I thought the white was terrible stuff.

A flight of 40's for 65th birthday tasting. Agree Cockburns tastes like Australian port, raisins with seeds. wink wink I'd say the same for Sandeman but their 40 year old was a surprising delight.


After the tawny run I started a bottle quest. This was the first bottle row.


Currently working a Macallan Trilogy.

Do you have a favorite port house? Mine was Rocha but they were bought out by Barros. I've sampled all the port houses, 30+, I can get my hands on. At least 20 year old and with 40 year preferred. Anything less and they get too grapey for me. Having played the tawny port houses out I got started on whisky/whiskey sampling/tasting.

Sorry about the cut back. I keep waiting for them to tell me (72) to cut back. Gettin' it while I can. ;-) ;-)

I've been using this wiki for whisky/whiskey reference. I've been on a bottle/sampling quest for years. Big fan of tawny ports also.

And for those hard to get and some time less expensive than local. I've had great luck finding great booze with this search. Works world wide.

Trippin' down the bourbon trail I ran across Jefferson's Ocean. Sloshing around in barrels on a ship vs. sitting stagnate in warehouse has created some delightful drink. Voyage #16 is my favorite. Nice long sweet finish. Sampled most of them but the first few voyages.

Handing over tax returns that are under IRS audit is not fair to anyone. After IRS auditing for sure, hand them over. All elected officials should turn over tax returns. All or nothing.

Where did I say Trump's taxes were under IRS audit?

I made a blanket statement/opinion on elected officials.

Go stand in the corner... LOL

The difference Communism vs. Socialism comparison chart

In a way, communism is an extreme form of socialism. Many countries have dominant socialist political parties but very few are truly communist. In fact, most countries - including staunch capitalist bastions like the U.S. and U.K. - have government programs that borrow from socialist principles.

Socialism is sometimes used interchangeably with communism but the two philosophies have some stark differences. Most notably, while communism is a political system, socialism is primarily an economic system that can exist in various forms under a wide range of political systems.

In this comparison we look at the differences between socialism and communism in detail.

Well, if I was in a similar situation to him, I wouldn't waste funds on 2 cars & a 2nd home used to house a crunching farm & wasting power. I would have rented it out & enjoyed the extra income. :-)

Then again, it takes all sorts to make a world.
