LBV. Leave the VP's until they are ready to try to excite you.

I've lost my voice (I know, no bad thing :roll: ).
When John Terry ran up to take that final penalty (Or so we thought :D ) I was negotiating with the Devil.

What a Roller Coaster. What a victory.

These pre-match nerves are doing my head in! Golf played. Snacks and dips in place. Beer in the freezer. Guests at 6.30.

God to hear they livened up the City. Not so good that a Russian fan was stabbed after the game. I've been offered numerous £125 tickets for Moscow (Face Value), but it'd cost at least at least £1000 for travel, bed, etc. (hence loads of tickets on offer). The thought of the average Russian Football...

LadyR and I enjoyed our first chance of indulging in the fine are of "port-buying" after months and months of living on a strict budget. So we bought: - 3x magnum Warre 1977 - 1x 0,75 Warre 1977 - 3x Fonseca 1977 - 4x Graham 1983 :D 88) Excellent! Is that in Oman, or are you visiting somewhere? If ...

Having one of the last glasses of this Port, tonight. Still pleasant, but with a dry aftertaste that isn't pleasurable. Also getting a hint of pepper.

Well, lets just say that here in the south we generally consider the people in the coastal provinces a little thrifty or even stingy. I can't imagine this was always the case because in the 17th century (which we call "de gouden eeuw" meaning "the golden century") it were those provinces that were ...

Remember he's a Scotsman, so the conversation may go along the lines of "So my share is £50? So that's £40? £30 right? when do you want the £20 paid?" :D Alan :D That reputation is not limited to Scots only... You don't have expressions like "a Dutch treat" or "to go Dutch" for nothing...

I'd love it to be opened on that night. Great Cockburn's and a mystery that just might be(But probably isn't) a real gem. If it transpires it is Fonseca, wont that be an interesting comparison?

Anyway, Andy decides.
