Well we in the south are now getting it, just seen 70.46knots passing Hurst Point FORCE 12! Batten down the hatches I think we are all in for a big week of winds

Off the top of my head there's an 18yr Highland park, 10yr Springbank, 18 caol ila, 21 Ardbeg & an Edradour port wood finish, + others. Could be a long winter
I'm currently half way down a bottle of Conemarra (?) which is a bit of a revelation

Connemara, by the Cooley Distillery - it's the closest thing we have to Whisky

The rest of the list sounds worth getting "locked in " for. I'm gonna spin a KH-11 round to pinpoint yer gaff...

Willk don't waste your time with a genny, just make sure there is enough fuel in the landy to get to pikey's place!

After a certain point the face is so numb it doesn't matter However - I was reminded that I have 4 Gecko's under the seat and always forget to use them !!

Yes - the Opti was one of the last that Barrus had in stock and I got an amazing deal from Lawrence at Barnett Marine. Don't quite understand why they have stopped importing them >>> same weight as the 135/ 150 doh.
Just had all the coils replaced under warranty after one failed.

The fence I put up in the summer is now being held in place by a few hammered in met posts and some ratchet straps . Knew I should have used more concrete.
Now sitting down to a nice Talisker with a gale blowing down the chimney.
