1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Yeah, I do tend to spoil my guests as well, and a few have been grateful for the exposure to something other than Budweiser and hot dogs, but if this is a large wedding, I don't know that it is the place to be spending 100 dollars on a bottle of champagne. Unless you have that kind of money to spend. But the meal had better live up to it.

    No degrees, no.  I was a judge in a few cooking contests, but it was only for fun.  I experiment and let my husband taste.  He's not harsh enough, though.  Nobody around is harsh enough.  I want someone to tell me there isn't enough lemon juice, that the shallots were slightly burnt, or that my Mornay sauce is too thick.  It's always the same scenario: I'll be unhappy with most of the courses I will have cooked for a dinner, but not a single person will apparently notice.  Pfff...

    Edit to add that I am not trying to get compliments. I truly wish I could get honest criticism of my dishes.

    Well he said he wanted to spend up to $150 and mentioned that it would only be a few bottles. It's not like you get married that often anyways (unless you're Britney Spears [​IMG] )

    I think that you are driving yourselves nuts for no reason at all.  Over the last 20 years or so I have drunk more champagne than everything else combined.  It is clear to me that champagne is a wine to be drunk (guzzled) at any time, with anything, or nothing.  I have enjoyed champagne with classic french, chinese, pizza, and potato chips and dip.  There are few I have not drunk; some are better than others.  Stop parsing this and grab whatever you like out of the fridge.
