Indeed, indeed! And there's absolutely no sense in drinking it when you arent going to enjoy it.
Pertaining to the post after yours, as well, Yes, I thought I might have to keep my head
under the parapet for a bit!
Not, of course, that I or any on this board, would condone too much alcohol, but I was brought up on a tot of rum
a day which was issued in the Royal Navy
until July 1970. If the Queen encouraged me to drink it - who was little old I to say no? Even when the Admiralty decided that it was too much hassle, they still issued 2 cans of strong beer
per man/day then later, having been promoted, a couple of glasses of wine at dinner (if you didnt have the Middle Watch) was entirely un-frowned upon.
