    It might be more fun if we turn Grot's storage building/locker/bunker into a our bunkhouse for the weekend: By the end of the weekend we can say we've played almost every Guild ever built.

    Of course we'll have to be blindfolded or sedated (or both) for the trip to and from.

    I've been to the Museum and I'm not sure how much would have to be moved to allow even one person to stretch out. :-)

    Hmmm, must give this whiskey a good taste testing!

    Modelo Negro is yummy. It gets the stamp of approval too from my English/Scots cousins.

    And would you believe there's a thriving collector's market for these classic little brown jugs?
    Corks and tax stamps intact bring premiums of course.
