Watch// Gun Nation, a Guardian documentary, is a sobering look at America's gun owners captured by photographer Zed Nelson 18 years ago for his book of the same name. In this 30 minute film, he returns to the Land of the Free to reshoot and re-examine his subjects. It's powerful stuff, especially in the wake of yet more public shootings in the U.S.A.

Eat// Bossa Grill 2 Cloth Hall Street, Leeds. On Monday I went to it's opening, and WOW. Skewers of delicious meat that you're offered until you say stop, and a Gringo Juice strawberry infused cocktail after my own gringa heart.// Love Brownies, Ilkley. If you're ever in Ilkley, pop in here! The best brownies I've ever tasted in my life, all cooked in their own individual tins!
Visit// This weekend we drove over to Gunnerside, North Yorkshire, through Richmond and Reeth, and a village called Crackpot... Beautiful sights of rural pebbly riverbanks, a Working Smithy museum, topped off by drinking cappuccinos with caramel syrup from the stonewalled village cafe.
