    Welcome to the new premises. You lot get through these far too quickly, you're costing the management a fortune!

    Anyways, we've included a dungeon this time around, in case Richie's twin comes to visit again, but we're a pub, not an inn, so there are currently no rooms upstairs :p

    Have fun!

    The name has been chosen in honour of Michael Sheard, to remember one of the most fan friendly convention stars on the circuit. May be rest in peace.

    1st post is mine


    EDIT 1: That means I get the comfy chair in the corner with the nice foot stool by the log fire. :) toasty!



    Now someone employ a barkeep and send them over with my bottle of Oban and a steak dinner. I heard we're serving food in this one? Richtea's cousins the chef in the dungeon I believe.


    EDIT 2: Can we please find a name for the pud quickly this time.


    EDIT 3: I'm leaving the spelling error above as it amuses me.

    Just spotted that and edited whilst you posted.

    I've not corrected though for the reason mentioned in the edit.

    I am however trying to get fit at the moment (Diet(ish), rowing machine atc...) as I want to get out and hit some trails on the Mountain bike next year (£800 bike in shed fot 2 years gathering dust due to lack of fitness [face_frustrated] )

    So guess what is on my mind a little at the moment.

    Good luck mate, I have just cleaned out my garage to gain access to my treadmill that is sitting in there.
    Also I need to get a bike soon so I can ride to and from work.
    This will be beneficial in two ways.
    It will help me lose weight and will save me petrol money (as I drive to work at the moment)!

    I need to get my hefty yet surprisingly not fat (aside from beer belly) frame from 18st down to 16 before I can officially ride my bike offroad without damaging it through my weight.

    My suspension forks have far too much sag in them to allow me to safely North Shore and due to my weight there isn't much flex in the frame which means that XC could put too much strain on the frame and damage it if I hit anything rough at speed :(

    I really need to get down to 15 or less to do what I used to so I've gone all overly sensible with my eating :(

    I'll hopefully have lost 2 stone by April if I get intensive enough on myself so I'll be set with fitness and appropriate weight for the start of the MB season.

    It will also mean I'll get my cow like calves and buns of steel back which will please my missus no end :D

    Just eat sensibly and you'll be fine

    I manage to eat healthy and unhealthy foods in pretty equal amounts and it doesn't affect my weight
    But I do think I should weigh more then I do, I often worry I am unhealthily thin. But I shouldn't let it get to me, thats how anorexia starts.

    Unfortunately though not everyone is as lucky as you Richie.
    I struggle to NOT gain weight even when I eat sensible and excercise.
    My brother eats like a horse and never excercises and yet he looks like a skeleton.

    It isn't as straight cut as ...
    Some of use have to work harder at it.

    The simple rule for losing weight it....


    Consume less calories than you use...


    Simple really.


    I clearly haven't been following this rule and I only started gaining weight when I was about Richtea's age give or take a little.

    Well, after receiving 3 PM?s from 3 different people I have chosen the new pub barperson. I hope you accept this great honor and do as good a job as me. (I know that?s asking a lot :p)

    The three PM?s I have received were:


    Well, after careful consideration I am pleased to announce.

    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a60/JonJediLFC/barwomen.jpg]

    I think you can all agree that her speech was the best and had the most effort put into it! So well done Suzy! =D= I can finally get out my pipe and slippers and retire spending all day in a rocking chair! :D Wooooooo!!!!

    And well done to Rob and Jenny. I?m sorry I couldn?t give the job to all of you. :( But you get a free drink on the house. I really didn?t want to choose one of you. Sorry. :(

    So again, well done Suzy! I think this makes you the first ever barwomen! Unless I am wrong. Actually, does anyone know? :confused:

    Do we have to have another pub? it seems like only yesterday the new one was opened.

    Plus I'd only just finished my elaborate drunk trap and didn't get a chance to test it out.


    Ah well, CONGRATS SUZY!!!!! And a round on me lads.

    [face_dancing] Yey Thanks Jon [:D]

    You should have seen me panic when I thought I hadn't sent it and lost it.



    Drink on the house for the opening of the pub, and Sid of course you can have a cherryade; based on its popularity there's practically a whole swimming pool of it stored around her.


    Oh and a special drink for my contenders Rob and Jenny :D



    Ooo I'm so excited [face_dancing]
