Where have I been?
Here,s What I been doing.
I have been digging a huge pond in my back Garden 5000 liters of water and a meter deep.
with pumps filters and a waterfall.
I filled it with water last Sunday night and come Monday morning the pond was empty?

"There was was still plenty of water "but most of it was in the garden next door?

I have had to take the whole lot to pieces which involved shifting half a ton of Cornish Pebbles
along with trying to preserve very expensive water plants? Thank God I decided to await a month before putting Fish in?
The Fish I already have from the previous pond of which this new pond is a extension have spent the last 5days in a Wheelie bIn?
I have solved the problem by installing a double under liner and now the pond is fine.

What a bloody Palaver.
Anyway back to the folk clubs next week starting on Monday at the Stars.
Thats where I have been
See you soon Mate?
Regards Pierre.

Hey Pierre, think of all the advantages -

You've got longer to look forward to it

I doesn't clash with any events in August or September

There's still lots of time to spread the word and encourage more people to go

There should be plenty of water in the Cray for swimming, ducks etc

You can sing the odd Christmas song without it sounding too ridiculous

There's a nice warm pub beckoning if it gets too cold outside

Word is that the Leopards are hoping for four events a year which taken literally would be October, January, April, July - a fest for all seasons. I shall however be personally advising against anything for January 9th :-(

Acksherly, looking back at my records of climbing trips, in about 8 of the last 10 years the weather between about 25th Sept and 10th Oct has been very good in the southern UK...there's usually been a bit of an "Indian Summer" period of warmish, stable weather. So we may be lucky.

So you see Pete, when we're knocking back the pints it's not that we are alcoholics or anything like that, it's simply that we are doing our best to keep the club going ;-) They do also offer us tea and coffee mid evening if that's more to your taste and it's a bargain at 70p

Can't see you getting dismissed Pete as one of our long standing regulars who helped keep us going through the lean times

As for the bellydancing, that's too expensive for me, you'll have to make do with my Carl Perkins rendition!

it seems i have displayed my ignorance on the alcohol/pub/etc and certainly never intended any offence to anyone.in my defence i did assume that a pint of pure beer would be at least as much as a pint of shandy at £3:20 which is the most i have paid for it,not that i mind as i dont have a great thirst.i cannot disagree with your calculations;nor wish to but i would assume on your conclusions that the foresters ran a heavy loss hosting a much smaller club.i do however concede to your reasoning that IF everyone only spent £2 25 it might not be worth opening up for the musos and audience.see you monday hopefully-unless im dismissed for underspending!BTW raffles i didnt know you could bellydance;that would be entertaining!

I think you are probably being conservative in your estimation

Bear in mind Minimum wage = £5.80 ph and employers have to pay an NI contribution

Barmaid = £20.50


20 x pints cost price mote like £35.00 (including tax & duty)

Electricity and other hidden costs £5

Hi Rob

No, that's not my style either - it was a comment following the post of 29 Jul 10 - 06:45 AM suggesting the landlord should be grateful to us even if we bought just one pint each and my follow-up of 29 Jul 10 - 09:02 AM

BTW I have now rewritten the website and added to it having found out that FrontPage is now obsolete

Form an orderly queue please!

I don't know if this is exactly right but I make this calculation -

say we have a good night with twenty people

Sales
each person buys one pint of Courage best @ £2.25 -       total £45

Costs to the pub
20pts beer plus associated costs of staying open            say £15
the government takes in tax                              approx £15
the barmaid costs £5 ph for 3 hours 8:15 to 11:15               £15

the rest is sheer profit to the landlord !! :-(

Pete, the sad fact is that it is not good enough. Before we went there the pub was closed from 8pm on a Monday so the Landlord had no overheads.

broadstairs-jen used to run the highly successful and crowded sessions at the Wrotham Arms in Broadstairs so she knows about these things - she writes on the Broadstairs thread :-

"a plea to everyone: please remember that a full pub is not necessarily a pub making money and the sessions are notoriously weak on the takings front. please support the sessions by buying your food and drink at the venues."

The licensed trade is in free fall and within 4 miles of the Seven Stars these and more pubs have gone under -

The Birchwood
The Woodman
Deja Vu
The Red Lion
The Crayfish
The Anglesea Arms
The Blue Rose
The Greyhound
The OldStar
The Anchor and Hope
The New Moon

It is not for us to save a pub single handed but a night out for a fiver would still give change from two pints of real ale. The Seven Stars is a commercial business, not a local government facility and I think that I get very good value for my money - 2 1/2 hours of folk music with drinks - for comparison you can get one hour's belly dancing for £8, no drinks

see you Monday I hope

Or a keyboard version of Poohsticks where we throw them in the river on the upstream side of Foots Cray bridge then race back across the road (remembering to look right, left and right again and WALK across the road in case any children are watching), order a pint from Danielle, run out into the garden without spilling any and drink the pint before the keyboards go past.

The person whose keyboard goes past last pays for the pints

watcha reckon?

Hiya Wendy. We have a promise of lavender biscuits this coming Monday, but I don't think that you can log in to Mudcat with those. We were up your way on Thursday for a funeral. I'd have rung you to blag a cup of tea, but didn't have my phone- in fact, it doesn't have your number on it. Didn't have a lot of spare time either, between venues.
Look forward to seeing you soon. X
