Paul Clarke's - I live and work in Seabrook near Folkestone, Kent. married to Clare and father to Harry and Tommy, I am a software engineer, and I do mostly javascript, Node, 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 blog, so if you search here for pubs or other places it will only return harry pubbing / places I was at or will go to. Fingers crossed it will return those anyway...If you want a more broader search Please try harry on Folkestone Gerald, where I have national and even international venues...

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