    I say we reposses our California grapevines. They probably never payed for
    them anyway...

    Good point. Most people don't know that French vineyards were
    destroyed by rot and vine cuttings from California were sent to France
    to re-plant them.

    But you know how it is... we bad Americans never bail out the
    Europeans ;-)

    The way I heard it, the native American grapes, the nasty New England
    ones, were the immune root stock. California was mostly planted with
    true european grapes, on the theory that the nematode was only endemic
    to europe. Wrong! The critters are eating up Napa as we speak, and
    California growers are adapting the european habit of grafting
    varietals onto Concord grape rootstock.

    Interesting bit of trivia!

  14. Never knew it exists. BTW it's called Beaujoleais primeur in this
    surroundings but they say it becomes less interesting. Best wines seem to
    come from South America (Chili) these days. Always sun and controlled water
    supply.

    I don't drink Beaujolais... I find it too weak-kneed, sort of like
    wine-flavored water or mouth wash ;-)

    In reds I prefer wines with considerable "tongue" such as Merlot,
    Cabernet, Zinfandel or Shiraz.

    Not at all,
    Politicians probably deserve some come-uppance,
    but I doubt if they give a nano-dam about wine growers.

    I have no quarrel with French wine growers, they make a fine product.

    Though after the bombing of the rainbow warrior and the Balinese bombings,
    I've always preferred my modest wealth to buy Kiwi and Aussie products.
    Which are respectable choices on their own merits, I might add.

    Let's just boycott politicians. They may have the finest morals that money
    can buy, but they don't seem to be more than parasites.

    Q: Do you know the difference between a connoisseur and a wino?

    A: The connoisseur takes the bottle out of the paper sack.

    AKA Good Seasons' salad dressing

    And what furry little critters you are, too.
    Want to buy some beaver pelts?
    Cough, I thought we were buying them back.

    Frank Zappa, "The Phylloxera Anthem":

    It can't happen here
    I'm telling you, my dear

  20. Notwithstanding you're a little disjointed here, I'd say, make gasohol.

    Reduce the amount of money the poor starving oil companies have to
    spend enriching those nasty arab sultans with all their harems and
    genies and flying carpets and crap. Why should they get all the
    treasure?
