Trending: To all in tents, these have no purpose

Locating your standard-issue navy tent in a festival campsite at three in the morning is an exasperating activity, often ending in an accidental fumble with a stranger when you get into the wrong Eurohike from Millets.

Daylesford Farmshop and Café, Daylesford nr Kingham, Gloucestershire

Daylesford is probably the most famous farm shop in Britain. A retail heaven of organic gorgeousness on the edge of the Cotswolds, it has grown over the past 10 years into something between a mall and a Japanese temple, selling not just food and produce, but clothing, gardening equipment, homeware, yoga classes and spa treatments. Alex James, who lives nearby, once described it in The Independent as "absolutely ridiculous, fantastic and sexy", and gratefully recorded how Daylesford's gentrifying effect had sent the value of his house rocketing.

Diary: How the treatment of Conrad Black bleeds the heart

The vindictiveness of American justice never ceases to astound. Fifty-year sentences under the three-strikes rule for stealing a slice of pizza; chain gangs and weevil 'n' maggot suppers in Alabama; a new craze for charging pregnant drug addicts who miscarry with murder ... we look across the ocean and recoil at the barbarity.

John Walsh: Barbarians at the library gates

A scandal of monumental proportions is about to erupt in the university world. A terrible injustice is about to be done, in the name of money. The high ideal of free enlightenment for all is being sidelined by claims of financial necessity… But no, I’m not talking about the increase in student fees. I’m talking about the imminent dismantling of the Warburg Library.

Ashes Diary: Aussies need to sledge their way back, says Hogg

I guess this is what they call back to basics, Aussie-style. The former Baggy Green pace bowler Rodney Hogg believes the home side need more verbals if they're to reclaim the urn. Hogg, who took 10 wickets in an Ashes Test at Perth in 1978, has some advice for the Australian attack: "Pitch it up with the odd bouncer and sledge them at every opportunity," he says. "We don't say a word [at the moment]. Just go back and bowl another delivery on Jonathan Trott's middle stump so he can whip us through leg. It makes me sick. Hate to think how [fellow former fast bowlers] Lenny Pascoe and Merv Hughes must feel."

Diary: Who will haul Beeb out of post-Hutton abyss?

Against all odds (and we'll come to the betting below), the race to chair the BBC Trust is shaping into a belter. This is not, despite its occupancy by nebbish quangocrat Sir Michael Whatshisname, a trivial post. The winner will be instrumental, for one thing, in deciding who succeeds Mark Thompson as director general, and is faced with hauling the Beeb out of the post-Hutton abyss of cringing cowardice. Paradox attends the two most distinguished candidates. Chris Patten, although a Tory peer, has the confidence and cussedness to resist a Tory-led government. Jonathan Powell, although ineffably New Labour as Mr Tony Blair's long-serving chief of staff, is an archetypal apparatchik whose mission is to speak emollience to power.

Liz Hurley: John Walsh meets Britain's most glamorous farmer

Outside blakes Hotel in London, a vast black limousine is being chamois-leathered by a chauffeur in a peaked cap. This is not a good sight. It means Elizabeth Hurley has arrived before me and is now sitting downstairs in the Chinese Room, haughtily irritated by my lateness.

24-hour room service: Raas, Jodhpur, India

Exploring the province of Rajasthan in northwest India is one big adventure. But part of the joy of travel is mixing the raw, dusty desert experience with a touch of luxury. Which is why I was heading for Jodhpur's newest boutique hotel, Raas. The manner of the approach was unusual: in the back of one of the hotel's two customised sky-blue tuk-tuks, threading through the cobweb of tiny streets that form the city's rosy pink-tinged sandstone old quarter. The tuk-tuk's colour was a nod to Jodhpur's other title: the Blue City (so called due to the proliferation of houses painted this hue, which historically denoted the residences of its high-caste Brahmin population).
