Thought of the Day - its wed, what do you expect
Wine Spectator is good...and bad. I like their content. Their marketing sucks. I renewed my subscription to their magazine. However, the renewal process didn't prompt me to renew my online subscription. So now I have to wade through their website, which looks like it was designed in 1995, to re-enroll. Annoying. No doubt the 'web' side is separate from the 'print' side. Get it right folks...this isn't the first year the interweb has been around.
Had lunch with a person I ran into at an airport a while back. I did some 'after the fact work' for the MCI meltdown a few years ago and I met the guy who led the internal investigation at the company. Interesting to meet someone connected to some work you've done, doubly so b/c it was front page news in the WSJ.
2006 Marquis Philips Sarah's Blend - good, but not as good as year's past
2005 Columbia Crest Grand Estates Merlot - junk
