    @Prester John - Your being of Mexican and Irish descent, you would enjoy the movie "Duck You Sucker" with James Coburn and Rod Steiger directed by Sergio Leone about an IRA bomber on the run who teams up with a Mexican revolutionist during the Mexican Revolution thereby making you a natural for Tequila.

    Myself, I like tequila but I like it straight up - no lemon, lime, or salt.

    I KNOW I would like that movie! James Coburn, Rod Steiger, AND Sergio Leone!

    I do like sipping Herradura silver tequila, but it's pricey. I'm sure I'd like the reposado and the añejo too.

    La revolucion is like a woman, according to Jack Palance.
    I tried to get Old Toffeewings to revolve, but no dice. Not much like a woman, either.

    We got in trouble the last time we talked about movies, though, didn't we?

    Good to see you here Russell, and your ebony '18 :) :thumbsup:

    An excellent film, released under a different title here :thumbsup:

    Some have speculated that the part played by Coburn may have been inspired by Dr John Creaghe, an Irishman, who lived in Sheffield for a while, and who was involved in the Mexican Revolution, being a confidante of the Magon brothers :thumbsup:

    I also like my tequila straight Ed :) :thumbsup:

    I'm not going to mention the two movies where Robert Mitchum played a gun-runner during the Mexican revolution. Dynamite was involved there also. Old Sleepy Eyes-

    What was that old film where the guys are transporting nitro-glycerine over the mountains in trucks? I actually know someone who was in that (been dead more than 20 years now), but can't remember it's name :rolleyes:

    Edit - The Wages of Fear For some reason, I thought it was something to do with the Mexican Revolution :rolleyes:

    Very good Ron! :D I love cheesecake, but it seems to be a bit out of fashion here these days unfortunately. I noticed they had it in that "American Diner" I went in at the weekend, and had intended to have a piece, but the breakfast and coffee was so bad, I gave it a miss! o_O :thumbsup:

    To be fair, it wasn't really American food! :D In fact it was neither American nor food! :rolleyes: ;) :thumbsup:

    Hope you're having a great day Charlie, I was just about to text you, then I realised I only have your landline number, so you would just get an automated voice message! :D :thumbsup:
