 What an amazing bunch of guys.  Men who like dancing
and drinking wine. Wouldn't do in Australia.  Although
things are on the improve.

I have recently taken the odd sup of beer given all
the varieties available.  My beer of choice at the
moment is a Tasmanian brew - Boags.  Interestingly the
company recently won work safety awards in that state.
 But Guinness is my favourite ale.  Love those
pressurised cans.

Back on health and safety issues, I hope all bourbon
drinkers are boycotting Jim Beam who are degrading
their workers by restricting bathroom breaks.

Dick is right about price.

In the Antipodes spirits are expensive.  I couldn't
believe the low prices in supermarkets in Italy when I
was there a few years ago.
