Talking of meat, as a few of you are down the board, Lady Dollers and I went to the Fentiman Arms near Oval for Sunday lunch yesterday.
Beef striploin, lemon and thyme roasted chicken, slow cooked pork lion, a pig in blanket & crackling were the ridiculous varieties of meats on my plate... plus a massive Yorkshire, pots roasted in goose fat, cabbage, celeriac, carrots done in a funny way I cant remember the name of, swede and gravy. All for £20.
Awesome, delicious, could've done with more than one pig in blanket but that's being moon-on-a-stick. I was stuffed. But just had room for a whiskey and treacle tart with clotted cream for dessert.
Nice and cosy pub with a real fire and friendly locals playing board games. A lovely and relaxed way to spend your Sunday afternoon. Highly recommended.

Work wife and I had an Honest Burger for lunch yesterday. I had the eponymous Honest Burger (Beef, red onion relish, smoked bacon, cheddar, lettuce and pickles with rosemary salted chips). It was absolutely delicious, and the chips were a real treat as well.
Work wife had the Fritter 2.0, which I'm sure will annoy some on here (Cauliflower, sweetcorn & chickpea fritter, Cheddar, lime and coriander mayo, hot sauce, red onion and lettuce). Her feedback was, "yeah, it was alright."
Not had an Honest Burger for a long time (several years) and have seen a few on here saying they're overpriced and 'not all that', but I thought it was 'right up there'.

I'm off to the remotest pub on the UK mainland, thanks to your recommendation!
Booked flights to Glasgow, then train to Mallaig, and 4 days in a lovely little guesthouse by a loch. Then either hiking 17 miles to the pub or getting a boat taxi (depending on weather) on the day, for my first beer in a year. Should be fun!

I think a better rendition of "Paul Lambert is a blue" could be;
Paul Lambert is a blue
Is a blue, is a blue
Paul Lambert is a blue
He SUED Norwich.
Especially for Sunday.

Maybe, once Norwich is out of the way, we should play the kids/our own players/players that will be here next season. Get them used to each other and gelling as a team in preparedness for our League 1 campaign. That bit of extra experience and game-time together could be vital, couldn't it?

Very funny guy. Met him in a pub once and a very sweet guy as well. Another victim to cancer and only 57.

They say the universe started with a big bang... but you can't have something just appearing out of nothing. Therefore, the universe can't have a beginning - and yet must do (because it exists). A paradox.
Similarly, if the universe is expanding (like they say it is), what is it expanding into? And whatever that is, what is on the other side of THAT? Therefore, the universe must go on forever... and yet can't do (everything has an end or edge). Another paradox.
Both of these paradoxes suggest the universe shouldn't exist. Its existence doesn't make sense.
Well surely then, the only logical conclusion is that it DOESN'T exist?!
It's either a figment of our imagination... or a purposely created virtual reality?
I appreciate this last bit isn't a new idea (The Matrix) - but how else do you explain the two paradoxes?
I hope someone can answer soon as I'm off to the Royal Observatory at Greenwich to watch a couple of shows about space and I don't want it to be a waste of time!
