Keith Channing always raises a smile:
Folk think that my uncle’s a loser
He spends so much time in the boozer
He isn’t a dypso
He just loves calypso
Like many a Caribbean cruiser.

Here is an interesting piece on the pub from Anne Copeland:
I have been engaging in a study in Britain of its ruins and its archaeology and history and spirituality of late, and I think it is giving me a feel for the cultural value of a pub, though in reality I have never been in one before.
Pubs seem to be a wonderful place for people of all cultures to gather together in a spirit that transcends people’s culture, their race, their religious and political beliefs, or any other thing that normally provides barriers for people just enjoying each other. We need more of this in our country (and I am in the U.S.) and likely in all countries.
Pubs remind me of another thing that seems to bring people together. I have attended swap meets, farmers’ markets, garage sales, and many similar events, and all of them have the same character – people of all cultures, etc. gathering to sit and eat together in the shade, laughing at each other’s children’s antics, and generally enjoying the sense of camaraderie. It is truly a kind of magic I hope will never leave us. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could find this in any part of the world?
