    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.

    Ahh, kids.

    My dad is an odd, extremely cool and nice fellow (think Dakota Rube, including the hazy years in the 70s) and one year at the family Christmas, he bought cases of MadDog and gave them out. He took off their original label and relabeled them with something funny. Say the old lady that liked to hit on younger men got the bottle labeled as some kind of lube with a witty description. The old man got a bottle of liquid viagra, etc.

    It was pretty funny, and probably the only good use of MD 20/20 I've ever seen.

    Might I suggest that since it appears both VP and P want to continue to post here that each does so, with the tact and grace that I know each possesses.

    Threads like this are much more informative and rich as a dialogue, rather than a mere show and tell. I, for one, am curious to learn the opinions of others on purchases posted here.

    I am also certain that we can each take note of the opinions of others, and express our own, in a gentlemanly fashion.

    I hope neither gent steps away from this thread, as a plurality of voices makes this more interesting.

    The 85 Soutard is to add to the line up at a friend's dinner party this Saturday. Fingers crossed it's OK. [​IMG]

    I don't often splurge on wine, but here are a couple of my purchases from the past year. Because I buy so little I concentrate on BC wines.

    I have unopened 2004 and 2005 Le Grand Vin, 2005 Petales, and 2005 Oculus in my collection.

    I have tasted the 2003 & 2005 Le Grand Vin and the 2005 Petales, enjoyed all of them.

    I was finally able to purchase Junipero at my local store. I didn't expect to see it and was happy to finally acquire it.

    Insert Sweet Tea flavored vodka here. if you dont know....you'd better ask somebody (living in the south!)
    I have not seen this vodka here in Yankeeland before but my first question would be where is the other 5% alcohol since it appears the Sweet Tea vodka is 35% while most "standard" vodkas are 40% alc. by volume?

    The Michters 10 Rye is markedly better then the Michters Single Barrel Rye. I like the 10 year more then the Sazerac too, but the Sazerac seems to be more well liked on the interwebs.

    As long as I don't get lectured on how poor my choices are, I will start posting here again. The highlights of today's purchases:

    My whisky! A place here finally had some, so I bought them out. It should last me about six months.

    And the wine purchase that made me the happiest:

    They were doing a major tasting, so we were able to taste the Sauternes and the CdP.

    Pio, nice acquisitions. I'm guessing that Wiser's stuff is good?

    I find it pretty yummy. They also have an 18 y/o, but it was not there, or I would have bought that out too [​IMG]

    Nice. Some serious coin for the '85, I suppose. How was it?
    I was finally able to purchase Junipero at my local store. I didn't expect to see it and was happy to finally acquire it.
    Oooh. Just restocked mine today. Let me know how you like it.

    I'd be happy about the Fladgate, too, but happiest about the Doisy! Have a few 750 '05s and a few halves also. ~ H
