I am still here. Quite an extended absence – the longest, I believe, since the blog’s inception – but I have had neither the time nor the inclination to write anything of late. Put it down to starting a new job. A new job where, unlike the last one, I’m actually expected to work quite hard for my money, usually finishing at around 7pm every day and where I cannot even access Blogger as such sites are restricted by the company’s web filtering software. (This is actually quite a good thing for my job security.)
I don’t know whether to be pleased or perturbed at the fact that, despite having not written a thing for three and a half weeks, I still average more site visitors a day than I did six months ago. Most curious. Not that I think many of them are regular readers, I must add, mostly people looking for something else and finding this place. The most common referring link is still people looking for the lyrics to I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor because of this post. I don’t think they stick around for long. Other frequent links are ‘cripple jokes’, that famous quote by Voltaire, ‘atheism is wrong’, ‘Cyprus Tavern Manchester’, loads of image searches for Agent Smith from The Matrix and, probably my favourite of late: ‘Elite Satan’.
Will try and write some bits of pieces over the long weekend….
Ah the Cyprus Tavern …… before your time ….. dirty knees …. jumpers for goal posts.
Did I not comment about said establishment some time ago. Maybe my comments are the only web memories of the place in existance.
New job, working hard …. big mistake!!!
Yep, it’s your very words on the subject that are bringing them in. There’s obviously a community of people out there wanting to reminisce about the Cyprus Tavern.
There’s even a comment on that post now from the son of the guy who opened the pub in 1967, who himself became bar manager in 1989.
Indeed there is, fascinating. A nice bit of social history has now been documented. Your blog does have a purpose after all
At last I feel fulfilled as a human being.
Oh yes. Very much alive. Should be back in some capacity soon….
