    Great. I just love "Health Lobbies," and also the EPA, and a few dozen "alphabet organizations," that want to control my life, in one way, or another. What would I do without an entire bureaucracy, looking out for me?

    I cannot imagine how I have lived such a wonderful life, and for so very long, when everything that I enjoy is so very bad for me. Maybe I need to start selling asphidity bags, to counter the gris-gris, that is all around? Or, I could just let some government fix things.

      there's an old quote out there (don't remember who...) that says that after reading so many things about how everything we eat and drink is bad for us, that I've decided to give up reading.

      Can't say that I ever recall coming across all that much online promotion for wine in France...save the emails (that I subscribed to!) for the foires at the big retailers.
