Make sure to cut longitudinally, and use warm water.

Through early morning fog I see
visions of the things to be
the pains that are withheld for me
I realize and I can see...


That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please

Natural cork?


Oh yeah. And the opening of the bottle was slightly broken, so the edges were smooth...finally I muscled it out with nary a "pop" and without it foaming everywhere. I'm tempted to put a little absinthe in with it.

I'm impressed it was you who handled this, as I'm under the impression you didn't spend your misguided youth reading poetry in a dark room wearing black. I thought either Evan or I was going to have to step in to assist. :laf:

I loved enjoying poetry, hole in the wall bars (real ones, not faked), foggy river banks, the dark interiors of Mayan ruins, staring at sunsets, star lit black sand beaches, mother nature, & booze. The only 'clothes' I got into were hand woven Mayan outfits, so for the most part clothes were for keeping me out of jail.

Now I wear clothes as my duty for my fellow beings, as my chest fell into my drawers, and hair is in all the opposite places of were it should, or shouldn't, be. :laugh:

Borsodi's on Magazine street by Freret in NOLA was the best. White dove flying around the room and all (no LSD required). Covered floor-to-fifteen-foot-ceiling in art and tchotchkes. *sigh*. Miss that place and may Robert rest in peace.

Naturally. For Death is Sleep's sexless sister. Old Father Time watches over them so as to ensure that they do not become ensnared on Fate's spidery, mummifying silks



"All I know is that while I'm asleep, I'm never afraid, and I have no hopes, no struggles, no glories — and bless the man who invented sleep, a cloak over all human thought, food that drives away hunger, water that banishes thirst, fire that heats up cold, chill that moderates passion, and, finally, universal currency with which all things can be bought, weight and balance that brings the shepherd and the king, the fool and the wise, to the same level. There's only one bad thing about sleep, as far as I've ever heard, and that is that it resembles death, since there's very little difference between a sleeping man and a corpse"
-Cervantes- 'Don Quixote' :cheers:

The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

Indeed. Not all we say, it seems, is nonsense. After all, all we say comes from symbols. And perception, as we know, varies from person to person. And, so, it is impossible to speak without being misunderstood in some sense. :wave2:

It happens to me on a daily (24 hour day) basis.

No matter if it's a line in the sand, hand gesture, written or spoken word. Yes, I struggle. <shrug>


Gives me something to do. :wave2:

Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

I delivered pizzas in that area in 1991. In a 1975 Olds 99.
Did you ever go to The Absinthe House Bar when they had the blind blues guitarist? It was my favorite joint until the turned it into a daiquiri shop. Talk about ambiance. The bar was moved back to the absinthe house where listerine like products are sold.

Where was it located? In the Quarter? May have stumbled in there once.

Yup. The Old Absinthe House Bar was/is across the street from the Old Ansinthe House of legends. The bar was hidden in the warehouse during the evil times of prohibition. The elegant bar in the dimly lit grungy warehouse, was a great place to listen to a good blues band. The band leader is blind, and is a great performer.

Py package from Catskill Cellars arrived this morning!!! :thumbup:

Enjoying playing a comparison game with Vieux Carre, Meadow of Love, and Ridge Verte.


I know I should be letting the bottles aerate a bit before passing judgement, but I have to say....

Jules and Joe-- you have put out a really great product!!! So delicious and fresh!! Almost like I'm tasting the love you packed into the bottle. Thank you!!

:)
Today is the tomorrow you promised to yourself yesterday.
