Lovely, the film clip that is, meaning no insult to Vic. In fact, both the clip and Vic's comment remind me of a short story by Kevin Barry, "Breakfast Wine." It was made into a pretty good short film by the Irish Film Board.

They say it takes just three alcoholics to keep a small bar running in a country town, but what if you've only got two?

Hrrmmph! It says "You need to upgrade your Flash Player." As I upgraded it only yesterday, I am not impressed … I can only imagine they've been at the Jamieson too long!
