How it all began, as told by Ronnie:
"Basically it started as a joke. It wasn't intentional. I painted "Ronnies Shop" on the wall as we were going to open a farm stall but we never got round to it. Then two of our friends painted "Sex" next to the word "Ronnies" as a joke one night and it stuck. I hated it, everyone loved it. After about 6 years we opened a bar as a joke and it worked! Now here we are, in the middle of nowhere, doing well!"
