If you get to Raffles Hotel in Singapore, can you ask if they have a tripod in lost property from 1970 please.

Cava is far superior to Proseeco.. It is Spanish. The Spanish make more sparkling wine then any other country. I rank a good Cava (which is most of them) alongside a good Champagne.

I was a Wine Merchant (Importer) for over fifteen years.

Ahhh my bad ..... wine ey .... I thought you meant Kava ... you'd really have been exotic then.
That's why I mentioned tasting like dirt & lips & tongue going numb.
