Champagne for my real friends…

…real pain for my sham friends. Bring consternation to your enemies by having a splendid and productive New Year.

    I always love some Bacon in the morning!

    Happy New Year, Perry!

    A small saucerful forJamie?

    As one more likely to lurk than post can I thank the regular contributors, whose opinions I may sometimes disagree with but who make their points cogently and without malice. I wish them and my fellow lurkers a Happy and Healthy New Year in the hope that somehow against the odds our country and the wider world can become better, safer and freer places.

    I myself popped the cork of a mango-flavored pale ale last night. More to my taste — but only on special occasions.

    A toast to the health of all decent people!

    I stayed up last night… Not so much to welcome the new year, but to make sure the old one leaves….

    Madness, it’s the nectar of the gods!

  • I had eggnog in the afternoon, but at night I popped a Coke.

    Wiltshire is a good place – you will be O.K. in 2024 Perry.

    Nobody understood my pun! I was referring to Francis Bacon, whom Perry was quoting. There’s no hope for Britain. I love a good pun- here’s one I saw recently- ‘Buns are the lowest form of wheat.’

    “Nobody understood my pun!”

    Went right over my head, but I have the excuse of illiteracy. Many here ought to have gotten that one.
