    One glass? You must be kidding, that's not even an aperitif. I just left a great six hour BBQ. :cool: .Thanks for the nice thought. btw.

    Today is also the centenary of the battle of Bazentin Ridge the second big push of the Somme campaign. I was driving through the village in a convoy of minibuses when the car in front stopped in the middle of the road while someone came out of the farm house clutching two bottles of vin rouge and the car driver handed a bagette to him. Cliche or what...
