    Thats just more of a reason then for the White Horse to be the next meet.

    It's something to talk about and a challenge!

    I jokingly suggested The Roscoe Head as we could not help but fall over one another. The Swan in Fleet Street used to be small, I've not been there for years.

    A RED carpet, the National Anthem and The Queen all made for a real sense of occasion as Woolton Cinema reopened its doors to the public last night. more

    To be honest, I didn't know he was going to be there.
    I was taking snaps of the audience, and decided to take one from the front of the auditorium, and when I checked the result, there was Mike McGear, and I thought: "Oh dear, he thinks I've sought him out and taken a picture of him!"
    When I was talking to somebody later I was told that Mike is now known as Mike McCartney.

    I'll put together a set of the reopening of the Woolton and put them on my flickr page in the next couple of days.

    I went to Sainsbury's tonight earlier and the Famous Elephant Is reopened as Casa Del Cocodrilo.

    The heads still not on and some dodgey gold coloured Lion Masks are on the side of the building Instead.

    Fact has mentioned the name of the other 2 names they have given to the pubs too.

    One Is Elephant In Latin but Is nothing to do with the Famous Elephant.

    Casa Del Cocodrilo Is In English, Marries Of The Crocodile.

    Yet It's an Elephant Themed building.

    http://icliverpool.icnetwork.co.uk/l...name_page.html

    Why didn't Fargo Bar and Grill get called Marries Of The Crocodile.

    I should become Tony Montana from Scarface and become a crimelord and run them out of Woolton.

    Us English prefer our pubs called something like the old boot.

    It's casa everything in South Liverpool at the moment - talking about flogging a theme to death. We need more North African restaurants.

    But not any called

    I went to Childwall, then back to Wavertree, then Woolton yesterday.

    I got a Day rider bus ticket for all that.

    Most of Childwall had too many shadows on their buildings so I tried Wavertree and Woolton as well.

    It was black paint over all the buildings in Childwall - I arranged it so you couldn't take pictures

    Nah It was shadow.

    Your painting of buildings would of broke the Wavertree/Childwall peace Treaty and you would of been Imprisoned on site for going against a fellow Waverwall.

    The Treaty says the Villages are one as brothers so It's Waverwall as well.

    That was the second attempt I took a pic of that Lodge.

    The first time there was some fine arse woman taking a pic of the Lodge too with her compact Digi camera too.

    Default Mason St Woolton

    This old street does not seem to be under threat of a compulsory purchase and demolition order. m I wonder why? After all it's only probably a 100 years older than the "Welsh" streets of Toxteth and no doubt the Mason St houses have no cavity wall insulation etc. Every reason then to keep them then.
