Right

Those men amongst you who take the odd sherbert-any tips for staying upright longer when on a bit of a session ?

Bringing a mate out to my new place for a boozey few days and need to be at my alcofinest

Frankly I used to be able to booze with the best of them but 7 pints now and I am ready for the off. Won't look good if I die so quickly so any advice welcome

Rarely get hangovers-from I started drinking I always down a pint of cold water before collapsing into bed and that does the trick so no probs with day after-it's lasting longer I need, I suppose I need a drinkers version of viagra

I find that I can still drink with the best of them if I stick to Guinness. If I drink Lager I get full to the brim after about three pints.

Now that's very interesting and I know where you're coming from as I find the gas in lager as annoying after a few pints as anything else whereas Guinness just slides down

Prob is not all bars I will be bringing my mate to on my guided tour have the old black stuff

Spain has an amazing variety of lagers but I have really got into draft cider in a couple of my locals and frankly that's not the stuff to drink if you're trying to pace yourself

Yes I reckon you're on to something there Michael-I shall try and steer him mainly towards the pub that does Guinness

As another old bloke who likes a tipple, I would suggest no more tha 15 minutes per pint, no more than 2 sips per pint, be sure to forget your wallet so your mate has to pay, be sure to be in bars where the complimentary taps glows freely and above all avoid my bro in law he will make your eyes close. Have a great sesh, been years since I did it.

Drinking sessions really do bring out ones nationality traits

Some English -despite it being a comedy stereotype we have about them-really are miserable barstewards, don't buy rounds and drink halfs of beer!!! ( just like some Irish seem to enjoy a fight in a bar rather than a beer!!)

Not all English I must add. Indeed a friend I have made in my village ( although he is adamant he is Irish as his family were from Waterford) has an accent like someone off Eastenders- def buys his round, but even he said to me when I met him at first- " bet you think I drink halfs and don't buy rounds!!!"

Absolutely smashing fella who uses " cockney"phrases which literally have me in tears laughing.

He was telling me about someone leaving the bar without paying and he said ( imagine this with strong cockney accent " Yeah Phil, I turned round and as soon as it was 'is shout he was on his Russell's!!!!"

Here in the north we don’t have half glasses as far as I know, we have real creamy northern ales none of that flat southern pisswater and we are renowned for our generosity again unlike those southerners who wouldn’t even talk to you.

Proper blokes up here and so are the lads.

I find that if this old West of Ireland solution Works every time for me.
Get an old onion (soft but not rotten) cut it in half and carry one half around in your back pocket for the nights drinking.On getting home put it under your pillow and I can absolutely guarantee you will be as right as rain the next day and ready for another days drinking.Continue to use the same onion for as long as the drinking spree lasts before discarding the onion.
Believe me this actually works, you will thank me afterwards.

Well funny you mention that Martin as the banter ( sometimes a bit frosty ) amongst English I have met in the village is often North v South

I deliberately stir it sometimes and some of them are easy to windup about the North/South stereotypes. Have to say the dozen or so I have got to know are really sound .

It's very easy when moving abroad to be sniffy, even elitist and opt for a place completely non expat. However unless you have a full grasp of the lingo -having people with years of experience who you can converse with is invaluable for settling in and gathering info.

Whilst I won't be joining a Morris dancing club anytime soon nor putting a pic of Liz above the fireplace- I am well chuffed and lucky to have such sound English muckers- though it does my head in when some for a laugh attempt an Irish accent!!!!!

A good example of them being sound-when I sent word last week I was returning for a week soon I had two immediate offers to collect me from aport. Didn't need it but was well chuffed as I only know them a short time

On the coal face we are not that different if at all, its those that run the coal face that are different, that's why I always and only drink with people with dirty fingernails.

Right Martin- this is 101% true

In July my cockney mate and another fella were talking about EXACTLY that and they had ordered pies online of that type

They asked me did I wanna try them so I said just put me down for 1. About a week later the consignment of 20 arrived from England.

I at first thought they meant booze ( like Guinness pie?) when they were talking about pie with liquor- it's not it's all to do with..........eels.

Each of us who ordered was also given a bottle of a chilli style vinegar(????) which apparently is used to flavour it

I was told to make mashed potatoes to put on top and then pour this gravyish stuff on it

Confession time-when I cooked it the smell even put me off. I didn't even try it but told them I did but it wasn't for me

Exactly ! filthy dirty stuff, what you should remember whilst we in the north were inventing everything from the industrial revolution to stock markets and such, they were still scavenging the Thames when the tide was out, heathens the lot of them. did I mention Jellied Eels my god !

One thing that I cannot get my head around which my London mate tells me about- is prices there

He was telling me in some places- and I am not talking top end- for a basic cooked breakfast you could pay £15!!!- around £3/4 in Belfast, £8 for a beer and a two bed flat near his cousin in Wimbledon £680k!!!!

Mind blowing
