running a business the it's worj your while checking out 99firms to get some great advice on using Instagram to drum up business.
So you have post-it notes everywhere? A white board with more crossing out than there is text? If that's the case you'll need to get yorself organised and Team Gantt can help you with that!
