Dorchester away

Just thought I'd take a bored look in, to see what's afoot at the bastion of piety, righteousness and equality that HFC has saved its soul by morphing into... with "ambitious" Queen's Park's team of "Rayvolution" mercenaries looking set to sink a Saturday acca for the 2nd time this season.
I hope you're all well.
I was vaguely considering trekking to Dorchester in a fortnight's time. Just being bored and inquisitive.
Good day out.
If you don't mind paying £4 for an organic sausage roll and a similar price for a fair trade coffee.
Difficult to see how a club in a town with that much money and no rugby tradition, playing in a Football League standard ground, can be so consistently crap and short of cash. I noted ex-Fulham fullback Robbie Herrera was appointed manager in the week. Assisted by ex-Plymouth boss Kevin Hodges, who played 700-odd games for Argyle. Hopefully Herrera's lost the habit of wearing Jheri-curls and Hodges has lost the habit of keeping clubs slumming-it near the bottom of divisions they had no business of dropping into in the first place.
No "Trainline" giveaways on offer.
Hardly surprising. "Far right" and "Evil Tories" though they may be, Her Majesty's Government seems intent on nationalising and monopolising the practice of giving away money, by ensuring that nobody else has any.
There won't be any trains on offer soon - if people keep going down with this lethal disease... which has so far killed almost as many folk who died of starvation on a small island to the west of us in three years in the mid-1800s... and almost 70% of the global tally of road traffic accident fatalities.
And there's a replacement bus service from Wareham... on which social distancing guidelines will doubtless be observed.
Still not impossible that I might turn-up... Yersinia pestis, Attila the Hun and the imminent Chinese conquest of the globe notwithstanding.
Merry Christmas!... Though getting merry at Dorchester pub prices might be difficult.
