Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink, I feel shame. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this wine, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." ~ Jack Handy

"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day." ~Frank Sinatra
"When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading." ~ Henny Youngman
"24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case . Coincidence? I think not." 
~ Stephen Wright
"When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven!"

~ Brian O'Rourke

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." 
~ Benjamin Franklin
"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza." 
~ Dave Barry
To some it's a six-pack, to me it's a Support Group. Salvation in a can! ~Dave Howell
And saving the best for last, as explained by Cliff Clavin, of Cheers. One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was explaining the Buffalo Theory to his buddy Norm.
Here's how it went:

A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest! ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.

In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."


My first wine maker dinner in South Lake Tahoe was a winery from Yountville, California

At that time Plam Vineyards, had 93 points on Wine Spectator. Our guest was made up of 55 people who lived and worked in South Lake.From the Mayor to the judge at the time and many business people.

5 course dinner pairing of all the Plam wines of the day. Excellent.

Would you believe dinner was only $50.00 per Person. Today it would be around $135.00 per.

If you can take advantage of this 

Gorgeous 97pt Dominus Napa Red On Sale!

How the world works now

If a man cuts his finger off while

Slicing salami at work,
He blames the restaurant.

 If you smoke three packs a day
For 40 years and die of lung cancer,

Your family blames the
Tobacco company.

 If your neighbor crashes
Into a tree while driving home drunk,
He blames the bartender.

 If your grandchildren are
Brats without manners,
You blame television.

 If your friend is shot by a
Deranged madman,
You blame the gun manufacturer.

 And if a crazed person breaks
Into the cockpit and
Tries to kill the pilot at 35,000 feet,
And the passengers
Kill him instead,
The mother of the crazed deceased
Blames the airline.

 I must have lived too long to
Understand the world
As it is anymore.

 So, if I die while my OLD WRINKLED BUTT
is parked in front of this computer,
I want all of you to
Blame Bill Gates.
