Thought this posting head might attract some attention. I am not dissing the FH just sharing info on Toby's other interest. He has a French wine importing business which looks quite interesting to his fellow plonkers. By the way, the term "plonk" for wine comes from British soldiers in the Great War. In the shorthand way of Tommies, they began to refer to the cheap "vin blanc" they found in estaminets, bars, behind the lines as "plonk".

And a rare photo that accompanied Dick's reporting still survives.
