What's on your mind?
scorpiodog: Wow! Good point. Can't wait for the locusts, boils and darkness. Hold on though. We haven't had the rapture yet! Mar 13, 2020 11:20:56 GMT
ocarolan: Over 70s eh? Looks like quite a few of us might be spending more time on the Forum before too much longer..... Mar 15, 2020 9:41:00 GMT
Martin: :-X :-X :-X Mar 15, 2020 11:15:39 GMT
martinrowe: Keith. I'm a bit concerned about the lack of contingency planning on this site e.g. has extra virtual alcohol been ordered for the Plucky Duck (it may get busy), and have extra virtual (cheese and onion) crisps been ordered? Mar 16, 2020 16:47:31 GMT
ocarolan: Martin, - I have just ordered an endless supply of everything and to be absolutely certain I doubled the order. :popcorn: :popcorn: :guinness: :guinness: Remember to keep a virtual 2 metres away from staff and other punters though please. Thankyou! Mar 16, 2020 22:36:53 GMT
ocarolan: But, in the real world, I tried a bit of panic buying myself today at Morrisons. Sadly, not a single bottle of Merlot to be had .... was this because Merlot is especially active against viruses or it was the 2 bottles for a tenner special offer? Mar 16, 2020 22:47:29 GMT *
martinrowe: What did you get instead? Mar 16, 2020 23:01:02 GMT
ocarolan: Malbec. It has some of the same letters in it, but wasn't on special offer, so I had to break my usual spending limit and pay £7 a bottle. Mar 16, 2020 23:13:25 GMT
martinrowe: :) Mar 17, 2020 8:22:11 GMT
geddarby: You could try some Cote du Rhône and Pinotage from Lidl. A little rough but smooth enough for my coarse palate. I need the wine to dull my frustration at every local live music event within a 50 mile radius having closed. Mar 17, 2020 16:09:38 GMT
ocarolan: Cheers ! Mar 17, 2020 17:54:02 GMT
robmc: Mar 17, 2020 22:52:24 GMT
ocarolan: ... separated by a common language! :D Mar 17, 2020 23:43:08 GMT
robmc: :D personally Merlot is my go-to too! You have fine taste sir. Mar 18, 2020 11:07:34 GMT
Onechordtrick: I seem to be allergic to Merlot; fortunately Pinotage, Shiraz, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chianti et al all seem to be OK Mar 18, 2020 16:07:03 GMT
ocarolan: Just started the Malbec- very pleasant, but not worth £2 more than my usual Merlot! Mar 18, 2020 18:39:53 GMT
andrewjw: Carmenere [preferably from Chile ..sorry Greta ] is the new Merlot IMHO : Mar 19, 2020 18:05:41 GMT
Akquarius: if there's on thing I do not have to worry about atm then it's my wine cellar :D Mar 20, 2020 6:29:54 GMT
martinrowe: There's a Ralph McTell article and clip on the BBC news website Mar 26, 2020 12:49:08 GMT
Onechordtrick: Put the bin out last night and the whole street applauded. Never felt prouder. Mar 27, 2020 11:11:18 GMT
