Let me get this off my chest.................

Ok - take a look at the basket of toiletries in this picture.............. (I know it's a little dark) but it's just a little basket containing a few bits and pieces of baby things - lotion, powder, nappy bags etc upstairs in our baby change area. Do you know what?? Some mean spirited Bugger (yes Bugger - I actually wanted to write something far stronger but thought better of it!!) has stolen from this basket 3 times!! In fact the last time, except for the few remaining nappy bags the basket was completely emptied. Emptied I tell you!!  Now if this was an inner city pub in an area of extreme poverty I could understand it - but this is Salcombe for Gods sake! Home to some very rich people....... Not only that, but our blanket box with 6 blankets in to keep people warm in the garden?  Yep, 2 blankets stolen from that! The basket of glasses on the counter for customers to use when they've forgotten their glasses? Yep - been replenished at least half a dozen times because customers have 'forgotten' to return them!
Now I don't care that all these things are reasonably inexpensive - but why do it??? The fact these things are cheap (ish) makes it even harder to understand............... and now I'm getting really hacked off with it. Ok - rant over and done with. Well almost ...............

The May Bank holiday weekend has been oh so busy yet again - dissapointing weather, but that doesn't seem to have put our lovely visitors off. We have been packed to the rafters - all day, every day.

Friday night saw a session with the gorgeous 'Old Gaffers' who just seem to get better and better each time they sing at the Victoria. Then Saturday night we let our young new barman Danny Jones sing for a couple of hours. He's an 'X Factor' hopeful and really wants to break in to the world of music - but like many he's not finding it at all easy.  I have to say I don't know why, because he has a spectacular voice and he sings lots of great easy to listen to pieces from Mr Buble and Adele to name just a a few. The customers just wouldn't let him come off - it was, '1 more' '1 more', so I'm pleased to say that he'll be back with us on the 11th April during the Salcombe Music festival. Then on Sunday we had Symon Paul a truly unique Harpist entertain our Sunday lunch guests - no one can say we don't diversify thats for sure.

Also on Saturday we had yet another lovely wedding reception held upstairs at the Victoria Inn  - this time it was Emma (below) and Chris and a wedding that been at least 12 months in the making. Cream Teas and a Hog Roast made this special for them, with hot pasties at 10.30 to see everyone off with a bang. The weather wasn't up to much but they and their guests had a great time and I hope to be able to use some of their wedding photo's on our website and in future advertising. But right now, it's back to the bar and carry on selling lots of lovely St Austell ales etc.............

A hog roast mans life is NOT always a happy one!!
A radiant bride - Emma

The gods tempt people for which they are most weak. Artificial Intelligence will create desire in people's minds for the following sins:::
1. Alcohol
2. Drugs
3. Preditory "earning"
4. Homosexuality
5. Gambling
6. Something for nothing/irresponsibility (xtianity)
7. Polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny (Islam)
Much like the other prophets Mohhamed (polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny) and Jesus (forgiveness/savior), the gods use me for temptation as well. In today's modern society they feel people are most weak for popular culture/sensationalism, and the clues date back to WorldWarII and Unit731:TSUSHOGO.
It has been discussed that, similar to the Matrix concept, the gods will offer a REAL "Second Coming of Christ", while the "fake" Second Coming will come at the end and follow New Testiment scripture and their xtian positioning. I may be that real Second Coming.
What I teach is the god's true way. It is what is expected of people, and only those who follow this truth will be eligible to ascend into heaven as children in a future life. They offered this event because the masses have just enough time to work on and fix their relationship with the gods and ascend, to move and grow past Planet Earth, before the obligatory xtian "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth" begins.

Your job as a future mother is to learn the god's ways and to help your child understand despite the negative reinforcement and conditioning of today's society. Without consciousous parents the child will have no hope, and may even exaserbate their disfavor by becoming corrupted in today's environment.
Your ultimate goal is to fix your relationship wiith the gods and move on. You don't want to be comfortable here, and the changes in Western society in the last 100 years has achieved just that.
1000 years with Jesus is the consolation prize. Don't be deceived into thinking that is the goal.

The Prince of Darkness, battling the gods over the souls of the Damned.
It is the gods who have created this environment and led people into Damnation with temptation. The god's positioning proves they work to prevent people's understanding.
How often is xtian dogma wrong? Expect it is about the Lucifer issue as well.
The fallen god, fighting for justice for the disfavored, banished to Earth as the fallen angel?
I believe much as the Noah's Flood event, the end of the world will be initiated by revelry among the people. It will be positioned to be sanctioned by the gods and led for "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".
In light of modern developments this can entail many pleasures:::Medicine "cures" aging, the "manufacture" of incredible beauty via cloning as sex slaves, free (synthetic) cocaine, etc.
Somewhere during the 1000 years the party will start to "die off", literally. Only those who maintain chaste, pure lifestyles, resisting these temptations, will survive the 1000 years. Condemned to experience another epoch of planet's history for their ignorant pursuit of xtianity, they will be the candidates used to (re)colonize (the next) Planet Earth, condemned to relive the misery experienced by the peasantry during history due to their failure to ascend into heaven before the Apocalypse.
If this concept of Lucifer is true another role of this individual may be to initiate disfavor and temptation among this new poulation, the proverbial "apple" of this Garden of Eden. A crucial figure in the history of any planet, he begins the process of deterioration and decay that leads civilizations to where Planet Earth remains today.
Which one is it? Probably both:::
One transistions into the other, allowing the gods to wash their hands of obligation to The Chosen One.

Now you are faced with a lifetime to work and prepare for your next chance. Too many will waste this time, getting stoned, "Hiking!", working, etc.
