Decided to go into mad scientist mode. I've made myself some aniseed vodka (basically chucking star anise in a bottle and leaving it) and it tastes lethal (in a good way). Could be a great shooter in bars if someone marketed it.

My wife and I were chatting to the kids over dinner and I ended up trying to explain why son's best mate is "mean" to daughter who now is at the same school. It reminded me of this ad . . .

Got this t-shirt after collecting 15 bottle crowns off of Fursty Ferret bottles. It was hard work but I managed it in the end Mrgreen

I'm a big fan of Aberlour single malt, my bird go me a bottle of a'bunadh cask strength 60.6% no less. A much heavier taste than the standard Aberlour malt with rather fruity Speyside taste. Not sure on the cost but if you get a chance to try it I'd recommend it. Certainly one of the nicest cask strength whiskeys I have tried.

It has just occurred to me (yet again) that I should have put a Wink at the end of that.

No offence intended.

So, I was in York this weekend, having a few beers with some of my old uni mates.

Nice place and I paid £6.56 for 4 pints in one pub!! WTF?!!! It was quite a nice little pub as well - wasn't a Weatherspoons or anything like that. Unbelievable.

What's that, £1.64 a pint?! Jesus - I haven't paid that little for a pint for about 10 years. Twitch

I remember Fosters and Carling in our student union were £1 a pint. That was in 97/98 though. Codger

Fosters and Carling are still overpriced at that price. Wink

Had a pint of Oxford Gold in some posh village in Oxfordshite the other week, nice enough pint but expensive at £3.50. Happily though, the pub that's handily on the route to football have yet to put their prices up since the latest budget, so their prices are still £3, which while not great isn't too bad for the south.

Local pie shop doesn't supply them with pies any more though. Bastards. Sad

£3 is good for the South these days, or at least good compared to Brighton.

There are a several places in the city centre that have hit £4 a pint now, and that's pub prices, not clubs. Some of the local ales are cheaper, but pints for less than £3 are pretty thin on the ground these days.

£3.50 a pint is now completely normal here.

I'm off to York later this week for the Ebor meeting. I don't suppose you remember the name of this pub; it may come in handy if the winners are not forthcoming! In the past I've found the Samuel Smith pubs very reasonable
