I am back with so many things on my mind, like Tesla, Raiders and wine aaaaaaaaaaaaaanddddddddddddd
I hurt my back before we left for Hew Zealand. This is my diary
So I slipped in my office just before we left and it took me awhile to get up so I have to be more careful. I have been chastised to a very tight chair now.........wise, by my wife. It is almost like a glove, it is nice and tight and does not rock back and forth. I will miss my nice old chariot that moved so easily and glided across the floor sometimes and I would fall..`
Sorry i know most of you want to hear about wine
So I did some blind tastings today.................
I have really interesting knowledge about wine. I hate wine that has sugar left in them. Does that make me prejudice, I think so. I think wine made with sugar naturally, is a flaw in winemaking. There had to be something that stopped the progression of a Fermentation.........is about complete take over of all sugar by yeast. Think about it is a strong amazing thing.........Sugar is in trouble but fights back to wine over some sugar but with most alcohol. The sounds of fermentation is so much fun,.............. OK`
I tasted some wine today that was ours. I tasted a Block 4 2018, 10 month aged, green. I tasted a 2019, many barrels blended not bottled yet. I preferred the 2019. I was not surprised because it was smoother. A little bit of sugar, makes the mistakes go away, kidding
I have to get over it, sugar makes the wine smother, which might be good?? It will be hard for me. I have to get over it. Beer has sugar and I love IPA's. We are talking about 2 carbohydrates for a bottle of wine.......get over it Dave!!!!!!
I am going to work with Brad tomorrow and see if I can put up some incredible pictures of the Fjords

I know, nice but I am home now so there are many things happening again...........TSLA is up to 404 today
and I had 8 people today put up on my rooftop Tesla solar. It is not considered in the stock, the energy sector for Tesla is surging. The 8 people said today, they are so busy and they were heading off tomorrow to a place near here SO local people Tesla hired for all the demand. I know I believe in Tesla
Jose and I are still thinking about a little bit of sugar for the blends for the 2019 wines. Like I said before, it would only be 2 carbohydrates per the whole bottle. I need to taste more...............

The bottom line for me as I have said before...........I do not like someone who lies...........and also important a president who does not make us feel together...........
You can have your opinions about what this president has done and I have benefited as I have said but I could never vote for a president who is so divisive
In the last two days, Pat, Susie and I have watched Godfather, One and Two.........too many hours, about 6.5.
I could not believe how many times, I heard, ""give me a favor""............

I remember my Mother serving us pasta. She was Greek, I know she served us pasta that was soft.
I went over to Italy last year and all pasta I had was structured, like..........that made you chew more.
I have now tried to perfect a new way to perfect pasta. I have made pasta fresh in the past and I was not impressed because it is also so soft.
Why boil pasta to leach out something in the water?????????
My new method takes time, like boiling pasta in a bot. I put 8 ounces or a pound of dry pasta and add a few ounces of great olive oil, the more the better, Then I put in white Coffaro wine, any wine would be fine. Tonight I put in, tried dried mushrooms which was magical. So then:
I put the pot on the stove at medium, then look to see everything is perking fine. then
You check constantly, I sure do not have this perfected..............
So now taste and see if you like intense crisp pasta ready for a sauce
For any comments or questions I encourage any of you to e-mail.....email@example.com
