Charter 3 year price lock
AFTER seven years of cutting costs, ditching nights out and living at home with her dad, Helen Frampton can finally call herself a homeowner. The chartered surveyor, 28, bought her four-bed detached house in the Daventry countryside for £277,500 in January last year. Helen set herself a goal of buying her own home by the time she turned 30 so started saving during her last year of university. It wasn't until she got her first job after graduating and rented a place with her friend that she began to seriously set her sights high.

Locked for millions of years in ice sheets smothering the White Continent, fresh water is flooding and diluting our oceans – and I’m seeing it in real time with my own eyes. Trundling at an idle speed, we trawl a net behind us, collecting samples of phytoplankton, a microscopic marine plant heavily affected by changes in salt … [Read more...] about Blue Planet is back – here’s how to visit the incredible locations
In respect of the current Trump inspired and organised attempted coup de'etat in Venezuela it is illegal under international law, illegitimate under any democratic measure and immoral politically. Trump represents darkness. Maduro represents democracy.

In a country with the largest oil reserves in the planet, such statistics were shameful and, to many, unacceptable. © AP Photo / … [Read more...] about Whose Side Are You On – Trump or Maduro?
