Re: Recession?What recession???

The economic system is fueled by consuming as much product in the shortest possible time. Most new goods either have built in obsolescence or perceived obsolescence so it will need replacing either because it is no longer fit for purpose or has been superseded by a new alledgedly improved model.

Badger Brewery brew Golden Glory which is peach flavoured and is lovely and refreshing. In fact it refreshes parts that other beers can't reach.
