Ah, but are you willing to include beverages for those who are *still* Anglican? ;D And in the non "adult" line what about tea and coffee?cleveland said:I would vote for a nice Single Malt, or Guinness... and maybe Port, for my friend the former Anglican...
British East India Company it was. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š See here for a bit on the start of it: http://www.loyno.edu/history/journal/1993-4/Godat.htmlcleveland said:Why not include other beverages... do we have wide enough support for sake?
As far as the non-adult line, why not tea and coffee... is it being brought to us by the East India Trading Company (that was the name, right)?
Well, let's not get drunk on the power.. ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š ;DIf only the two or three of us are making suggestions, then I guess whatever we want could be on the list..

I don't know about most important, but it makes it clear where it came from.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š Recall that the Dutch were also building a trading empire in Asia.cleveland said:Oh, and thanks for the British East India bit... I had forgotten the most important part of the name, no?
Some Asian delights yes, but not sake. I can think of 2 reasons right off the batI wonder, did they trade in sake and other Asian delights, bringing them to the Isles with them?
Very true...Ebor said:I don't know about most important, but it makes it clear where it came from.ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡ Recall that the Dutch were also building a trading empire in Asia.
I didn't know that sake doesn't do well on travel...Ebor said:Some Asian delights yes, but not sake. I can think of 2 reasons right off the bat
1) Sake does not travel well when we're talking of months and months of ship board travel
2) After various tangles and dealings with the Spanish and Portuguese and the first introduction of Christianity in Japan amoung other things, the Shogun Tokugawa Iemitsu established the policy of Sakoku in which the country was closed off from any outside dealings with any country except China and Holland, and even that was to a very limited degree.
It you don't stop me, I will continue to go on about Japan.. Beware!
