Van the Man? Ooh no, can't stand him! He does do good hats though.
I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.

Berlin is defintely a Reason to Be Cheerful. One of my favourite cities, along with Istanbul and Rome and Kochi.

Hats are also a Reason to be Cheerful; I have a fedora, 2 panamas, a stetson, 3 baseballs, 3 beanies, a London porkpie, and my current favourite, a newsboy - all but the panamas are black. I am rarely without a hat, and want to find a good quality 40s pork pie, as modelled by Walt in Breaking Bad, and indeed by a bloke who looked just like him that I met at a party at the weekend...

No - he is very old fashioned. I am in Bridport about twice a month though - I know he does full refunds if necessary if bought for another person. If you are interested and can't find one online elsewhere let me know if you want me to take a photo of some of his pork pies when I am down there . He really dies have an extraordinary range - people come down from London for his titfers.

Yep, I've found a few sources online, thanks anyway. But I'm going to wait a bit before I buy one; I want to enjoy the newsboy cap for a good while longer!

That's this one by the way:-

Great to see local businesses (Bridal and Joanna's) advertising jobs on VN in this current climate. Heartening :)

Reasons to be Cheerful:- Joanna's! We were there on Tuesday, and it was ALL the lovely. Great soundtrack too, and good to see the place busy.
