No dice

Oh, I was so looking forward to spending my days and nights at the Super-Doom Casino. The thought of eating microwaved burger & chips whilst glugging Super-T seemed so enticing. Suppose I'll see if Busta has a slot machine so I can 'live the dream'.

Cheap jibes aside, I'm glad we don't have a huge casino here, but in the same way that I'm pleased Mr Patel has made an effort with the once disused Ship Pub, I'd rather have a casino than a huge disused building, but only just.

Ship or Pish? YOU DECIDE!!!!

Got off the 53 bus last night and saw the Ship ablaze with fun, frolics and gay abandon. There was a son et lumiere show and the Grimethorpe Colliery brass band played a rousing fanfare whilst the Duke of Edinburgh cut the red ribbon.

Actually, the windows had steamed up and I couldn't see a thing.

Did anybody go? How does it weigh up against The Star, The Woodman, The Prince Albert and The Mill?

Car crash TV

I've not managed to watch the latest series of Big Brother and now certainly don't intend to. However, it's impossible to avoid the BB racism spat.

If there is racist abuse going on in da house (lingo for our new resident - Busta), then I applaud Carphone Warehouse for its' stance on the situation. In fact, I am SO happy with their actions that I'll even post a logo here.

Carphone Warehouse - for all your mobile telephony needs and gadgetry.

The Ship

Thanks to Dimps for reporting back on this evening's council meeting. I'm not at all surprised at the outcome. One lovely listener has sung the praises of Mr Patel and we can't bash him about for opening a pub. His latest proposal has changed considerably from the Busta proposal.

Let's give him a chance, then if he The Ship changes its' identity back towards Busta, let's bash him then - legally, not physically.

Enough already.

This blog isn't exclusively about pubs. There are more important things out there you know. Like the fact that we can actually walk on custard and that Apple Computer produce damn fine stuff. Did I mention the iPhone?

By the by, the recommendations of trades-people via Plumsteadshire does make me realise the limitations of this blog. I'm working on a Plumsteadshire website and among the many ideas I have for it, good trades-people sounds like a good page to include.

Apple phone

Nothing to do with pubs or anything gastro.

The tech. rumour-mill has been running at high speed and this time has got it right. Apple Computer has announced an iPhone. I can't see that it'll do for phones what iPod did for personal stereos. We'll see.
