I had had offers of a black and tan in the USA back in 2010 with no-one noting the cultural insensitivity. But, I do recall when someone offered a round of Irish Car Bombs, that someone noticed that it might be a bit insensitive.

I assured them I took it in the spirit intended.

Whiskey would have been involved then.

Someone else was buying the round. I was not about to stand on principle.

In early 1990#s I was working for an agency, and they sent me to the Royal Victoria in Belfast, on the first Thursday one of the guys took me out for a drink, while we were sitting there, a pot was passed round "For the Boys", my host passed the pot without contributing, and said to me, "Drink up, shut up, we're leaving", what neither of us realised was it was a republican bar, and with my northern English accent, I might be taken for a squaddie, with a very short life expectancy. We left and found a friendlier bar.

They spent thousands doing up the pub last year but left the radiator set below the hand towel dispenser in the gents'. Some iconoclast has only gone and painted it.

It's a brilliant pub.

Bogs with heating? Why? There used to be a pub where I drank in Salford that had no roof on the urinals, the only flush was when it rained. So it was quite clean.

Does that mean it's acceptable to post a picture of Colonel Wilma Deering?

From the Lions website

Paul Mellor, one of the most underated Full backs of the Era

Danny Wilson, mesmoriseding in his side step, and his drop goals to beat Hunslet will always remain in my mind

Gary Ainsworth about to side step the entire PNG National side as he did to most teams

Joe Grima, and Les Holliday, great players

My wife have just been sitting in the garden with a cup of tea. We both had to move because it was too hot in the sun.

I took a rather roundabout route to the Co-op this afternoon, just to soak up some extra sun. It had the added benefit of taking me off the main road, so my self-isolation credentials were also enhanced.
