Could argue some of the fine points, but, overall, it might work.

Actually I think our friends across the pond might have got it right this time! They've appointed somebody who is not a politician to the most senior politician's role on the planet 'cos we're all sick of politicians messing everything up and feathering their own nests. Also they've appointed somebody who pretends to be a complete nutter when actually he must be quite brainy. Whereas we, in the UK, consistently appoint people who try to appear brainy but are actually nutters (apart from Jeremy Corbyn who tries and succeeds to appear to be completely out of touch with reality and who is as mad as a box of frogs but we haven't appointed him to anything important yet so I'm right). Our equivalent is Richard Branson except he is far too sensible to even dream of becoming a politician. Or is the old adage true.... 'Vote in haste, repent at leisure' (plagiarized from the adage about marriage of course) rather like ourselves and the Brexit vote...... We'll see! Had too many coffees this morning whilst waiting for the washing machine to finish. Off into the workshop in a minute to fix magnetos and unscramble head!

not quite sure about that  beezermacc, the man got to be president by blatant lying, slagging off everyone that he assumed would not vote for him, encouraging divisions in their society and making promises he has/had no intention to keep --- sounds like a pretty typical politician to me

With no confusion over its national identity, Guiness happens to be one of my favorites from the tap.

I'm staying away from politics here to avoid the inevitable debate amongst US members of opposing view.

Wise man, mind you, I can recall a few heated debates over favourite beverages, in particular any with links to footie teams  *fight* *beer*

My cousin from Ohio just brought me 4 cases of Yuengling Traditional Lager, brewed in Pottsville, PA. An Austrian I used to work with said "best beer in the world". Haven't tried them all yet, but I'm working on it.
As to politics, don't think this is the place for that discussion.

Yuengling is great beer. I get it whenever I see it here in Chicagoland.

Hi All,
Getting away from the original topic and on to a much more enjoyable subject,  *beer*  *woo*

A fairly local small brewery to me is going from strength to strength with its range of beers and stouts
I will be calling there before Christmas to stock up  *smile*
