Home is…

A slice of a manor house near Arundel, built from already old bricks in 1640. The house was seconded by the Royal Navy from 1940 to 1947 then sold to a local builder who divided it into four individual homes, each with its own entrance and gardens. I’ve written 40 books here. Two previous occupants, Logan Pearsall Smith and Geoffrey Moss, wrote 20 more – and better ones – between them!

Amazon Halo: Shines as Activity and Sleep Tracker

Lots of fitness trackers can measure your calories burned, heart rate, and steps. With the Halo, Amazon wants to give you greater visibility into your overall health, along with actionable insights to help improve it. The Halo does an excellent job of monitoring your activity and sleep, and its companion app gives you access to a wide range of workouts and wellness programs. In addition, the Halo can analyze the tone of your voice to tell you how you sound to other people and measure your body-fat percentage based on images taken with its app. These two features are a bit gimmicky, but the Halo band is otherwise useful when you’re looking to move more and improve your shut-eye.
