Back in the world of the living

#1 Post by Chineapple punk » July 22nd, 2009, 7:23 pm

Hi everyone,

Just thought I would say a quick hello to everyone as I have not been on the forum for quite a while. I was having a mad final year at uni and starting a new job, so parts of my online life were basically put on hold. However, the studying is finally over and I graduated a few weeks ago...Woohoo!

Going to have a good long scan around all the topics to see what i have been missing. Hope everyone is well!

Hi CP! You've got a lot of catching up to do! Congratulations on graduating :happyclappy:

What's your plans now?

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Thanks all.

Pleased to meet you getreal :smile:

Not much news Nick, it's all been study, study, study for me this past year :(

I've started a new job Alan. Working at John Dewar & Sons in the east end of Glasgow. I'm in the Spirit Quality Analysis lab where I analyse the sensory and chemical properties of their whiskies. it's a dirty job but someone has to do it.

Yeah! Yeah! "Spirit Quality Analysis"? Analysing the 'sensory' properties of whiskies. We all know exactly what you mean. :wink:

Welcome back and congratulations!

Sounds like a great job you've got there... it'd be better if you could taste though!

I have very fond memories of the youth hostel at Ardbeg.
I wonder if it still exsists.

I had no idea there was a whisky named after a youth hostel!

A belated welcome back from me, CP. :wave:


Congrats on degree and job. Now that you're back in the world, I hope you might get along to a Brights meeting sometime and report back to us. They're one of the very few things I miss about living in Glasgow.

Pleased to meet you Hundovir. We get new-make spirit in from Ardbeg occasionally, but it's about 70% ABV at that point, you wouldn't like it.............on second thoughts :)

Hi CP! Good to see you back on the forum. :happyclappy:

I've not been here much recently as work is completely mental just now, but it's good to see you back and I'll just take the opportunity to say hi to everyone, but bear with me as I may disappear again for a few months.

But as Arnie says "I'll be back" :D
