Back in the saddle!

Sorry about the lack of an update for the last couple of days, it has been all hands to the pumps to get the colour section of the next print edition of Suited and Booted together.

New Licensing Act starts at midnight
The much talked about new licensing act comes into force at midnight tonight. In theory at least, this means it is now possible to purchase alcohol right around the clock. In practice only about 360 outlets have asked for a 24hour licence period and many of these are convenience stores.

In practice most pubs and clubs will stay open a little longer at the weekends. It will be interesting to see how things work out!

Non-Politically Correct Joke
This joke came in from John Richards of Watchet
Two blonde girls were working for the city public works department.
One would dig a hole and the other would follow behind her and fill the
hole in.

They worked up one side of the street, then down the other, then moved
on to the next street, working furiously all day without rest: one girl
digging a hole, the other girl filling it in again.

An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn't understand
what they were doing.

So, he asked the hole digger, "I'm impressed by the effort you two are
putting into your work, but I don't get it -- why do you dig a hole, only to
have your partner follow behind and fill it up again?"
The hole digger wiped her brow and sighed, "Well, I suppose it probably
looks odd because we're normally a three-person team.
But today the girl who plants the trees called in sick."

Have a fun day!
