Re: The Beer You Are Drinking Right Now

My stock of '1845' has now passed 50 pints, which is probably as much of a stash as I need. I had another last night and oh... it's just superb :lol: This evening I have enjoyed two beers of a very different style, and I enjoyed both more than expected. They're 'black beers' and historically I've ne...

Re: Robo-HYP

This got me thinking - I wounder how long it will be before we see a Robo-HYP app ...? (Perhaps I'll build one) It can't be that difficult in essence: 1 Buy this. 2 Hold it. :lol: You'd have thought HYP would be an ideal strategy to be robo-ised.

Not cool dude.

Re: Great mash-up music

Not for me. I used to be a NIN fan, saw them live etc and they were one of the most terrifyingly deep bands to see. To mix that with girl-pop suggests the former was something to play with or make light of, which IME it really wasn't. Hence this one does not work for me at all. What might work bette...

Not forgetting that the European to West Indies Slave trade simply used the same practices established by the Muslim Slave trade that operated all over the Med and around Africa long before.

Re Fullers 1845, neither Sainsbury's nor Waitrose have it in stock locally, but Ocado have promptly shipped me 20 bottles at the excellent offer price. Ocado say they impose a limit of 20 for offers but I didn't test the system. And with a bottle of Taylors 10 Y-O Tawny added it was all delivered f...

On my PC I couldn't log-in [it usually would in the same way], and it wouldn't take any iterations of what I believed the p/w to be. Long story short I did a password reset on...

Re: Weather outlook for the FTSE

Perhaps there is also a 3rd way? Using the DividendData approach and including Special Dividends. The CY% is based on prior 12-months so there is no banking hopes of future Specials assumed. On that basis at time of writing the CY is 4.62%.
