Almost a book, but worth the read.

Etiquette question....

If you're brave enough to try one of Australia's wines that comes in a beer can, do you pour it into a wine glass first or just drink it right out of the can?

As I understand wine, contact with the air helps the flavor 'bloom,' which is why those aerator/pour spouts for bottles are popular. So IMHO, pour the canned wine into a glass. :D
And then recycle the can. :P

There are worse things than waking up to see George Clooney, Idris Elba, and David Beckham in formal wear. :D

50 years ago today I married this man - Bill. I waited a good long time before I decided with whom I wanted to spend the rest of my life. My instincts never let me down. :-)

Congrats Bal, and just think that quite a few posters here still have an opportunity to celebrate their own Golden Anniversary!

I've been on the hunt for a concert, (I attend quite a few Country/Western events) where the crowd wouldn't be standing in front of me with their arms outstretched holding their phones while filming everything.

Short of going to the opera I figured I found the perfect show, where most of the audience remembered the songs from when they were first introduced in the 60's. Sure enough, there were plenty of walkers and the only cellphones were the flip variety.

In Las Vegas Wednesday night for the Righteous Brother(s) act. It was absolutely great. But, throughout the entire show I couldn't help but think maybe I've been spending too much time on the Triple Crown trail. But this guy Bill Medley, from the tuxedo jacket and starched white shirt to the black jeans and the Lucchese Alligator boots, was a dead ringer for DWayne Lukas!

When he was telling stories between songs, whether it was about being the opening act for the Beatles, or LittleLatinLupeLu, Ghost's Unchained Melody or Top Gun's You've Lost That Lovin Feeling you would've sworn it was Lukas telling a tale about Cat Thief, Winning Colors or Lady's Secret.

Here's a short clip I found of Medley, but remember it's a from a few years back, now at age 77 the comparison to DWL is even more remarkable.

IMHO, Bill Medley may have the most amazing voice in rock/pop/country music I've ever heard. :D
