    Visited with Mr Beady, BannedBatz and Geovtac-in-the-footx2, I would class it rude not to try and stick your head into George Barnsleys if your knocking about in Sheffield and you are already covered in pigeon poo. Its a place that has been covered a million times, but one that i have always really liked, and wouldn't be bothered about seeing tiem after tiem...
    I really do like the place, so much so the ladies thought i had moved in and pretty much tried to leave me living there, what can i say..... don't go derping with 3 ladies, a fella just doesn't stand a chance
