Worry not, Geo - a teensy,weensy glass being sipped delicately with little finger raised. What were you thinking -knocking back a schooner or two ?

Hmm,. A schooner of port sounds delightful actually!  Well done Bobbi!  That's really wonderful and you certainly deserve a little treat.

I'm quite fond of a glass or port myself, Binx.  One of my ex bosses gave all his staff a bottle of vintage port one Christmas which looked beautiful in my crystal decanter (ooh, posh!) but didn't stay in there for long, as you can imagine!  >:D

Well, if the decanter was lead crystal, you wouldn't want to leave the port in it very long at any rate. You were smart to drink it down, gout or not.

And as my great-grandmother (who lived to 95 ) always said "A little of what you fancy does you good !" 
I've made that my mantra, naturally.

Little is the key word here I think.  Unfortunately I usually make it a LOT of whatever I fancy - not so good!

Of course, quantity is relative to the user -- some have bigger capacities than others, and others should not partake at all! Judgment is the key ... and not all of us are blessed with enough of that either ... we're all just human.
