I just got back from a week in Belgium and the Netherlands. Their thoughts about <hawk> Brexit <gob> can be summed up as sadness, pity, incredulity, and/or (rarely) amusement, mockery, contempt, laughing stock, etc.

100% agreement on Ardbeg, though. That it's at least as good as the best Belgian beers.

I got a litre of Ardbeg 10-year on the ferry back today. Heavenly. It's just a wonder that I can still type, what with the Tripel Karmeliet and all.

Fairplay mate. That is a long time to straddle a border.

Typical example of the NL / B "border" . . .



I dare say that's her bike.

I was being obtuse.

"I just got back from a week in Belgium and the Netherlands."

In order to spend a week in both you'd have to stand astride the border.

As I explain this I realise how pathetic I am, please don't feel the need to respond.

Ardberg is great. It's like being gently mugged by elves in the Magic Forest.
