Especially Mapmaker, as he's never been to the Oak and seen their wondrous selection of beer. Everyone else welcome too.

you'll be rosy cheeked after a few pints of Stowford Press, Mapmaker!

...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.

It's nicer over in Chatter. One of the nasty boys on the other side of the msg board told me my willy was floppy and useless through drinking too much cider.

(Memo to self: how did he know??)

Sorry, yes Tuesday. What was I thinking of, not even mentioning the day. By some process of advanced logic much too sophisticated for my little brain, you seemed to have worked that out for yourself.

can i come along (promise to be nice) ?
Thursday 13 May 2004 4.50pm
red bus, you'd be made very welcome, along with ANYONE else who wanted to come.

Yes. Please. The more people we get, the more fun we'll have, and the more cider we'll make.

It's really worth saying that I (who knows ever so little more than nothing about making cider) think that there's two (possibly three) main stages:

1) (if we say there's three parts) Making local contacts, getting all the right skills on board, and finding a good cause to donate a press to

2) pressing day. I'm a bit of a dreamer, but I imagine this as a massive all day party (with a bit of wholesome hard work that hopefully will be so much fun that it won't seem like work)

3) brewing, waiting, drinking

I think (and again, let's stress that I've read about 10 pages of an idiot's guide to cidermaking) that stage (2) will be the biggest and best part, and hopefully will be a lot of fun even if you don't like cider........ rally round, good people of SE1. I'm sure there's fun to be had here, and it's anybody's cider who wants to get involved. (I also imagine that a day pressing apples would be great fun for energetic youngsters. It'd do yours good Sarah, to have a day off from the chimneys and coalmines, wouldn't it? ;0))

Tuesday, 6:30, Royal Oak, Tabrd st. ?? yes??

ok I'll be there from some time after 6:30.

Excellent Jon. I'll be there 6:30 to 7:30 (at which point I'll turn into someone who's a bit tipsy but trying hard to play bridge), but I'm sure Tharg, Ms Jo, and the rest of the scurvy crew will be waving their cutlasses and dancing the hornpipe until a little later than that.

[right pub, by the way. Tabard St]
