Coeliac and Secret Passages.




Things I learnt from a google chat with my brother in law today:


  • The price of a Savile Row suit. 
  • That a good pair of shoes should, in theory, last one a lifetime. 
  • That there is an off license in Mayfair that shares a secret passageway with Buckingham Palace, so when the queen runs out of booze no one need step outside. 
  • That coeliac disease is more common among the those of Irish heritage. 

What did you learn today?
