  1. It’s a sipper and it goes so well with a Sri Lanka feast
  2. Florida man found grenade while fishing and then took the explosive to Taco Bell
  3. I have to agree. I had a very well paid job, I said had it was in the Licencing trade and I really can’t see it being there once this is over. Our landlords are trying to push through a rent review that would see it double. A little short sighted give retail space will hardly be hard to find. We have very loyal and young customers so could open in a cow shed and still be successful my boss is old and might not want the hassle of starting all over again. That said I’m not sure I’d like to go back and put in the same hours. my wife can’t see herself wanting to squeeze herself on to a busy tram each morning for her daily commute and enjoys being home at a reasonable time to enjoy a good home cooked meal. She’s luck enough that the option to work from home is available one she is more than ready for. could we be looking at real opportunity to change life as we know it? Allowing people to find a better life balance. I think the financial repercussions in the aftermath of this pandemic could force us into a four day week. or I could just be trying to find the silver lining.
  4. Frying pan pizza tonight, a great way to make pizza. Dough has been proving in the fridge for two days. Wouldn’t bother with a pizza stone again. For the curry lovers out there I’d recommend the Spicery’s curry legends books they come with three spice mixes and make everything from traditional takeaway curry’s to the more exotic. Just got their veggie book and the mushroom keema is the best meat free curry I’ve ever had.
  5. I’d like to see all the clapping turn into people voting for better funding. Kind of putting their money where their clap is....then the cynical side of me.... well wetherspoons won’t be closing any pubs down soon
  6. I would risk one of them in here, but I nicked a napkin from the India if your desperate
  7. Hero, throw a few quid jukebox. Pick some good tunes (Which ones?) and the next rounds on me. What you havin?
  8. so we’re heading for immanent lock down here in Manchester. London is likely to happen first but I’ve been told by close friends in the police, banking and military Manchester will follow soon. Only essential service will be open and it’s likely to last till April 16th. Hope your all ok. supermarkets and banks will remain open. Supermarket will be better stocked they are now but will restrict access and implement sickest distancing measures. We’ll all have enough food and loo roll to get though this but will we still have a job?
  9. Oh no some idiot has turned up AT and is demanding to get served. He’s putting a few quid i the jukebox and selecting all Elton John. Time for the regulars to take a sand and help out the landlord.
  10. So since last night we've had to explain to a young group of staff (18-21) that as it stands without any financial help from the government the best option for us is to close the business and make them all unemployed, so when this blows over we have some cash in the bank to get the business restarted. it's a concept a lot of them are struggling to grasp. Only a few of them were willing to work because of the virus, they thought we were taking the ###### when we asked "but there is a pandemic why would you risk our lives etc.." and they all thought we could continue to pay wages indefinitely because the business was successful. Most of our staff are university students that need a second job to make ends meet. i hope today the government offers some financial help, payment breaks etc. and will also be talking to our landlord to see if they can help without it the cash in the bank won't last long.
  11. I run a club, i don't know if we should open or not tomorrow night. We've sold a load of tickets. Online half our customers want us to open the other half think given current advice it would be irresponsible. Our staff are split too (most need the cash) i have other bills to pay. so?
  12. Could it be there is more than one reason and your all right? maybe rl just isn’t that good and it can only thrive in areas where there isn’t much else going on? Or it’s new and has a certain novelty value in other locations.
  13. 49ers really testing the theory that defence wins games
