UK pub numbers rise for the first time in a decade

The number of UK pubs and bars increased for the first time in a decade during 2019, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

The total number rose by 315, or 0.8%, last year to 39,130, driven by food sales.

The ONS said that the first increase seen since the financial crisis also saw a boost for smaller pubs.

The British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) said it "cautiously welcomed" the news.

According to ONS data, the number of smaller venues with fewer than 10 employees increased by 85 in 2019.

That follows on from more than 15 years of closures.

So last night's dream was that I was visiting AC and he had all the electrical devices in his abode connected to a large block of something that had screw posts holding the wires. I noticed some of them weren't fastened well and I tried to fix it. I shorted some of the connections and disabled AC's NBL generator. Then I woke up. Alive.

Pyrrho, are you sure you were dreaming and not remote viewing?

Damn that was pretty much it except some of the cables were bare wire.

Pretty much identical to my original fag-o-cycle. :)

Nifty bikes for the town and city.

My chain cleaning tool and various noxious chemicals and a new set of brake pads arrives tomorrow.

Then we begin biking again!

Now that the Stopfunian rain has warmed up a bit, Fag-o-cycle No. 5 has been serviced and safely locked away for what passes as the Summer hereabouts.

Fag-o-cycle No. 6 has just had an upgraded front chain set and rear cassette fitted, giving it the effective gearing of a 24 speed bike and the ability to race Porsches and climb near vertical hills. Together with a new, sprung saddle, upgraded handlebar grips, super-bright lights, a rack, new panniers and one of the newfangled link locks, all this has turned a £104 cheapo bike into something rather special. :)

Morning coffee with my avian friends after an all night cycling marathon.

The Atheist is probably going to warn me about bird flu or something...
