Latest snowflake outrage

Born and died in Cockfield, near Bishop Auckland in County Durham. Buried in an unmarked grave in the Quaker cemetery in Staindrop as coming from Cockfield he had obviously suffered enough.
Moving the thread a bit further, Mark Knopfler wrote a song about Mason and Dixon where Dixon is called “a gullible Geordie lad”. It’s well worth seeking out as it’s not only a lovely tune but tells the story well.
Mason and Dixon’s endeavours can be laughed off, but it was a bloody good effort at surveying and mapping considering the constraints they had.

Port? Blame the frogs. When we couldn't get French wines due their insistence on being at war with us (again) British importers found a sweet fortified wine in Portugal the people back home might like. It's sweet because they squirt in brandy to kill off the yeast before all the grape sugar has turned into alcohol and you still get a strong full bodied wine. A rather fortunate turn of events.
I thought the brandy went into the raw grape mix.?

it was on the telly with Pru and Tim.
 
When asked how many sugars in your brew in SA, the polite response is 'Two please, six if it's a jam tin'.

Did nobody mention a measure of port in the last half of your Guiness? A bit like peanut butter and jam sandwiches. Sounds an odd combination but rather moreish.

Guinness and port is excellent as the port just takes the slight bitterness out of the Guinness. The only drawback being it doubles the booze content which can sneak up on you.

The sneaking up bit doesn't really matter but it's the hurting bit next morning which really does.
