Kev says "This is another one of those weird English things, a lot of petrol stations are like mini supermarkets now, but you can't buy beer there." I was a little surprised ... but at the petrol stations in Louisiana .... you can buy groceries, smokes, chaws, beer, wine, whiskey, vodka, rum, and pretty much anything else you can drink!! ..... maybe that's why their State motto is "Sportsman's Paradise"? [Most of the other US States have State-licensed and/or State-run stores for selling the more potent spirits .... but not Louisiana! .... Yet another reason to be careful when driving over to 'NawLins! (....driving through Vidor is yet another reason - but we'll save everyone a hundred IQ points and not go there!)] Ron L.
