And finally…

Back to our tour of vineyards in Northern Virginia, we visited four. But we first visited the Vanish Brewery, and the beer was pretty good. After that we visited our first vineyard. At least they called it a vineyard. The didn’t have any vines. It was one of those places that buys grape juice and lets it rot for a few months. Awful. The second day we visited three real vineyards. You could kind of drink the stuff. But I must not be much of a connoisseur of fine vintages. They all had won gold medals for excellence.

Hjalmar Steinsvik was the president Of Bulls Press in Scandinavia. They distributed Ernie in Europe.

Heeee’s Back

Hi Everybody. I was gone most of last week. I’ve stopped announcing when and if I’m away for obvious reasons. I was listening to an old Dragnet radio show last week. What happened was people would go away for a week or so and not stop the newspapers or the milk deliveries. Two crooks would break in the back window and dress like an old married couple, call a furniture store and sell everything down to the bare walls. “Your job… Get’Em!” Joe did just that. The app I use for the old radio programs is called OTR.

I was up in Northern Virginia with friends touring some of the vinyards. It was very nice. The country side is beautiful. The old tasting barns are picturesque. It would have been perfect if the wine hadn’t tasted like cow pee. You pay 30 or 40 bucks for a bottle. Then you try to choke it down. I went to Costco today and bought a couple bottles of 30 buck wine. I want to test my savorial memory and see if my newly purchased El Barko de Gomez can compare. I’ll let you know.
