    This conversation was over British craft beers. She liked the ones which were 7-9%, no surprise there.

    Kate Tempest- this girl is seriously good. I heard her twice on R4 (UK NPR) and was hooked. She is beyond poetry or rap...just stunning.

    You've heard the name, now. So take her words to heart

    I've seen her before somewhere, she's good isn't she .. I know it's wrong to pigeon hole but if I had to, I'd describe her as a contemporary beat poet, her style reminds me of the 60's scene .. and that early 80's punk poet John Cooper Clarke ..

    Oh yes, exactly so. But with a certain sharper edgier feel. She's a keeper, for sure....

    The folks in Uranus Missouri seem to have a sense of humour - they're launching a newspaper - The Uranus Examiner.

    The Mayor doesn't like it though.

    “No. I’m sorry. But the innuendo of that title puts my city up for public ridicule, and I will not be a part of it,” Hardman was quoted as saying.

    Located about five miles from the city of Waynesville – which has a website containing warnings about the release of natural gas – Uranus has become known less as a town than a series of extended puns.Its tourism website states that “there’s a lot to do in and around Uranus”, and local sites include a fudge factory and a competitive axe-throwing facility called the Axehole.

    In 2017 the St Louis Post-Dispatch described Uranus as “a strip mall gone delightfully, disgustingly wrong – or right”.

    Near Waynesville are 2 places next to each other - called 'Trust' and 'Luck'.

    Ha! I never noticed that. On looking it up in Wiki, It's actually Louie Keen, who reportedly owns all the businesses in Uranus, the land it's built on, & has proclaimed himself mayor. The 'town' consists of 25 people according to wiki.

    It holds the Guinness world record for largest belt buckle

    Belgium is a remarkably schizophrenic country, being split around 55% Dutch speaking and 45% French speaking.
    In the mainly Dutch speaking areas (e.g. Brugge) the preference is very much for beer.

    This was new to me and I couldn't find a subject thread where this would have fitted in, so I'll share it here... The Telegraph Pole Appreciation Society! :D
