    Predictably, the shouty volume levels outside are on full, and there's been load more cop cars speeding past, noisily doo-daahing their way down Coldharbour Lane.

    really sad news for regulars of the Hootananny/Hobgoblin - death of 67 year old West Indian Glen on Sunday morning. I think it was some sort of long-standing chest infection, but I'm not sure. No news of a funeral yet. Rest in peace Glen, a quiet and friendly local for many years :(

    Never saw him drink anything except Cranberry Juice. By rights he should have had the health and vitality of Carol Vorderman, or Brucie even. 67 is not old.

    He was a lovely man. Like a little peaceful buddha sitting in the corner just taking everything in.

    Does Brickers Village have an artisan ice cream parlour?

    el-ahrairah forward communism, forward gerbils!

    It has an ice-cream shop. I think we can assume that it's artisan, given the location and clientele, but I'm happy to stand corrected.

    Anyone used a local tree surgeon recently and got any recommendations please? Know how much they cost? Tree in my back garden just needs a little trim but the branches are way out of my reach. Mrs Hatter not too happy with me getting up a long ladder (which I dont have anyway) given my gung-ho attitude when I have a saw in my hand. Ta :)

    There's a couple of tree surgeons who drink in The Albert. Will have a word if I see them in the next few days :)

    Where shall I take my pescatarian friend for dinner tomorrow? Courtesan? Khamsa? The new paella place in market row? Somewhere else?

    I had to look up what the hell a pescatarian was :(. I don't know if it helps but I like Yum-D and their soups. They're really filling and not expensive. Pretty sure there's lots of veggie stuff on the menu.
