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

This is my personal blog, so if you search here for pubs or other places you will only find france pubs / venues I have been to or plan to go to. Fingers crossed it will return those anyway...If you are interested in a more broader search Please do try france on Folkestone Gerald, where I have national and international places...

As it turns out there are no pubs / venues regarding france anyway. Enjoy the posts though.Is there something I have missed? Please do let me know!
