Thanks Martin,
I'm really quite relieved, which in a way surprises me, but at the same time, this forum is a 6 year record of my first layout built pretty well solo. So, a lot of blood sweat and humour is recorded in it, which I've never done before nor have I experienced the camaraderie of so many who have shown an interest. So yes I'm very glad it's not going to disappear.
Thank you for all the time and effort that you put into the forum and the program that's made this possible.
Kind regards
Andrew

Hi Martin.
I would like to add my appreciation to Andrews', even though I chose to write up my epic on the Scalefour forum, my sentiments are very similar.
Regards
Tony.

Previous weekends saw me go through a few of Morrisons white wines from France and Italy. Well with Chicken this week its back to a bottle of white wine, and have a Falanghina in the cupboard,

Last weekend we had beef so today it was back to Morrisons to replace the Beaujolais villages wine. I decided to have a change of red wines, good job as they had sold out of Beaujolais villages so chose a Valpolicella Ripasso which caught my eye, still in their "The Best" range, but it will have to wait till we have something a bit more suitable to go with it
Hello John,
I don't drink anything with a meal - I find it lowers my already low stomach acid levels and prevents the digestion of the meal.

However it is worth mentioning that Tesco have Smirnoff Vodka on offer at £16 a litre this week which is what I normally pay for the 'understrength' own brand stuff. Two bottles went straight in the trolley tonight - and double clubcard points to boot. A couple of mugs of that helps me off to sleep - my is it that time already :)

BTW Those Axminster/Vallorbe files you mentioned a while back are really nice. Thanks for the tip.

Rob

Well it's not quite the weekend but it's heading that way quite rapidly. I just had a nice bit of slow-cooker pork shoulder. Pork can be a right pain to slice but we got an electric slicer some years ago and I'm really glad we did. It slices everything from bread, as thin or thick as you like, to waafer-thin roast-beef and ham without the slightest problem.

This week replacing the white wine, this time a Vermentino from Sicily, on the label saying a light refreshing wine with a hint of citrus !!

@ Martin.
For those topics like Andrew has would it not be a good idea to create them in a pdf file or something similar?
I must admit i am pretty impressed by his work and from my point of view it would be nice to have it as a easy read out.

And as a side note would it not be nice to create a "project page" for those kind of projects, or is "share and show" for this purpose?
With a addition for the "project manager" to only "show section" and a subsection for responses from and to forum members??


With best regards Igor

Ps, regarding vodka, i can be very simple:
Try to find a Polish vodka named: white bison, very strait forward, very good in taste and it won't "put hair on your chest".

The original recipe for Polish vodka is with potatoes and carrots, distilled on a very low temperature ~84C but above 81C

Hi Igor,

For this new forum we already have an option to do that:

export_topic.png


The topic will be displayed in simplified form as a single very long page. After waiting for the whole thing to load, use your browser's Print function, and on Windows10 select Microsoft Print to PDF as the printer.

(Similar virtual PDF printer programs are available for earlier versions of Windows.)

From the old forum, all topics will be available in an archive in a similar single-page format, and will be able to be saved as a PDF file in the same way.

But it might be a while before I can get the archive available. In the meantime it is all still available on the old forum, and you can do the same thing. At the top of a topic on the old forum click the Printer friendly button (on the right) to see a topic as a single long page. Bear in mind that some topics are very long and will take a few minutes to load fully as a single page. The old forum is at:

https://85a.co.uk/forum/

cheers,

Martin.

Hello Igor,
I have not tried the Polish vodka yet but I will try to find it in a shop. We have Polish food stores here in England so maybe I can find some. The price of 'bottom of the range' alcohol is very low in England as big supermarkets try to make you come to their shops :)

A lot of the cost of spirits goes to the goverment as tax of course:(

Be very careful on this one.
Try to get the real one and not the "export" ones. Ask for this.
A good Polish store will only sell you "there own", at least our does and we are regulars there.
For a really nice Polish beer to enjoy in the sun or bbq: Zywiec(again not the exported ones), but taste is a personal thing, if you are in the Netherlands try a "Hertog Jan" or a "Coninck"(both Brabants) or a "wickse witte"(limburg).
All 3 beers are from the region i was born, i must admit.
I was born and raised as a true Burgundian...spoil yourself, yes today the bbq is burning, on wood of course, oak and conifers.

If i my ask: Do you have some "local" specials?
