Roger’s Profanisaurus – twat hour

New Arrivals

The Corner at 79 has had a new pool table installed and yesterday we heard the dart board is going in today/tomorrow.  Guess I'll be dusting down my own set of arrows to give them a try out.  I used to be OK but haven't thrown in decades, so I'll need plenty of practise.  Looking forward to it.

Well Said

I know of only one bird - the parrot - that talks; and it can't fly very high.

Can Only Get Better?

Spurs, who have already thankfully qualified for the knock stages of the Champion's League take on Borussia Dortmund in Germany tonight.  It can't be any worse than our weekend nightmare against The Arse, can it?

I'll find out in the morning.

Good to See Bangers in the Mix

InterNations recently released its 2017 list of the best cities for living and working abroad although I have no idea why they use New York as the comparison.  American company?  To compile the data, they surveyed 7 985 expats living in 40 countries.

A city had to be mentioned at least 45 times to be included and city rankings were determined based on the quality and cost of urban living, quality of work life and finances, ease of settling into the city and the cost of beer.  We approve as we do of entry #8.
