A gin or two, then vintage port or wine

    An interesting poem, why we drink, I enjoy a couple of glasses of wine to help me wind down, but my downfall is not knowing when I've had enough lol
    10 for this

    But a drink from the divine cup makes immortal. If anyone has to drink, let him sip divinity. Mark, you really slaughter, you slaughter the delusions.

    First class moral Mark. 'Dutch courage'. We all need a drink. The old adage 'looking at the world through rose coloured spectacles'. My slant on life is 'Looking at the world through the bottom of a guinness stained pint glass'. Doesn't have the same ring to it somehow.
    Loved the poem
