Beef Stew (not sure it's English but sounds it)...currently bubbling away in the slow cooker.

Some London Pride or Spitfire, but that involves going to the Rivington (which I won't be doing unfortunately) or Fibbers (which seems wrong).

Definitely a cup of tea with dinner.
Definitely conversation trying to explain who St George is to the Mrs.

You know me Scamp, I'm strictly a Heineken fella, but on this one evening every year I go to the pub and drink something dark. Fortunately they have London Pride on draught at the Byblos Marina :-)

Why not invite a Palestinian round as they also celebrate St George in a few weeks. http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-27048219

I think I'm all out of Palestinians in my contacts book. In fact, I think I do know one and he took me for lunch. Shit, what was his name....

Anyway, yeah the Byblos charges handsomely for those pints of real man though!

Happy St George's day - am currently sporting my cross of St George tie and cuff-links in celebration. May be forced to crack open a bottle of London Pride later as I have some at home, before attempting to teach the first verse of Jerusalem to the kids, who I suspect will be far more interested in Phineas and Ferb on the TV.

Happy hour mate - One of the essential facts for living in Dubai.

Maybe we should start a sticky giving out the best HHs around.

Before you ask, yep a slow day at work today :-)

Awesome. I used to always go with a white shirt / red tie combo but this year I didn't have any back from the dry cleaners (jesus, just listen to me).

We used to sing Jerusalem every Tuesday at school when we had our chapel assembly. If anyone had to look at their hymn book they were severely frowned upon...

Happy hour thread is a great idea.

Also, another meet up is maybe on the cards?

Here's a little topical quiz - How stereotypically English are you?

http://www.buzzfeed.com/robinedds/ho...nglish-are-you

I scored a paltry 21 although I maintain that gravy on chips is a Northern habit not an English one.

You ticked off 55 out of 70 on this bloody lovely list!

The queen is dead, long live YOU. There is no one in England’s green and pleasant land as English as you. You make St. George himself look positively foreign. What’s that? St. George was actually born in Palestine? Don’t be silly. P.S. The queen isn’t really dead.

Bloody brilliant. You’re really ruddy English and don’t you just know it?! Bowl a googly. Neck some Earl Grey. Tut at a foreigner. It’s what Churchill would have wanted!

Its the custom in my (far eastern) company to bring gifts back from holiday. Gave my boss a Churchill crown

Difficult to cut and paste on an ipad after 3 London Prides but 50 out of 70 and you are basically the queen. . A happy St George's day for me

Blimey, that’s disappointing! You’re not very English at all — in fact, you’d probably feel more at home in the Colonies. No scones for you, I’m afraid.

Wow, people still celebrate St.George's day.

Getting pissed up in Spain somewhere and throwing some plastic furniture through a window is in order surely.
