As that is my real surname, YES. Also, one of the estate agents I registered with this week, spelled my name correctly, without asking me to spell it slowly.

So things went a bit downhill after your time working with James Hunt then?

I am not Lord Thomas Alexander Hesketh, 3rd Baron Hesketh, neither am I any relation, unfortunately. Although my Dad was Thomas.

Now this is the sort of thing I love about TRL! 🍹

Some folk still talk about that legendary night the 'old' forum closed down and the regulars had a party and trashed the place. 😄

Wonder what lobster based snacks are available behind the bar...? Anyone dare ask...?

To foil hoarders, all the bogroll in the pub toilets will be Izal from this point onwards.

Aah, you're getting me all nostalgic, Futtocks - used it a time or two and still have the rectal scarring to prove it!  Izal made a disinfectant fluid too, which no doubt inspired this nursery rhyme parody in Verse and Worse, a Faber Editions' collection of humorous poetry:

"Ding, dong bell, Pussie's in the well, but now we've put some Izal down, and never mind the smell!"

Taylors Landlord?  Sam Smiths Yorkshire Stingo? Youngs London Special, Rudgate Mild (a strong mild, goes down like milk)   Bushmills Black Bush Whiskey.    The RL on loop should be Leigh v Fev from last September.

Yes, but only because you called it by its proper name. 

There is no such thing as pear (or any other fruit mix) cider. Cider is apple!

At one time, WR, I would have completely agreed with you.

However, you and I both know that proper perry is made with special pears, not suitable for anything else, and, in this country, grown in a fairly small area concentrated on the Gloucestershire/Herefordshire border, around towns such as Ledbury.

So the problem then is what to call the utter p*ss made from concentrated culinary or dessert pear juice.  Reluctantly, I can see a case for calling it pear cider, if only to ensure the good name of 'perry' is not sullied.

Like you, I hate the growing trend for calling cider in this country 'apple cider', which is an American importation.  You are absolutely right; just 'cider' means it is made from apples, or should do.  The irony is that we have imported the 'wrong' phrase, as, if I have got this right, 'apple cider' in the USA tends to mean a non-alcoholic drink, whereas the proper stuff is called 'hard cider'.  Is it the same in Canada?  Could any local TWP fans confirm or correct this?

The French cider/perry-making area in Normandy and Brittany also uses commendably simple terms - 'cidre' and 'poire'.
