Without a word of a lie, I can report that my daughter's first taste of wine was of a Chateau Margaux.

It was from a bad year, though. ('91)  Smiley

I have been there, and enjoyed the hell out of it, but... from a geographical standpoint, wouldn't that be "down" rather than "up" from you, Pam?

No Yimmy, it's up.  We were just in very northern Caifornia for the Ferndale races and we used to live there.  Now we live in Carmel by the Sea and it's more central coast.

I have this mental image of you in your living room, surrounded by about 30 buckets, sipping wine and spitting it...in private!   Cheesy

(Hey, what can I tell ya? I was born to be a smartass...)

You are a smartass for sure, but that was funny.   I will admit it.

For some reason I had the notion you lived in Ferndale, Pam.  dunno

Ferndale, Humboldt county--is the place where the best marijuana on earth(percentage of tetrahydrocannibol delta'9)on is cultivated--folks in Amsterdam are jealous of what california can produce

I was posting from there for two weeks so that is probablly why you got that idea.  And I am from that county.  

Ferndale is probably the only town left in that county that hasn't been ruined by the drug trade and the casinos.  They keep that town clean and are proud of it.  Not a lawn unmowed, not a house unpainted when due.  Still using the old beautiful churces with those tall steeples (spires?)

Oenophile dad, at least at the time... my wife and I were taking out a friend who was also a wine nut; she'd just graduated from William & Mary, so we celebrated in high style.

Trombetta had a turf firster in today at Belmont that I kinda-sorta liked... Maggie knocked him without reservation, said he didn't look physically ready, and god bless her, she saved me money, the horse was short.

What a handicapping asset she is.  I rarely let anyone talk me off a pick, but I have listed to her before and will do so again.

Great call.

Maggie really seems to know what she is looking at--i havent a clue and i agree , her opinion carries more weight than all the others--which carry no  virtually weight at all

i am a stubborn horseplayer and if i am going to lose my money on a horse--its gonna be a horse I selected

Props to the Twilight Zone dood as well, he said if the short-priced Asmussen piece in that race won, he's shave his beard.   Cheesy  He remains unshaven.

Trombetta just won the other turf sprint, btw, but the price was horrid.

Couldn't agree more... a lot of seemingly random stuff. 

Speaking of random, who has a hoss in this turf sprint stake but BOBBY FLAY?

Could the synergies and business model be there for this Robotian Euroimport?

Ah, but this is a story for (all together now)...   Cheesy
