1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Glad I'm not the only one that thinks a lot of new world wine tastes like alcoholic jam!
    Probably due to only being able to afford "Trois étoiles" on holiday in the 80s. Dryer than a towel!

    Back on the Proper Job. Just opened a nice Argentinian Malbec from Berry Brothers. Should go well with the Welsh Black sirloins who used to munch the grass a few fields away. Who needs Hawksmoor (and a fraction of the cost)!

    Just a joke. It may have been true 30 years ago but Australia makes some great wine now.

    Agreed, southern Australia wines are often very nice. We've just polished off a bottle of NZ sauv blanc £6 from Aldi and v nice.

    now having a bash at the Tanqueray 1:2
    I prefer this to the bombay gin, or maybe the first drink is having an effect

    In the 1960s I thought that if I wished hard enough I might somehow magic up a Bassett-Lowke 2 1/2” scale Flying Scotsman. I think that might have led to my first realisation that life is basically a string of disappointments.

    Did we get pics of the Mamod in action, or did I miss them?

    ah no, other Requirements intervened today - but having dug it out, can fire it tomorrow if that will soothe!

    Love the Bassett-Lowke pic. I'd love to have the time & funds to play with large-scale live steam.

    Hmm, late to the party again, is it beer or wine. Deffo beer, got some Hen but preferred is some Chiltern Brewery 300's

    Can we all have a badge?

    I love badges.

    Not like Mr. May, they look a bit smelly.

    I am surprised how many are on the beer.

    The sheer volume of liquid puts me off some times.

    Just thinking of the book Saturday Night, Sunday Morning.

    I think Arthur did 14 pints before he fell down some stairs.

    Sneaking in a quick Gordons + T before supper. I really like Gordons, pisses me off when I go in a pub and they have 20 gins but no Gordons.

    What shall we put on these badges ? I love sauce ? Perfectly fermented mead (see what I did there).

    no, I didn’t see what you did there. straight over my head.

    I was thinking of a fine pfm logo designed by Tony L, in a variety of garish colours.

    maybe pink?
