Paul Clarke's blog - I live and work in Hythe near Folkestone, Kent. wed to Clare and father to two, I am a code engineer, and I do mostly js, 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 places you will only find lego pubbing / venues I have been to or plan to go to. It will hopefully return those anyway...If you are interested in a more general search Please do try lego on Folkestone Gerald, where I list national and international places...

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