  Benzol: <fgh> Isn't mead a fermented drink made from honey.
Jul-13-05  aw1988: *roar of approval*
Jul-13-05  fgh: Well, we all know my english vocabulary isn't that extensive :-) Thanks <Benzol>.
Jul-14-05  Knight13: <Not to mention he lost his only game> Not to mention if you played Morphy you would lose, too.
Jul-14-05  howardtheduck: I was wondering what it was, it is hydromel... well, it can be very good... as a beverage
Jul-14-05  jamesmaskell: Mead is an alcoholic drink. On a birthday celebration some 2 1/2 years ago I drank some mead (orange and warm) then went clubbing. I got 2 hours sleep that night and I had an A Level Law exam the next day! I felt so bad.

  TheAlchemist: Mead is quite good, but it's advisable not to have too much of it. :-)
Jul-14-05  jamesmaskell: The worst thing was that I was just drinking it out of a a large plastic bottle. Lots of effort with presentation obviously! I could have got some nasty cold sores or worse.
