    Well, that was a good long nap that kit had!

    Okay, I'll bite. What is that cork-ball decanter thingamijiggy? It looks rather 1970s-ish, like soap-on-a-rope!

    A decanter from Pier One, I think. Circa 1985 if I remember correctly. The base is pyrex and very easy to clean if you leave wine residue to dry overnight. I know this from previous experience.

    The wine is quite good for a red wine from a kit. Still a bit of kit taste but not as noticeable as other kits I've made. I plan on opening a bottle once it's settled down for a few weeks. Should go with about any food since it has such a light body to it.

    Are you retiring (which isn't fair, you are younger than I am) or do you have something else lined up? I'm seeing the dancing banana, so I'm assuming you wanted to do it, not forced to do it.

    I could tell you, but...

    Kidding. Just moving from one government contractor to another. Although the new one is very different from any other I've worked for before.

    Today is my first full day as a grandfather. The twins (girl and a boy) were born yesterday around 8:00. 35 weeks to the day and 6 lbs each.

    Congratulations. Being a grandparent is just about the best thing in the world. Spoil them kids, sugar them up, teach them bad habits, then send them home. My wife says it is our reward for not killing our children when they were teenagers and knew everything.
