Re: Online security, trojans, viruses, malware, etc

Re: The Speakeasy

As elderflower cordial is currently simmering on my stove, I'd be happy to offer Jaywhat some with sparkling water :) - although I like it with gin :innocence: Sadly too refreshing in today's weather though, so does your island malt collection extend to Talisker? If so, a large one please, with some...
