A foggy and frosty start with Bacon Rolls back in Costa. Ordered another AirTag, collect on Friday. A sessionable start. Boris doesn’t resign. Beryl not for the Premier Inn. Copy ’em faster and supported but UI isn’t as good. 13P much better cameras and battery life. Must return in February. Read The Tippler. Read Tippler.

Frosty Foggy

The Bacon Rolls are back in Costa. Weather cold, frosty and a little foggy. A sessionable start in The Regal. Streaming PMQs. Sessionable start in The Pelican. Collabs to follow. CAMRA members being trained.

No Bacon Rolls in Costa, Manager’s Special in The Regal. In the corner in The Pelican discussing Beer and Beer Festivals. Discussing weather, God and beer festivals. Then Electric Bear arrive. Burke Shelley passes. Pengy.

The best Tweet figures ever and it was not really me. Another 2 years of Better Touch Tool. Coffee and Bacon. Creamflow Complaints. No in Europe? A warming Pallet fire.

Where’s The Nitrogen?

Lots of confused weather and punters at the bar at The Regal wondering why their Creamflow isn’t very creamy. Me, renewing software licenses and taking tech support calls. Also, the UK is in Europe if not in the EU. HMS Belfast and the great people and ales in the Pelican Inn.

Then there was Storm Arwen and Costa was closed to walk ins due to staff shortages. It snowed while I was in the Regal, however the Saturday Wrap was not disrupted. The Pelican had it’s marquee blown away but the Fine Ales were unharmed. Til the next time.

An hour and a half sleep in. I get my last Bean to work. The Constable opens at 09:0. A new festive variant. A Cloudwater 10% to start and rather stormy.

A New Strain For Black Friday

Just in time for Christmas, a new strain of the Rhona. I use the last of my saved Costa Coffee Beans. The Bar in The Lord High Constable now opens at 09:00 instead of 10:00, very positive. Gentle Dogs, lots of people and Pink Floyd on YouTube. A massive Mini Beano.

High Contrast Motorways

When clear skies, high pressure weather and 50 mile an hour speed limits make your outbound Beano journey much easier. An extra five Nectar points at Sainsbury. Why the Costa App needs lots of work. The Gorilla in The Regal in a Santa App. App Store Black Friday deals. The wind is cutting but the Sun is warm. Excellent Ales in The Pelican Inn but the Internet was down for the first two hours. Lovely Pub, lover Pub Fire.

The Art of Timing

The M4 between the second Servern Crossing and the M5 between the M4 and Gloucester are both unlit, so I’m aimed to leave just as it was getting light. It worked out really well, so I parked up, had a Bacon Roll and Coffee in Costa and still arrived at The Regal (Wetherspoons) Gloucester for 08:00. The pub and the bar opening time.

The Regal quickly filled up both with professional drinkers and Rugby fans. Despite the high positive test result numbers it looks like the Rhonda is only having a marginal effect. Oh and The Regal has a King Kong model as well.

Still raining but the Pelican opened at the dot at 12:00. Awesome Pub, Awesome Ales and an Awesome welcome. New WiFi password as well. Rained a lot as well.
