    I'm about where I expected to be... but surprised Wilson's right behind me. Where's he been lately?

    Good question! (Why organic only, just a personal preference?) I'd hazard a guess that Trader Joe's would be a good place to start looking, that or your local, friendly wine shop (though helping you "not go broke" might not be on their agenda.)

    Is it just me, or are the DBR pages slow to load tonight? I click a link, get a blank black background, wait 10-20 sec., and finally, the rest of the page comes up.

    I'm not seeing anything like that. It's probably a Vista issue.

    I'm hilarious.

    Oh I'm definitely taking my laptop as I use it for research. And they have really cheap wireless where I am staying. But, being in London, the absolute last thing I want to be doing with my time is spending it here. Now, if I find a pub with a decent patio and wireless access that'll be a different story (maybe I'll be able to liveblog the happenings in Covent Garden for all of you).

    I was going to blame the Google ads.

    Oh, I'm SOOO envious of you and your summer in London. Can I come crash with you?? Hope you have a fabulous time.

    Sure. You buy the beer and I'll provide the place to crash. In fact, anyone from the DBR community is welcome to join me.



    Hope you have a fabulous time.
    Thanks, so do I. From what I've heard the weather has been great lately so I hope the rain doesn't follow me from here.

    For the first few days I'll be staying with a cousin in Gourock Scotland (pictured below...her house looks out over the water...my apologies for it not being the clearest photo ever taken).







    After that I'll head down to Ayr Scotland where I lived as a kid (pictured below) to visit family.






    This has links (on the left) to some decent panoramic views of Ayr.



    Then I head down to London Towne (although there will be trips up home to Scotland thrown in every couple of weeks).

    I was going to make some witty comparison between the Boston area and jolly ole England, but they escape me at the moment. My grandmother was a full MacPherson...when I was younger I always wondered if that would be some angle to meet Elle.

    I'm on an organic food kick lately. And the organic wines generally have fewer sulfites. Some of the organic wines even have a no sulfites added (NSA) line of wines.

    I made the top 10! If I post furiously, the 9th spot is within reach.

    Going back, like, a week to the critter problems faced by the DBR community, y'all would appreciate this article: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/05/ga...l?pagewanted=1

    My favorite quotes from it are the guy who ate the woodchucks that plagued him because he felt bad about killing them, and the following quote from a homeowner with a carpenter bee problem: “You can’t sit outside — the carpenter bees come over to see what you’re eating,” he says. “They don’t land on you, it’s not like menacing, it’s like having small children that aren’t yours. You just want them gone. There’s no other way to do it, and I feel very badly about it. I don’t know why they keep coming back. You’d think they’d talk to each other about what happened last year.”

    Yarn? I admit to being able to sew (by hand, not by machine) but I suspect I'd make a mistake of some sort and get you the wrong stuff. If you really need some from there though let me know and I'll see what I can do as I doubt it would add anything to the wieght of my luggage.

    I was having issues as well, but I'll blame it on IExplorer.

    And billybreen ... I do NOT use Vista (yet).

    For some inexplicable reason I'm my DBR pages are bigger than the screen today. I have to scroll to the right to see the right edge. Usually, it fits on the screen. I've tried playing with the size of the window, but to no avail. And I'm not even using Vista on this machine, it's Windows XP Professional.

    At home I have Vista on the host machine and it's causing lots of printer connectivity problems with the other machines on the home network. Maybe I should cross over to the MAC side.

    I am so jealous of you. I used to live in Dunoon when I was a kid. I hope you have a great time.

    Yea, and if I can keep you back there you will have the sweet aromas of bocks, double bocks, IPAs, wheat beers and some other summer favorites
