I have suddenly become a gambler...

Hi all...

Well I bought some raffle _tickets_ to win some 'sticky bits', LOL!

I have no idea what 'sticky bits' are but they cost me several thousand bits, making me now a gambler extraordinaire.
If I win, those 'sticky bits', whatever they are had better be worth it... ;oDDD

Anyhow I will have a port and brandy in hand waiting for the _PRIZE_ draw... ;oDDD

Is port and brandy the right combination?

In german there is the proverbial "Sekt oder Selters" (champagne or water) which has about the same meaning as the english phrase "make or break" - you go for either full win or full loss. But brandy and port? This is more like "i go for either a win or another win", no?

Fully agree with that philosophy, except it should be "Single Malt" to celebrate a win or "Single Malt" to make me feel better about the result!
