    There's a bloke in our village known as Captain Scarlet, because he's definitely on the spectrum. His mate is called Slinky because everyone wants to push him down the stairs.

    Yes many years ago when he first started blogging I was probably the first to out him as a guy doing a spoof blog and had a feeling he was an existing blogger who wanted to stir it up a bit.

    The governor at my local Harvey's pub has said that Harveys have put all of their tenants on a rent free period until the lockdown is over.

    This pub's doing it right

    "A BELFAST pub is pulling out all the stops - and the pints - to keep spirits up for those living in lockdown with a door-to-door Guinness delivery service."

    ...by drinking the stock..

    "I am currently isolating with my two mates - last night we drank 24 bottles of Magners and 24 cans of Carlsberg lager.

    "This is what we are doing virtually five days a week - I own three pubs so I've been moving the stock to home for us to drink."

    The Stag is doing take-aways (and food too) though I think you need your own container for keg and possibly cask; Deliveroo seem to be collecting from the pub. See last photo and website.
