    I may have to crack open that bottle of Jack D that has been sitting in the cupboard for a couple of years!

    If you resolve to give up smoking, drinking and loving, you don't actually live longer; it just feels like it.

    just catching up after a few days without electric in caravan.

    The comment about the ladies sitting in front of the dartboard made me think that a lot of the pubs I do actually see a dartboard in, seem to have tables and chairs in front of the board. Was really suprised in Wylam recently to see a dartboard being used.

    News just in from our Bromyard coresp,corresssp,choress......bloke with a mobile phone.

    Pub Licencees tremble with fear as main income dries up .

    Arwkrite is off the booze for the foreseeable future. After contracting an abcess over a front tooth Arwkrite now sports a face that belongs to a bulldog after being stung by a wasp on the chops. It bloody hurts. Eating and drinking is agony .Got some pills from the Doc ( Are you still drinking too excess?...reply " yes I have more than half a pint at a time " ). I know from previous experience they make beer taste horrible.

    Hey Arky, here's wishing you a speedy recovery. Just think how good that first beer will taste after the anti-biotics. You know what they say - 'Abcess makes the heart grow fonder'.

    I'm tempted to buy the book so I can avoid the listed pubs.

    Dunno who 'lost' oxtail and kidney pudding, but 'e never looked very far. At least two pubs round my way serve it during the winter, usually as a special. Another does o&k pie now and then.
    Pubs are a hobby, real ale is a passion. Oh, and like me dogs, fear no evil..........
