For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. I've decided to call the reaction to the credit crunch the creative crunk. To illustrate how it works: Can't afford it? Make one yourself. Something broken? Make do and mend. Capitalism getting you down? Create a new world order like my friend Dawn.
As landlady of the Marksman Pub, Dawn has no interest in turning water into wine. She is however interested in punters turning their redundant stuff into real ale. This Wednesday is the pub's inaugural Barter for Beer event, and the real gent will be the barter barker. I've set aside something off the wish list - come Wednesday these fuzzy fake 'taches will be traded in for a tipple. Roll up roll up!
