Ask a Silly Question…

There was an interview tonight on FiveLive with sixty year old, Stuart Ashby. His claim to fame is that he had had a pint of beer in all 700 pubs featured in the Good Pub Guide over the last five years. But even more impressive, since 1984 he has visited some 17,000 hostelries’

Peter Allen: “Wow, 17,000 pubs eh? Why do you do it?”

Stuart Ashby: (slight pause) “Well… I like beer.”

    Stuart Ashtby? What a man! Such drinking prowess and such commitment to the cause! Who wants body builders or lotharios, marines or fire officers give me a guy like Stuart any time!
    And you sir! Back in the blogosphere! I got some flowers for your funeral from the local Texaco station, now I’ll have to get my money back. Also the design of your blog! Wow! It’s like you were in a terrace in Gorton and now you’re living next to nouveau-riche footballers on Alderley Edge!

    Rumours of my demise have been greatly exaggerated and all that, but I appreciate the thought.

    There is quite a gap in my archive. Various things going on in real life, but the bottom line was I lost the will to blog. But having rediscovered it, I decided to have a go at WordPress.

    Although there are plenty of free themes available, I came across Artisteer, a program that helps you build your own without knowing what php and sql stand for. But having paid for it, I was going to get my money’s worth, hence the plethora of themes.

    I’ve enjoyed creating them though because Photoshop I do understand. Well, perhaps a little.
