Why do I know that I'll be in a meeting or asleep (or both) when the Cavedoni comes up?

Because it's Corrado's fault?

Rule #1 of the Pub ... It's Always Corrado's Fault. Well, life too.


Your experiment goes wrong .... Corrado's fault.

Your wine is bad .... Corrado's fault.

Apparently not!

If Corrado would come by the Pub more often, you wouldn't have had to ask. Something about young twins keeps him from having the time. But we all know -- It is Corrado's fault.

The ribs kids of course remember this.

Hey, I just noticed Woot finally got rid of the never used Side Deals category. How long has that been gone?

I did not FORGET to. I just simply didn't renew the domain. I think someone else picked it up and stole the name of the blog and I don't care enough to do anything about it, since I haven't put up any posts since June 2010.

You can still get to it via http://apairitif.blogspot.com

I figured you'd given it up, since you've been busy with everything.


Sad I missed a chance to pick up more mini Purple monkeys, but not like I needed them. I think the Hospital is using something to kill cell phone signals. I have good signal strength, but when I go to do something, it dies out.

hmm never thought of that! Ha ha... last night we went out to dinner, I must have had something bad as in spoiled. By the time we got home... lets just say it wasn't pretty. Get one end to stop the other starts. I am thinking it was the food, cause after it left my system, I was fine. No problems today..

Long day, kids are bleeding us dry, needing money for school things......

I hope everyone had a good monday..

(richard's alter wgo here, btw)

Since WWI, licensing laws in Britain meant that you had to close pubs at 11pm. The only way legally to continue drinking there, was to have a private party in the pub afterwards, with no money changing hands. So, the door is locked, and you carry on drinking. nobody can enter after that. There were underhand ways to pay the landlord for his drinks, and sometimes the fuzz would come in and bust illegal lock-ins, if the rules were not adhered to.

Still happen, though less common now licensing laws have been relaxed.
