Connecting a Sony Video Camera to a Macintosh MacBook Pro

Who could have thought it would be such a pain in the ass to make a Sony Handycam Camcorder work with a Mac computer?

Me now. It turns out Sony and Apple disagree over some such rubbish that I don't know about and Sony have deliberately made it difficult in the hope that you will buy a Sony VAIO and their proprietary software. No thanks. The fix is here:

Golf Developments

As the 2008 British Open Golf championship kicks off in Lancashire today, I felt a look at some of the golf developments around the world would be appropriate, especially one of the more spectacular properties close to Royal Birkdale.

Fashion Designer to design Luxury Hotel in Dubai Golf Development

What do Karl Lagerfeld and Paris-based Lebanese designer, Elie Saab have in common? They are both designing property in Dubai now.


Tiger Woods Golf Development in Dubai Becomes Nursery

If any more proof was needed that you can do anything with enough money, the latest news from Dubai regarding the Tiger Woods Golf development should clinch it. The Tiger Woods Dubai, a residential golf course development at Dubailand, is now also planned to become the country’s largest nursery.


Scotland’s Most Expensive Golf Course for Sale?

By any one’s definition of the word “luxury,” a golf course has to be up there. I mean, giving over several acres of prime real estate, covering it with lush, green grass that gets more attention than a new-born infant and persuading a lot of middle-aged men to pay $150,000 for the privilege of knocking a little white ball around with a stick sounds like luxury to me.

Gourmet Summer Recipes

Gourmet recipes do not have to be insanely complex. Just use the best ingredients and follow some simple instructions to create some very simple, high quality summer meals. These are a few recommendations.

Smoked Trout creams - Best steelhead trout recipe

This trout recipe is really special to serve as an appetizer. They really need to be prepared the day before, or at worst, the morning before serving because they need to sit for minimum of six hours before cooking. I much prefer to do them the day before.



Asparagus and Cheese Tart recipe

The wonderful thing about this recipe is the fact that it makes a small amount of Asparagus go a really long way. Where I live, Asparagus is incredibly expensive and this is a good way of making it go further.




Taramasalata - How to make simple Taramasalata
There are very few famous Greek dishes, and Greek cuisine seems sadly neglected by many of the well-known chefs. But Greece has a fabulous history of cooking and there are many wonderful Greek recipes.



Ceasar Salad - How to make the best Ceasar Salad - The original Recipe
Making the perfect Caesar salad is not hard, it just requires a little attention to detail. For me, the perfect Caesar salad has a hint of garlic, a medium flavor of anchovies and a strong taste of parmesan cheese.
