Fried-again on Friday night & watching the speech-part of the Olympic-opening ceremony.

The NBC commentardoes seem to be a little high & biased themselves, although we thought the Russki's ran a fine opening program.

The NBC boyz watched the 3 minute history of early Russia, and compressed 2,500 years to 1,000 years.

Of course it was free Network TV & I get what I pay for---or not.

Sluuuuup.

No climbing this weekend, since it is snowing hard here in Idontno's low desert.

I couldn't resist - I made myself a margarita using SNOW.

Man, I wish I had just done that just once in any of my northern homes.

What an oversight...

Meh.

Temecula cab? You drinking on a budget?

So Cal tip: The grocery stores in Temecula have the same wines as the wineries, at a huge discount.

Hunting down ice wine to bring to my Merrican friends this week. Got some Vidal by Strewn. Eyeballing the Diamond Cab Franc to pick up tomorrow. But gotta check Peller and Inniskillen too.

While Niagara's ice wines are world class, and some whites like Gewertztraminer are OK, for the most part the reds are appallingly bad. Virtually any eight buck red from Trader Joe's will kick the snot out of any forty or fifty dollar bottle here.

nate called them the bugs of the ocean. I said No - these are the *tastiest* bugs of the ocean ;-)

Pagenmonkeyboy! Sorry to read of your plight.

As some say:

Eat Crustaceans one night

Crabs may follow.


Carry on!

and drink to Friday night without Rsin.

Happy Valentine's Day to all!

I might be dumb, but I'm not stupid ;-)

Valentines went down with a wonderful 2005 Napa Chardonnay here at El Rancho de la Bashura Blanca. 31+ years of bliss with the same valentine.

Went so sleep well but was awakened at 5:00 AM to a nightmare that Locker found my facebook account and was posting there.

Back from Florida and ready to climb some sh#t. Trending towards a beach climb at Pt Dume this weekend.

hey only Thursday night but this is my first night a little buzzed in a long time. We went down the hill to a local "hookah bar" and had some good baba ganoosh (sp?) and excellent falafel, me with a glass of French Pinot, he with a local Pale Ale. The wine was fine but the beer was much better. The evening is warm, I was wearing sandals and was not cold - a small miracle.

Home now for a cup of herb tea, good night.

A toast to you Frostbacks! A huge Winter Olympics for you!

With about 1/10 our population, you have beat us in head-on competition and have nearly as many 2014 Winter Olympic Medals.

Sluuuuuuup.

A little Cline Mourvede & some H3 Cab, and I can enjoy watching your folks kicking our ass.

Gneiss for us to get that Gold in Slalom tonight, but for the first time in 30 years no long-track skating medals for U.S.

Canada 34.88 million

Norway is *waaaaaay* smaller than Canada, and they got even MORE medals. Of course, there is an unfair advantage, since all Norwegians are born with skis on their feet.

I am enjoying a rum punch made with Belizean rum picked up at Mr. King's gas station in beautiful downtown Dump, Belize.

Loooong freaking week, fifteen hours each day from when I leave until I return.

I got bitched at by the boss for being a perfectionist and not just getting things done, and then this happened;

I was twenty feet up on pump jacks, siding a house, when the ladder I was using as a work bench fell, narrowly missing my ground guy. I yelled out 'Heads Up!!!', but he's a big guy and doesn't move quickly. The falling ladder, and everything on it (8' stepladder, siding, etc) missed him by inches. I almost sh#t my pants in a nanosecond.

Nobody was hurt, but I'm nursing a rocks glass of Eagle Rare bourbon to relieve the stress.

Happy Friday, here's to a better next week.

Brandon! Glad nothing more serious happened with the falling ladder and sidding incident.

I'll drink the: "Here's to cheating death!" toast for you tonight!

Sluuurp!

I'm stuck in SLC tonight, with the S. Idaho blues again.

7:30 AM sales presentation tomorrow morning, 40 miles away.

(not all that bad since I'm staying with my best friend and his wife!)

Chianti at dinner, and Norton Malbec for desert.

Brandon, I'm actually working out my right arm curling beers at the local pub in preparation for our epic adventure! Ok, and some sit ups too...
