    I was traveling, so I wasn’t able to go. It looks like fun and a good tradition for them.

    Make sure you sign up for the new email system. Evidently I was the first to do so.

    I wasn't sure based on Jim Gearing's email how to sign up to their new email system. It said to send an email to subscribe, but wasn't clear to whom I should send it (I assume Jim Gearing). I asked.

    Got an email from Jim and he walked me through it. I’m on the list now.

    Glad I saw this. I just thought Jim was going to send instructions of some kind. How do you sign up?

    Just click on the groups.io link and it will walk you through it. It was pretty easy for me so you should have no problem.

    I think I’m in now. Looks like only 4 members so far. And I know who three of them are. ;)

    Mrs Mann suggested that I take a year off from making wine from grapes this year because we might be moving.... I told her to come back to me when we ARE moving. I honestly doubt we’re going anywhere this year.

    But if it happens, moving a primary with 6 lugs of grapes could be an adventure.

    Meh. I moved a dozen full carboys, a couple full barrels, 25 cases of full bottles. Granted, none of them were an open primary, but I think you'd come up with an acceptable solution. ;)

    You know the more I think about it I don't think it's Mrs Mann. I really think Jim is getting lazy on us.

    I’m getting too old for this sh#t.

    If we move, I’ll have about 20 cases of wine and 5 carboys to move. This would only increase that to 8, worst case.

    If I have to put it somewhere, I thought I’d impose on Craig to watch it for me.
