<b>Sylvester Stallone: Sly Moves</b> I have a thing about posture in the car. If I'm driving, I'll purposely put the seat upright to 90 degrees … and try to drive with my head on the headrest and it is so great for the neck and the spine.

The sly wisdom of action hero Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone might be 66, he might not have made a decent film for a while, and he might talk a bit funny, but could he still have you in a fight? Fuhgeddaboudit!

Totally baked: Two University of Colorado students face jail after feeding classmates pot brownies

Students like to let their hair down at the end of term, but two history undergraduates took the hippy spirit a step too far last Friday - baking their classmates and teacher brownies mixed with marijuana. The pair, both from University of Colorado, face multiple felony charges after a history teacher who ate some of the cakes lost consciousness and other students complained of effects ranging from anxiety attacks to dizziness.

Fitzbillies, 51-52 Trumpington Street, Cambridge

I'm walking through Cambridge at twilight, and there's a touch of magic in the misty air. Lights twinkle distantly behind college windows. Students stream past on bicycles, heading back to their digs. Apart from the fact that most of them are talking on mobile phones, we might have slipped back into another century.

Winteringham Fields' dining room is contrived to be both cosy and elegant

Winteringham Fields, 1 Silver Street, Winteringham, Lincolnshire

Approaching from the east, the first thing you see in the Lincolnshire village of Winteringham, an isolated straggle of houses on the fringe of the Humber, is a sign that baldly declares 'FERRETS'. It is an unlikely milieu for an upmarket 'restaurant with rooms'. Yet there it is at the heart of the village: a slate-topped, two-storey structure, possibly a former Georgian inn, with pantiled extensions. The facilities include a helipad, but our spirits failed to soar on entering Winteringham Fields. Booked in for Friday lunch (three courses £39.95, four courses £45), my wife and I found ourselves deposited in a small, unpopulated lounge. Our refusal to take a drink before the meal was greeted with an expression of surprise ("Oh!") as if apéritifs were pretty much compulsory.
