Paul Clarke's blog - I live and work in Seabrook near Folkestone, Kent. wed to Clare and father to two, 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 , so if you search here for pubs or other places it will only return mot pubs / places I have been to or plan to go to. It will hopefully return those anyway...If you want a more general search Please try mot on Folkestone Gerald, where I list national and even international venues...

As it goes there are no pubs / venues concerning mot anyway. Enjoy the blog posts though.Is there something I have missed? Please do let me know!
