The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Manchester - Sinclair's Oyster Bar

Sinclair's Oyster Bar in the heart of the city - a very old building - possibly Tudor.

I remember when they redeveloped this area to create the Arndale Centre many many years ago they actually jacked these buildings up and moved them along the road - this engineering feat was covered extensively by my the local newspaper - the Manchester Evening News.

Far too busy for me and in principle I rarely enter places that have bouncers on the door .

As for the Mitre pub next door - I think I went in there once about forty years ago.

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
