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 js, nodejs, 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 , so if you search here for pubs or other venues you will only find pubs pubs / venues I was at or plan to go to. It will hopefully return those anyway...If you want a more broader search Please try pubbing on Folkestone Gerald, where I have national and international places...

As it turns out there are no pubbing / venues concerning pubbing anyway. Enjoy the blog posts though.Is there something I have missed? Please let me know!
