Meanwhile at my house, not so bad. Yet...



We didn't get hit so bad here in South Dakota, but I'm trying to get some trains through Nebraska (for work, obviously) and the railroads are basically laughing at me. Seems a train got tipped over (thankfully not one of ours) and everything's a mess down there. I saw photos of the hail - that was quite a storm.

I started out on Burgundy but soon hit the harder stuff. Bob Dylan, Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues

How on earth did I get 7 QPs?

That's pretty close to Southlake, no?
Yeah, a tour would be great!

Ehhhhhh, by Texas standards, yes but it's probably a 20-25 minute drive.

PM me a day/time. I'll have to get one of my coworkers to help since I can't get into all areas.

Seriously? 20-25 minute drive is nothing in LA.


And one of these days, I'll make it out there!

We had it five years ago here. It's crazy, and when it hits the street it doesn't shatter, it compresses like a hockey puck.

The Ublinks are in that general area, IIRC.

Why bother having a Computers! page if you are going to keep putting them on the Woot! page?

It's so aggravating when they do that (and put Wine! stuff up on Home! or Woot! as well)!

And perhaps he can ask the Ubliinks and zmanonice to check in on the RPM Tour thread?

The philosophy is that the woot home page is reserved for the best deal across all sites. And home woot is perfect for all the non wine stuff that we see here in Thursdays. I'm not sure what you are complaining about.

Wine.Woot Plus offers, duh!

Plus it seems that the Woot! page always has too many Plus offers on it.

Edit: Really? Best deal? I've yet to see anything on Woot! that wasn't the same price on the other pages, except for Sellout!, since that's the last place they go.

Edit2: And you can kiss tasting those older PS's away.

Woot is not a category. We put the best deals of the day on Woot.

Home includes kitchen and tabletop stuff. That includes wine glasses, wine openers, and other barware.

WD sources ALL sales for Wine.Woot. He puts up things he thinks you guys will like.

Again, how can it be the best deal when it's the same price every where on Woot! sites??

I could understand if it's a special one time offer, but it's the same price!

Just because the price doesn't change doesn't mean it's not a good deal.

Unexpected and greatly appreciated.
One of the graduates is nicknamed monkey, and she'll now have a screamer.

And I got to meet the photo wizardress in her lair as well.

Pretty impressive what the group of folks here accomplish with the staff they have.

Thanks all!

$100 for couples plus a signed magnum. $50 for individuals with a signed Reserve bottle. Discounts for Wine Club members.

I gave up trying to resist this party. Room and car booked. Still have to jiggle flights. If you're interested, you'll have to sign up soon. Carla said yesterday that it's about 90% booked.
