Paul Clarke's - I live and work in Hythe near Folkestone, Kent. wed to Clare and father to Harry and Tommy, I am a web dev, and I do js, Node, php, and ruby. I like Folkestone Gerald, pubbing, restaurants, home automation and other diy jiggery-pokery, history, genealogy, TV, popbitch, squirrels, pirates ☠, and time travel...

This is my personal blog, so if you search here for pubbing or other places it will only return ale pubbing / venues I have been to or plan to go to. It will hopefully return those anyway...If you want a more general search Please try ale on Folkestone Gerald, where I have national and international venues...
