    In Shrewsbury town centre, by St. Alkmund's Church, is an alley that has the delightful title of Gropec**t Lane (redacted as it would never get through outside the BP). I am sure that I remember the full horror being displayed on a local-authority manufactured street name plaque, but nowadays it has been downgraded to Grope Lane.
    I have seen the name elsewhere, City of London for one.

    Another fortnight passes GentsÖ.

    Not for me this time. I am on my holidays with the family as we can travel from Germany as double vaccinated without too many hoops and with free tests for the kids.

    Apart from trying to visit home in the UK and see family of course. Apparently the Pfizer vaccine is given differently here than n Germany to how the NHS does it! Must be that extended delay between doses or something that does it!

    Lightbulb vGTG - 29 July 2021

    Time moves fast....we are all another two weeks older. Some of us may even be wiser!

    Another vGTG tomorrow Gentlemen? (All genders are welcome, of course)

    I wonder if 'Janet' will forgo his real pub friends and join us this time?

    Also, remind me to ask where my mate can best sell his Speedmaster...the password last time was supposed to act as a prompt!

    Invitations sent via PM. I've tweaked the invitation list this time to avoid spamming people, please let me know if you are missing an invitation and would like to attend.

    At most vGTGs we have someone join us for the first time, and it's been a great way of getting to know the TZ community. If you'd like to attend please drop me a PM. Sometimes we even talk about watches!

    Does anyone want to suggest a theme for this vGTG?
