I have noticed of late that the club has been singled out by the nosy media as being an establishment where too much drinking takes place. Who is to say what is too much and what is not? The criticism is especially rich coming from so-called social commentators, several of whom I know for a fact have not drawn a sober breath in years. Bah!

We reluctantly booked our family into the boutique hotel across the street from our so far uninhabitable home 10 storeys up.
