I think that you'd be more of an "irregular"!

Now that's what I call a plan!   :DKB  However, I am quite happy in the small town where I currently am.  There are three really good boozers (one is the regional pub of the year, which took the title from my two favourite Lincoln pubs, who "share" it!) and a collection of others that are above average.

It looks like the Kings Arms will be closed over Xmas.  Looking at the webcam....  http://www.farsondigitalwatercams.com/live-webcams/north/Ouse/York/    the River Ouse is still in flood.  The Kings Arms is to the right of the no entry sign.

The River Ouse in York as fell around 4 foot in the last day or two and the pavement outside the Kings Arms was maybe clear of flood waters for a matter of hours. But in the last few hours the River Ouse as risen by around 2 foot meaning that the Kings Arms will be under water again and maybe closed for a few more days yet.

Maybe one of our York members will confirm.

It came up a bit, again, but it's levelling out now. I guess it will be below the window cills?
