    Any idea if the walled garden in Eccleshall (P. M. Edwards, I think) is open? (turn left when you get to the roundabout, then near the brow of the hill)....

    We went to Pipers today around 1:00pm. Not much of a queue to get in, but it took a bit longer to come out .... and the car park was a bit cramped. Mrs Mikinton said it seemed quite well organised with customers behaving themselves (I'd stayed in the car park and watched the cars on the A5).

    You're goddam right, there is no such thing as too much - too little is the only issue.

    Done - first pint's on me.

    My first thought when they said you could travel somewhere is...would the public toilets be open everywhere.

    Well I'm off work tomorrow and have managed to get a round of golf pencilled in.... Unfortunately as I'm not a member anywhere I'm having to play at Hawkstone park... Mustn't grumble, there's worse places go to !!

    I've played my second 9 today. We've had quite a few new members, it's a great time to play.

    I tried golf once. I can understand why people like it but I absolutely hated it.

    It takes years to master, and you have to practise a lot. A frustrating but rewarding sport.

    I had a friend who played golf. It was the only time he never lied to his wife.
    If he said he was going to have a game, then he did.
    Otherwise, when he said he was going out, he played around.

    No, they've turned thhe inserts upsoide down so the ball only drops in half way down - you can still hole out.

    Oh don't, I was on a call the other day and realised I said something in a Walsall accent.
