Cappuccino in Harris + Hoole

After lunch in Thai restaurant in Jeffries Passage, cappuccino and cookie in Harris + Hoole.

No cookies. They had migrated to a cookie jar.

Very noisy downstairs, not much better upstairs.

I suggested they act as a distributor for Transition Free Press. As the winter 2013 edition was only published this week, good time to place a bulk order and see how it goes.

I am usually late afternoon, today mid-afternoon.

Upstairs where it was moderately quieter, it would an improvement if no sound upstairs, and downstairs the level of upstairs (a few paintings, tapestries would also help as very hard surfaces), I noticed many people using upstairs as their office, or using skype to chat to their friends. Quite a good idea I thought. Which only serves to highlight the crass stupidity prevalent in the Rotten Borough of Rushmoor, £15,000 of public money to be wasted installing free wifi (actually a scam as will be used to steal personal data, to bombard with spam), which according to the leader of the council is exciting news as people will want to visit Farnborough. Somehow I think not. Why would anyone, enjoying coffee or a tea in Harris + Hoole, in a pleasant environment (apart from the noise), travel to Farnborough to sit in the street in the cold, and risk being mugged, to use the so-called free wifi?

As I cut through The Angel Hotel Yard, I was tempted to try coffee in Coffee Culture. But is is only tiny, and they had the doors wide open. Harris + Hoole wisely had the doors shut to keep the place warm. Coffee Culture was all but empty, Harris + Hoole very busy.

Prime window space being used for a local estate, tacky and a very bad idea.
