Well that is true but a couple of fine collections there. The custom of laying down wine & port for God children and Grand children etc still continues, but I'm not sure if it happens with Whisky.

I wondered if you steamed off the labels and put them in an album or something.

The UK is quite hot on recycling glass, paper, tins, plastics etc, what is left goes to landfill or incinerators. South London has incinerators shredders, granulator plants etc. In more rural areas it costs money to transport refuse elsewhere.

Even out here in the Aussie bush we've been recycling all that stuff for a couple of decades now, and more than a few decades down in old Sydney town including green waste. :-)

Cheers.

Oi, I resemble that remark!

East Suffolk Council

Well, bully for them then.

In more rural areas

I would not class where you live as a rural area. You live on the outskirts of a Town so are mainly outer sub-urban.

In normal usage, "urban" is an adjective referring to busy town life or living; "sub-urban" is an adjective usually referring to life on the edge of a large city; and "rural" refers to life away from busy city life in, say, a countryside village.

A lot of my tawny bottles are painted. We recycle everything but glass. They say they have more glass than they can use.

The wife was in the wine industry. It is basically her chiller/tasting room setup. That's 25+ years of corks, a little over 4K. She can recycle them for money when she decides too.

The wife held wine tastings for her wine business back in the day. Love those owner/employee discounts. The Bollinger has been passed on to the loo long ago. If you noticed in photo the room has a chiller and is kept cool. Wife is into champagne and vintage Grand Anne is her favorite and I get her one on her birthday every year. I prefer a Paul Roger Churchill myself.

Just pulled the trigger on another Bushmills 21, one of my all time favorites. Love that triple cask.

I use to live in Denham, Bucks from '64 to '67. My local was the Green Man in Denham. They try here but they just don't have pubs/locals like you folks have. Visited again in 2000.

I have decided not to continue with this thread and in the near future I will ask the mods to please close it. If anyone else would like to continue another one under their own name then please do so. There will be ample time to copy stuff fom old to new if you wish.

I must ask.

Why do you keep starting threads only to have them closed?

They don't take that long to time out and self closed anyway. ;-)

Cheers.
