Bumping this only in light of recent discussion about and interest in trainers in the Holy Trinity thread. And to provide a bit more insight for those interested in what trainers we had on our feet in the 60s and 70s in London. James

Do yourself a favour and try one of the Bushmill single malts, either the 10 or 16 year old, which are easy enough to find. Or the distillery sold 12 year old if you can find it. I visited the Bushmills distillery on the north coast of Ireland back in 2003 and bought a bottle of...
Being an Irishman I'm still drinking what I've always drunk - Guinness in the pub, Irish whiskey at home. I never drink at home what should only be drunk as draught in the pub. And I never drink in the pub what I feel is best drunk leasurely at home with friends and family. In the same way that I only smoke cigars when out for a walk on my own. I detest ruhsing cigars, it defeats the purpose of and benefit gained from smoking them. My three current favourites Irish...

This shoe was worn by loads of kids. I used to wear them. But can I find a pair of these original black and whites nowadays? Can I buggery! I don't even know what they're called, if indeed they...
