    SO far the workweek has sucked, and it's only gonna get worse until thursday. I worked my arse off on a commercial service today and got it all setup and then right near the end I leak checked the pipe and found a real good leak on a high pressure union which I couldn't get stopped. So now I have to go back tomorrwo morning and who knows what I'll havr to do to fix it up.

    Then I have to go dig in a new subdivision where the ground is glacial silt and is like concrete in the middle of the summer, let alone in the middle of winter when we've got 6 feet of frost in the ground.

    So since I'nm so full of self pity I'm drinking some of my home made wine ewith my wife tonight, and I'm really enjoying it/forums/images/icons/wink.gif.

    Who else like red wine? Or should I say red 'whine"...LOL!!!!

    Enjoy your w(h)ine and wallowing in self pity...sounds like you deserve a night of determined inebriation. Of course having to do the dreaded 'fix' tomorrow nursing a red w(h)ine hangover might not be too much fun either...

    Poooooor Paulie!!! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Well tell some of them then!!! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif


    My favorite is Strawberry Hill by the bottle /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    Btw, since Michelle really likes wine, i've been drinking the real stuff a little, and the taste has really grown on me. Now we buy it by the box. Gotta learn to home make it.

    I have been hitting the bottle pretty frequently lately. I have been enjoying everything out of California for the 1997 year. It is really incredible how good that year turned out. It is a bit spendy though, but I work my ass off and deserve it. I would recommend the 1997 Ridge blend...Cabernet

    97 was an awesome year! Hard to find a CA red that was bad. I think '99's doing pretty well too (not as good as 97, but not bad). Had a 99 Murphy-Goode recently, just got a 99 Honig that I've heard is pretty good.

    BTW, I had a couple bottles of 97 Camus cab over the last year or so. Yummy. I think the 2000 Camus cab and later is overrated, so looking for something in a 99 that's as big and complex. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I can't get into red wines.
    Whem I order a white wine, they bring it in a bucket with ice. Chilled slightly, but not cold. That's pretty good.
    When we've ordered a red, it's always room temperature. Not even slightly cool. Yuk. I don't drink anything room tremperature. Coffee should be hot, Coke and Beer should be cold, and I think wine should at least be cool.
    I don't get it.

    I had the fetzer 97 last night and was pretty impressed. Not as expensive as most 97's and not as big but pretty tasty...

    Yep, I've had the Fetzer. Liked it. I agree, very good for the money.

    I recently bought a 99 Smoking Loon, very good value.

    A client sent me a bottle of Fat Bastard for Christmas. Haven't tried it yet, but it's going to be the white of choice at my next dinner party!

    As long as it tastes good and doesn't cost over 5 bucks a bottle, I'm game.
