Drew McIntyre

The Drew McIntyre Story Sweat sprays out from his long dark hair as he takes the other wrestler to the floor. A few moments later he is flying through the air to connect with his signature move 'The Claymore'. Fans call out as he pins his opponent for the mandatory three second count. In recent months Ayr-born wrestler Drew McIntyre has put big names Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Finn Balor and Braun Strowman to the sword with his specialist moves.Now living in St Petersburg, Florida, and a leading light of WWE, America's top wrestling brand, he is a long way from his early life in that small, Scottish seaside town. But, the American wrestling scene was where it was always…

Birth; Re-Born Way back at the turn of the millennium, when Y2K turned out to be nonsense, I escaped planes falling out of the sky to graduate in biology. Though my career has went slightly off-piste since then, down a double black diamond trail of economic development, in my heart I’m still a committed science geek. Whilst I am a…

River Garden

Ray of Hope Life, none of us would deny, is often unbearably tough. In those darkest moments we often feel alone, solitary, with no where to turn. But there is help, there are people and organisations we can turn to. So, everyone of us should all be prepared to shout out when that darkness becomes pitch black - there is…

Altered States

Richard K. Morgan & Chris Conner Rebirth - Takeshi Kovacks wakes up after 250 years. His memories and consciousness have been poured into a disc and implanted into the back of the neck of a new body called a 'sleeve'. In the book Altered Carbon, now a Netflix series, Kovacks is brought back to solve a murder.The story escapes from the fertile imagination of the novel's writer Richard K Morgan, reborn and rehashed on the page to take form as a beautifully crafted sci-fi television series produced by Skydance Media and released through Netflix on February 2, 2018. "I mean you are talking about, what?' Morgan pauses to think, gently expels air from his lungs, and calculates time. "Ah, 16…

It’s Kraaampus! Christmas is coming and little expectant faces have no doubt been staring up at you for MONTHS, asking if Santa will bring whatever tat YouTubers have been promoting in the run up to the festive season (elasti-plasti slime anyone?) In the past, I’ve been able to use ‘phoning Santa’ at the first sign of bad behaviour to get…
