The gin “Xoriguer” was brought back from Mahon, Menorca, last year by my son. It is without doubt the best Gin I have ever tasted. It is apparently distilled from wine instead of grain, and has rich Mediterranean scents and flavours. Absolutely Gorrrrrrrgeous!
The kitten didn’t drink a drop! Neither can she play guitar, though she does have a plunk on the piano from time to time.
The Amp is a cheapo ‘Park G10R’, which is not a bad little transistor practice amp, with what appears to be a ‘Tube screamer’ front end or something very similar. It has a nasty little 8 inch speaker, but I’ve nobbled the output so it can be plugged into external speakers. I’m currently using the 2×12″ cab from an ancient H&H 100IC combo. That helps to really fill out the sound.
It’s a nice day today! not really, but it’s not raining at the moment. We were looking at flood plains this morning, we’re quite near the flood line of the river frome. The flood line starts at chipping sodbury and follows it’s course into Bristol. And it occured to me that I’ve nearly spent my whole life living near the banks of this river. I suppose that makes me a fromelian…. beam me up scotty!
The picture looks across to Monmouthshire and the Forest of Dean (Glos) and is taken from the highest point in Bristol, Cossham. The Frome would be down to the left, by about 2-3 miles.
Agg! slaps head! I mean down to the right, which where I always meant, it’s just I’m right left dyslexic. No wonder I get so dizzy!!
Ick… I’m going through one of those phases where everything is on the move. Thought I’d better update this page a bit, but the first thing I’m confronted with is a pulsing banner advert…. almost had me reaching for the barf bucket….
Why is it so dark and dismal, more rain on the way and a good chance that the Big match will be called off tonight, there’s a pitch invasion… inspection at 4pm.
What big match? Bristol Rovers Vs Fulham replay in the 3rd round of the FA cup. Tom has his ticket…
I’ve signed up on MySpace… … It’s the music, so many bands have samplers on their sites, even some quite obscure blasts from the past have fansites… I think I’m getting hooked. My only gripe being that many sites are slow loading, too many ‘pimpMysite’ doodads around the place, which my browser doesn’t seem to like.
Cassie is getting fat! She been eating far too much, while we’ve been feeding up little Maisie… who isn’t so little anymore, especially when she’s fluffed up, her tail must be nearly 5 inches in diameter… lol…
I’m amazed, my photostream is now working, does this mean yahoo might be fixing 360… I hope they’ve had a change of heart, but I doubt it…
