Christmas Craziness

Farm creates £665 multibird roast.

Read it... amazing, funny and quite sickly.
Thanks to Paul C for directing me to this wonderful bird!

Elf family

No Merry Christmas at the pub!

Years ago, it was tradition to meet at the pub on Christmas eve. Everyone went. Christmas was the time of year when everyone came home and you'd meet heaps of old school friends.
For one reason or another, I haven't been for about 5 years. Couldn't be bothered last year and the two years previous to that, I was in Japan and Thailand. I regretted missing last year as quite a few school mates made it out.
We endeavoured to go this year... We were all partially excited and left home with full bellies at around 10pm... The first pub was empty so we kept walking. We arrived at the 'Commercial' to be greeted by the door bouncer. He quickly told us that the pub was in 'lock down' No-one was allowed in. He said that it was too busy (from where we were, the place was empty). After a while he said that he was going to look the other way and if we were quick, we could go in. In we went. There was NO-ONE there of my era. We finally found a couple of friends that were three years behind me at school. We chatted for a while and went home.
Curiosity satisfied and I don't feel the need to ever go there again!
