The enforced absence from GBG pubs* (enforced by the need to give my body a break as much as the closure of pubs themselves) has given me chance to re-read some of my favourite bloggers and bring you a highlights package.
Points deducted for the title “Taking a tinkle at the Thomas Tallis” though.
Here’s Paul’s hand on the roof of St Mary’s in Rye.
In January Paul beat me to the lucrative Piper’s sponsorship I’ve long been angling for.
and predicted the outbreak of virtue signalling to accompany Dry January.
Also in January Paul gave us a considered view on the Asahi takeover of Fullers from his position of working for a Japanese company.
Another interesting perspective from corporate life came in February with Paul taking a lunch hour in the pub. Brilliant stuff. Almost made me restart my career so I could do the same for the first time in 30 years !
With (mainly) work jaunts to Cologne, China and Krakow in 2019 Paul managed more overseas trips than me this year !
I’ll have to get him out to the wilds of Gillingham and Sheerness for some real exotica in 2020. Might even find some fish and chips as good as these Polish ones.
*Don’t worry, it’s only 3 days.
