Every day, twice a day, the broad sweep of Swansea Bay in South Wales presents a different face to the world. When the tide is high waves lap along its the three-mile promenade. When it ebbs a vast expanse of sand and mud stretches out half a mile to meet the line of the sea.

But the height of that tide, averaging twenty eight feet daily, is the reason a pioneering power company has chosen the area for a world’s first - the prototype of a giant lagoon to generate electricity from the awesome mechanical energy of the tide.

Swansea Bay has been a part of my life since I was a boy and I cherish memories of walks along its palm-lined promenade with my parents. The bay curves away from the entrance to the once bustling coal port of Swansea to the rocky headland of the Mumbles with its iconic Lifeboat station.

Hurray! Bohemianmojo has a puppy. Nine-week-old Brig is a working Cocker Spaniel and like most pups she’s cute and adorable but also very naughty and time consuming. We’d forgotten just how much care and attention pups require but it all came flooding back, literally, in pools of pee and deposits of poo. Surely you know your world has shifted seismically when you reach out for some kitchen roll to clean up a wee and think it’s a triumph because you’re just in time to slip it under a tiny bottom to field a poo! Even describing dog excrement as ‘poo’ shows we’ve gone temporarily soft in the head when the foul stuff is the bane of public parks and streets.

Fasten your seat belts because motorists are heady for a roller coaster ride and whether you realise it or not; its already begun. Coming soon to a filling station forecourt near you - the Battle of the Batteries is about to ramp up as nations and international car makers start to consign the internal combustion engine to the history books.

Swedish carmaker Volvo announced that it will end production of internal combustion engines by 2020. France has announced it will ban all petrol and diesel engines from its roads by 2040.  Much smaller Norway hasn’t announced it yet but their aiming for 2025, the Netherlands too, and some German States are looking at 2030.

Have you ever had those moments where you just happen to be in exactly the right place at exactly the right time?   My foray into the world of organics came at a time when I was just beginning to shift my whole prespective on health and wellness. I was in school full time and needed a job that would accomodate my school schedule. I just happened to land one with the State of California’s Dept of Health and Human Services. What would I be doing? Running the organic food desk. What’s an organic food desk? That’s what I asked too.

What price indeed. At Bohemian Mojo we decided it was high time we looked at the mind-boggling hypocrisies that surround food safety.  It’s a big subject but after some recent happenings we thought it might be time to give you our take on what’s really happening out there

Food safety is defined by the World Health Organisation as ‘thehandling, preparation, and storage of food in ways that prevent food borne illness along the entire chain from farm to plate. According to the WHO that includes guarding food from chemical contamination.

If you are one of those people who ends the day with a sigh, an ever burgeoning to-do list, and a bewildering feeling that time has accelerated beyond your comprehension then this article is for you. It's all about TIME and why it flies. Some argue that time is simply a construct of the civilized world and ultimately has no influence on your general health or well-being. On the other hand there are those who argue that time is indeed accelerating as our planetary orbit shifts alignment with the Cosmos. Perhaps both theories are true, all I know is that lately time has become a MAJOR topic of conversation with clients, friends, and loved ones.
