After decades of listening to Red Red Wine by UB40, I learned today that there is a toasted version with a whole lot of lyrics I'd never heard before! 🤩

I'm sure the drinkers here will approve of the lyrics:

[Verse 3: Astro]
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
You keep me rockin' all of the time
Red red wine, you make me feel so grand
I feel a million dollar when you're just in my hand

[Verse 4: Astro]
Red red wine, you make me feel so sad
Any time I see you go, it make me feel bad
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
Monkey pack him Rizla pon the sweet Dep line

[Verse 5: Astro, (Ali Campbell)]
(Red red wine)
Red red wine, you give me whole heap of zing
Whole heap of zing, you make me do my own thing
(It's up to you)
Red red wine, you really know how fi love
Your kind of lovin' like a blessing from above

[Verse 6: Astro]
Red red wine, I loved you right from the start
Right from the start with all of my heart
Red red wine in an eighties style
Red red wine in a modern beat style, yeah

[Bridge 2: Astro and (Ali Campbell)]
(I'd have sworn)
Give me a little time, help me clear up my mind
(That with time)
Give me a little time, help me clear up my mind
(Thoughts of you would leave my head)
Give me red wine, the kind make me feel fine
You make me feel fine all of the time

[Verse 7: Astro]
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
Monkey pack him Rizla pon the sweet Dep line
The line broke, the monkey get choked
Burn bad ganja pon his little rowing boat

[Bridge 3: Astro and (Ali Campbell)]
(Red red wine)
Red red wine, I'm gonna hold on to you
Hold on to you 'cause I know your love true
(Stay close to me)
Red red wine, I'm gonna love you till I die
Love you 'till I die, and that's no lie
(Don't let me be in love)
Red red wine, can't get you off my mind
Wherever you may be, I'll surely find
(It's tearin' apart)
I'll surely find, make no fuss
(My blue, blue heart)
Just stick with us

[Bridge 2: Astro and (Ali Campbell)]
(I'd have sworn)
Give me a little time, help me clear up my mind
(That with time)
Give me a little time, help me clear up my mind
(Thoughts of you would leave my head)
Give me red wine, the kind make me feel fine
You make me feel fine all of the time

[Verse 7: Astro]
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
Monkey pack him Rizla pon the sweet Dep line
The line broke, the monkey get choked
Burn bad ganja pon his little rowing boat

[Verse 8: Astro and (Ali Campbell)]
(Red red wine)
Red red wine, you really know how fi love
Your kind of lovin' like a blessing from above
(Stay close to me)
Red red wine, I loved you right from the start
Right from the start with all of my heart

[Verse 9: Astro and (Ali Campbell)]
(Don't let me be in love)
Red red wine, you give me whole heap of zing
Whole heap of zing, you make me do my own thing
Red red wine in an eighties style
Red red wine in a modern beat style, yeah

[Outro: Astro and (Ali Campbell)]
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
You keep me rockin' all of the time
(Red red wine)
Red red wine, you make me feel so grand
I feel a million dollar when you're just in my hand
(Stay close to me)
Red red wine, you make me feel so sad
Any time I see you go, it make me feel bad
(Don't let me be in love)
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
Monkey pack him Rizla pon the sweet Dep line...,

My daughter made a nice spagbol tonight could have been reduced down a little more but we needed to hit the road - 2hr drive!
I usually make it fairly water with wine, stocks and spices, let it reduce for ages while occasionally adding a bit of milk. But I don't really mind it a bit more watery, sometimes it's nice with the extra sauce.

Never heard this before, my favourite verse is verse 9 because it's incredibly poorly written, must have been plastered..

Red red wine, you give me whole heap of zing
Whole heap of zing, you make me do my own thing
Red red wine in an eighties style
Red red wine in a modern beat style, yeah

We all know the moon is made of cheese, but what about stars? Turns out they're made of ...... Chorizo! 🤣

A CRAFTY French scientist has tricked people into believing a slice of chorizo sausage was a distant star snapped in space.

Étienne Klein, 64, pulled off the trick on Twitter to make people aware of fake news on social media.

What's the result of today's projects? Have you been hydrating enough? Sorely missed here at the bar...
While some attempt to strip...I've just been in the buff 😊

Very disappointed my hollow pin and hollow side plate chain only removed 7g of weight 🤨
I'll be at the bar about midday...going to need a bit of Dutch courage.....time to see how my new brake doodads hold up 🤨 will I stop or will they go 'pop' 😆

Ok, here is my selection for you, @Imlach

From left to right, alcohol free, bitterblond, wheat beer, quadrupel, milkstout, ipa and a Gulpener bio pilsener as a joker, should there be something you don't fancy.

Right ..@imlach....I've found a few other things to tweak like descaling the rims refacing the brake blocks etc....I'm now officially done and can't find anything else to faff about and delay it's maiden flight...so....I'll have two double brandies barman and if you'd be so kind to top up my bottle with that blindness causing/curing hooch..👍
