Thread Name: It's Trafalgar Day... (21 October 2009)
Subject: RE: It's Trafalgar Day...
If you'll permit a toast from an admirer in the US, I raise a glass of Goslings 151 and murmur:

Here's to the ships of the Navy,
And here's to the ladies of the land.
May the former be well rigged,
And the latter be well manned.

On a more somber note, a moment of silence for all the dead of two centuries ago.
