I had some really good wines over the past week.  I'll post on them in a bit.  In the meantime, carry on!

 Hope none of them were my zin!   

 

 

Oh... I didn't drink them.  They are too good as marinades!  

So harsh.....

Very fine people drink Zinfandel.  I know at least one.  But #whataboutretsina?  

Your Zins are safely chilling with real wines until you come south, or I come north.  Trust me, they are safe from consumption down here.

#whataboutpinkzin?  At least my zins are red.....  And I new they would be safe with you!

There is nothing wrong with Zins!  Another arrow in the quiver of wine tastings.

Zin was my one of my gateway wines from whites to reds many years ago.  I still like it with smoked meats, especially with traditional BBQ sauces.  As far as bman's comment on his Zins being red, I'm reminded of the first time I brought a bottle of "good" Zin to my parents' house for a cookout.  My mom (a notorious consumer of White Zin) loved it, and asked me what it was.  When I told her it was Zinfandel, she chided me and showed me her glass of Beringer White Zin, and told me... "this is Zinfandel."

My wife and I are spending a few days in Nashville in early May. Driving straight through from the Chicago area. The route takes us through Louisville and we are heading down on a Saturday - I just realized it’s the same day they have some little horse race...

I just had my Turley Zins delivered yesterday...along with a couple Petite Syrahs.  Now just need to make some pancakes to pour it on top of.   I admit, I am a sucker periodically for a fruit bomb

As the wine lord said: "Let he who is without zin, cast the first...…."

Bezos gives up $36 B to ex wife, still the richest man in the world.

She should be the richest lady also

An interesting part in the deal is that Bezos retains the voting rights of the stock she owns.  I wonder if that would make it harder for her to sell her shares if she wanted?

Pres. Trump is confused about where his father was born?  Recently claimed his father was born in Germany, but in the Art of the Deal, he says his father was born in New Jersey, and the truth is that his father was born in New York.  No wonder he was confused about where Pres. Obama was born.  If he can't recall the location of his own father's birth, it's not surprising that he'd screw up on the location of the birth of someone else.

He is seriously ill, this guy.  The fact that he likes his steaks well done with ketchup is just another symptom.

When you make up everything you say on the spot, it's a little hard to keep things straight.

He made up that Trump didn't seem to know where his father was born? Here's your boy:

Adult man doesn't know where his father was born, thinks he's from another country.

My own favorite:

Adult man repeatedly says "oranges" for "origins.

Secret Service head canned. 

It just goes on and on...  tRump apparently, as is his habit, gave Alles the disparaging nickname of "Dumbo," making fun of his large ears.  Brilliant manager and motivator that he is, making fun of the guy whose department is responsible for his personal safety.  What a tool.

Maybe the personal detail will protest by standing down for a day.

One could only hope.   Then he'd have to hole up in the WH with a dozen cheesberders and a Big Gulp of covfefe.  Oh yeah... he does this most days anyway.

(Un) fortunately, these poor guys are still tasked with taking a bullet for his idiocy, regardless of how he denigrates their work.

Flying water tankers. Must act fast!

Interestingly, it was actually considered, along with helicopters with water.  Unfortunately, it took up to 45 minutes before they actually sprayed any water on the structure,  Sounds like they were not prepared for such a problem.

I assume that there were not fire sprinkler installed within the structure.  Maybe they can rectify that with the rebuild.

I wonder how long it will take to rebuild the church.  Sounds like money is pouring in, so maybe it will be rebuilt sooner rather than later.

Napacat is right.  I have read from several sources that Barr is working with Mueller on redactions to the report before releasing it to Congress and the White House.  So Guiliani would not see it before Trump or Congress.

Interesting, Dershowitz argues that Trump and his legal group should be able to see the report and issue their own findings in concert with the release of the Mueller report to Congress.  His argument is that the Mueller report is a prosecutor's report and the defense should be able to provide a response at the same time.  But Barr has decided against that and will release the Mueller report by itself.

I'm alright with them releasing their own spin after it is released to Congress. Especially as Trump will probably find himself a defendant at some point. However, what I do not want to see is Barr pull another "Nunes"; racing to the WH in the dead of night to spoonfeed them the report before anyone else has a chance to see it.

Nailed it, unfortunately. As predicted, Barr is loading the dice. Anyone in the WH who told the complete truth about their dealings with Trump had better jump now.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/0...-mueller-report.html

 See the source image

So to recap the Mueller Report, now that it is out:

-Wikileaks colluded with Russia to obtain its stolen emails

-Trump Junior and others in the Trump campaign colluded with Wikileaks over the stolen emails (proven through emails between them, quoted in the report)

-but there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia

Right, got it!

As for obstruction of justice, the only reason Trump didn't obstruct justice is because his lawyers and others refused to follow his directions to do so.  Good to know!

Nothing to see here, carry on.....
