Cheese rolling

This saddens me. A cheese rolling contest has been cancelled this year. They hope to do it in 2019. We English like doing odd things and it would be sad if this tradition died out. It has been held in the Cambridgeshire village of Stilton for 50 years.

First whisky in a very long time

Since my cerebellum brain bleed (Sept 2013) I have not been allowed to drink alcohol until shortly before Christmas. I used to enjoy red wine (in moderation) but now it tastes sharp and unpleasant. This week I have again been enjoying a little bread and cheddar at night, so this evening I tried, for the first time since Sept 2013, a very small glass of whisky. Although it went down OK, it was not pleasurable.  Maybe the pleasure will return with time.  At the moment I get very little pleasure drinking alcohol. Perhaps this is a good thing?
