Located on Swansea’s Castle Street, Cinema & Co is an eclectic hub for movie lovers and nostalgia aficionados alike.

Star Wars Day 2021: A review of the official cookbooks

The Battle of Endo(r) – A geek’s perspective on life with endometriosis [updated March 2021]

Admiral, there be Wales here!

Happy St.David’s Day! On the 1st March each year, Welsh people across the quadrant celebrate the rich culture and identity of Wales.

Raktajino to go!

I have always admired the on-board travel mugs used by the crew of the USS Defiant (NX-74205).
