    Laird Cabernet Sauvignon 2015.
  2. This is an outstanding album, if you like Poco or country rock, this is highly recommended.
  3. Poco: Live at Columbia Studios, Hollywood, 9/30/71
  4. RIP Stanley Crouch

    This is a very interesting article. Thanks for posting.
  5. Now reading...

    Roosevelt: The Lion and the Fox by James MacGregor Burns. First of a two volume biography of FDR. Kind of old style in its writing, but it is still a good book where a person gets a feel for the era portrayed.
  6. Serena Williams vs The World

    Serena's still looking for the one last Grand Slam. Of the four players from last night, Williams looked the weakest. The Osaka vs. Brady match was a very entertaining match, I can't believe how much Brady has improved her game. Osaka vs. Azarenka will be close, but I think Osaka has too much power for Vika.
  7. Dame Diana Rigg, R.I.P.

    The Hospital is one underrated movie, it's great and Riggs was very good.
  8. Please movie gods, let this Dune be done right!
  9. How's the weather?

    The fires are causing extremely smoky skies today in Napa and the Bay Area
  10. Neil Young: Massey Hall. It fully merits all the praise it receives, wonderful album
  11. How's the weather?

    Unbelievably stupid hot! 111 yesterday, cooled off to 109 today... AND the house I live in has no air conditioning, it's miserable!
  12. MLB Season 2020

    Thanks for the links, good article
  13. Lou Brock Steals Home

    Roger Angell always thought Brock getting thrown out at home was the turning point of the 1968 World Series -- might be true looking back on it.
  14. MLB Season 2020

    I know he was past his prime as a player with the Mets, but a good manager, so I have a soft place in my heart for Gil Hodges, he struck me as a classy, quiet guy. He gets my vote for number 2.
  15. The Franchise RIP

    As a Padres fan back then, thanks a lot Mets!
  16. The Franchise RIP

    Sad, sad, sad. I remember my sixth-grade teacher was a big sports fan and let us watch the 1969 World Series during class time (the ancient days where the games were all day games). Classy and great player, saw him win a 1-0 game against the Padres, and the Padres never had a chance. Too bad he wasn't able to make the 50th anniversary of that 1969 team. RIP
  17. Absolutely love, love, love this album. I think it's one of the greatest albums ever.
  18. Now reading...

    Sword of Honor Trilogy by Evelyn Waugh. First book is by far the best, the other are okay, but not earth shaking.
  19. Billy Bottle and the Multiple-Unrecorded Beam
  20. what are you drinking right now?

    Don Francisco French Roast
  21. The Bible: Walking The Ghost Back Home
