Let's all have a laugh / The Somelier
« Last post by Edward Bear on Yesterday at 11:04 PM »

 

The regular Taster at a Wine Merchant's died and the Director started looking for a new one to hire.

A ragged, dirty looking drunkard came in to apply for the position.
The Director of the winery wondered how he may send him away.
 

He decided to expose the drunk's inadequacy and offered him a glass of wine.
The drunk tried it and said, "It's a Muscat, three years old, grown on a north slope, matured in steel containers.

Low grade, but acceptable.


"That's correct", said the surprised Director.
 
Another glass....
The drunk said, "This is a Cabernet, eight years old, from a south-western slope, matured at 8 degrees in oak barrels.

Requires three more years for the finest results."
"I am impressed," said the Director.
 
A third glass...
The drunk said calmly, ''It is a Pinot Blanc Champagne, high grade and exclusive.''
The Director was astonished.

He winked at his secretary, secretly suggesting something.
She left the room, and came back in with a glass of urine.


The alcoholic tried it.
"It is a blonde, 26 years old and three months pregnant - and if I don't get the job, I'll name the father."

The Director said, "You're hired."

Please can anyone advise what is happening with the new build where the old church was in Alcala? All work stopped it seems and some demolition been carried out?

Had a nice enough day in Icod, although it was cold and raining. The bus journey over the mountains was nice though, even if it did reaffirm how lovely Los Gigantes is. We found your restaurant Galeus which was really nice, lovely authentic Tapas, its called Tierro de Campos i think. As soon as we came back over the mountain the sun was shining on our little corner of heaven.

Just like us, an awful year losing my mum, selling the house and having to cancel our usual Christmas in LG. Makes our forthcoming visit at the end of march all the more tempting. Can't wait.

I know this isn't a very informative or useful post so apologies in advance, but after having had a particularly difficult year with bereavement etc... we were especially looking forward to coming out this year for a bit of rest, relaxation and to restore our minds and I just want to say we have definitely achieved that and enjoyed meeting and chatting to new people as well as catching up with old friends. As ever, anytime I've asked for advice on the forum I have been inundated with helpful suggestions from people, it's truly heart warming, and no, I've not been on the gin, that was yesterday  ;D

Thanks all for your help. We phoned Jet2 and they said the works are due to finish by the 18th but all of the diggers will be gone long before then and it will only be the new wall being finished off, so the only noise should be cement mixers not diggers

We think Icod is a very pretty town
Always go to a Spanish Bar restaurant (I think on a corner) with some tables outside, opposite the front of the church; eaten there 3/4 times and like it. They serve some tapas
