Breakfast in Cascais

If you're in and around Cascais you'll not do better than seeling out the Beefeater for your fry up breakfast.

Yes, OK, I'm biased, as it is run by friends, but it's Cascais' British Pub of choice.

All the usual foods, Portuguese and British, from the fry up to the cornish pasty.

They've also got large screen TVs for all the sporting events and the usual satellite services to provide them.

TinTin and the Two Directors

Looks like we're going to be getting some Tintin movies:

Peter Jackson is getting involved in another trilogy taken from a series of beloved books - Belgian comic-strip hero Tintin.

Only this time he's directing just one of the films and getting some help from a certain Steven Spielberg.

The film-makers are teaming up to make three digital 3D features using the performance-capture technology developed for The Lord of the Rings and King Kong.

The film will be made for Spielberg's company Dreamworks, which is also backing Jackson's screen adaptation of bestseller The Lovely Bones.

It's not known who will direct the third film.

OK, I know Tintin is popular, but I'd much rather see some decent Asterix movies made
