BL think the problem with the pub is that there's more profit in the food side so that is encroaching on the drinking side.

It's a fine line to tread for new tenants ... :-/

To be honest, when I saw Hosta was up early I'd half hoped that he'd be the first to post so we could crown him with a garland as our May Queen, but he'll have to wait for next year now

we used to sing it in school choir, but I don't remember the double entendres being explained to us

It's a lovely song to sing - there's lots of versions on You Tube
