.....Talking about bizarre situations,although I've retired,those very
nice folks at Romec were due to pay a bonus on the 17 March and
that they would keep me on their books until the bonus was due.
I have still yet to receive this bonus,on full salary until the bonus is
payed and retired at the same time....I'm not complaining at all :-))

How very bizarre Derek, still if you're being paid for doing very little.......: )

Well the continuing saga of my voluntary redundancy took a new twist today when, having encouraged me to apply, the company decided they couldn't afford to let me go (their redundancy budget for this quarter had insufficient funds left to cover my payout). So as of the 1st May, I'll have no work to do, but will remain a fully paid employee of while I wait to see what happens next. Hopefully there will be another opportunity next quarter with a new budget, if not, no idea what happens as they're unlikely to be able to find me a job I'm prepared to accept.

At least I'll have time to catch up on my backlog of music listening while I'm waiting, poised to leap into action if my company needs me!

And of course Kingsdown is in Stratton St Margaret and Kingsdown is the home of Arkells.

Probably easier than for trains that have already left the station. Midgies aren't really a bother til June. Had some mozzie bites but it's subzero now and they've all given up. Acid supplies running low and grass has run out, not sure when that Candyman is coming round, but daresay I can find some whisky...:)~

Not a lot, I fancy, but curious about the Puffanette's tipple.
Even as a non ale fancier, feel I should lay in a few bouteilles of the old FotD. Would seem churlish not to in the circumstances.
Time you got out on the open road, Wharfy, put out that thumb. It's a serious game this retirement malarkey and if you don't make it up to Scotland soon it'll be winter again.

Puff's tipple was VB's but he's now into 'proper beer'....don't
know if the occasional wine fancies his palate!

edit: more excellent ale tonight... Salisbury Plain,it's 5.2% and
a grate pint it is too.

Decided to save FOTD for another day, as I have a ripe Camembert that is beginning to out-stay its welcome, and it needs some red wine to go with it, so I am enjoying a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot. Sounds French but in fact it's Australian, and I do have a liking for Australian wines. Got me wondering whether Puffany ever enjoys a drop of wine or just sticks with the amber nectar?

......small batch volume sales equals pricey,but it's 7.7%!

Edit: we have a Stratton as well and it has Saint Margaret tacked
on the end,some grate place names!

Adrian K says:
Hi Wharfy, I looked it up on a map and it's between Hainford and Stratton Strawless. I know that area fairly well, but the brewery is tucked away off the main through routes. It shouldn't be difficult to get hold of some FOTD, as they do telephone sales, though it looks a bit pricey at £6 for 375ml.

Hi AK,below is the site,if you can get your hands on the pint of 'FOTD' let
me know how it taste etc.......

Edit: sampled 'Orange Blossom' and the 'Fox' at some of
the beer festivals I've attended,but so far not 'FOTD'

Edit: Based in Hainford AK,the malting barley is from Wells-NTS.
might be even nearer where you hang out!.
(seven miles north of Norwich)

Hi Wharfy, that's very interesting, as Wells-Next-The-Sea is in my neck of the woods. Haven't heard of them before, so they may be fairly new.

Edit: looks like they have been around for about 3 years. I need to get out more!

Mornin' Puff

'Friend of the Devil',brewed by Ole Slewfoot Brewery down by Wells-Next-to
the Sea and it's around 7.7%.Brewed from an ancient Belguim recipe.
Haven't got round to that one yet! but as to the name,might have to apply

That's cool, dude - probably better walkabout than driveabout in your case..;-)

Puffany says:
G'day all. I hope yez are all well.
I have only gone walkabout, China. Not hiding, nor anything wrong with the poota, but still not a poota regular. Therefore I will go missing occaissionally even without disruptions - even more so lately than usual. Funny enough, I've just noticed that I started a thread and forgot about it shortly just don't go hand in hand.....apparently! Which brings me to 'Old Fart' beer - didn't quite do it for me. However, i have locked onto our best voted beer of late - 'Little Creatures' - nice drop. I'm on the 'Fat Yak' at the mo and that rocks as well. Are you tuned into this Wharfy?
Good to see the next Dave is on its way. Musicwise, I have had my quietest start to the year for at least 5 years. I have to admit that i've hardly given GD a listen so far this year. I reckon i'm still overwhelmed by E72 - no doubt I'll fire up again at some stage.
Aye China - Elton was the weakest gig i've seen probably since Marilyn Manson in his peak in the 90s!

Rock on all!

Wharfy - that backdoor penetration sounds more than dodgy. Better go easy on the ale - you never know what's coming up behind you.

china cat says:
surely did, Cornish - and time you made it up for the Scottish Lunch Club!

Puffany still missing in action? Having seen the prices for foreign name bands in Melbourne (courtesy Val on Night Owls) I'm not surprised. Still paying off that Elton gig.

Giving DP32 a go.

DLPV2 from 74 - looks like a winner to me, but no doubt you've all had the email!

Hi nc
You have a grate time over there and above all enjoy yourself...
if you happen to go to Napa,Phil Lesh still hangs out there and not
far away Mickey Hart is in Sonoma but nearer is Bob Weir who as
far as I know still lives in San Rafeal...and to top the icing might
meet them at 'Terrapin'......I'm totally envious!!!!!!!
But above all have a GRATE TIME over there.

Edit: some Grate wines come from Napa Valley!!!!

You can't say I haven't been working on them, subtlely of course.

Wow nc, we'll make a Deadhead of you yet, and to think that you already know the place!

Enjoy you trip ;-)

(If it keeps on like this, we'll soon have the Scottish Lunch Club here!)
