Lost in Translation: Chapter 37

We have received a very nice 'flat-warming' present - a multi-purpose jug with a lid. Quite nice and very useful, about 1 litre capacity, country of origin unknown. The well-intentioned manufacturers have put a couple of mottos on the jug which are meant to cheer a fellow up but, as occasionally happens when translating from one language to another, the message is just a tad puzzling - but you kind of get the drift:
'Dream Friendship is packed in the bottle of wine, distribution of the deep feelings'; and
'Dream Wish bring distant friends, everything satisfactory, following joyfully'.
