For me any dinner with strangers always has an element of work attached to it because I am still watching/listening to their reactions to learn as much as I can. Great work if you can get it.

There must be something about having been born post 1975 that enables one to automatically understand the capabilities and working of all of the new technology that makes our lives so effortless. Unfortunately I was born much before that so have to rely on my sons and our web/technology queen who keeps us up and running. Last year for Christmas I bought myself a flat screen tv and an Ipod. I then told my sons that what I wanted from them for Christmas was to put it all together and then VERY PATIENTLY teach me how to use them (When they had left for college I had to call them for the first two months to walk me through getting a DVD to run). So, I am happy to report that I have now learned how to post a blog from my handheld and you will hear from me a lot more often>

Lots of controversy about the 'details'. Is it factual? Partly. Is it Hollywood? Absolutely. Is it wonderful? We sure think so. Go see it and tell us what you think too. Thrace

PLEASE don't say:
"What is your best wine?"
"Did you bring anything good?"
"What is your favorite wine?"
"Do you have any white zinfandel?"
"Go ahead and fill up my glass so I don't have to keep coming back."
"Can I have a bottle?"
"I've never heard of you." (we've never heard of you either)
don't wear perfume/cologne
If you are spitting please do it close to the bucket so our literature isn't splashed
don't leave your dirty dishes on our table
don't talk on your cell phone at our table
listen to your friends when they tell you that you've had enough
You must have a list of the things that vintners do while pouring that bother you as well. Let us know what they are.
