Wimborne Square this morning
Really Cool Coolers



Look what I found on Ebay!   A 1948 F-1 American Pick Up cooler (£499), which would certainly be a talking point when having friends round for afternoon drinks.   It is made of recycled oil drums and has 3 compartments to hold your beer and wine.  

You can also add to the collection an airstream caravan and a very cool looking VW Splity.

Elizabeth Taylor's Palm Spring Home for Rent



If you are seeking Hollywood holiday glamour, why not book yourself a stay at the Casa Elizabeth in Palm Springs.  In the mid-1950s, Elizabeth Taylor and her third husband, Mike Todd, rented this 4-bed property.   Kirk Douglas was their next door neighbour.
