    Only 2 wine corks on the table, so the last cork is in the pumpkin.

    Crud, just noticed the last cork behind the 3rd bottle. I’m revising my guess to say it is the pen he used to sign the book.
    Great Barbera episode, also one of my favorite grapes. Anyone try Barnard Griffin or Desert Hills? Both Washington, both awesome.

    Back from a relapse into lurkerdom!

    As soon as I finish my impending move, I’ll have to grab a bottle of Icardi; haven’t had a Barbera in too long.

    QoTD: Hard to narrow to just one … Twin Peaks, My So-Called Life, The Office (the original U.K. series), and Riget come to mind.

    The is a really tough QOTD… I don’t know if it is my favorite, but one that I can watch over and over is Seinfeld. I was really into sports center as a kid, and that of course has not changed much.

    Sorry about the 1 for 3. I know how pumped you get to tell us about wines we either havent heard of or almost never drink. QOTD: Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Its not even close. There was nothing like it at the time, and still nothing has been like it ( Sorry SNL, you jumped the shark YEARS ago and are quite predictable). The great sketches that ended at any time, the crazy cartoons, the all out randomness of it. Pure brilliance that’s yet to be topped.
