Et parce que en France nous aimons discuter autour d'un bon verre, you all are right, you can have Pineau and Pinot. La preuve sort du pudding les copains:
On ne compte pas moins de 26 variétés de cépages, des plus emblématiques tels le Merlot, le Cabernet, le Sauvignon et le Chardonnay aux plus confidentiels comme le Pinot, le Gamay, le Chauché Gris et le Colombard. Une belle palette de nuances qui confèrent aux vins leur diversité.

Of course you are correct Gerard, but to be fair we have sherry which is a similar type of beverage, usually served when the vicar comes to tea.

It must be my age Peter but on reading this I instantly had visions of Brian Rix in a Ray Clooney farce standing in front of the vicar with his trousers around his ankles!

Peter, you remind me one night at home with friends, after few hours I had only one remaining bottle and it was Amaretto. One guest just said it was for old ladies only but was OK because always better than Coke or water! Guess what, this guy showed that an old lady can be tough!

In Corsica (what a nice country!) they used to make and drink alcool de myrthe but now it seems they've rather Limoncello. I remember this home made myrthe thing can produce many secondary effets the first being headache! My translator gives myrtle think its correct, yes?

Haven't tried it there but it is something that is made in Devon and Cornwall. Reinforcing the links between Bretahne and those counties.

Thanks for the links, Chris. Is it me only or how would you rate the images quality? OK, no sound due to a technical issue to be fixed soon.

Sound is working now. Re quality it is good for me.... in the youtube settings (the gear shaped thing at the bottom of the video).... click that and you will see maybe a Quality heading and a list of resolutions.... ensure it is set to 1080p HD and not on auto. If on Auto it may automatically pick a lower quality like 720 or 480.

Thanks, merci mon pote!

What I did notice is that any advert like Monaco GP or Casino, Crédit Suisse, TAG or whatever are pin-sharp images and not cars.



What is crystal clear is the difference between historics and modern: when Vettel is fighting to keep his underwear away from the instances at Miami you've a topless man driving at Monaco GP and he could be awarded by some majesty!!!

What a fantastic show it is, so many cars in working order specially the pre war stuff. Marshalls have been busy it seems they had a live training. One driver going the opposite way dans la montée de Beau Rivage was innovative if not a little bit scary!
