Very VERY Good News:
During a brief browse I found this glorious piece of news, Edwyn Collins has a new album “Home Again” out on 17th Sept Hurrah! He seems to be getting much better and is even comtemplating playing live double hurrah!

The best Pub Garden in London?
To the Dolphin in Sydenham on Sunday for a Hog Roast .
The food was excellent (good meat and excellent salads with Eton Mess for afters) and the beer (Pride) was also good. The place is kid friendly and if all gastro pubs were likes this they wouldn’t be getting a bad name.
The Dolphin’s main attraction is the best designed, most striking beer garden in London (possible the UK!).
It’s in a “modern tudor” style and once they get some parasols it will be perfect. A really nice mix of modern industrial and formal knot garden that uses the setting well and doesn’t try to hide the local factory setting. A great change from some manky white plastic chairs next to the beer cellar aircon fans, you get in most places.
Ps. Did you go to school that had a pud named after it like David “man of people” Cameron?
