I sometimes find it hard to browse through all this myself. Guess that's why I only peep in the door, now and again.

I occasionally think a dash of brose would do me the power of good while reading... that's brose in the Terry Pratchett sense, not the more common one (that only means porridge)

That could be a good pub name then: The brose and prose, a place to gather for authors and would-be-authors, heartening their brain, their soul and their stomachs...

Didn't Shakespeare write:

A brose by any other name would smell as mouthwatering

(or was that Pratchett?)
