    Gary V,
    So you have to warn us before dropping a bomb like that. I almost had a caniption. Anyway I understand if you need a BREAK but stopping? My man you have an amazing thing going and You cant go and pull a Barry Sanders on us.

    QOTD: Firm Cherries and I love on a day to day basis here just being able to go out and speak in a completely different language then I was raised in. It gets me pumped each and every day. Oh and WLTV of course

    I don’t discriminate against any kind of cherries.

    QOTD: I love to program, I love to play Ultimate, and I love to drink wine.

    Did you say something about seven episodes? What are you doing next?

    Last week I had the waiter decant a wine out at dinner for the first time. It was a really interesting dinner overall. I picked out a few wines that interested me but they only had one available, the 2001 Lang & Reed Cab. Franc. I really enjoyed the 2002 so I wanted to try the earlier vintage. The first weird thing is that they brought out the 2002 and I actually noticed. I started to reconsider because well we had already tried that wine and I generally like to drink as many different wines as possible rather than drinking the same wine more than once. We decided to open it anyway, but while talking about it I made a comment that the last time we had it we decanted it for three hours. Next thing I knew, we had a decanter and we let it sit for a about 45 minutes while we had some early courses.

    It was a lot of fun. I’m definitely interested in breaking out the decanter at restaurants more often.

    Drink wine is certainly high on the list. Also, I like to read about science, learn new things, and cook and eat good food.

    QOTD: I love my husband and daughter, as well as my extended family. I also love to run a few miles, then do yoga, pour a glass of wine, get a good book and some dark chocolate, an enjoy it in a nice long hot bubble bath!

    I must admit that I pop and pour almost all my wines, but then the next day I’ll have another glass after it’s been open for a few hours then vaccum sealed, and there is a big difference in taste and smell. I am trying to trust my palate and look for specific wines that give flavor profiles that I enjoy, but also trying sooooo many new types that I didn’t even know existed 6 months ago, like the Albarino, thanks to you.

    As for the side question, I love fresh Black Sweet Cherries from the Cherry Capital of the world, Traverse City, Michigan!

    Working my way back to episode one, wishing I had heard of your show sooner. I’ll get there though. It’s funny seeing past episodes where I know “the future”.

    qotd: I like treating myself everyday. I like a good workout, nice reading time for grad school, a trip to the cheese aisle, and definitely the wine aisle after your show.

    Love the rant and I love my own palate. Always nice to go to a wine shop and ask about a type of wine and their first question is someting like “What are you using it for?” or “What do you like?” QOTD: My sense id humor. Its bizzare and at times ALL over the place. I think I would honestly be in a rubber room without it.
