Hey Jonny, welcome back. You may have given up hookers but have they given up on you?
It will be like when Elvis was drafted into the army:eek:

Thanks, Joe, Chas and others for the friendly greetings. But yes, I have now, since I’m well into my 79th year on this planet, decided to ignore the advice of my doctors, because what the frug do they know anyway. In short, I have decided to stay faithful to my long term intake of alcoholic beverages, which are as follows (on a sober day),

about 8 to 10 cans of mid strength beer (3.5%alc/vol) during the day, and about half (sometimes more) bottle of wine with evening meal. A generous sundowner of vodka and tonic (switching to aquavite at Christmas time) and then another generous helping of my favourite whisky (Makers Mark, Tennesee Bourbon) before happily hitting the sack.

I plan to will my liver and kidneys to any medical research organisation that will have it for their ongoing research on the evils of alcoholic abuse.

And a Merry Christmas to you all, legionnaires and ‘wallabies’ alike (couldn’t resist that pun). And a happy new year as well, of course (if we could only figure out how to get rid of that twitter guy) that is. Cheers!!

3'5% is not too bad ..i think the average here is 4'9%.

I only switched from full strenght VB a couple of years ago (4.7%). Basically because I had problems with vertigo (staying upright) after the same amount of beer. Same problem with hookers. But why giving up cigars, I don’t know.

3.5% have better taste than regular (about 5%).

I knew a Gary Kelly in Djibouti, he came from the Rep I'm pretty sure he had a brother who had served too.
