Bono is guest editor of The Independent today, and half of today's revenue will go to fight AIDS. Why not help fights AIDS while getting your news fix today and buy a copy of arguably the best national paper?

Last night we went to see Luke (and some other people, obviously) in My Head Was A Sledgehammer at the Bristol Old Vic. Very avant-garde and abstract but great fun. You can catch it again tonight.

After the glory of coming first in the 'Best Cake Baked By A Man' category in Matt's 'Birthday Spring Fete And Agricultural Show' last year, this years cake could only make second place over the weekend. Still, a good time was had by all and we had some happy hours sampling the various categories and voting. I will have to make cakes more often and get some practice in to ensure future first places.
