I am now having to post through Google as I have moved and Comcast
doesn't do groups. Best wishes to the group for the season.

Season's greeting to everyone from me, too.

But a quick comment to you about newsgroups. You certainly don't *have
to* post through Google, and I recommend against it. There are many
choices of news servers available to use even if you are a Comcast
customer (as I am too). Some of them are free and others charge for
use. Here's a free one I use and like very much:
news.eternal-september.org

As I write, Andrew is no doubt on the beach, Ian is getting ready, or
gone to bed, Santiago, well just finishing dinner and those of us in
the US are still in daylight scurrying to get the last touches on
things . . .
Merry Christmas (or is that Meri Kirihimete, m'lord?) and Happy new
year to all

Santiago, well just finishing dinner

Nice try, but at 11:08 PST (which is about 20:08 in Spain), we were not
even starting dinner. Actually, nobody dines in Spain before 21:00.

I had a glass of Champagne in my hand (and another inside) at 20:08 so...
cheers to all!

Uhh Satiago I sent it at
NNTP-Posting-Date: Thu, 24 Dec 2009 21:40:33 +0000 (UTC) or at least
that is what I thought and my reader posted.

No problem I tell my clients that when they go to Spain they can
expect any restaurant open at 8pm to have only tourists. It is sort of
the same here exept any restaurant with guests arriving at that time
has only tourists!

Try news.individual.net I have been using it for years.

All the best for the holidays !


All the best to all AFW, for health to you and your families and a year
of interesting wines in 2010 (and the pocketbook to pay for them)!

I second news.individual.net, there's a small fee but the service is
excellent.

cheers,

Ups, I stand corrected. I read your post and there was a quote of
Lawrence's post with the hour which I took for yours. Mis disculpas!

expect any restaurant open at 8pm to have only tourists. It is sort of

When I travel abroad, I feel great having dinner at more european hours
(say 8pm in France, Italy, Portugal, Southern Germany). But when I come
back home, it is so difficult to have dinner (even at home) at 8pm.

When going out here in Spain, I always book for 9pm, or 9:30pm maximum, I
always get better service, more attention by the staff and can get back
home much earlier and sleep much better. And there is also less risk of
being intercept by the alcohol-test police (even if I am more than cautious
when dining out if I have to drive back home).

But it is not uncommon for my compatriots to make reservations at 11pm,
specially on saturdays if there is a football mach on TV.

@mid.individual.net:

My theory, Spain is so "off" its natural time zone (most of the country
is west of Greenwich), that your 9pm is actually closer to a natural
8pm. So in fact, you DO eat earlier than it would seem, in solar terms...


Well, that's an interesting theory. Perhaps we should be in the same hour
as Portugal.

Indeed, hope everyone has enjoyed their holiday so far (no matter the
time zone), and Happy 2010 to all!
