SO : Time to get started, it is the ' new year 2015 ' and we have lots to
do, lots to move forward with, really no time to waste, no time to slow
down too much, focus, focus, tighten-up, look at things straight on, and
not miss opportunities that can benefit us all. It is exciting, really

I AM COMING FROM a weekend that had me sorting, looking through,
organizing, throwing out, posting and sharing and getting a much better
grip on my many ' loose ends ' that I have promised myself for years that I
would bring together and find some closure to. It is really quite
thrilling, .... THE TIME has certainly come, been a long time in the
making, too.

IT IS WITH GREAT ENERGY, renewed, and relief that I find myself here and
wanting to share both with you all as I continue to get younger and more
enthused and directed with age.

with this steely-cold that might not melt away as was predicted in today's
morning weather forecast?!?

5) Pils Pilsner, STIEGL-Pils Premium Pilsner from Austria is a nice way to
settle comfortable into things, to find one's place in a situation, to

is easier, less-alcoholic, from Salzburger ...get some, sip and enjoy!

LIQUOR / LIQUEUR From Malkit And Jagir :

1) ' Wild Berry Premium Vodka With Natural Flavor from ERISTOFF Black, On
Special for $18.99 a liter bottle, 20% alcohol by volume, this will be fun

4) Calvados ' Selection ' , the ' Coeur De Lion ' from Christian Drouin,
$37.99, 40% alcohol by volume, is a great way to fend off the cold, the
bite, the breeze, the frost and be more comfortable, more able to cope with
this time of year that is so unpredictable, and so cold when you need or
want it least! Cheers, enjoy.

750ml bottle, 53% alcohol by volume, is made from 100% blue corn, and made
by Chip Tate, distiller.  " ... a Texas oak fire, that is. Rather than
using Scottish [eat smoke, this one-of-a-kind whisky is smoked with
sun-baked Texas scrub oak using our own secret process... " You have to try
this, fun, tasty, unique, perfect for this biting cold!

WINE by Chris and Tony :

1) Colheita Seleccionada European Atlantic West Coast, Portuguese dry
white/ branco, $14.99, 2011, from Lisboa is a tasty and flavorful, distinct
and personable wine that I liked almost immediately, it took the third sip
to be sure that we were both on the same plain of activity, we meshed
beautifully, that is, my palate and tongue and this taste , a classic blend
of 50% Fernao Pires and 50% Arinto. It did make me hungry, so have it with
some food. Cheers.

2) Oak Fermented 2013 Dry Spanish Ribeira Del Duero rose with deep,
extracted color, $13.99, from PRADO REY, made from 50% Tinto Fino and 50%
Merlot, this is a fine food wine, really tasty, I recommend it, I really do
and it is perfect for this biting cold weather, dampness and breeze-freeze
outside. The French oak really gives it an extra layer of flavor and
protection that will warm and hold it's own against many a food flavor.

3) 2012 Rosso di Montepulciano from VERBENA winery in Tuscany, Italy,
$29.99. I like the focus, the frame, the flavor and the firmess of this
wine that only gives up ground slowly and surely so that each of our
palates is well-catered, well-received, well-taken-care-of. I like it. It
is a fine medium-bodied, authentic , classic food wine. I liked it there
when I visited with my daughter and Alessandro Furlan, and I like it now.
Thrilled to have it on our shelves!
