    Depends on how far you have to drive back to work! (joke)

    more than 1 makes me fall asleep in the afternoon so thats the most I ever have
    suppose it really depends on what you do, if your a school bus driver.......

    Also depends what you're driving.....you can can be sure some public minded citizen will be on the 'phone to plod if you were spotted pulling into pub car park in 355 and leaving after 2 pints !

    I agree with this answer. Surely in today's safety concious world the question should not have to be asked.

    If your driving - maybe one, maybe.. but if your not, then as many as you feel like given the occasion or afternoon agenda, hell man, if you have nothing pressing in the afternoon make it an all day lunch.

    You guys!!

    I left my apartment here this morning, as the lawn crew started to work around the place. I ran over two empty "tall boys" they had drained... for breakfast!!!!!

    And they had power tools. Weed whackers!

    We have to wait 'till 5:00PM here.

    It's interesting the difference in attitude in general between US and UK over drinking at lunchtime.My US colleagues would never consider a beer over lunch, while for us , it's not a big deal..........

    Well, at the top, there's the big boys, who have a few drinks, a fat rail off the mirror, and a high end call girl at lunch! Enron wasn't the only firm in town!

    Then there's the working blokes like me, who 8AM to 5PM it, just trying to make the bills! And maybe tune the 308 once in a while.

    Then there's the surfers on the beach, who don't have the bills or the car.
    They could have a cold one if they want, but only outside city limits!
    Don't be seen, close to mum and the kiddies!

    Please understand, the reason for all the regs is the damage that's been done by all those who didn't know when to PUT IT DOWN! I barely fell on this side of the fence there, myself. "Quadrophenia" generation and all.....

    I'm still drumming, Kieth Moon is not...........

    I agree in part... I prefer "lunch is for whimps - unless the other guy is paying"

    And don't forget the RODEO next week!

    Trailriders are headed this way, for a three day BBQ Cookoff.

    Out there, they'll start tippling at breakfast. Pace yourself boys!
