Think warm thoughts

Heat bars and heat lamps

Heated towel bars in the bathroom add warmth and do double duty by keeping towels warm in winter and drying them in summer. Heat levels can be adjusted on some models and boosted in the cooler months. Buy a heat lamp for the bathroom that can be mounted as a separate unit or replace the existing ceiling light.

Women who reached the top

This week Women in Business by David Evans

This book is about five women who became exceptionally rich through business.

You might wonder what's so special about that. The answer is that business, even today, is dominated by men. It's still hard for women to make it to the top, or start a business.

A time and a place

A family of four, perched precariously on their moped, buzzes along the water's edge on a beach in Vietnam.

A farmer ushers his herd of water buffalo onto the sand; the beasts crunch shells under hoof as they amble to fresh pastures.

'It's a 24-hour job as I'm on call all the time. I get up at 6.30am because then I have time to read the newspapers, usually The Daily Telegraph and The Times. I check the births, marriages and deaths so I can ring clients when I get to the office and congratulate them if they've had a child or commiserate if their husband has died.
