“I was lucky I had older siblings,” says Oliver Cole, as he begins to recount his personal journey as a musician growing up in Kells. I had a brother, who had a heavy metal band & they used to rehearse in the garage above our house, so I was always around music. From an early age I was trying to play music, I was always of the mindset ‘I can do better than that’.

Some people just want to watch the magic but from the moment I heard music I wanted to do it. ". “I see it with my students,” says Cole, who is currently passing on his musical knowledge as a tutor in BIMM. There was the guitar player in my brother’s band but he didn’t.

It was the corner hardware store of the tech revolution, a nerd fountainhead for the do-it-yourselfers who invented Silicon Valley.

"I remember going up and down the rows at Radio Shack just looking at resistors," said Steve Wozniak, who built the first Apple computer by hand, then co-founded the most successful electronics company...
updated 10/5/2007 1:48:30 PM ET2007-10-05T17:48:30 When I got into the travel business back in the '90s, I had no idea where it would take me, but over the years, I've come to specialize in a couple of niche markets: family travel and single-parent travel (in that order, thanks to a divorce in 2000). I have done many television and radio interviews on these topics over the years, and the same six questions keep popping up. So if you are getting a headache trying to figure...
Earlier this week, I covered a tip for lightening your travel load by making your AirPort Express Base Station serve double duty as a USB charger.

So as much as I want...
