Re: One quiz at a time

Having overheard further muttering by a cheeky, and also handsome, man sitting next to me who has been drinking whisky, it might have been invented, or at least published, in 1510 by Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa. Also, the 2×2 corner squares add to 34.

Re: One quiz at a time

Was it used as a door? Ditto with the Yemeni guess.

Re: One quiz at a time

It was used as a curtain. Maybe a tent curtain? An Alawite area, of which there are several?

Re: Taylor Vertical - Friday, 22 March 2013

JDAW is lying. Special permission has not been sought. Miss Wiseman, who has her 7th birthday on the 22nd of March, will not be happy. This is between you and your eldest, Darling Husband. Leave me out of it. Sorry, but I don't really think she'll be too happy. If it was up to me, I'd say no. But if...

Re: Taylor Vertical - Friday, 22 March 2013

It is not me, the Mrs, who can give permission for this tasting. It's a young Miss Wiseman who might think the 22nd March is an important date.

Good luck, husband. I don't think it's going to go your way. Sophia is a force to be reckoned with.

Re: Olive Oil

Yes, I would love to know the results of this tasting. Olive oil is one of my favourite condiments. I pour it on nearly everything. It's delicious! Also, it's hard to find great quality. They say the acidity of the oil is most important to determine taste and overall quality. I don't buy olive oil t...

Phew! I was starting to feel doubtful of your situation, DRT. Good to know that you can now de-stress (if you're in any emergency need) and duck into any nearby pub for a pint. And since I have discovered and now know that there are a lot of pubs in London, this brings me a sense of peace. AHB, are ...

This is how to commit a proper domestic faux pas: Woman: Should we have a party for child's birthday that Saturday? Man: Hmmm? That's the weekend I'm in Portugal so you would have to cope yourself.

Oh the shock! The horror!

Mr Bridgeman, I'm appalled. I'm with the wife. She should still not be talking and conversing with you. She has my FULL support. If she needs a shoulder to cry on, send her to me. I'll comfort her.

Shame on you.

A good wife has many duties for her husband: I'm sure most of you can name a few.

Here are my thoughts on this just after decanting: Nose: grapes and raspberries. Tongue/Mouth: Caramel, slightly nutty, dark cherry, vanilla Sligh...
