A Big Thank you

A big thank you to all our many contributors readers and followers. You are all becoming far too numerous to name, but can we say how much strength we take from your constant, friendly presence. Not only are you all the cutting intellectual edge of humanity, but some of your ideas for cocktails aren’t bad either.

And remember this. Yes, things are a bit bad right now. But people have lived through much, much worse. Take the poor blighters in the sixth century. Bubonic plague, wars, climate change, massive volcanic eruptions and really high taxes-all in the same short period. It’s a theme we shall return to. Meanwhile, read all you can lay your hands on about it-and be grateful that you live now.
