Several years back we arrived in belgium a good few hours early for our ferry, so decided to have some lunch in a local bar. Good food, but the only beer was Stella..

a couple of pints later, it turned out to be OK, and we were on the way to the ferry.

Once onboard I ordered a Stella in the bar.

What a mistake!!

The Belgium stuff was brewed in a local brewery, whilst the stuff on the ferry was a UK brew..

..that tasted like they'd used water from the local privvies.

Moral is, UK lagers, or is that laaargers are best drunk when the good stuff runs out..

The mini keg of Wye Valley Butty Bach went down very well (and very quickly) yesterday - highly recommended

And as HardGravity has brought up the subject of Lagers (not usually my tipple) - On Friday lunchtime I tried a pint of "1985" Lager from Wye Valley brewery (again) - absolutely nothing like the watery and weak tasting offerings I remember from years ago - very tasty, clean and moreish

It's starting to look as though I'm developing another problem (apart from my LBA) - BLD - Beer and Lager Drinking

Shouldn't that read "BALD", or is that an entirely different problem?

To Dave. Your friend when in Prague should have had "Pilsener Urquell" (Urquell Means original) From the city of Pilsen. OR he should have tried the beer from Cesky Budejovice "BUDVA". that is the origins of that "STUFF" Budwiser UCH. A long time ago a man left the Budva brewery and went to Germany where he brewed beer. He then went on to USA and Budwiser was born Again UCH. Back in the sixties Buwiser tried to buy Budva but the Government wouldn't let them. BUT it now looks as though they have. In Lidl a few weeks ago there was some beer for sale which was called "Budwiser origonal Budva" NOT TRUE. There was also another beer in Prague which was a dark beer which was 12%. That was strong. You gotta remember I'm in my 80's and travelled to many countries in my working life. From the 60's through to 2004 so I've tried them all.
CHEERS Vic.

Well I'm sat in the garden, just had a paella from the BBQ kitchen and have a glass of white wine in hand.

Ha, so true! Explain that one to the wife

On a different note my wife was on her phone scrolling through FB when she said to me "That's your image". Turns out a street artist had painted one of my images as a super size painting on boarding around some building work in the local town. I drove down and took some images and then contacted the council to find out if they commissioned it and I get a call from the man who did it today. Got a bit tense on the phone, he couldn't see he had done anything wrong and even said to me in so many words what's the fuss, it's just a photo! After a chat we've decided that when it goes onto their FB page, as they have a rather large following, that I'll be included as a collaboration between us both with a link to me and where the image can be bought. The work was really good so they should have known better as an artist to lift an image off the internet and also about intellectual property copyright. On the plus side he said he'll never use any of my images again in the future as I had the right hump about it.

Kinda lost for words with the attitude !

I would tell the company who commissioned the work that you have not agreed to your photo’s use and they are in breach of copyright. Tell them you have spoken with the painter and given his attitude you are not minded to give permission and the only acceptable solution would be for the painting to be whitewashed. I personally wouldn’t get involved in any joint venture to save his face, you are letting him get away with it and diminishing the significance of rights theft. I guess the painter is being paid so why should he benefit from your work?

A domestic insurance policy I once had included cover for works of art. If the artist died, the amount of cover immediately doubled. They understood a fundamental truth that many of us don't appreciate: your pictures will only be worth much when you're not around to benefit from it .
