    Happy Holidays to all wine drinkers!

    To all agnostics, atheists and people of all faiths, though it might be helpful if you like the romanticism associated with a bottle of wine.

    Now, that was a challenge that had to be risen to.

    Thanks Mike. And all the best to you and yours.

    Guess where I was on holiday/vacation this year (check the labels)? Those at the bottom are a selection of the sweet wines from Beaumes de Venise

    Both nice images.

    But I will give Mike a couple of additional points simply for the quantity he had to consume to get this tree up.

    How about giving me those points because I was able to snap the picture before the corks fell!

    Imaginative and decorative Holiday images, Mike and Donald. Thanks for the Holiday wishes and the same to all.

    That's a high risk strategy Donald. I hope they have now been returned gently to your cellar after such an indignity.
    Nice sentiments from you both.

    Looked at the shots again and conclude that Mike likes to pour and Donald stash.

    But Donald is safer so points are even.

    I'd be very grateful if you could point that out to my partner ................... everytime she says, "Are you really opening another bottle of wine?"

    I would be willing to bet that Donald, like me, likes to both pour and stash. Wine consumption is no different than anything else in life; there is a fine balance that one must achieve to fully appreciate it.

    But Donald is safer so points are even.
    Whatever scoring basis is used and whatever the topic happens to be, I'll always be proud to be able to keep up with Donald.

    However, I do think I've got both Donald and Bobo beat when it comes to partners. My wife always asks, "Why haven't you opened another bottle of wine?"

    I am showing this to her as "educational" material.

    Considering that we are in the holiday season, this confirms for your records that my consulting fee is hereby waived.
