Where can I go searching for a volunteer non-executive board member?

My small business needs an independent 3rd party to keep a weather eye on us and ensure we stop slacking. Where should I go looking to find someone experienced who could give us 2 hours of their time every month for next-to-do nothing? [more inside]

London on the super-cheap

Even though I'm totally broke, I'm going to London for nine days at the end of August. Yes, the most expensive time to go. Plane tickets were bought with miles, and I'm staying with friends-of-friends. This is why I'm able to go at all. But I'd like some tips on how to have a good time while spending as little money as possible in a place I am totally unfamiliar with (and I want to bug my hosts as little as possible, too).

Where are some good value for money strip joints in London?

I am a man with certain needs, and yet I am constrained by my most unfortunate financial condition. Where might a discerning gentleman go in London to see the most flesh per pound exchanged? Preferences are given to those establishments with some standards, although if an establishment is less than reputable but has great character, I would be willing to give it a go. One for the memoirs, you understand.

What to do in London after dark?

What should we do in London between 5 - 11 pm this Saturday? We're going for the day to see Seduced at the Barbican and then we'll wander around some charity shops near Victoria or Pimlico until they close. So daytime is easy, but after that, we're at a bit of a loss. Our train leaves around 11pm. [more inside]

Inexpensive housing in London

Is it possible to find inexpensive housing in London? I'd like to spend six months to a year in London researching and writing a book. I have a very limited pension income, plus occasional unpredictable freelance writing assignments. I'm thinking shared housing, a room, a house-sitting arrangement is my only hope. Does anyone have experience or suggestions to share--including how to look for housing from the USA?
