Re: New project idea

i have an associate who enjoys the taste of his home grown tobacco. i would suggest as with all these delicate matters that you try to hide your activites as much as possible and not advertise what you are doing. if you are caught however i believe the fines are quite extreme.

Re: Review: Jameson Irish Whiskey Spectacular Double Bill

Re: Review: Jameson Irish Whiskey Spectacular Double Bill

jamesons is my daily drink of choice, im never far from it and agree it goes well with coke as a digestive or hot day.

i have a regular supply and know a good duty free dealer that supplies me with 2 x 1litre samples for 29.95 euro.
