That's the tab settled.

Ales and beers - Certainly looks more than the average rugby club do, so the antipodeans were in good form....
Wines, ports - lots
Shorts of spirits - Looks like John and Chris had a very good time






But, only one bottle of sherry for the ladies?





Uli & M'LadyL, I hope that all the guests were all well behaved.

Many thanks to all who sent to their thoughts and wishes to my family and I at this time. You will be pleased to know that we sent Mum off in a manner to which she would have approved.



I'm glad to hear that it went well Rob, as well as these things can go given the circumstances.

Hey you all need to shake this place up again...Forget giving the Ladies "la de da" Sherry they demand Jack Daniels and Coke! Once they start dancing then several rounds of Tequila will really get em shaking.... Rocky used to have a bottle or two if JD stashed around somewhere....

I had a thought earlier today whilst waiting for a bus.
The notion of being kind to trees to be 'green' has a fundamental flaw. Trees, being photosynthesising organisms, like carbon dioxide. So reducing emissions is not in their favour.
Add to that, trees over the course of their lifetime use more oxygen than they produce, so off setting carbon emissions by planting trees is the wrong way to go about it. Most of the oxygen (over 70%) comes from algae in rivers and seas. Algae, like all plants, need a source of nitrates to grow. The richest source of nitrates humans produce is urea. So if one really wants to offset carbon emissions, the best way is by peeing into the nearest stream.
But you won't see any greenpeace posters advocating that!

It's like rain on your wedding day.
Only if your fiancรฉe works for the met office and they chose the date!

Sorry about this, they played Alanis Morisette's aural torture Ironic on the radio earlier and it's been bugging me!

I've always found National Express by the Divine Comedy to be the best cure, as it displaces any other song.

Mighty quiet in here.
Know it isn't the same with Sir John in hospital, but c'mon, guys and gals.
Got to make sure the place is still here and fit for his return.

Long as I'm here, I think I'll have a pint of red ale, please, innkeeper.
Thanks much.

Somewhere or other there is a rule that states if, in the absence (enforced or otherwise) of the duty holder (in this case Sir John) an emergency resolution can be passed provided it is approved by the majority of the other duty holders, plus the non-duty holder members of the committee.

Uli, May we assume that we may take your comment as a request for such a motion to be put to the committee so we don't have an embarrassing situation arise as a result of the impending refurbishment?

As an ordinary member plus a member of the garden weeding party I vote in favour
of this resolution to put this motion to the committee.
