Paul Clarke's blog - I live and work in Seabrook near Folkestone, Kent. wed to Clare and father to Harry and Tommy, I am a web dev, 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 pubbing or other venues it will only return ground pubs / places I have been to or plan to go to. It will hopefully return those anyway...If you are interested in a more broader search Please try ground on Folkestone Gerald, where I list national and even international venues...
