Re: In tribute to Joe Ackroyd

Unfortunately people tend to believe what someone tells them more than they believe their ears. I say 'unfortunately' but it's the difference between working and busking for me. Well the best solution is to not try to hold on to the old ways. If in all your time in the industry you have created ski...

Re: In tribute to Joe Ackroyd

Well I had a long chat with him when I visited his works in about 1997, and I am relaying what he conveyed to me.

Re: TFS

Well not my experience, coming as I do from Braemar in the Highlands. Had a nice clean steady supply there, and little or no dc offset from industry! Ah! hydro electric power, the sweetest and nicest tasting :mrgreen: If Scottish highland water makes such good whisky then it must make good 'lecky :...
