I was shocked to learn that Will Stringer passed away today.
I met Will through Mark Steele, his cousin, who is a friend of ours here in Dubai. Will had been working with the FCO in Oman and Dubai. He joined us on a few trips and evenings out, the most recent being Mark’s stag do, less than a year ago. I liked Will a lot, even though I didn’t see that much of him. One of those people you think would be a good friend if the time and circumstances allowed.
He had been suffering from leukaemia and was back in the UK for treatment. He leaves behind a wife and two small children.
I was sorry to read that Judith Durham has suffered a stroke.
I hope she gets better soon. I’d love to see her in concert, but I doubt she’ll be coming to Dubai.
So ZZ Top make it to Bethlehem but have still not played in Dubai? I think this attitude lets their fans down.
This has to be the oddest diet advice I have ever seen on the pages of Gulf News.
Ten litres a day, with little change to diet or exercise?
This chap must have spent most of the day on the loo.
This would be fun on a t-shirt.
From a trip in 2004 – never made it back more than one and a half times after that, despite planning to go every year.
This is quite a cool move.
I can’t wait to see these super cars driving around my area at the speed limit of 40Kmph.
