Pub news.

A few things have been brought to my attention over the past week or so. Too minor to warrant their own posts, but when put together they have a little substance.

Take the seemingly innocuous mobile phone charger. I'm sure 99.9% of you have one. They are compact and easy to use, the small bit goes into the phone, the big bit goes into the wall socket. Flick switch and BINGO it charges!

Or does it?

If, after five hours the phone is still flat something must be wrong.

"Jez, it's broke", said Di.

"Have you plugged it in?"

"Yes, look."

"Try the big end too!"



A couple of days ago Jez had a barrel of Pedigree bitter that wouldn't clear properly. This is not unheard of as Pedigree is a difficult ale to keep, and many factors can affect it.

Jez was telling Di about this problem and said he thought the atmospherics may have affected the beer in the cellar.

"We've got ghosts?", she asked.

It really helps - in fact the phone would charge MUCH quicker! I's nice to know madness is still about John!

Pedigree comes from home town - I used to buy it in bottle unlabelled off the back of a drey - and in all the local pubs...

Di has you fooled, John G, she's only saying this stuff to see what you'd say about her behind her back haha.
