cheap thrills

I am unduly entertained by reading the comments on
the NYT monthly Wine School series.
I am half convinced many of the participants
are trolling, but I think it is just wishful thinking.
Highly recommend!

dying flower

I'm not one to cut flowers, but this was in the garden
with a broken stem. Old medicine bottle
found while out for an amble.

Brian: Please, please, please listen! I've got one or two things to say.
The Crowd: Tell us! Tell us both of them!
Brian: Look, you've got it all wrong! You don't NEED to follow ME, You don't NEED to follow ANYBODY! You've got to think for your selves! You're ALL individuals!
The Crowd: Yes! We're all individuals!
Brian: You're all different!
The Crowd: Yes, we ARE all different!
Man in crowd: I'm not...
The Crowd: Sch!
(Life of Brian, 1979)

I love Mick and Charlie in this video...

I really like iceberg lettuce,
earl grey tea and box wine.
