Welcome.  I like to laugh a lot, but sometimes I get too political in my postings.

Welcome SSS.  You have a good philosophy, and the pics you posted in the other thread look pretty good.

That's, mostly, because we're old.

Yeah, old as in 'retired'.  Let it be known that I only retired early so there would be more time for drinking wine.  That sort of thing was frowned upon at work.

Welcome, SSS. Did I misread in the other thread or did you say you'll be living in Alsace soon?

"Retirement is really just a state of mind."

It's been a couple years and we're still trying to figure out what state Al's in!

OK, that's pretty funny.

Based on the life of ease that Al is enjoying, I think I want to be in that state.  Not really.  I know it snows there.

Really Big Al, I agree I feel semi-retired and I work 50-55 hours a week because I absolutely love what I do for a living.

Hi Dmcker, we're relocating to Thuringia, possibly Erfurt or Jena. Alsace is about 6-7 hours away. Perfect distance for an extra-long weekend away. Thanks for the "welcome" Cora

Welcome to the forum Cora.  What are your preferences with wine currently?  I'm a weirdo because I really don't drink white wine.  I wasn't much into Pinot Noir either, but I'm getting a little more interested in it.  Simultaneously, I am losing interest in the ridiculous over-wrought wines.

Hi DVOGLER honestly I don't really have a preference or strong dislike. However I am sometimes a little turned off by heavily oaked Chardonnays. Other than that I pretty much drink anything. Right now I am drinking more rosés, well because tis the season :-)
