What a cracking good image for New Year's Eve, Herman Smile
A very timely reminder to all those naughty people who take to the drink at any excuse.
May they suffer from hell and brimstone - oh, and red eyes tomorrow morning.. Wink

Have one for me chaps - and chapesses Blush
With plenty of water in-between Wink
