Of all the animals of prey, man is the only sociable one.
Every one of us preys upon his neighbour, and yet we herd together.

We're not going on a summer holiday...

Thanks to the recession, the Tavern staff are staying put in the UK this Summer. For anyone else in the same situation and longing for Mediterranean sun and to remind myself of what I am missing, here's how the last foreign holiday went...

Well I didn’t get much sleep here last night,
I got the feeling that something ain't right,
I'm so hot I feel I need some more air,
My head aches and I am close to despair;
Bugs to the left of me,
Mosquitoes to the right, here I am,
Stuck in a villa with flu.

Yes I'm stuck in a villa with flu,
And I'm wondering what it is I should do,
I’ve got all the right drugs but who needs
A Lemsip when it's ninety degrees?
Bugs to the left of me,
Mosquitoes to the right, here I am,
Stuck in a villa with flu.

Well you started out with a snuffle,
And the shivers though you’re more burnt than tanned,
And your skin, it’s all a-crawlin’,
And you’ve started to cough and to wheeze….wheeze….

Trying to make some sense of it all,
But I can see that it makes no sense at all,
Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor,
'Cause I don't think that I can take anymore
Bugs to the left of me,
Mosquitoes to the right, here I am,
Stuck in a villa with flu.
