Are you hooked on anything, apart from watches?

I have always loved curries. In fact I still have at least two a week. Usually cooked by yours truly.

Lately though, I can't seem to get enough roll mops. Not plain pickled herrings bur proper roll mops.

Vintage hats, quality footwear, bespoke tailoring, silk scarves, pocket squares, and bicycles. 

My long term motorcycle addiction took a dive after my close pal got wiped out, still got one bike though.

Ugh . There is a jar in my fridge you can have. Partner bought them for me thinking they were a suitible substitute for anchovies.

I've always been hooked on cheese and charcuterie. Bought 30 quid of the stuff at the market on Saturday :) got a whole pork tenderloin cured with fennel as well as some mulled wine salami, salami with blue cheese, and absurdly spicy chorizo with cheddar.

That and jerky. Now there is some money in the bank i need to crack out the dehydrator. Tempted to buy a 9 tray Excalibur

Yes please. The longer pickled the better.:biggrin:. Oh yeah, cheese. The stronger the better.

I also like yogurt  but it must be plain. Can't stand that baby fruit stuff.

I thought this went in the "open forum".

ETA........Oh it is. I just got lost in the forums

Apart from watches ?

Hmm......clocks, pocket watches, barometers, watchmakers workshops, horology books, museum's.

Quite a diverse range of interests me thinks. :yes:

 

P.S. I'm told by others, an attraction to strange attire ?

I don't find your attire strange I think its eloquent, takes me back to Scott Fitzgerald. And images of dust bowls - while the great and the good enjoyed RR roadsters with 2 screens and all in third person by Nick. 

In case of confusion via the narrative (sir) Image result for scott fitzgerald great gatsby

Sorry I meant first person of course - spent to much time defending third parties. The 'spats' are what keep us going. 

I must add on a purely factual point your guidance re-old mechanical was correct.
