Re: Mon 13 August: Emergency

Given Monkey's birth it really should be Stone Terraces, though I think someone would be tightening his head band if he s trying to open those this soon...

Re: Mon 13 August: Emergency

I would hazard that Monkey is irrepressibly drinking Taylor '85.

Re: Tues 24th July - Bring a bottle to share

The monkey did a fantastic job, had us all laughing (especially with the tasting notes, very well observed and written), even if he didn't score any points on guessing the wines; his efforts were appreciated. Talking of the "What is it?" scoring, this is the first night I remember where nobody (exce...

Re: Cockburn Vertical, Tue 2nd Oct 2018

14 bottles for 14 people on a school night is appropriate. More is unnecessary, but desirable if rare or delicious. I would be very interested to try two bottles of 1975 Cockburn, from the same case, with the same fill level and the same weight, side by side with one having been given a long decant...

I have decanted (2pm) and smells... glorious (what else!).

Quite simple, but nonetheless, please check for errors.
All looks correct.
I should arrive at 6; I can print and bring unless anyone else will be arriving earlier.

JDAW, can you please update the placemats?
Done.
Please could you update the images in the first post to show the current placemat? I know not how.
They look correct to me - if still incorrect for you, you may need to reload and/or flush your browser cache.

Why don’t I do so and one can be JDAW’s adoptee.
Thank you.

I’ll make the paperwork.

Edit: the placemats added to first post.
Thanks Julian - I was going to do that this evening, but only just back now.

Absolutely (note that food order has already been submitted, so you'll need to order on the night - I'm sure they'll cope).

Re: Software that makes placemats

Why do you keep get/setting the seed, rather than simply setting it at the start of the script (presumably to a fixed value for determinism) and then just using rand throughout thereafter? Because sometimes multiple passes of randomness need to be aligned. "need"? no. "want"? perhaps - I would like...

Re: Software that makes placemats

Observe that the layout of the stars look very similar, with a slight offset. (The eye might start at the top-right of the ‘7’s.) Indeed, relative to the centre of the circle, the stars are identically positioned. Is this: • Perfection? • Tolerable? • Erroneous? Tolerable, though less than ideal. W...
