Hi Everyone The sun is out, the sky is blue.   Sadly, there is an unfortunate side-effect to all of this as the streets are thronged with "merry" old souls who constanly tell you they "hate football" and then talk about how much they don't like it... at great length.
Hi Everyone I do hope you're enjoying this somewhat unseasonal weather and not sweltering too much.  Excuse me a moment, I just need a cold shower (again)
Hi Everyone September has been a little quiet so far  (let's be honest, we can't keep up our maximum red-hot pace all the time!) However, this time around we have a packed weekend to tell you about at the Rising Sun!
Hi Everyone Once again, life has managed to get in the way of this little epistle concerning all things Rising Sun related.  Luckily there is a full weekend for I, your humble narrator,  to tell you about! On Friday, we bring you STAND UP CINEMA
Hi Everyone I, your humble narrator, have just about enough time away from my other job as "Swearing Consultant" on the all-new all-singing Songs of Praise to tell you what's happening at the Rising Sun this weekend
