    Some days I just want to throw in the towel and come join you on the open road...

    In the mean time, something strong is on the cards, maybe a double espresso.... :)

    With some of the driving on the road sometimes I wonder if I’ve done the right thing

    Your not wrong and it's getting worse. Last week I had a fully loaded truck and trailer unit blow through a give way in front of me. Fortunately I saw him and his mate coming. He had no intention of stopping, doubt he could have as it was wet on a down hill slope and I bet I was racing with his mate in front. Felt like something strong when I got home.

    I still have some home made brew from last year. Got me some nice Bombay Gin and Cinzano Vermouth for some nice Martinis. The other stash is case of Rioja wines. Nothing fancy or new this year.

    Heading home this weekend and should probably think about getting a brew started ready for Christmas. I normally make alcho ginger beer for summer. Just need to find where i can get a bag of dry ginger and not just a few sachets, like they have at the supermarket.
