I understand all but the last bit. Why would anyone want a cup that the rest of the world has already had? Surely it would be empty by now, or, what little dregs there are in it, would consist mainly of the spittle of the rest of the world anyway! setteehidey

Well done Victor, and so very true. We are a hardy lot to put up with this cold and wet weather.
Your post reminds me of Saturday night, it was our 21st wedding anniversary and just by coincidence Runrig were playing a gig in Inverness so we had cause to celebrate...Rather than pay 2 for the cloakroom I walked from the carpark to the venue in just my tee shirt on a very cold wet windy night. When we got to the queue to get in I heard all the comments that I must be mad to come out in just a tee shirt.......But....I saved 2, thats the important thing.....and....that 2 will go towards paying a 450 oil bill to heat the house for the next 2 months.

Everytime I've been to Scotland in winter, I find all their houses and buildings/churches warmer than in the south though. It could be just me:D
