’s lesson is: three pints Guinness good, four pints Guinness bad. I shall try to remember this lesson for the future

A very slow day — surely by this time in my life I should know better!

Out to dinner at Flor in Carlton. We both got a surprise walking in the door, from the review in the paper I thought it was more of a restaurant — turns out to be quite small, and predominately a wine-bar. An impressive wine list with entries from all over Europe and Australia, and enough variety in what was available by the glass. Chicken and Leek pie was very tasty, followed by Orange and Pecan pie, coffee and a liquer. I was in an experimental mood so tried some of their grappa — contrary to previous advice I had received, grappa is not an Italian word for petrol, it was quite tasty and went very well with desert and coffee.
