    One has a Mr Mocas turning up for a cup of rosie lee (One gathers this is what they call it) soon and one wondered what the collective wisdom of the board should be as to the appropriate tea to serve? Mug? One does feel the obligation to put him at his ease, but obviously one wouldn't wish to go too far. Would it appear too wrong to make a separate pot for oneself?

    Watch he may try to claim diplomatic immunity if he thinks homeland security are still after him. I hear that the Ecuadorian embassy is full up at the moment although a vacancy may be in the offing. Perhaps a little Camomile might sooth any frayed nerves ---it's hard being on Interpols most wanted list.;)

    I'd not thought of that, Graeme. I was more worried about him sizing up the car fleet for scrap, but vigilance shall be my watchword.

    He drives a Skoda, that makes him one of the Common People. So a can of Stella will do.

    Please pass on my warmest regards to Mr Mocas as he is sorely missed by many on this Forum. He added an air of sanity amongst the perpetually deranged and warring masses who seem to believe this place is where one comes to vent one's spleen.

    I would suggest that you send a manservant to Harrods immediately and direct him to purchase a fine darjeeling post haste. Altertnative would be a mug of Builders just like wot the lower classes sup!

    How do we know it is even the real MOCAS as he has so many imposters and lookalikes?

    I would expect he will bring his chai wallah with him to ensure standards are met? :)

    I'd offer him Peroni if the SLK was his only car.

    We intrepid Allard owners stick to a pint of ale. None of this Italian exotica!

    On a practical note , you could get in a Twinings tea variety pack and let him select to his preference .

    On the other hand , knowing your reputation as a connoisseur of fine wine , won't he be anticipating a glass of something rather nice ?
