    Monday Morning - Stockport Pub Crawl - The Aftermath

    The Olde Vic was the last pub of the crawl, and they'd all been good ones thanks mainly to Trainman's recommendations. We took the short walk back to the station and caught the 8:20 back to...

    Monday Morning - Stockport Pub Crawl - The Main Event Part II

    The next pub was actually off the map but we found it quite easily. The guys were convinced I'd got it wrong and that the pub must be called the Railway Porter but on arrival we found that it was...

    Monday Morning - Stockport Pub Crawl - The Main Event Part I

    We initially got off to a bad start following trainman's instructions to leave the station via the exit by Platform 6, we could only find 4 :confused: But we got it right in the end and headed down...

    Monday Morning - Stockport Pub Crawl - The Pre-amble

    Are we really in danger of losing this Test Match to cricketing minnows Bangladesh. We seemed to be determined to play for the draw from the first ball and the run rate is something akin to an...

    Sunday Morning - Another Day Another Beer

    Today is the day of the Stockport pub crawl. I'm still not sure what route we'll be taking but I think trainman's suggestion of doing the Crown first is a good one, then we'll try to get to as many...

    Sunday Morning - Reviewing a 'Quiet' Day

    My apologies for not providing your nightly entertainment yesterday, I didn't even fire up the magic box last night, you can blame ROBCamra for that. After four days on tour I had rather 'hit the...

    Sunday Morning - These Foolish Things Remind me of You

    When you've had a long day drinking, as we did on Friday, it's usually half way through the next day when you start remembering what happened and people bring up events in conversation that you...

    Saturday Morning - The Rain it Raineth Every Day (It's the Law)

    How it pours, pours, pours, in a never ending sheet
    How it drives beneath the doors, how it soaks the passer's feet
    How it rattles on the shutter, how it rumples up the lawn
    How 'twill sigh and...

    Saturday Morning - The Gloria Gaynor moment (I Will Survive)

    I'm not particularly good this morning, but nothing that a double shot of Resolve Extra shouldn't sort out. The remnants of a fish supper are in evidence which I have vague memories of picking up on...

    Friday - The Long Road Ahead

    Well, what might today hold. If it's anything like usual we'll meet up in the Wetherspoons on Deansgate (not as bad as the one on Piccadilly) and from there we'll trawl around Manchesters pubs trying...

    I called into Bar Fringe last night and had a half but it's really the sort of place you want to stay awhile and explore what's on offer. Maybe when Grailhunter arrives we'll go back.

    Friday - Cheltenham Bets

    Well I've just checked the return on yesterday's bets and they hold not one single solitary penny, not even a Matabele Barter Bead. But am I downhearted, no I'm not. I've decided to follow the same...

    Friday - a Fine Manchester Morning

    Well that's a phrase I never thought I'd use. Not that I can see much of it stuck up here with the Gods. It does however mean I'm closer to the sun and can see it raising it's weary head for the...

    No further success at Cheltenham so it looks like I won't be collecting.

    Just seen Albertas Run romp home in the 2:40 at 14/1, now need Sentry Duty to do the same in the next and I might actually be in credit with Messrs Ladbrokes.

    I'm glad it wasn't just me then. It didn't taste off just bloody awful, a sort of astringent herby ethanol taste, difficult to describe really.

    I'm sure A understood that the chance to see the lesser-spotted Morgan was not one that should be passed up.

    Thursday Morning - Wet & Windy

    Not sure what the weather's like.

    Didn't get around to having a bet yesterday and looking at the Cheltenham results that's probably a good thing. I may have backed Kalahari King each-way but that...
