It is very strange, this domination of our intellect by our digestive organs. We cannot work, we cannot think, unless our stomach wills so. It dictates to us our emotions, our passions. After eggs and bacon it says, “Work!” After beefsteak and porter, it says, “Sleep!” After a cup of tea (two spoonfuls for each cup, and don’t let it stand for more than three minutes), it says to the brain, “Now rise, and show your strength. Be eloquent, and deep, and tender; see, with a clear eye, into Nature, and into life: spread your white wings of quivering thought, and soar, a god-like spirit, over the whirling world beneath you, up through long lanes of flaming stars to the gates of eternity! – JEROME K JEROME
This quote by Jerome K Jerome describes how I wish to proceed with this venture. I wish to focus mainly on food, drink and merriment. The first couple of posts will be introductory posts, just me settling in.
I am open to suggestions in line with the themes mentioned. If there is a wine, a venue or a particular feature you would like to see here, then let me know. Companies wishing to market themselves or to be reviewed here, can do the same.
So, until the time comes when we will be denied anything enjoyable and wholesome, let us cling to every second, passionately.
