I must agree with your preference in scotch from Islay. My fave is Lagavulin 16 yr but I have some Ardbeg that I really like too. My Laphroaig cask strength is also a fave of mine. All very manly drams...wimps need not apply. Your lamb foot SFO is very nice too.
That's my favourite whisky too Bill, but I love Ardbeg too, in fact all the Islay malts other regular buys are Talisker from Skye and Highland Park from Orkney
You know what they say, great minds and all that. Lagavulin 16 is my favorite dram as well. I’m sure I have a Lagavulin 16/Lambsfoot photo around here somewhere, but for now this one’ll have to do.
A Lambsfoot blade doesn't have belly
Except when it does.
Boiled Leon, it always makes me think of cricket bats, even though that's a sport I've never had any interest in!
I know next to nothing about cricket, but I’ve wanted a cricket bat ever since I first saw Shaun of the Dead.
Since much of it has been re-built in rather ugly fashion, I was surprised to come across this contemporary virtual tour of the Hartshead area of Sheffield.
The Barlow family lived and worked at premises next to the Old Banker's House, which was lost when the street (Campo Lane) was widened.
Despite the ugliness of the modern buildings, which is rather typical of Sheffield city centre I'm afraid, parts of the area still retain some of their old character. It's a shame the film-maker didn't take us into St Peter's Close, which passed between the Old Banker's House and the place where the world's first Barlow knives were made. Here's a look
Great photos, Jack!
Hope everyone is having a pleasant evening I went over to Sheffield, in one of my pal's vintage vehicles, to pick up a Romesse pot-bellied stove he'd bought (his is the one that looks like a Russian hand-grenade!). We went via Deepcar, where Stan Shaw's widow lives, and onto Stocksbridge, where she was secretary at the British Steel plant. The guy my pal bought the stove from showed us his 'shed', which was like a small museum, with half a dozen vintage motorcycles, dozens of old oil cans, and a load of other interesting stuff, even a few knives Only the second time I've been outside Leeds in over a year, so it made a nice change just to have a short road-trip
That sounds like an good day!
