On a much lighter note. I have just spent a pleasant afternoon in one of the best real ale pubs in the northwest, drinking great beer and watching a rather indifferent game of Rugby between England and Italy followed by a fantastic nail biter game between Ireland and France. In between, enjoying a fantastic double burger of wild boar and buffalo.

Satisfaction overload.

Obliged.

What were the scallies doing while all the bizzies were down the alehouse? Crap game, Andy Goode looks like a car salesman. That's as technical as I get about rugby.

It gets worse... Down in the southern end of the Baja California peninsula (maybe in Sinaloa too,I can't remember) there are little places that sell "Vasos Locos" which is the complete mixture of all the condiments you can find inside the door of your refrigerator plus a couple cans of the cheapest beer available. I'm not kidding about the condiments I have seen people add soy sauce and worcestershire sauce but chile sauce, tamarind pulp, salted plums, salt, lime, clam juice, ice and tomato juice come standard. Put that in a big, tall styrofoam cup like they use for smoothies in the U.S. Top it off with chile powder and mix it with a special straw thats coated with this sweet-sour-spicy paste. The foam cup plus all the crap in it somehow makes it more acceptable to carry while walking or driving around and drinking 2 beers for breakfast. Why the local youths in La Paz all seem to swoon over this beverage is a mystery to me since it has to be the most stomach turning concoction ever.

Are you guys talking about smoking marijuana? Isn't that against the law?

No, my mom says it's really bad and that if you smoke marijuana cigarettes, you'll be addicted to crack cocaine almost immediately. I guess they're really similar or something.

I'm afraid your has been misinformed, pot-marijuana leads to heroin addiction.
Oxycontin leads to Republicanism.

Neoconism, actually. There are no more Republicans; all extinct in the Great Selling of America of the 1980's and 90's.
