Have a very happy birthday, Jim! Hopefully whenever I get up to see Eric someday we can say hello to you too :D


Absolutely!

Thanks all for the birthday wishes. :)

Yes, a lovely night, but not sure how life can continue this way. Not wanting to put a damper on things, but apart from us there were but two others in the venue. A third came in and had a pint, but I didn't see him there for long. When the those two left it would have been empty had we not arranged our night. How can such a venue survive to put on ten or twelve kegged craft ales and four real ones every night? Either there's a lot of money around or there's a lot of debt!

Anyway, a great night, glad I was there, what the Hell happened to the seeds I don't know, but I've arrived without any, sorry Craig.

Yes thanks to all, nice to meet old and new again :-) & whilst we didn't get a photo of glasses raised we do have two witnesses that Eric runs for Metros when late!

As to the Seeds I recon the barman must have just picked the bag up thinking it was rubbish, what were they were seeds for?

Glad to hear you had a good night. :)

As it happens, I'm slightly delicate this morning myself.

Felt alright myself probably because I took it easy with those campfire porters, very glad to have made my bus home, less of a run than last time as well. Hope you've had a few cuppas and got yourself sorted out :)

Definitely a good night, apart from waiting about 15 minutes for the cash machine (lots of students drawing out tenners!).
Eric I will have to dig out some more borage seeds for you.

Just found them safe and sound. Had a top pocket I didn't know I had. Thanks.

I think we talked about this the last time we met up but is anyone interested in having the next meet up at the Newcastle Beer festival at the end of April?

Could be on for that but I think there could be a possibility of a Sunderland meet up before then.
