    Same here. Flight booked and cheque in the post.
    Hope someone in Stirling knows how to pull a decent pint of stout.

    When things go wrong and will not come right,
    Though you do the best you can,
    When life looks black as the hour of night -
    A pint of plain is your only man.

    When money's tight and hard to get
    And your horse has also ran,
    When all you have is a heap of debt -
    A pint of plain is your only man.

    When health is bad and your heart feels strange,
    And your face is pale and wan,
    When doctors say you need a change,
    A pint of plain is your only man.

    When food is scarce and your larder bare
    And no rashers grease your pan,
    When hunger grows as your meals are rare -
    A pint of plain is your only man.

    In time of trouble and lousey strife,
    You have still got a darlint plan
    You still can turn to a brighter life -
    A pint of plain is your only man.

    Bloke in Annan wasn't it. I remember getting stuck in that town with my mate Pete in the early 1980s hitching home from London.
    We were standing in the cold at about 10.00pm and an old lady invited us into her house and fed us each a plate of field mushrooms to fortify us against the elements.
    So not a word to be said against the residents of Annan.

    I'm late to organise things as usual, but maybe later tonight after sorting the arrangements for the weekend's beekeeping meeting I'll get the checkbook out. It will be great to meet up with some of the forum regulars and irregulars.

    Don't suppose we could persuade Drone Ranger to come along?
