Re: The Longest Boat Sale In History

Congrats, FW... Arf... the "May-two-for" (actually the 21st this year) is a May Monday statuatory holiday that, while celebrating beer is the practice of most, is actually the anniversary of Queen Victoria's birth. Kinda like your Presidents' Days, but we only get the one per year.

But rumour has it that the olde Queen Vicky enjoyed her brew.....
