As title - the 3 top threads are currently all alcohol related. Not sure this is entirely healthy - and I say this as a regular moderate drinker
A few slurps of your favourite tipple is one of the best upgrades you could make. Adds a sense of boogie not only to the hifi but the listener as well.
Good music and a glass/bottle of something fermented have gone hand in hand for centuries…
That’s my excuse, anyway…
I’ll drink to that !
after politics… alcohol unites
unless they start a poll - are we having too much alcohol ??
and then the snip happens…
People have probably been driven to drink after being sucked into the black hole of those Ethernet cable threads that seem to have taken over the Streaming Audio room.
What’s your preferred vice:
- Cinnamon infused vodka
- Blue jeans
Though I drink about 2 or 3 units of alcohol a month on average for medicinal purposes you understand.
True, I guess folk hope the alcohol will take them away. They draw me in like a moth to flame even though I realise they resemble a TV programme that comes on @ 5.15 most nights on BBC1.
I find it interesting that as I’ve got older, I’ve drunk less.
Though never a heavy drinker, I’ve moved from having a couple of glasses of wine most nights, more if friends round as say 20 years ago, to a bottle a week + a couple of G&T’s now. In fact we had some friend around last week who brought 6 bottles between them and seemed somewhat perplexed I was breaking up the wine with glasses of water! It’s not a deliberate health related choice, I somehow seem to just prefer to have less.
So, hardly teatotal but relatively moderate and seems inverse to friends and colleagues.
So far no one has confessed to be a cable junkie, that’s a bit surprising
All things in moderation (which, as a dear old colleague used to tell me, is the most overrated virtue).
That is a wonderful epitaph
I think you should have asked before posting a photo of me!
Last year I joined our local wine club.
We meet every Saturday morning on the grass, just beside the toilet block in the local park…
…i’ll get my coat…!
