Thanks for checking out The Shed Online. We've just added some new content to our site as part of our May, mid-month update.
From the Blog
- Sunday Too Far Away (1975): First, a couple of new film reviews. Have a look in our blog to read about "Sunday Too Far Away" from 1975. Starring Jack Thompson, it tells the story of workers on a sheep station in the Australian outback.
- Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011):And, from just last year, there's a review of "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" which has just come out on DVD. It's a story of espionage, set during the Cold War, starring Gary Oldman. Try renting either of these movies yourself, and see if you agree with what our reviewer has to say.
- Fruit skewers: The next in our series of cooking activities looks at a novel way to serve fruit. Tom shows us how to put together fruit skewers. You might want to give these a go next time you invite guests around for a barbie.
