    There is some good wine floating around here (central coast), but since a heavy month is when I’ve had two glasses, and I have never had a sense of smell, I’m not qualified to speak on it. My wife is in a wine club and we have a pretty good stash, I’m not sure why. She doesn’t drink much either. I think that it’s partly the idea of it, and partly to support a small local winery.

    I’ll find a suggestion or two (or to, or too, or tu) and get back to you. Mike

    Did you know french at any past moment in time?

    I dated a chick that was fluent in French. That was a bit of memorable fun.

    I would second the recommendation of Cakebread Chardonnay and would also suggest trying a bottle of Mer Soleil, which is an affordable ($20.00) Santa Lucia Highlands wine by the Wagner Family. Same family that bottles the excellent Camus Cabernets. During my professional years when I was entertaining clients everyone I introduced Mer Soleil to loved it. The standard one is oaked while the silver label is unoaked. Cheers !

    The weird stuff that sticks in your memory...

    I remember winning a speed spelling bee when I was... 7? By spelling forty without the 'u'.

    As for what it should be, I concur, the number should logically be spelled 'fourty'.

    The word 'forty' could be used thus: Wow... your new house looks really forty. Should be easy to fend off attacking hordes.

    At least forty sounds right. What's up with five and fifty? And why isn't it oneteen, twoteen and threeteen?
