No. A blind fumble in the dark, in vain.

It isn’t entirely clear, but “tile.sweat.craft” might be nearer. Or “stands.plots.varieties”.

Seizing ancient powers.

Explain “cafe humid palace”.

As you would surely expect, there is a good answer relevant to the business of this forum. But what?

Bonus request. I’ll bring mine in decanters. If it isn’t too inconvenient to do likewise, please do likewise.

Blind or sighted? I lightly prefer sighted, but will go with the consensus.

With the absence of the Gandys, we have lost two-thirds of those of the intended attendees who were at the first use of the placemat software, fifteen years ago. We’re still on, but I feel less need to reproduce precisely an enjoyable but not of-itself remarkable tasting held in late 2002. Should th...

Re: Thursday 28th September - Port at the Boot & Flogger

Oops. I should have explicitly asked that somebody check. Please consider it a standing request.

I might be late, so have left my bottle at the B&F. Please decant and quality-assure.

Re: Thursday 28th September - Port at the Boot & Flogger

Backup plan: I print Tuesday evening (rather too early methinks), and deposit placemats and bottle on Wednesday.

Who, other than Ben, want to take possession of the new cufflinks?

Is there anybody able to print on US Legal who will be punctual? • Parma ham with melon, burrata mozzarella and fig dressing. • Chargrilled sir...
