    recently iv been invited along to my local chamber -to the annual wine tasting event

    im wary

    have any of you gone along/joined one of these if so what is the real cost? iv always assumed its a case of "you scratch my back i will scratch yours,

    perhaps literally!"


    , pass me that bottle and that leg of lamb while youre at it , bottoms up !

    Sounds like it might be a cake and **** party mate. Not sure I would want to be there as a window cleaner.

    I used to go to chamber of commerce meetings in my old life and did not enjoy them in the slightest. They were so far up their own ar*es and felt like I was back at school.........but each area will be different mate and if you've been invited then they must have some reason for wanting you there e.g new builds / developments, job opportunities etc etc

    i recently turned down flat work on a big local developement a conversion. its possible this wine tasting invite is his/her miss bigwigs hoping i might change my mind once the drinks flowing

    missus wants to go,typical wino, i think she can go on her own,

    perhaps i will "break my toe" half an hour before due to leave , then sit and watch old n great sweeney vids ;) on my own with a beer


    yeh,-- paint the toe black before i "fall" down the steps
