E-Bleets to the Editor
Dear E Barb Wire,

Having stayed at La Barbarie for the first time last, year (2010), we now receive The E Barb Wire. We understand that we are now officially known as ‘Old Barbarians' which we do think is a really funny joke.

However, we cannot understand why a little sheep called Baartholemew (or however you spell it)* should be so popular and as for all the sheep puns, they are hurtful, cruel and certainly do not amuse us.

We would be grateful if you could refrain from this puerile nonsense in future or we will be cancelling our subscription.

Larry and Barbara Lamb Woolwich.

Dear The Barb Wire,

I agree with the above letter.

A Shearer Shepherd’s Bush.

Dear The Barb Wire,

And Me.
Rosemary Sauce EUSTON

Ravis our "Wine Guru” showed his dedication to the task when he decided to spend some of his time off by doing more research.

He popped over to French France with his young filly to gain more knowledge and probably more hang overs!!

I know you will be thirsting to see if his highly honed palate will transfer to our Wine List! I asked him to take some pictures and this was the only one I could use . . .
. . . so use it I will - as our Caption Competition!

Funniest answer wins a Free Bottle of Champagne on your next visit to La Barbarie.
