Rant ‘n’ Rave Subcategories

I’ve been looking at the hierarchy for categories in this the site for some time and have been less than impressed with what I see.

Stop!

Bye bye Mark and Lard.

Keywords Metadata

It’s taken me a long time to realise, but I finally have. The meta keywords tag in HTML is now very pointless.

The Foresters, Ealing

Posted on 24 March 2004 in Pubs (No comments yet - be the first!)

Every now and then you discover a pub you’ve never been to. And for this one, I’m indebted to Ealing Online whose relentless task of reviewing pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants in Ealing, led me to the Foresters door on Sunday.

The New Inn, Ealing

Posted on 24 March 2004 in Pubs (No comments yet - be the first!)

I’m not going to look back on The New Inn with rose tinted glasses. It wasn’t that great before, and now it’s been done up, it’s still not. It always was a pub that had potential but I doubt the new look will do anything to solve its problems other than burn a hole in someones pocket.

Update into what’s going on in the house buying world.

I Want My Peppercorn

Posted on 17 March 2004 in House (No comments yet - be the first!)

There’s some phrases in the English language that just make you wonder. Today I will be mostly wondering about ‘peppercorn rent’.

Ain’t Never Going to be predictable?

Sometimes I wonder if I’m too predictable.

T.J. Duffy’s, Ealing

Posted on 15 March 2004 in Pubs (5 comments)

An Irish pub with no fake fiddles on the wall, real ale, no shamrocks in sight but with a great atmosphere? That must be T.J. Duffy’s!

Music, sweet music

Ever sat down and listened to a song and it was just so beautiful, so wonderful, so utterly amazing, that it made you want to cry? Just cry. For no apparant reason beyond the fact that it’s just so… so… so utterly fantastic?

To the Graveyard (Shift) Again.

Posted on 10 March 2004 in Radio (No comments yet - be the first!)

Mark Radcliffe is heading back to a familiar sounding timeslot, abliet on a different station. But what will feature in this show that sits in a timeslot often known as ‘The Graveyard Shift’?

New Theme

Being bored is dangerous. It means I tend to mess with things. And lo, there is now a third theme to the site.

Standing on the corner with two dogs

Posted on 7 March 2004 in Entertainment, Life, London (No comments yet - be the first!)

Whilst at Borough Market yesterday, Catherine spotted Sue Perkins - probably best known as one half of comedy double act Mel and Sue, and less well known as host of Radio 4’s The 99p Challenge.

Thou Shalt Not View This Website

More ridiculous conditions websites like to ‘enforce’ agreement to.

House Bungling Halifax

Posted on 2 March 2004 in House (No comments yet - be the first!)

After giving a heart-stopping moment on the phone the other day where they applied the wrong credit score and told us we could only borrow £20,000 less than they originally told us, the Halifax screwed up again.
