Mmmm .. trying to catch up on their British counterparts perhaps?

who knows what motivates the young.  I have certainly forgotten :)

Talking of which ... I am not hugely fond of whisky but did manage
to sit up all night drinking a complete bottle of Isle of Jura talking 
with a very good (and now dear departed) friend.  No hangover afterwards 
either, so either the whisky was alright or it was the absinthe.  It's what 
the Christmas break is for after all.

And I have been to Amsters from time to time but never work related.  
Last time I went a travelling companion was most distressed at the 
price of baked beans.  Heinz baked beans cost a fortune over there.

Come to think of it, that was another Christmas.
