Nah, it wasn't really a pubcrawl. We talked a lot about going to pubs while walking around, but we ended up eating both lunch and dinner in unlicensed restaurants. However, the t-shirt was born during the second round of beers at the one pub we did go to. I should be here in Reading for 2 years, so there'll be other chances to meet. Not in London, necessarily, I've got a nice little car and need some excuses to run it around the countryside --- and taking a car into London strikes me as suicidal folly. <<<<<< Is it worth getting a location (nearest big town/city?) from all of us based in England, so that the next one can be fairly centrally located? ISTR we're fairly well concentrated in the south-east. I think we ought to get another meet going, (with possibly a more concrete agenda this time <G>) Probably after Christmas would be better for everyone? Any other (non-London) sites of general interest to the list that a group of us could descend upon? --- Pb If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of booze. -- (More believable misquote of) Doug Larson ************************************************************* This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
