I read recently there was a little bit of smoke there too, similar to Seattle.

That's nice. I think you should find all the Italian restaurants in the region and make three different versions of this available: Welcome, Men, Women, but in Italian.

So, make your own. It's not rocket science, even my older son made some, from a grapevine in his back yard. And surprised me, tasted pretty darn good.

Just made a short search on winemaking. Apparently you can make wine out of about anything that is fermentable. And it ain't that hard. How about pumpkin wine for example? Apples, and I don't know what all else.

My guess is, if I tried it, after stomping the grapes the wine would taste like feet.

Seriously, I prefer to stick with woodworking. After doing it for 15 years I feel like I'm actually starting to really learn how to do it right, sometimes.

If you have an open mind, you’ll generally find that you’ll learn the most from the people who say the things you least want to hear.

Methinks the trip to Alaska was worthwhile My choice is all of the above! A serious question-are the Michigan grapes for eating ? Or wine?

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Hey, another thought. If the wine ends up with a smoky flavor pair it with BBQ.
