Whether it’s trying to book a supermarket delivery slot or Zooming a mate or work colleague, us women seem to have become glued to our gadgets. Guilty as charged – it feels like a cricked neck but with added ouch. And it makes clicking noises, which is really what no one needs from their spinal column. It got me thinking of other lockdown lurgies that mainly affect the female of the species. See how many you can tick off.
Fluid retention – the fluid in question being wine. Red, white, rosé, it doesn’t really matter.

California Coastal Road Trip
Like many people around the country, we have had little occasion to travel this year. With car shows and events like the Power Tour and Drag Week postponed and rescheduled due to the coronavirus, we’ve mostly been stuck at home. I recently had occasion to travel to Santa Rosa, California, for a photo shoot with Scott Birdsall, owner/builder of Old Smokey, the Cummins-powered Ford F1 that beat the diesel-engine record at the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb. Motor Trend’s William Walker was the shooter, with me serving as assistant and camera car driver. It seemed like as good excuse as any to make a trip out of it.
