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
Shit Someone told me he was in hospital today. Lovely, quiet man. RIP
Glen who drank sometimes in the Albert? I really liked him
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?
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.
Market Row also has an ice-cream shop. The one in the Villaaage is Italian.
What's that plane doing circling Brixton?
Yes, Laboratorio Artigianale del Buon Gelato
Looking for ice cream?
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
What's that Irish joke about tree tree surgeons . . . No, tree surgeons! etc.
PM Brainaddict. He's got the knowledge and equipment.
And it's extremely good - particularly the salted caramel and the pistachio.
cheers - is one of them Tony? (Lee?)
Text from Dulwich Road:

How is a road texting you?
He might be back v soon actually
And why should we help scumbags driving around without insurance?
Just a nod to peeps that might have something on them.
I think my bus is insured.
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.
