    I see and you are buying this booze then Lucky. Well seeing you have your wallet open. And this doesn't happen often. How about throwing in a bag of crisps as well or pork rinds.

    Got a better idea. Let Basket get the beer in and the crisps or pork rinds

    Quite right no offence meant. As ex-patriot Scots, Emac I - on St. Georges day - will join in a toast to the future King. And as we are both overseas we raise our glasses to the "King over the Water" :D :D :D :D
