    As I walked thru the patched grounds of the desert, I panted for their was no glory. I fainted for there was no fire. But the herald soon returned, and a new flame has been kindled in the tabernacle. Yea, a new fire. Now I shall return to the Religion forum - for long has it been cold, but now shall it be full of fire, as in the days of old. Amen.

        LOL

        And I had resolved not to mention the scarves. I picked up a nice Hugo Brass on my travels though. big_smile

          If you will recall, the flock prefers genuine LV.  It is a (pre-emptively snipped banned word) to wear anything else.

          where did you travel to?

            Up the Rhone valley, across in to Belgium (Brugges) then across the channel. A couple of days in London (wife shopping) then down to Bath to see my Grandfather who is 95 this year. Back down to the coast and across the channel again to Brittany. Spend five days there, then down to the Dordogne for a few days and back to the south of France. No computer for 2 weeks. big_smile

            Brittany was wet but dramatic:

    Thanks all. Yess it was a good trip.

    @ fiery - Grandpa was surprisingly well considering his various ailments. Took him out in his wheelchair for a few beers. Well, he had one I had the rest smile

    Brugges was lovely. I will do a hub with some photos soon.

    It absolutely was not the same without you! I tried real hard to not miss you, but did anyway. lol
    Sounds, and looks like it was very nice. Were the beers cold or warm? big_smile

      lol

      Thanks.

      The beers were the perfect temperature. You would consider them warm I suspect.

      In England - we are still allowed to drink un-pasteurized beer. If you chill that to a very low temperature - you kill it. US and Aussie beer is all pasteurized - which needs to be freezing cold to taste anything like acceptable. wink

        you know the beer in Australia Mark. but when it is cold enough it tastes so good.

          No question. If it is 98 degrees outside and you have been sweating all day wink But it is almost undrinkable at a warmer temperature.

          FSM would never pasteurize beer - it is a sin. big_smile

            Indeed, along with the nefarious practice of sliding beer along the edge of the glass to reduce the head ... Thou Shalt Pour For At Least Seven Minutes, so sayeth FSM ...

        I doubt I could drink it any other way! Nothing nicer on a hot (dry) day, to unwind with and relax. If ever I get to England I will surely try it warm (the perfect temp.) and see for myself.
