When the game takes off and tops the bestseller lists in 68 countries, there will be a craze for having your own customised set of Things developed.

Bottle successfully decanted at 6.45 this morning (more decant time than I would have preferred but little option in the matter). It's a bit of a trek across from Reading and so I'm likely to be there at 6.30pm.

My non-Symington non-TFP ≤1994 Port just decanted: red cherry, some heat, very bright and fresh. Optimism!

As it happens, I have a spare bottle of non-Symington non-TFP ≤1994 Port sitting next to me as yet un-decanted. Is it worth sending up the bat signal to see if anyone else not yet on the list is available, and they can adopt this bottle? Mr Coombes? Rupert? Others?

Jdaw1? Of course not. There's a code in there somewhere, I'm sure.
