SB

I would have been the same had I been born 200 years ago. I never acquired a taste for ale or beer or stout, and I only drank that if I was in company. I preferred to drink on my own because that way no one else had to keep up with me.

There were companies that I could join in with that didn't feel slighted if I got an extra drink or two between rounds. If I told you that I could see a bottle to a bottle and a half of scotch off on a week night I wouldn't be bragging. I think if I smelt a bottle now I would fall over.

Yet the times that I have drank a good few pints like John did today, I have had no choice if I fell over or not. I just did. Perhaps this is why I steered clear of beer.

Nevertheless the story of Beer and Brewing is an interesting one. Also not forgetting you interest in pubs, well they would have been in short supply without any beer Phil.
Facts such as there is no waste from beer, The Yeast multiplies itself 20 times and that is sold to go into food. The Natural gas that is given off in Brewing is Carbon Dioxide that is sold too. The solid waste that is left goes into animal feed. Now that lot is real recyling.
The Industry until recent times has been one of the Worlds biggest employers. John wouldn't have had so many signs to make. I would think he has done a pub or two.

Morning SB, blimey I started something didn't I.
I have to do it all over again on Thursday, I have to represent the pub at an old boys funeral, Jim was one of our most loved customers.
Dull, dismal, and windy so far, how is it up in brummieland.

Good morning all, it's like being up in the middle of the night. I had a phone call at 7.a.m. this morning from the delivery firm that is delivering a new appliance. What a time to ring anybody, I thought the house was on fire.

John

One thing with me is, once I am up, I am up. There is no going back, I'll just be miserable all day and moan at the wife. So she will probably go and visit one of the kids and leave me to it.

I am not a happy bunny, just had a phone call to say the delivery vehicle has broken down and they don't know what time they can get here. A likely story, so I was awoken at 7.a.m. for nothing.

I have a constant aversion to delivery personnel, if they state AM they will arrive at 11.55. and if they state PM they will arrive at 5.55, that being their normal working day effectively keeping you indoors all day.

I never told you did I, after waking me up at 7 o clock they rang back at 10.a.m. saying they had suffered a break down and would be late arriving. They turned up at 3.p.m. No I didn't give them a tip, which is very unusual for me.
