Just read one of those silly little emails which amuse me. Message is that if you find reading about how much damage drinking does to your health, its best to stop reading. My favorite of this 'genre' (a word that seems to have slipped out of fashion) is about the foursome of roughish county lads expressing their frustration on the 18th green in vivid Ramsey-esque terms. The 18th was immediately below the clubhouse terrace, which happened to be occupied this day by several delicate ladies, taking tea from equally delicate cups. They felt there was no option but to complain to the club 'committee' - which considered the matter carefully, before coming to the only reasonable conclusion. They banned ladies from the terrace.
