Re: Thu 06 Apr - 55@55 again?

Alex,

My Cockburn 1955 is already in the B&F thanks to Derek (I mistakenly referred to it as Crofts). As I won't be arriving until that evening would someone decant it?

My plus 1, no doubt, will pm you.

The last number on a barcode is a check digit if it is following EAN guidelines. So product ref would probably be 199. :663333:

Re: UK General Election in May 2015

Julian,

Unfortunately Sinn Féin/I.R.A. is still funded in those cities. My brother lives in N.J. And he has been asked to attend numerous fundraisers just because he's Irish. He tells them where they can stick it! I'm a Labour supporter what am I supposed to drink? No rude answers please!

Owen,
Likewise I had my best ever Cheltenham, several winners and three long odds places. Couldn't go wrong, shame I didn't have any money on. Well spotted on Coneygree, I had Djakadam.

Best bargain purchase at auction

The latest tasting note from Alex reminded me of the bargain I got at auction when I bought the case of Adams 1967 along with cases of Cockburns 1960 and Taylors 1960. After discarding the serious leakers the bottles worked out at €14.18 each (£10.50 or $11.50). Even the Adam's worked out well! So w...

Re: It's just not cricket

Daniel,

Yes am out here, was up at Lake George (NY) listening to the match and now following the cricket. Not likely to be a double (or treble if you include Harrington's win). Anyone know a good port retailer in Manhattan? I am meeting someone for lunch later today around Washington Square.

For the last ten years Paddy Power has funded my bets at Cheltenham and last year Lord Windemere landed me in real profit. Unfortunately I lost (with help from Patricia) all of it back during the flat season. Unless Paddy Power send me another free bet I will be going through the DT's this year. It ...
