I wondered what would happen when Gangnam Style hit 2147483647 views on YouTube. It finally happened, and it crashed the video counter.

In other news, I'll be doing a roadtrip for a good cause . I'll be going to the far West of Aragon .

There's a spoiler. It's only 200 km (sorry, 125 miles) from me .

Actually, only Waitros and M&S sell them in quite high prices, relatively 23 pounds for 1/2 litre of 9 year old Aszu 5 and 27 for 13 year old Aszu4. It was also available in Morrisons until recently in really good price (17 pounds) but I think I was only person buying it, so they cut the price by 3 and sold it out.

Well, to be at least a little on topic, it's probably worth to mention that Tokaj region is divided by Slovak-Hungarian (formerly Czechoslovak - Hungarian border demarcated after treaty of Trianon) border and both sides have rights to produce Tokaj, called alsoTokajské.
The Italian region of Friuli used to produce a white wine called Tocai, that is pronunciated like the Hungarian Tokaj but it wasn't related to it. Hungary sued Italy at the European Court of Justice because the name of the Italian wine was too similar to their and it sounded like a violation of trademark Since then, we were forced to rename the Tocai in Friulano on bottle labels. Because, according to some, a name that had been in use for centuries only because it's coincidentially similar to another, it's a serious danger for their businesses
Meanwhile, in Canada they produce a ham called San Daniele (imitation of the famous San Daniele DOP from Italy) and we can't do nothing.

we will see, it's been big debate in Canada because of CEUTA free-trade agreement (I hope it passes, I want to save 2.5% import duty on my next Audi A5 or BMW )

They even sell "greek yogourt" but it is made domestically. I think it is already agreed the Canadians will put some kind of modification to meet the EU protected origin rules... but still no free market for dairy products (Canada lives under communism for dairy goods )

Free trade with a small Spanish enclave on the north coast of Africa?

Ahem. I apologize.

So I see from the e-mails I'm catching up on that the Black Friday concept (in English, yet) has spread to France and other places....

In Europe they already collected over a million of signatures against the free trade agreement with USA and Canada. The argument is that North America has less severe laws concerning food safety (i.e. they allow GMOs and wash chicken meat with bleach).

I haven't had an Advent calendar since I was a wee little thing. Not sure they're that widely known here.

Think I saw some at Ikea about a month ago.

there was an issue with your prosecco and our prošek you have been complaining, but we succeeded to keep our name. furthermore, those two products are not even close to each other, one it sparkling wine, the other one is wine liqueur or dessert wine.

on the other hand, i was astonished when after joining EU we couldn't declare as marmalade anything except citrus made marmalade. the other's are declared as jam now, what is absolutely wrong imo.

Linguistically is perfectly correct. Marmalade: citrus, jam: anything else. Also my English teacher at high school used to say that.
