|Jean, Jean, Jean . . . oh my goodness, what can I say here. French wines? French culture?|
The very fact that the studies, from France, have proved that the aspect in a red wine, dans
le vin rouge, cette parfait pour le corps (sadly my French is poor . . c'est mal) maintains one's
vigor and does not let one obtain a corpus maximus. But, now, allow me to think back on the
repast of Thanksgiving . . . did we have a wine from France . . . give me a few moments. No,
this year we did not. However, I shall be extremely happy to visit once again to France to
check up on the wines. But, as an aperitif, we did have a lovely French cognac flavored
And, I too, here on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, north of San Francisco, toast all you
lovely folks that I have so enjoyed over the past few years. To your health?

Hi Jack !
I join Paul in wishing you an happy day but I can hardly believe you when you write "And, it is always a delight how international we are." seeing that you did not offer any French wine to your friends ;-). Is that a side-effect of the pitiful economical globalization we are living now ?
When you come to France, I'll be happy to share with you what is the wine culture in this country !
Just for now, I gonna pour myself a glass of my local Jura wine (white Savagnin) , and I raise it for all the list members from everywhere in the world, hoping that we can exchange our wines tastings as well as our alternative processes pleasures :-)
Cheers from France

Dear Paul, I actually forgot to say there was an Australian Shiraz as well.
And, it is always a delight how international we are.
Cheers to you

You have my deepest sympathy for not being able to source Australian wines.
(Particularly our South Australian reds).
Enjoy the day anyway!
I'm going to echo Mark, who aint not turkey.
We'll have about 16-18 for the meal tonight, along
with some fine Italian reds, a few New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs,
and some of California's finest. Of course, we will be eating as well.
Best of this holiday to all . . . though, a friend, a Mandan, told me,
"Jack, for us it is a day of mourning."
