    Hey I think I just ran into some luck. My wife likes diamonds for her birthday and Christmas (no-not the big ticket items) and I suggested she buy me a half case of Bollinger Anne 2005 for my birthday and 2004 for next Christmas. The heck with sweaters and stuff. And since I was sick and we did not do anything for a year a little extra money left over. Hope this idea flourishes. Dave Great talking to you again. Dave

    12/30/16, 5:03 AM - Thinking-yup 6:52 a little early to pop a bubbly. I have to confess I bought new a 2004 Boxster S. It turns out it is cheaper than my wife's cars. Looks brand new-I am short-fits me like a glove-feels like they designed the car just for me. Mechanic said easy 250,000 miles. After 12 years 60.000 miles-so the car will last at least as long as I do. But yes-wine is my all consuming passion. My cellar in two years should be finished. I just use cement blocks and boards for magnums and double magnums. My friend put together a wine rack in two hours. (Lucky to have him as a friend) So in about two years all the categories of wine should be filled. -Dave Heading back to bed -could not sleep.

One of us does not even have a license having decided, quite tongue-in-cheek that driving is for peasants, uncivilised and one only should engage in the same when sitting in the back seat :-). Great to read about the cellar!!! We are in our third year of enjoying our cellar...a daily visit!!!
