Langhe can push it, but there's plenty others from Piedmont. Langhes (+ the 50 other Nebbiolo DOC's) and Dolcettos and Barberas and Gavi and Roero and Moscato and so on...
Tuscany has better $10 wines. Piedmont is much more diverse and versatile in the $15-20 range.
In the hockey circles, the French Canadians absolutely adore themselves and their "rich" culture and history.
yeah I've noticed this too. Another thing ... nothing is ever immediate. I'll send something back with a "this number is wrong, what's the deal?" note, and a few hours later (I get time zone problems) I'll get a note back saying "We are looking into this and will get back to you at the earliest."

Thai Iced Tea is a gift from the gods.
my sister in law's terrible rotten "strict organic vegan" boyfriend would read this and buy into it immediately. I was trying to think why this guy pissed me off so much (nevermind the fact that he manipulates the shit out of my sister in law, I don't really care much about that), it's because he's a conspiracy theorist who reads and then preaches stuff like this.
