Oh No, Friday 13th

Had a great day yesterday, Mike Harding popped in at lunchtime. I saw him a few times a few years back and it was good to actually meet him. Such a nice fella and you can still hear his folk show on the radio at five on a Sunday here The Mike Harding Folk Show . Then I got to try the Hawkshead Black Hop which is next up in The Snug. A pint of true black hoppy delight.

A few of us are planning a trip to watch Real Madrid v Almeria on 29the April. The game is on the Wednesday and we will be in Madrid from Monday to Thursday. If you are interested please get in touch asap. Cost will be around £150 for flights and accommodation.

So then, what's on the bar today? Here we go:

Marble-Lagonda 5%
Fuzzy Duck-Winter Waddle 5%
Stockport-Bitter Lemon 4.2%
Twickenham-Redhead 4.1%
Merrie City-Cascadian 4%

Lilley's-Darkcider 7.5%
Gwatkins-No Bull 4.5%

I first learnt the following poem at Xaverian, Manchester in about 1973. Little did I know I would later hear it on a Cream album.
