To decant or Not to Decant

Hey everyone...just recently (yesterday) opened a bottle of wine which tasted very young and immature (the way I feel most days) and so we decided that because I have 3 more bottles of it, the next one I will decant....or should I just cellar it for a few years. It's a young Australian Shiraz...which typically i would not cellar....but is it worth keeping at a price point of $13.00/bt??? Comments....

Canadians go to Vote!

Today our government was found in contempt of parliament.......we need to take this seriously and understand what this means. Our government has not respected our democratic process, the laws of the Canadian people and has ultimately been thrown out of power because of this. Canadians need to react. We cannot accept and tolerate this egocentric behaviour! We have rights and they need to be respected. Unfortunately this government has disregarded every Canadian! Please stand up and vote accordingly for what we all believe in; a democratic society!

In this crazy world.....

Well I thought the title was fitting.....speaking with so many friends whom spent the year with me in Finland....learning tidbits of their lives....just makes you sit back and think about where we were and where we are now. One thing stays constant....a friendship that will always be some of them get married in the next week....others seperate......others...sometimes just confused with the path we are on. At the end of the day, great memories relax the feeling and emotions that some of life`s challenges deliver...and we can find some peace in knowing each other the way we do.

Have GREAT day everyone!
