Lovely day for a Guinness

Bought this deck of playing cards at St. James's Gate. The beer I'm having now reminds me of that also lovely day.

The wonderful world of wine

When I worked in the technology field, I started hanging out with people who were into wine. I thought it was fun, interesting and cultural. And the stuff tasted darn good. So I started getting into it myself. I started one of the world's first wine websites, because I knew how to do it. Eventually I got pretty good at writing about wine. Now 15 years later, it's become a life time endeavour. Very enjoyable indeed. Enjoy my blog. I will re-post my best articles to this blog from my previous home-grown blog. Cheers, WB.
