can someone recommend a simple bracket for when I use my trusty (diffused) 420EX flash, to get it off camera?

Any flash bracket will do, just use something like the Manfrotto 482 or 492LCD mini ball-head to allow free aim of the flash.

Another way to do it is attach a mini ball-head to a tripod ring on the lens, with the foot of the tripod ring at 10 o'clock rather than 6.
