To lend a helping hand to fellow snickerdoodle (and pie and charcuterie and cheese plate) lovers, here are five strategies to help you avoid overeating while still savoring every moment of all the holiday parties to come.

What is a shed?

A lovely piece by Tara Ward at The Spinoff looks at the question that dogs the Shed of the Year competition each year. She argues that to make it to the finals, a shed must be unique, include interesting historical features, enjoy a pleasant outlook, and - controversially - be able to survive nuclear fallout. Here's a snippet: Dylan Thomas’ writing hut sits perched on a cliff in Wales, enveloped by the calming serenity of the sky and sea. In Scotland, a boat wheelhouse shed gazes out into the wild North Sea and feasts upon a view of dolphins and submarines. It’s so inspiring and beautiful I want to cry tears of tiny cabin joy. My shed looks onto a brick wall. I imagine it’s like being in prison. Probably not to everyone’s taste, but neither is a shed driving ninety miles an hour down a racetrack. Well worth a browse. -------------------------------------------------------- Friday posts are sponsored by Warwick Buildings , manufacturers of outstanding quality timber buildings.

The massive natural sinkholes, all of which had been previously undiscovered, have geologists concerned about what may have caused them and how many more might occur in the future. Ongoing research continues, but early opinions suggest these sinkholes were formed over exceptionally long periods of time, and aren’t necessarily an indication of future danger. The sinkholes were discovered...
