Thanks Carl - after having had the pleasure of your pictures from Åmål I must say the film title must be out of place! It certainly looks like a very charming place.

Mr.F, the title is a reference to the lack of things to do here for the teens. Åmål actually came in second place in a competition of the prettiest small towns in the world. The winner was in Canada I believe.

For bitter, maybe I'm spoiled by the likes of Lancaster Bomber and Oxford Gold.

Is that the Brakspear Oxford Gold, Nick? If so I'll try it out as it is available here. I'd love to try something called Lancaster Bomber, but it isn't available here. Spitfire Ale is as close as we can get.

That is an adorable picture, MP. :thumbsup:

You where right about the Oxford Gold, Nick. It's really good, I'll still keep a few VB's around but the Oxford will be a standard in the beer cooler from now on.

I had one with dinner, honey glazed chicken with a basil sauce and pommes duchess:

That would've been okey anyway, Nick. One have to try new things to find something better than what you got. And it's not you like you actually asked me to buy any Oxford Gold. Nor did I need to buy six of them.

Lancaster Bomber is from Thwaites if you ever see it.
Spitfire (Shepherd Neame) is good, but not up to the other two, for my taste.

Nice picture musky! :)
Thanks C57, Nick - if you can beleive it my buddy snapped the picture with a cellphone! Pretty decent quality for an electronic add on!

Musky

PS: I'm off for Toronto next month and will look for those beers you discuss. There's an LC that carries a pretty good selection of "foreign to us" beers, where I'm going to look.

I hope you're all ready for another yacht picture. This hapened to be right outside my window at work today. It's called "A" and is a $400 million super-yacht owned by a Mr Andrey Melnichenko of Russia. A few super yachts have visited Bergen in the last few years but this must be the weirdest and biggest of them all.

That yacht is crazy looking, Mr. F. Kinda like the UN bought a VIP submarine. :shock:

Took a few pic's after moving to the house.

First night, just having unpacked the essentials (click on the itty-bitty pic's to see them in original size):

Nice picture, Mr Fjeld.
The yacht was here in Gothenburg as well not that long ago. I took the car out the the outer part of the harbour and had a lokk at it, and it sure looks strange... and big!

My mother-in-law's hubby turned 65 yesterday and I had to take a pic of the cake Mrs. Chef made for him. Sponge cake with lemon curd and wild strawberry/whipped cream filling:

For those that love Golf. We drove past Turnberry last week. Hardly anyone there. Unlike now, and from tomorrow The Open begins. It's looking fantastic. Here's a view of the leaderboards over the 18th.

Yeh Bro but I've lost a few kilo's since my surgery :) Actually don't know what Mrs DT is so happy about, she doesn't even drink whisky!(though she is a good sport and indulges me in my whisky weakness).

Actually she did say that Mr Horigami(pictured) served one of a hell of a JD and Diet Coke. :lol:
