She was shopping at Asda, wasn't she!

Last year it was on offer at 13.99 GBP a bottle. This year its 17.99 GBP!
actually we were travelling with no time for shopping... she bought mail order and had it delivered to our first location... a bed/breakfast in Rye.

I shudder to think what that cost.. but hey... I'm worth it.

So youre in love with your sixstring and thats why youre here? Are you trying to have your Huey Lewis moment? He got his start playing his harmonica across Europe. I dont know know if anyone in BLS is Bucolic enough to understand the Banjer. You should try the hills! I bet they got plenty of JB for you.
I think it would be alot easier to fall in love with a musical instrument then a woman. I don`t think falling in love with a banjo could get me from Utah to Switzerland. Plus a banjo couldn`t get me a b visa.

How is your German coming?

Look at the social events in the EF Calendar. There are several
happy hours in the Basel and Zürich area.

I work in Olten just around the corner.

Re: Guitars, whiskey, guns and knives.

My german could be better. I took a basic course. Then I started working and my days were too long for another class. I was taking the train from zunzgen to buchs dalikon everyday. I had about 14 hour days including train. I understand alot. I just am not talking as much. I only talk when I have to.

Speaking of whiskey. Why is it so hard to find the Jim Beam here? 8 year, 5 year and Rye.

There are many choices in this life
That we don't get to make
Like who's your pa, where your from
And when the leaves are down it's time to rake

But you can choose your drinking partner
And mine ain't from Tennessee
Yes, it's straight Kentucky bourbon for me
Oh yes, it's sweet Kentucky bourbon for me
Is that MBD? And did we ever get a definitive answer about how easy it is to get good Bourbon in CH? Otherwise, I'll need to plan for an extra shipping container in the move...

Yes of course it is MBD! I saw them live in SLC UT with The Builders and The Butchers. I have all their albums. I freakin love them
