There was a lot of talk on Friday about the announcement of the Government’s Alcohol Strategy. This included a minimum unit price (mup) of 40p a unit of alcohol. This means that those of us that regularly spend £6-£10 on a bottle of wine probably won’t see a price difference due to the mup.

With a number of great bus-themed hits of the past playing annoyingly in my head - a mixture of Flanders and Swann, mawkish late-night Country and Western, and playgroup outings - I was doubtful about how much I would find to enjoy at the Oxford Bus and Morris Motors Museum.

I t is a source of some irritation that the predictive text facility on my mobile phone accepts gr8 as a word (as, I have just learned, does my PC's spellchecker) and yet it rejects what I would call proper' words such as bode and vitriolic.

I am beginning to think that I should, for the sake of the English wine industry, stop visiting our 160-odd vineyards. With every visit I make, I bring with me the sort of weather that can wipe out an entire vintage.
