    Quitter. :)
    Seriously, though congrats - I'm glad you're excited about it. I know a few other folks in the wine biz (although not in your part of the country). IM me if it would be helpful/interesting to be introduced.

    Thanks, there's a good chance I'll take you up on that.

    Not hanging up the knives entirely. I'll be cooking with my old boss once or twice a month for his dinner parties and such. But I'm ready for a nice long break from the heat and hours of the professional kitchen.

    Yes and no, I just get annoyed when people claim Denmark is the best place in the world, based on PR, Copenhagenize etc. and I doubt Chicago is branded in the same way, as Copenhagen.

    Also Copenhagen is the dirtiest/filthiest/filled with trash place I have been in the western world.

    Yup ten years, we had to sign the book with name and year, so you could see the age, I once got a book my sister had had 4 years before me. In the nineties we had a big pull down map of Europe in the classroom, it had USSR and east and west Germany on it.

    Today, Pepper went for her first bike ride

    It was notably dirty the last time I was there.
    10 year old textbooks and pre-soviet pulldown maps are de rigueur in american schools though...I'd guess I am 5+ years younger than you and we had that same crap when I was in school.

    We are all awesome, in our own way. Ray Stevens had a song a long time ago with a similar theme.
