Cold sores are NOT healed by the regular application of cold tea bags to the affected area, by the way. Just thought I'd mention it. Whisky seems to work well (cask strength preferably) both internally and externally.
Meanwhile, we're all getting geared up for the gig next Friday at Eshaness Hall, the cosiest in Shetland, (go on, fly in for it; there's space to land several helicopters) with JOHNNIE AND THE NOTIONS, MALACHY TALLACK, THE PEERIE HILLSWICK LASSES and the experimental VINYL CHOICE, in which folk will be able to have their long-unheard LPs and 45s played for a small donation.
It's all in aid of the CATS ct scanner appeal, which you can find out more about HERE.
