If Ivanhoe is going to dish it, he should be able to take it too. And Biro, I am only echoing - albeit less politely - what this site's esteemed editor has already said in at least one much earlier thread (i.e. give cider mania a rest. Ivanhoe ignored this).
I didn't realise I'd made you drink ***** Maurits, I've only met you once, and then I was plastered after a champagne binge. Ivanhoe is absolutely correct, the border area around Herefordshire is stunningly beautiful, so too the border area to the south where I come from, the Wye Valley and Forest Of Dean. I've just come in after a mornings cycling in that area; a few bluebells left, foxgloves coming through everywhere and deer running through the trees. All this in glorious sunshine. Jet, you are really going to enjoy your trip I promise you.
Right, enough of this nonsense, I'm off for a spot of pottering in the garden. Bee, why don't you come to the next social, where I can bore you rigid with a few samples I'll be bringing back to SE1 with me?
