The question is what's going *in* Mr. Peterson. A beer please, Woody

Not so much a what your drinking tonight as to where. I used to love Cheers wouldn't go out on a Friday night until it was finished. We used to have a local that we all thought was a bit like that but looking back it was just full of student jakies, disillusioned folk in their twenties/thirties and a money grabbing bastard of an owner, still it was home.

Cliff: Well ya see, Norm, it's like this. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

Have a good weekend people.

That's a great quote isn't it. And good old Gedge.

I loved Cheers. I still quote the John Cleese episode 'have her scrubbed and brought to my tent' quite regularly.

I found a box set of season one in a charity shop and I've been watching it this last few weeks. It's wonderful - it's just so nice, even Carla's nice. They all love each other.

Have booked to see John Cleese on his 'Alimony Tour' this summer. Not sure what to expect form his 1 man show?

Davy - The boy Gedge played that live in December which pleased my mate Stiff no end.

Simon - It was my favourite after MASH

Adam - I was thinking about investing in some of the boxsets.

Didn't know he did one man shows. Here's hoping it's better than his AA adverts.
