    Very interesting Vince, it's usually 65 here, but since our retirement age and pension eligibility keeps pushing towards 70, I dare say folks will lose their discounts too :(

    That's a shame--discounts are nice. I was upset about getting one once. I went to the cinema with my wife, but it was too hot outside for her, so she went inside while I got in line to buy the tickets. When I got to the window, there was an older man standing next to me, and we were conversing. The teller asked how many tickets, and I told her two. One of them was at a senior discount, and I was taken aback. I think I was about 50 at the time, maybe younger. Then I realized the teller must have thought the old man was my father! (I kept the discount. ;))

    It's the one thing google got right in the last week. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Better luck with that outfit then. You know I'm sick of nursing and I see a market for this sort of thing. I always thought the UK was pretty well set up for home deliveries of beer, but obviously not.

    Oh crap! Of course you do! :rolleyes::D
    I'm surprised that place isn't running the whole show. Saying that, I'd really like that place to run the whole show. :D:thumbsup:

    Good man. :thumbsup:

    Oh pants! Your right! I'd totally forgotten about The Bard. :rolleyes:

    Thanks chaps, I'm obviously mixed up as I thought Ashley's Choice came in there somewhere.

    LOL! Ed. You need to watch British daytime telly. Every second commercial is advertising 'funeral plans for over-50's". :rolleyes:

    Cheer John. Does the U.S have a patron saint?

    Lovely. :thumbsup:

    Pushing 70?? Some idiot politician was talking about 78 last year. Western Wealth Redistribution... :mad::mad::mad:

    According to the US Catholic bishops, it is the Blessed Mother, under the title of the Immaculate Conception. I believe Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patron saint of all the Americas.

    Just to clarify for those non Catholics out there, these are manifestations of the same being--the Blessed Mother.

    Yes, that's right. (We are not trying to start a religious discussion--I was just answering David's question. :))

    Absolutely, hence my little clarification to avoid such a thing.

    Good answer, Vine. And much quicker than me.
    But in my defense, I was out getting my haircut. :)

    Over here it's "A Place to Put Your Mom" advertisements for assisted living for the old folks.

    That Peaches and Cream would have been fabulous on a Guardians Edition Jack. :) That’s kind of you Jack. At the price he’s charging, he’s definitely not getting wealthy. :thumbsup: :D

    Yikes! Hopefully your barroom brawling days are behind you :D. They are pretty stout mugs and they hold more than a pint!

    I had a few it with me today while doing some photographing - rain free for the most part today.

    Thank you Jack. Such an object of beauty is that “peaches and cream” Horn Lamb. What a a fine environmental portrait of Brian the Barber,

    Thank you David. Hope you had a Hapry St. George’s Day. Cheers!

    Thank you Ron. Your Horn SFO is ultra beautiful. Sorry I missed out on that one.

    Good Evening Guardians.

    I was carded just the other day when I went to buy a handle of whiskey. This was with me wearing a mask. In the most deadpan voice I could muster I asked the cashier if I still looked like my picture.

    Yeah, not many places give discounts here :( That's hilarious Vince! :D :thumbsup:

    I have been surprised how unenterprising most of the breweries seem to be o_O Go for it David! :cool: :thumbsup:

    They'd never stand for it mate! :D ;) :thumbsup:

    (I'd hoped to include a clip from the opening of A Very British Coup here, but searching brought up all sorts of things other than what I wanted :rolleyes:)

    The Ashley's Choice knives were in 2018 David :thumbsup:


    I remember my dad telling me, when I was a young boy, that by the time I got old people would be retiring at 50 o_O Mind you, my mother told that we'd all have our own helicopters too :rolleyes:

    Yes, it's a shame both the promises made and the samples produced proved to be so inaccurate :( Brian drives over 50 miles to work each morning too :thumbsup:

    Stunning photos gents, well done :) What a visual treat to wake up to :) :thumbsup:

    I hope so Dylan! :eek: The ones here usually hold a British pint (20 fl. oz) with additional room for the 'head' on the beer :) Wonderful photo my friend, you've got everything to hand there, and it shows off those three knives to perfection :) :thumbsup:

    Thank you Harvey, that's very kind :) Brian has photos of his shop in the 1950's, and it's pretty much the same today :D Great pair of pics my friend, lovely Lambsfoot photo (is that a ring?), and a tempting repast :) :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D :thumbsup:

    I have an old friend, whose photo on his senior bus pass was a holiday photo of him in his swimming trunks, cropped off at the waist, so he looked naked! :eek: He certainly got some shocked looks! :D

    Good morning Guardians, how is everyone doing? I hope that everyone is keeping safe, including our absent pals :thumbsup: Sunny weather here again, a shame we couldn't have had it when I could actually go somewhere :rolleyes: Have a good day Guardians :thumbsup:

    Yesterday the old Ellin & Co, Sheffield (maybe from the early 1900s), Lamb foot and in stag arrived in the mail and it is in my pocket today.;):thumbsup:
