Sorry about lack of activity

David Davis

Fact is, we are all rather tied up at present. I am trying to tidy my library: Fred Bloggs is revising for exams: Peter Davis is playing cello in Dublin. Steven Northwood is probably in the pub, which is sound, and can’t access us on his sub-etheric-communicator. I’m not entirely sure what Sean Gabb is up to as we speak, but it probably is constructive as usual. Michael is punching pigs in his pasture-lands. (One followed him unexpectedly into a ditch, in a vertical sense, the other week. The pig lived: no free-range pigs were harmed in his unplanned fall.)

We do have several other bloggers on the establishment, but they “pretend to not know us”: before the cock crows twice, they will have denied us went something like that, didn’t it, on that fateful Friday Morning. But we do love them really. They know who they are.

Normal blogging will be resumed asap. Perhaps even as soon as tomorrow.

  1. don’t you ever worry me like that again young man!

    I was starting to think you were all on the Red List or something… ;-)

  2. Don’t worry, old wH00ps! We are still here. I was going to do something thoughtful today but I ran out of time. Maybe later, before bed….

    I wish I was in the pub David! I’ve got an assignment to complete by Friday and it’s one of those awkward ones. Mind you, aren’t they all? Still, a case of cool beer awaits on Friday evening. ;-)

  4. Steven:

    Which beer is that?


  5. Steven Northwood

    You mean which beer was that Tony? Usually Beck’s or Peroni, or any other pale lager that’s clean and crisp. Pure pleasure… :-P

  6. Sean is finishing another long, long novel – all about Greek Fire and how the Byzantine Empire turned back the Islamic flood.

    Sean, apart from your works of fiction being very entertaining and thought provoking, they will probably cause me to divert yet more attention from my all-important studies with the Open University a.k.a Oxbridge for chavs! Your novels are always good as well but I can always make time for them! ;-)

  8. What do you think of Coors or Stella Artois?

    (I’m not a drinker)


  9. Thanks. However, you surely mean the novels of Mr Blake. We are often confused.

    Hi Tony,

    I don’t drink any of that stuff, in particular the stuff brewed in the UK. They seem to use some kind of chemical to brew it, which they leave in, and it not only gives the beer a sicky yellow colour and synthetic taste, but it causes one hell of a hangover when compared to the clearer pale lagers such as Beck’s and Peroni. And I don’t drink anything other than lager, no spirits or fruit-based drinks (I have a particular aversion to cider) so I’ve developed a particular taste. I won’t be grandiose enough to suggest that I’m a connoisseur as I’m generally just like a good kick-back and relax!

    Hi Sean,

    Yep, a common mistake! I’ll look forward to that one anyway.

  11. Steven, have you tried any of the polish lagers that seem to be multiplying in offies across the land?

  12. Steven Northwood

    I haven’t, but I’ve heard they’re quite good and I’m tempted to try the Lech brand. Come to think of it, I think I will next time.

  13. I’ve not tried Lech, Zbegnow (it’s not called that but it starts with a ‘z’) isn’t too bad. I found Tyskie to strangely be akin to Super Tennents despite being the same strength as the others… odd and I wasn’t too keen.

  14. Steven:

    Thanks for that. My drinking is limited to occasional glasses of Bailey’s on ice, or a half of cider on sunny days. I used to drink Cinzano Bianco. A glass of Lambrusco is nice with meals. Very conventional….
