Went to the pub tonight for dinner.  Was standing at the bar talking to barman and random man who was part of a group  of about twelve.   We were making small talk about yesterday's big fire and I made the commet that 'thank god for the cfa.  I'd like to buy them all a beer'.  Barman started laughing and said 'these guys are the cfa!'.

I was just lucky that I was at our local.  If I'd been at the other pub that caters for the tourists I'd have had to take out a mortgage to buy a dozen beers!
