    Now suddenly on 40, a mere 101 behind Quinno at this point in time ,so every chance now of bypassing my projected 50 mark with some room to spare.

    Why was it strange? Apart from being in Wiltshire of course.

    Some strange pubs and strange characters.

    My favourite was the Foresters Arms in Melksham, where the Euro 2016 flags were up, but Germany was replaced by Canada. On enquiry, they said "we're not anti-Semitic!!"

    Three jaunts in the last fortnight have got me up to 190 Quinnos. Though I foolishly asked Dave to re-run the report as I've been busy checking the lists for closures, name changes etc which has seen a some extras appear at the bottom of the list and a few I had already done drop out!

    Potential trip to Leicester next weekend to bag a few more...

    Black Bull is the highest one on the list not yet done (40th) and it is quite interesting how some of these names are heavily clustered around certain areas.

    Currently on 210 Quinnos although the shifting sands of pub closures/renaming have seen me lose about 10 along the way, Oddfellows, Lounge etc have come back into play at a late stage.

    Off to Stoke tomorrow, seeing how close I can get to 230. It's a rich seam up there I discovered after spending a couple of hours compiling a pivot table!

    But you say in the third string of this thread that it's based on 1st January 2016. How is it still moving?

    The clusters thing is interesting and understandable in some cases, when I get the chance next week I'll make a map page that allows you to look at each pub name.

    I did just quickly throw together a quinno hit list map
    http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/stats/ch.../quinnomap.php
    This is the 1600 ish pubs that have one of the names quinno still needs.

    Well done Quinno, you appear to have achieved your aims with some time to spare.
