Ah, you know the feeling - you're doing your shopping, picking up some basic provisions and before you know it you've spent all your money on booze. You didn't intend to buy all those bottles of wine and you have no idea why you have two slabs of cheap beer in the back of your car. All you wanted was to get a few things for dinner but there in front of you, impervious to your resistance, was the booze aisle and when we see booze, we just have to buy it, don't we?

If only someone would remove such evil temptations from our sight. If only there were some people out there who are much smarter than us oiks to save us from ourselves.

But wait! What's that noise I hear in the background? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Um, not quite. It is Frances Black (pictured above) and she will save us all!
