I think the Lady meant it was not a good drink for the liver and your health ....otherwise its a good drink! What makes you assume that? Even if your guess is right (which I suspect it isn't) does it matter what Tweet Tweet's reason is for condemning the stuff with a sweeping. "..........It is...

Re: Any advice on starting a business in Crete?
