AGM Nonsense (God must love stupid people; He made so many)

So the AGM of the Kelvin was last night. I wonder sometimes, I really do. First of all we had the proposition to make the stretch at the vet school fly only. This I admit was mostly my idea. That part of the river is pretty much hammered not just by the odd guy but […]

Red Wine & Kelts
