It's a place to relax, a place to laugh, a place to be entertained, a place to ponder and sometimes a place to cry.
I'm still the new boy, but I think I know the rules. I know which seat I can sit in without upsetting the established equilibrium.
But where is everyone?
It feels like that parade of shops near to where my gran lived when I was a kid. Most are boarded up while only a couple survive.
I hope there are a few curtain twitchers around these parts and I hope they join us at some point.
