Paul Clarke's - I live and work in Seabrook near Folkestone, Kent. wed to Clare and father to Harry and Tommy, I am a software engineer, and I do mostly js, nodejs, python, ruby, and php. I like pubs, restaurants, home automation and other diy jiggery-pokery, history, genealogy, TV, popbitch, squirrels, pirates ☠, lego, and time travel.

This is my personal , so if you search here for pubbing or other venues it will only return ale pubbing / venues I was at or plan to go to. Fingers crossed it will return those anyway...If you want a more general search Please do try ale on Folkestone Gerald, where I have national and even international venues...
