Oh dear oh dear... Doctor was wrong! Alcohol counter-indicated in freezing temperatures. It makes you feel warmer because it encourages flow of blood to the skin, where its heat is lost.

Experimentation suggests that with Amaretto on the rocks milk chocolate flakes work better, done purely in the interest of science..

Heat lost? Sheesh, no probs. Just drink more booze. Problem solved.

Boring, but hey...

No doubt you people are enjoying your sub-zero-degrees spirits in front of roaring log fires and all that, and all is jolly well and good!

But it is actually not well known, and should be, that in situations where stuff could go wrong and suddenly exposure and hypothermia might be on the menu, that alcohol is an absolute no-no.

This is a public service announcement, aimed at helping a handful of people to stay alive. The rest of you... freshen your drinks and get back to the fire

Actually, more alt-thruthing climate deniers, fall victim to hypothermia, for the same reason they point to severe cold and snow in parts of the country where snow either has never ever fallen, or, had snowed many decades ago.

Homeless men, and bozos tend to fall victim to hypothermia related cardiac arrest !

Not quite absolute, I think. Provided the patient is now secure in a warm environment, the very things that make alcohol a no-no in the freezing out-of-doors can be used to hurry blood to the extremities that might otherwise be at the edge of frostbite. I have had it put to me that it's a way to forestall frostbite out of doors, too; but that's untrustworthy, as it's an argument put forth by people whose brains are addled by the cold.

I hadn't realised it was that cool here! 31 forecast for today .

I lose interest in the weather when there is no chance of rain.

My earworm a few days back was I wish they all could be Californian... I'd love to go there. But it would probably make me sing There is a rose in Tamil Salem

Got a bottle of Paul John Indian single malt today from my local M&S.

Didn't expect much but it's pretty good to be honest.
Not exceptional but can stand its ground against scotch whisky in the same price range ( 25 odd GBP)

Since its 46% , I can easily water it down slightly to 40% for even better value

Problem is that it would be probably be cheaper in the UK than in India .
