    It mostly seemed to be that London Pride, , when I worked there in the early/mid 90’s but you’re probably right.
    Otherwise living in London was a great experience.

    I walked past a pub in/near Covent Garden with loads of flowers outside, hanging baskets and the like. It looked familiar - maybe from a CAMRA review? - but I can't remember the name. Anyone have a clue what it's called?

    I think it was green. HTH.

    Its great here. We have things like electricity and street lamps, and when you have a pooh instead of having to go out into a field in all weather conditions and poke it into the mud with a stick and pour Dettol on it, you just pull a lever and it suddenly becomes someone else's problem.

    Moved here for a gig in 1989.

    Still here.

    Still moaning.

    Contracting in London is excellent - it's where most of the roles are (esp. the higher paid ones.)

    Housing (both purchase & rental) is very expensive.

    Commuting is a nightmare, they tell me. I don't know, as I use a motorbike.

    Not the Harp by any chance? ( NF's favourite pub).

    Never had a problem with working in London and found quite a few pubs with good beer.
