I have a ton of grading to do. However, I just got a MAJOR deal on a MacBook Air and felt the need to get it set up. I'm not sure how many OS ahead it is from my machine! I'm pretty sure I can update my old one, but I have to do so much cleaning up of multiple pics and additional backing up of things that I just had to get this one. Couldn't pass it up for $200!

Spending our 10th anniversary weekend in a vineyard in Paso Robles. Can't believe we have never been there! Looking forward to it.

There might come a time very soon when I will have to upload some images to the forums. What is the best/easiest way to do that? These images will probably be coming from my computer

I use imgur. And you can copy the link they provide specifically for forum formatting. Works well.

Mods often do that. Otherwise, I think it's just GRAPE within square brackets, like so:

I just can't get into boxing anymore. Hell, Crawford is FROM my hometown and I still don't care. I honestly wonder how boxing PPVs draw so much revenue?

So, does anyone know which Woot Monkey pairs best with each Woot Cellars wine?

Probably Polyphemus with the giant ones, right?

I am missing 10-12 woot wines, mostly the first ones on the list. Willing to trade some more recent offers for older ones.



The only one I am missing is the
2009 Tøøthstejnn The Red, The Grimy Wyvern Wine-Hall Cab Franc
So if anybody has let me know.
I don't have many older ones left, the oldest is probably the Monkey 2nd Prize.

I have not yet looked, but monoprice was touting robot vacuums in their latest email, starting at 100 bucks.

Probably my favourite Woot Cellars to date. I've got a couple left.

We were talking at the Corison gathering about having an all Woot Cellars gathering on of these days. Could we entice you and kttest to come out and join us?

We had a heat wave here - 3 days over 90. Highest was 96 on Thursday, day my wine was delivered. Wine was OK as it came early. Rode my bike early on Thursday for about 18 miles and did 28 miles this morning.

Glad that it will cool off. With highs in low 70's the next several days.
