  • We should all be worried about our use of energy, unless you have a lot more solar than I will.  And I bet you don't.  Mark, those things pictured above are actual rooms, not cabinets.  They can be built however you like, but building with glass like that is not done for practical reasons.  Sure, if it's a cabinet, then you have to make it look ...

  • I mentioned this a while ago, but didn't get around to the post.  We stayed from September to end of December at a condominium in a complex built in the '70s.

  • Okay, I'm back from Mexico.  JD guessed right.  It's a 2008 Lisini BdM.  And it was on sale, because I love to be fruga, but it was still above our floor.  Lisini is traditional, in the $75-90 range, usually. Some of the recent vintages of really good BdM are on sale because everyone is turning to the hyped 2010s. I wanted to "send" something he... Read More

  • Hi, my wife and I received a nice bottle of wine as a wedding present that we've now been cellaring for over 5 years (planning to enjoy on our anniversary in the future when its time, online people suggest to 'hold' still). We've never cellared wine before, but it's been fun to have this special bottle that we're waiting to enjoy together over m... Read More

  • Rimmerman's bombast has been known to turn off more than a few readers, but I've had some success with his offerings in the past. This is one that caught my interest in the past day, because the backstory about Beaujolais is something I've thought for decades. Beaujolais truly is, i believe, the flipside of Burgundy, so without it one's perspect... Read More
