After?

I like tea in the morning, in the lunch-time, in the afternoon, but beer in the evening!

On tour or at any time of the day it is definitely tea, I can leave the coffee behind quite happily. But if I do need a fix then a cafe is usually available.
Strangely I always used to drink coffee in preference to tea but went off it during pregnancy.
Worst and best places for coffee; Scotland. Up in the highlands on 1st tour the only places for 11's would be the highland hotels.
"Morning coffee for 7, certainly take a seat in the resident's lounge" Coffee would then be served in large jugs, 2 cups each and a plate of biscuits, wonderful.
We then found a cafe in a small town, coffee half the price and undrinkable. I was asked if I wanted sugar in mine and the chap preparing it informed us it was already sweetened????????????? Turned out he was serving up Camp as coffee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



R2 the lady in charge at Chipping also works in my profession and does 1-2 night shifts at our place, so if you want some coffee i will see what i can do.

Doesn't work for me!

The way it's done on a Mac, is to open "International" in System Preferences, put the French flag on the top line of the screen (Menu Bar), then temporarily swap into French for the symbols you need as you need them. You can have as many different languages available on your keyboard as you want.

I can't be bothered these days. I hardly ever have to type "Day Jar Voo"!


Mick, on a mac press down Alt and then e (let go of both), and you should get a ´ with a yellow background. Press e again and you get é. You do the same for the n in mañana. etc, etc.

quicker than copy/paste, and definitely quicker than International.

cheers,
Doug

It's not cheap, but I know Betty's sells it's own Monsoon Malabar up here. My wife used to work for Betty's and that was her favourite coffee - we always have to get a bag if we go into town. Just an excuse to go to Betty's :)

A quick check and I've found it on the Taylor's website so you can buy it online;
