Calling Time on Tipping?
So i read this article by someone i'd never heard of, this morning and whilst he says is all for the creeping Amercianism into British culture, he doesn't seem to like Americans and apparently he's a bit of a tight git when it comes to tipping bar staff. Al...

Two Days In, Two Excellent IPA's Later
As I sit here looking at the table cloth of cloud cascading off the mountain overlooking this wonderful city I'm struck by one thing. Panic. Not only have I quit my job and told everyone I'm going to write a book, I have no fucking clue how to accomplish th...
