Funeral was today. Wee yin sailed through it.I think you have definitely made the correct decision.
There’s quite a thriving market for the sale of so called rare 50p pieces going for crazy money on eBay. I’m convinced this is some form of money laundering. These are prices that these items sold for. Genuine vendors then see these and then think their coins have this value. The genuine rarest non misprint special edition 50p coin is the Kew pagoda which in mint, uncirculated condition will go for between £50-100.It's probably a placeholder for something illegal that those 'in the know' are bidding for.

Same for myself then please, good innkeeper.

So... whilst enjoying my Talisker, going to have a browse - see if episodes are available online.
Anyone else recall those series?
AKA Bloody Mary good hangover cure.Was thinking about a drink to invigorate and released I used to make one.
Not had this tipple for many a year now, kinda just forgotten...
Vodka, tomato juice and Worcestershire sauce.
Pour generous amount of vodka, add desired quantity of tomato juice, then a few drops of Worcestershire sauce.
1. Do not stir.
2. Consume contents in one swallow.
First sensation should be the lovely tomato juice, then a kick from our Worcester sauce at the bottom and finally, a notable hit from the vodka.
Wondered if there might be any other suggestions for a perk-me-up imbibment?
I put strong fresh brewed coffee in a flask with two squares of Lindt 90% chocolate and a shot of whisky, to keep me warm in the winter...Non alcoholic.
My gaming group (RPG and Poker) used to swear by coffocoa. It was a very string hot chocolate with 3 espresso type shots in the mug.
The chocolate kind of hid the coffee taste so that people drank it and felt unexpectedly revived at :4.15!
