Biddenden Cider

if you do get over try the local hooch Kentish Cider from Biddenden, you probably won't remember much of the afternoon

Horsmonden

I know the area reasonably well as i am Sussex born .

A month ago we(English Deadheads) had a party not too far from Horsmonden to celebrate the anniversary of the summer of love, Top of the bill was Barry The Fish Melton. The weather was kind and a good time was had by all.

Horsmonden in the hizzouse...

...er, sorta. It's the place to which we've traced the family's English provenance, and for those who haven't heard of it (or who made the mistake of blinking whilst driving thru), it's about seven miles due east of Tunbridge Wells.

Not a whole bunch to see there or thereabouts I guess, and it's why I was telling SSDD that if my peeps had stuck around, my Football League allegiance likely would've swung toward Brighton & Hove Albion...or maybe Gillingham.

Anyway, I've got aims on getting over there for an up-close inspection one of these days. Should suffice to occupy at least part of an afternoon, at any rate.

Kent

i don't live in Kent but knew Margate well, as my mother was born there and my Grandparents lived there until they died.

There are a few Deadheads in Kent. A month ago we had a party on the Kent Sussex border

If you go here you should be able to contact some

Acoustic in the garden in the afternoon and electric in the evening inside. Sunny day too.

Cheers, Paul

Selhurst Park

I will look at the news in a mo, i live in Spain so i am out of touch with happenings.

The last i heard they were going to have to go through a new public enquiry because gov't jobs changed hands

Selhurst park hasn't been the same since Sainsburys took a chunk

well, Dermot

give my regards to St. Stephen's Green, if I'm remembering its name right, being 30 years removed from my last visit...

Well Bob...

I won't argue the point, but it has to be said that at least Palace may boast that they have the superior ground...but then, not for long--

:D

In truth, it's a good bet that I would've ended up supporting the Albion had my people not jumped the puddle four centuries ago.
