Welcome to JohnMichaels Pub's Blog

Welcome. I moved to Nashville in 2001, and have be blessed to make some wonderful friends. After moving from a house in Florida, to an apartment in Nashville, I missed being able to entertain groups of friends simply due to lack of space. When I finally decided to make Nashville my home and buy a house here, I wanted a space that friends to gather and socialize in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The basement in my new house, which opens into the back yard made the perfect space, so JohnMichael's Pub was born. I have made a couple of trips to Ireland since moving to Nashville and loved the atmosphere of the pubs there. So I made my pub to resemble an Irish style pub to give the atmosphere of a local community pubs in Ireland, but of course it is not a true "Pub" (Public house) since it private place for my friends to gather. I plan to use this blog to post thoughts, ideas, recipes and a variety of other things related to my pub and the parties held there. If you see anything here that interests you, feel free to email me. I have a great group of friends that is very diverse, but I am always open to making new friends.

Day 8 - Hiking

Today we went hiking in the mountains. We went to Arrochar and climbed a mountain called "The cobbler's wife." The photo to the left shows the cobbler (Ben Aurthur) on the left of the photo. The cobbler's wife is to the right of this. It's true height is not shown. It is close to 3000 feet. We did not make it quite to the top, but as you can see by the scenery below, we made it pretty far and had a beautiful view and had our lunch near the top.

This picture of Matthew shows how steep of a climb we had. It was steep ALL THE WAY up.

Below is a photo (left) of me with the Cobbler over my right shoulder. The picture below (right) is me with the Loch and other mountains behind me.

The picture above is a closeup of a field of blue bells on the side of the mountain.
