Chinese Recipes

What a great forum post I stumbled across the other day… it includes some authentic sounding Chinese recipes. I’m definitely going to be giving some of these a try some time soon!


Tepilo – free property web site

The official line is: “Check out Sarah Beeny’s smarter way to buy, sell or let your home. It’s called and it’s free to upload your home. It’s also got loads of property advice from Sarah. Click the following link to view now

It actually sounds like quite a good concept and should do a lot to combat the extortionate prices of estate agents. With wider uptake, this could definitely be a useful resource… certainly one I’ve bookmarked for the future anyway!

News sites

Unlike The Times that has recently moved behind its paywall ( there are still some excellent resources available online for free news.

The Guardian is one of the best available ( and also offers the ability to interact through posting comments on some of its stories. I’ve been actively involved in the Environmental section (, specifically commenting on issues to do with energy efficiency.

LinkedIn Super Guide

I’ve been researching LinkedIn as part of another project and came across this great resource billed as a LinkedIn Super Guide that includes Tutorials, Tips & Advice, and Tools links to different web sites and blogs. It’s definitely worth checking out:  HERE (published 12th May 2009).

Weird, but funny web site!

Not that I particularly endorse this web site, but it makes for some ‘interesting’ and entertaining reading! Facts about Poop is well worth a visit – especially the Survival Guide for Taking a Dump at Work and the Poop Definitions!

Free printing / artwork templates

I’ve found a good resource that I use regularly to source artwork  or printing templates for some design work that I carry out.

The site is affiliated with one of the low cost printing companies I use – Stress Free Print – and you can get to it HERE.

The site, Tom the Printer, includes various templates and sizes for the following generic designs:

  • Flat Leaflets / Flyers
  • Folded Leaflets / Flyers
  • Presentation Folders
  • Stationery
  • Business Cards
  • Greetings Cards
  • Tent Cards
