Somebody should be leading the surviving two corgis on leashes behind the casket.  Like Edward VII had his dog following his riderless horse with the boots backwards. 

I have it on good authority that drinking Canadian beer gives the royal corgis the *censored*s.

I have good authority that corgis drinking American beer will only stop being thirsty.

I do have opinions on gin, but seeing as they are mostly small UK distillery opinions they won't translate well to your side of the pond. My greatest disappointment gin-wise was finding out that Bombay Saphire wasn't actually blue - it was just the bottle (otherwise its quite a nice gin).

Are you anti-Beefeater?

We have some good gins over here. The difference between good gin and bad gin is quite startling.

Don't be disrespectful. They had the grandchildren on a vigil yesterday, without a leash. Why would the corgis need one?

I thought the pets of royalty got buried with them?

LOL.  Finally a real debate. 

Dude roller blades right out in front of the King's Rolls two days ago.  Get's tackle slammed by 5-6 Bobbies and zip tied up.  Accusations of thuggery and fascism abound, lol. 

And get this, they let the guy go.

BBC Commentator referred to CAPRI as "Jill Biden", not "Dr Jill Biden". 

Wars have begun that way, Mr. Beebs.

Best funeral.  Top notch.

The only thing would have made it better is if they had shot her out of a photon torpedo tube into a solar orbit and next episode she is revived by science in the 31st century and 25 years old again to fight Space Russians who have genetically engineered Serpentor using the DNA of Stalin, Lenin, Lennon, Pooter, Tarasov, and Malkovich.

No I'm not - to be honest I've never tasted it - I've tasted and liked (in the established brands) Tanquary, Bombay Saphire, Hendricks.  Gordons is what I grew up on & is bland but usable as a mixer.

Just to be clear I wasn't suggesting that the States/Canada don't have worthwhile gins - the practice of dumping herbs into pure alcohol is pretty much universal and some of the results are really nice, others are interesting but odd, others will just get you drunk and aren't so bad after the 4th glass. My statement was meant to say that telling you about the locally infused gin I picked up in a small shop near Hadrians Wall that was very strong in elderflower would be fairly pointless as you couldn't get it.  The current fashion for gin means that every hamlet now has its own local selection.

Temptation to go on a gin tour of the UK rising...

Hyper-local booze is good but frustrating when trading recommendations online :P
