Coyne--got your email. May make you open a bottle of this one when you pick it up.



When you pick it up, open up the box and pop one in the fridge. Always happy to share a bottle!

I had a battered and fried burger today. It was good. Had bacon and an egg on it.

Would love to know what the before/after cholesterol looked like.

Just picked up 2007 Kronos for $70.

Edit: like Cory said above.

Double edit: Just ordered a 2004 Kronos from another store for the same price. We'll see if the order gets filled, and if it does, what they actually (try to) give me. Cory and I ordered 2005s but got 2007s.

Nowhere any more. We bought 'em out. They were at Total Wine. First rule of deal hunting: buy yours first. Share info later.

I ordered 2x 2005 regular Corison Cab from TW in Redondo, also at $60. No Kronos there, but if you or Cory have an extra bottle of (any vintage) Kronos for $70 I'll happily alleviate your need to store it.

Oooo, sorry. I forgot that zTimBz was there that weekend. It was cold even for us!

Just got back from Stratford. Yesterday wasn't too bad. Today was a bit nippy. On our way to breakfast, the wind was really whipping around and made my eyes water. Had a great time though. Cymbeline was phenomenal!

if anyone's looking for some deals on older corison cabs.
Amazon has some listed through JJ Buckley. I'm not sure what shipping costs are but I saw an 89' corison cab for 49.99 and a 96' for 69.99.

edit: whoops the 89's out of stock.

Sparky, got your answer. A step was missed in the cancelation process. See PM.

Momma, she's still in the emergency hospital being pumped full of fluids, pain meds, and antibiotics. This is to tread her pancreatitis. Her liver and kidneys are also failing. It's all caused by chicken jerky from China. You can google that and read the stories and FDA warning (no recalls).

I should be able to bring her home tonight.

Once I realized I'd eventually get there it's been more like trying to *not* order wine to stall my black square's arrival. A couple recent nice shirt.woots have helped push me, too.

mommadeb1 wrote:I think you are the exception to the rule if you try to stay close to your schedule!! I have one dr. that I know will be running at least 30 min. late!! But I can't complain as she does take the time with her patients if they need. I had a neurologist who ran about 1 hour late.... but then again, if I needed the extra time I got it.

I understand this point of view, and to a degree, I agree with it. However, I have one doctor who blames most of the behind schedule stuff on greed and overbooking. The first time I saw him, I had time to look at a magazine in the waiting room, and almost pick out an interesting article to read, but not actually read anything, before they called me to an examining room. I figured it would be a while before he saw me, so I took the magazine along. Didn't even have time to get my shoe off (he's a foot doctor, you see) before he was in the room. He likes to stay on schedule, and if a patient has a concern that's not the reason for the visit, he has them make another appointment. My dermatologist, that's another story. She's always late. I still show up on time, or 5 minutes early, but I take a book. Once, I had the audacity to have other plans at what I thought was a reasonable amount of time after my appointment. After waiting nearly an hour, I went to the reception desk and said I had to leave. They said, "You can't leave, you're the next patient." I told them I had to leave and I'd like to re-schedule, and they said, "But you can't leave." I asked them, "Are you telling me you're holding me here against my will?" That seemed to get their attention. They promptly gave me an appointment for the following afternoon, and I was seen by the doctor within 5 minutes.

If they don't include the fancy wooden presentation box, engraved with the winery logo, skip it.

That should provide some much needed restraint

But some of them do! uggh! Fortunately, those are pretty easy to pass up as a case of some of those is (almost) worth as much as my cellar.
