It's about the same price for Peroni at the Jack Rabbit, and that's just surburban Plymouth. Robbing fckers.

Two friends have just come back from Stockholm. They were outraged to be charged about £30 for a couple of glasses of wine & some other ordinary drink.

Me to brother in law "do you like a pasty?" Him "depends what's in it". Thank God he's not blood related.

I used to work just north of Stockholm, a place called Enköping. When I first arrived in Sweden I initially paid around £7 for a decent pint. I later realised why home-brew is so popular over there.

Henning Wehn told a long story about having had a hernia which caused bladder problems and having to get off a late-night bus in London to have a pee in the bushes after an evening drinking. Then, with his trousers stained from wetting himself, he decided to walk home. On the way he passed a kebab shop & decided to have a kebab. Unfortunately he tripped on the step into the shop, went flying and landed on his hands & knees.

He thought, at last I've arrived! Smelling of booze with piss-stained trousers, going for a kebab, falling over onto his hands & knees. After years of living here, I'm finally British!

(you had to be there.....)
lol! Now that's funny.

One time when I was in Denmark, I went to Helsingor (as in Elsinor - I went to see the castle, which was where Hamlet lived; not knowing anything about Shakespeare, that was news to me - I just thought it would be nice to go to a castle.) From Helsingor you can get a ferry to Helsingborg in Sweden (see what they did there?). It doesn't take long - it's so narrow there you can see the Swedish coastline clearly. (And no, I didn't go on it as I didn't have my passport on me and didn't want to take the risk - they're quite fussy about things like that.)

A n y w a y. It was a public holiday in Denmark, so most places were closed. Except about half the shops in Helsingor are off licences which sell everything (including spirits) by the crate and which take both Danish and Swedish money. They were all open - and doing magnificent trade, judging by the overloaded foot passengers heading back to the ferry.

The castle was also open.

If I remember properly (late at night after a few sherbets) I think my friends said that they weren't allowed to take alcohol OUT of the country.

Had an excellent Tribute and an excellent warm beef baguette with pepper sauce in The Rising Sun in Gunnislake. An excellent bit of autumn sun. Time for a rest.

Sun? Peeing it down in the Smoke. Tribute, now that sounds like a plan.

This week I have mostly been reading a lot of stuff about Cromwell's army in Ireland, and particularly the bit where Irish people had to 'forfeit' their land so he could pay his soldiers off with it.

This was achieved by ... I kid you not ... wait for it ... The Act of Satisfaction.

1653.

Irish history makes for very sad reading, Cromwell was a blot on the history of England.

To make my day I was mistaken by three male for being a PASOTI poster, You resemble the person we were to meet here they said. They must be looking for their free tickets.

Hence the song made popular by the Rolling Stones which was originally sung by those soldiers who had been paid in cash.

You'd better get onto Wikipedia, Moisty - they seem to think that song's about 'sexual frustration and commercialism' Cool

The Stones are big on history, after all they've been around for most of it.
