They mingle, I think he knows all the inns and clubs in Manchester, you could always send him a pm (personal message)
 
I would guess it's all about making contacts and thus getting invitations, and being on mailing lists

Oh lord am to old for that stuff my husband works for the youth service and he mingles with many people both official and unofficial I suppose years ago he would have been called a child protection officer.
The difference btween Kent and my county is that there is a tradition of'travellers'  I suppose we would have called em gypsies but they would be insulted at that word. but its getting the adult travellers to take their children too school the parents don't seem to see the need , cos you see those  children might turn out better than their parents ???
But they are very proud clean people

I don't know about our 'satanic mills' but I had to turn off a programme about Victorian London last night as it was all about the filth (sewerage) there and how it was cleaned - eventually
 
yuck!

just visited Arthurs pages he's way above my head I understand him(Ithink) but he must have a mega i.Q He reads a lot and so do I so I understand that but I cannot get along with or endorse Hawkins and dawkins They are rude and insulting. neither do I get along with darwin he's far to simplistic for my tastes I mean what about the million and one bits inbetween I like what Arthur has done to my beloved Alice in wonderland its all in the vocab wonder if he's read Coleridge's the ancient Mariner? any congrats on escaping a cult.
