I pick up Oxy and Spoon in Dijon and we then drive to Bouilland where we check-in the Hotel du Vieux Moulin that also has a 1 star Michelin Restaurant (fantastic dinner btw).

The marvellous dandelion wine I was one of the few if not the only one to admire Andrew for.

That was the last glass so it was supposed to have been emptied by that time. It was Wormwood Blanche and it has pushed my consciousness too far; anyway although it has killed me, I really appreciate Nico for opening it especially for me.

Great pics Super Frog!

Well.. it was really tasty biggrin.gif
Another Absinthe or any other Alcoholic Beverage would have killed me then in a split of a second!
Jaded Prole

Really?

So does that mean some new, old equipment?!

Fishing for still porn again?
Steve
Great pics, Marc! It was fantastic. I will try to post some pics tomorrow night. The first thing I did when I arrived home was to brick my iPhone so I've been dealing with that instead of getting the pics from my camera. I woke up after a couple hours sleep and tried some more, it seems to be finally coming back from the dead.

Again, I can't thank Oxy and Socky enough. Pics to come…
Steve
I added a photo album on facebook. I seem to have taken shockingly fee photos. I guess I was too busy having a good time. I think everyone should be able to see the album (at least for now). Let me know if you can't see it.
Steve
If there is any photo of you that you would like removed for any reason, please tell me and I will remove it at once! Thanks!

Maybe the one where I am holding two glasses? I look like an alcoholic. Nah, just joking. Really moderate pics, Spoon, really shock.gif

Nothing new, just transfering the existing ones.
