MONACO GRAND PRIXVIEW

A short guide for a very short trip and handy hints for dealing with volcanic ash.

We're about to tackle the shortest back to back in the history of the sport, given that Monaco practice gets underway on Thursday, with just three days to get ready, after the Spanish Grand Prix.

What can you do in this short space of time?

You could listen to the shortest songs in the world, starting with 10 seconds of "You Suffer" by Napalm Death... or "Stay" by Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs, the shortest song to reach No. 1 in the pop charts...

....what about watching the shortest ever film to be nominated for an Oscar. "The Critic" a 1963 cartoon by Mel Brooks...

Maybe you want to read a book, so here is some suggested reading matter that shouldn't take you too long to get through:

1. "Everything men know about women"
2. "A guide to Australian etiquette"
3. "How to cook Sushi"
4. "How to train cats"

But the best way to pass the time quickly is to concentrate on everyone's favourite subject right now...

Ash, specifically volcanic ash.

Work through the English alphabet and see how many ways you can think of for getting rid of the biggest cloud in our lives.

Bash - hit it with a hammer
Cash - pack it up and sell it
Dash - run away from it
Hash - roll it up and smoke it
Mash - serve it up with sausages
Rash - get an itch and scratch it away
Sash - be a beauty queen and wear it
Tash - put some under your nose and look cool
Wash - the easiest way to get rid of it
