    Blimey! After 14 pints I find that hubby takes a bit of time to locate his pockets, never mind his loose change for his bonus pint of the black stuff.

    At least at 'Spoons you can knock back more or less anything without breaking the bank, even down here in the south where all the softies drink.

    Love,

    Thanks for that info Stephen and Bignasaurus.

    At prices like that, some of us might have to take out a loan just to go to the local tappy for a few armpulls and get hammered.

    I basically quit drinking,period,kaput,finis,end of story. I guess if I had two pints now, I would get a nice quiet buzz.

    This is what I do now for a buzz in my middle 50's>
    Ten times or so and I'm seeing trails.....

    Anyway....would anyone care to discuss the Ogan story on Tabram or anything else in the issue?

    Rather less in Hull, I would imagine.

    Come in Mikie.

    Hi Howard

    That's just the cost in pubs for a proper pulled pint. In the shops you can get all the popular beers and lagers in half litre (ie almost a pint) cans at around a pound a can, so it's not all bad news.

    Dear Stephen:

    Thats close to 5 bucks a pint over here !!! Good night Jesus !

    You can buy 24 pints of Modela Negro for 48 bucks over here and thats just about the best beer in North America & Mexico for my money or taste.

    How do you guys get smashed at those prices !!!!

    Stephen, you mean 33.00 pints, which could look even better.
    Either way, Robert, and that would keep me going for the best part of a WEEK.

    Oh yes: 'WINNING PRIZE - 100.00'.

    You may now pass Go, Robert, and collect your 200.00 from the banker before landing on Whitechapel. It'll make you feel all the richer.

    100 would have avoided the risk of a rather expensive decimal point typo there.

    You are most welcome, Jana.

    I'm sure WS1888 members are eligible - it's only those who serve on the committee who can't enter.

    I have to say, I don't blame anyone for being confused over the rather unclear wording of rule #7. I'd have put it much higher on the list of rules to save the ineligible from wasting time reading any further, and I'd have worded it more simply, thus:

    We regret that no entries can be accepted from published authors on JtR or from serving committee members of the WS1888.

    But then, if they asked me to proofread the regular sections of the mag I'm afraid I'd have my work cut out with the old red pen and they'd get fed up with me very quickly.

    Love,

    Critical Caz

    PS Ooh I've just noticed, we are reassured at the top of the list that 'The rules are simple and straightforward...'!!! They could have fooled me!
