Labor Day 2015

The blog is mostly off today for the holiday, but will return on Tuesday with our usual features, including the Wine Curmudgeon’s annual visit to the Kerrville Fall Music Festival and an update on my El Centro wine class.

Until then, Linda Ronstadt from 1978’s “FM” — not much of a movie, but a reminder about why we once bought Ronstadt’s records not only for the music, but for the cover photos. Those of us who whine about how difficult our lives are should think about Ronstadt. And yes, that’s Martin Mull introducing Ronstadt and the incomparable Waddy Wachtel on lead guitar.

Memorial Day 2015

The blog is off today for the holiday, but will return tomorrow with our usual features. Until then, enjoy this 1964 episode of The Avengers TV series, where John Sneed executes perhaps the best spit I’ve ever seen (and certainly better than I can do); Mrs. Peel looks ravishing, despite a poor choice in hair styles; and they deflate a couple of wine snobs who badly need deflating. The video is courtesy of Hudson Winter via YouTube.

Great quotes in wine history: Kojak

great quotes

New York City police detective Theo Kojak is very excited — or at least as excited as he gets — about the 2015 $10 Wine Hall of Fame.

A tip o’ the Wine Curmudgeon’s fedora to the Dedoimedo website; this post is based on his “My reaction to — ” series. The video is courtesy of davedacunt via YouTube.
