I can’t drink wine, due to acid reflux. I prefer very sweet drinks…Faux Baileys or Grand Marnier

​​​​​​All wine? If so, that's a pity.

Yes, but I am not a wine lover in any case. As I said, I prefer very sweet drinks.

Sorry New Zealand, second best today

I'm smiling now, I can't even imagine how those at the Aviva are feeling!

Oh - picked up the "new" motor this morning ...... driving back through the drizzle felt like freedom day after 3 weeks without one
Dinky, but happy to go - and for someone who learned to drive in a Hillman Imp, no problem staying in the power band.

My sister keeps me up to date with the rugby even though the Cambridge Rules is my jam, but that was a hell of a result today.

Glad to see you got your new car too

That somebody actually bet some money on a certain darts player today to beat Jonny Clayton. Clayton won 5-3 and the name of the losing player Rusty Jake Rodriguez.

I was in Marshalls yesterday, getting a pair of wool socks. At the checkout and going to pay cash, around $10. The cashier said the customer at the next checkout had paid for my purchase. So surprised and very thankful. I will go ahead and wait for an opportunity to pay it forward to someone else. Made my day.

Hillman Imp was my first car, my uncle who owned a garage, sourced it for me. I can still remember the reg no, FBC 453C

Latecomer! So, yours was Leicester-registered, mine was local to me at the time - BFB 579 B, registered in Bath, 1964. Neither number plate still exists (unsurprisingly!)

However, my Matchless G2 CSR, which my old man sold "in boxes" when I was back in Ireland, still exists and is of similar vintage. FEL 351D was registered in Bournemouth in 1966 and had a Red and Chrome tank (standard Matchless) but is now described as "black" (?)
