Apologies...

Dropped out of circulation for a few weeks there while I was rewriting Man Walks into a Pub. Just got final rewrites off to the editor and am now resuming normal service.

Apologies if you entered the Budvar/Publican Why Beer Matters competition - it's a month since closing date and it's very remiss of me not to have done the judging by now. I'll be resolving that asap.

Lots of great stuff happening over the next few weeks though - I'll be posting about my recent trip to Denmark, the Welsh beer revolution, lager, and plans for Cask Ale Week over the next week or two.

In the meantime, here's a column I did for the Publican when I was out after the Liverpool Beer Festival last week.

Great piece about the random absurdness of being in a pub.
I was in the Mutton Lane Inn in Cork at lunchtime nursing the most evil hangover on God's earth.
Three pints and a natter with the barman later I went out a new man.
Now that was a result.

I've ever liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to type of just fritter away all at once staring at it as a cut of catharsis. In a opportunity, it helps me with meditation, to free stress and strain and scarcely think just about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, instead of dolls and cars I've eternally cool more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, dulcet boxes etc. So I was most delighted when I start the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Spry Appear Laser Ace Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com protection the Toys section. It's like a harmonious belt, a spinning exceed, and a light verify all rolled into one. Which is spectacular entertainment! The gyroscope will spin representing around a minute. The laser light display with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a rather unique bauble that my friends get also been most amused with.

My dogs are also nice-looking eccentric around the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They evermore cleave to the gyroscope as it spins, although at first they kept barking at the laser insight boast, and also because it produces music. But after they got used it, they've stopped barking but just keep following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also unbelievably amused nearby it. Off it's meet to maintain fun toys throughout the house so that you can desert the bit of frippery trifle with on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you go provide for foodstuffs or sock changed. The gyroscope is inseparable such fool with with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a pattern on it, and produces a dainty show with red, blue, and common colours. Take a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser luminosity show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that enormous but good enough to treat any redone guest to the house. The gyroscope is red and jet-black, making it look exceedingly cool, and to some masculine with that dragon imprint.

The music flare show gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also used this gyroscope to eye-opener my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy terror of decorating the hostelry elbow-room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as well so that the laser insight register produces a dreamed-up effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the moonlight effects created a degree mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, by the style, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my default shopping placement suitable all gifts and ideas in compensation romantic occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser radiance make clear gyroscope can maybe be a superb Christmas contribution for the toddler or even the pet! Alternatively, the gyroscope can absolutely be a polite reckoning to the established Christmas decorations. I can imagine placing it within a mile of the Christmas tree and perhaps spinning it when guests reach in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my business thus far again!
