We can carpool with ya Anders but my plan is to drive back to town that night. We'll be doing more of an afternoon thing if that works for you.

I am still coming.

Hamish I am bringing that print for you, I missed the mailing deadline.

Did Marc-Andre get an invite yet, he's practically neighbours with you Perry.

Does Sanford, and Beaubien know about this too?

I'll be coming back Friday night also. Perhaps leaving late afternoon, gettting something for supper en route, then descending upon Casa Nadine and Perry like a herd of turtles. My car can fit four total, assuming a reasonable payload of 'stuff'.

Tough question, and I don't have enough information to answer it. I guess it depends on just what you're planning to do once you get south. Is that where your neighbor and his wife live? Or is she going south with you?


Tough question indeed. fortunately the world is my oyster.

Anything that annoys Donald Trump is worth doing, and worth doing well. Another round of Glenfiddy, please!

Excellent link Bruce, with Trump being described as "The World's richest toddler" and a "Useless sack of bile".

As for Scotch, I saw a nice bottle of 25yr. old Laphroaig in a Calgary Airport jar store. Alas, I was a bit short coming up with the $568.00 to make it mine.

Is it really worth it? Must be some darn fine scotch!

Pretty expensive way to start a fire. Why not just use (old style) $20 bills?

Well, it was Calgary, so what did you expect? The good stuff?

I was killing time in Heathrow on a stopover to Madrid a couple of years ago and wandered into a Scotch shop. Not much in there for $500. Most of the bottles had 4-figure price tags, and quite a few were up into 5 figures. And that was pounds, not dollars. The biggest number I saw was 22,000. Which translates to about $35,000.

And no, it wasn't a 5,000 liter barrel, just an ordinary size bottle. Distilled by Macallan, but not recently.

Sounds like Luke has been into the scotch already...

I've been in that scotch shop in Heathrow. Shocking! There will always be a place for people with too much money to spend it. If single malt is your fancy, then 85 year old bottles that cost as much as a new pickup truck may be just the right thing for you.

How much does that work out to per drop anyway? Hmmm... 750ml bottle, approx 20 drops/ml equals 15,000 drops. 22,000 pounds sterling times 1.59 equals $34,980 CAD. 34,980/15,000 = $2.33 per drop. WOW

The best alternative to Scotch, premium Kentucky Bourbon.

Makers Mark or Woodford Reserve the official bourbon of the Kentucky Derby.

This isn't the Jim or Jack that gave bourbon it's redneck rep.
