Thank you WW.

Sorry to hear you’ve not been well,
I’m sure a good night’s sleep is a cure for all ills.

I too was unwell yesterday after two bad nights of sleep.
Last night I had a couple of glasses of Vino Collapso’ and slept like a lickle babby.
Woke up bright as a button this morning.
Take care.

I’ve been sat with my laptop since 8 o’clock, so I need a break.
There may be one or two posters yet to come on, so I’ll leave the answers
over till tomorrow, and also mark any late comers too.

I’m having a few scoops now.
Night night.

I'm afraid that, once again, I clicked on 'Post new topic' instead of 'Reply to topic' so if you look at 'Not again' my answers are there. CBA going through it all again.

I did about eight questions then lost them, Ray. So I took a bit longer than expected.


I always highlight and right click 'copy' before I submit the answers. That way, if something goes amiss with the posting, I can simply go again by clicking 'paste.


I had been slutchless at the time, but more than made up for it later. Embarassed

I may have mentioned this before, but I can’t hold the volume these days,

so after a can of Draught Guinness, (I’m short of B vitamins at the moment), will switch to wine,

home made Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonay or Rose, no more than two or three!!!!!! LOL Embarassed Very Happy

I was in no state for quizzing this morning, Ray.  If memory serves, I was on some stronger than my usual stuff at a beer festival last night.

“I was on some stronger than my usual stuff at a beer festival last night.”

Sounds like a good night was had LOL !!!!!!

As I have said, I tend not to drink too much beer these days, but if I do it has to have an abv of 5% or over.

I do like ‘Old Crafty Hen’ abv 6.5%, ‘Abbot Reserve’ abv 6.5%, which are full bodied English beers, but prefer lighter ‘lager’ type beers.

Currently supping, courtesy of my home brew shop in Bolton, ‘Zywiec’ Polish lager abv 5,6% and

‘Orangeboom Premium Beer’ abv 8.5%, absolute dynamite!!!!!!!

I am also drinking Draught Guinness for health reasons LOL Very Happy

Methinks this should've gone on the 'Tonight I am drinking' thread.
