I excel at most I do, absolutely(!), including tasting and identifying wine varietals, blends (and percentages therein to +-5%), food (deconstructing ingredients and formulating precise recipes) and beer (ales, lagers, wild). I can taste grapes off the vine and identify the varietal as well, evermore! I am truly blessed with the gift of a phrase I personally coined, "Perfect Taste", positively.
Cheers!

So can I!! I read the label on the wood stake next to the vine.


Sir, that is not "identifying" a varietal Roll Eyes, absolutely! I trust you do not drink a bottle of wine labeled "100% merlot" and "identify" it as, a merlot, definitively?

Taste practice can in time make "perfect taste", positively (yet, I was born with this gift)!

Wander the vineyards "tasting" grapes blindly and you, too, will develop identification abilities and perhaps one day, "perfect taste", hopefully. I for one, have been doing so since I was a young child, naturally!

Cheers!

The 1995 Embassy Act was passed by Congress, and every president since Clinton has waived and delayed action on this, mostly due to "national security" reasons. The city is too much of a flashpoint for this to be a good idea. That's why NO ONE has their embassy there now. More grandstanding and deflection by the orange idiot.

BRR, I hate to poop in your Wheaties, but varietal is a noun as well. I thought I'd throw this in before the gasbag responds with another overwrought post. Cheers!

If anyone thinks there is or will ever be any chance of peace or even peaceful coexistence the U.S. can’t do this let alone be the only one taking such an obvious and blatant position.

Seasoned advisors within the current administration warned against this unwise move that will produce nothing positive and only cause greater division or worse. This entire issue is SO far above the orange idiots capabilities it is both laughable and scary.

Agreed. As such, I respectfully request that posts on this thread remain as apolitical as possible. Otherwise, I will be in the unfortunate position to hound those on this board that may contribute to this post's demise. Razz

Thank you for listening.
It's not that freaking hard. Go over to the Travel & Entertainment section. Create a thread with some innocuous title like "What kind of pet do you own?" or "Looking for Napa recommendations" that'll likely get people to click into it. Then start the post with whatever political point you'd like to make. Sit back and watch the uncontrollable contribute with abandon. Lather, rinse, repeat.
