The Glorious Fourth!

The Constitution is not flawed, but the Democrats are.

Their candidate is not only flawed but corrupt and crooked. Got that out of the way.
I feel better. Now, is there a living flag somewhere across the fruited plain?

Wishing the JOM family a Happy 4th of July !

The day we celebrate independence from the tyranny of the British, and enjoy the blessings of liberty.

May we experience a similar event this coming November.

Jack is Back!

Back from our annual 4th of July Parade. Featuring 2 WW2 Vets. One guy went through OCS with my Dad is now 101 y.o. Great show my our Colonial Volunteer army and rolling artillery. Go to my FB for video and photos.

All this talk about wine, you may want to try Long Island wines for a change of pace. Not expensive and quite good due to the excellent terroir we have on the East End. Grouped in two categories: North Fork and South Fork. Greatest number are on the North Fork, like Bedell, Palmer, Macari and Shinn. But even in Southampton we have a nice vineyard in Duck Walk (best Blueberry port I have ever tasted), Channing Daughters (our local wine club) in Bridgehampton and Wolffer also in Bridgehampton.

Don't know if you can get them outside of the Tri-State area (NY/NJ/CT) but if do run across one or two worth the try.

Unfortunately for the country, Howard Zinn still lives. Robert G. Parkinson continues to beat up the men who wrote the Declaration of Independence in order to publish more garbage.

We welcome to the blog (UNC Press Blog) a guest post by Robert G. Parkinson, author of The Common Cause: Creating Race and Nation in the American Revolution, which is being published in association with the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture, Williamsburg, Virginia. When the Revolutionary War began, the odds of a united, continental effort to resist the British seemed nearly impossible. Few on either side of the Atlantic expected thirteen colonies to stick together in a war against their cultural cousins. In this pathbreaking book, Parkinson argues that to unify the patriot side, political and communications leaders linked British tyranny to colonial prejudices, stereotypes, and fears about insurrectionary slaves and violent Indians. Manipulating newspaper networks, Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Franklin, and their fellow agitators broadcast stories of British agents inciting African Americans and Indians to take up arms against the American rebellion. Using rhetoric like “domestic insurrectionists” and “merciless savages,” the founding fathers rallied the people around a common enemy and made racial prejudice a cornerstone of the new Republic.

Founding Fathers-H8er Parkinson continues his Zinnian bilge in today's NYT with "Did Fear of Slave Revolts Drive American Independence?"

May Zinn and his foundation roast eternally in the afterworld for continuing crimes against humanity.

Happy Independence Day to all JOMers! SV is filling up with filthy rich white people here for the Allen & Co conference which starts tomorrow. Just sat next to a VERY old cat with a VERY large black bodyguard at the SV Club at lunch. The entire staff was quite solicitous to him.

Sorry I missed the wine discussion. I'm very familiar with Leonetti, glas. The Figgins are also long time SV denizens. A little too proud of their wines, however. For that price point there are two dozen CA cabs that would kick their tails to say nothing of Merlots. If I want a Sangiovese, I know where to look and ain't anywhere on this continent. And like most WA wines, they don't age particularly well, IMO.

DrJ

lyle,

If I want a Sangiovese, I know where to look and ain't anywhere on this continent.

I'd appreciate a few recommendations. I like Sangiovese, but the Italian ones we've tried were not that good. The CA ones can be bright and fruity, but I'd like to try a "real" one.

lyle

I hasten to add that were I served any Leonetti wines I would gladly accept. I just stopped buying them years ago.

Good job on the takedown of the wine snot, DrJ. When I encounter one of them--usually a distributor rep--bloviating over how this or that wine should be made, I always ask them about the size and variety of their own cellars. The quick change of subject is always amusing. Same with unusually stuffy sommeliers...

lyle

What of price range, DrJ?

DrJ

lyle,

How much must one spend to get a reasonable one? All other things being equal, under $20 is preferred, but if it is a one-off to try something representative and good, over that is OK too.

Sufficiently vague? :)

Enjoyed the wine discussion and learned quite a bit.
I like a good Riesling.
Any suggestions?

DrJ

Trimbach is reliable, though it has gotten a tad pricey for everyday consumption (at least for us):

http://www.trimbach.fr/en/alsace-wines/our-classic-range/

Captain Hate

I've always been a KD fan but was hoping he'd sign a one year deal to try and win one with Westbrook after OKC upgraded a team that came verrrrry close to knocking off his new team. On paper it's a can't miss team but reality often throws some curve balls at those. And for those three or four diehard Seattle fans who've been spanking it hard since this announcement: you're still jealous losers without a team that people like me love to make fun of.

Jack is Back!

DrJ,

May be pricey but the Trimbach Frederíc Emile is IMHO the trendsetter for Alsace wines. A wonderful summer wine for rich seafoods. Very popular here in The Hamptons for that reason.

tonto,

Where? The Y? I have to check to see if he is using Philosofit. I might run into him Ari is the top PT in all of the area. Its were I do my PT. BTW, had to spend some time last tuesday when Mrs. JiB did her PT at Philosofit and had a nice omelet at Papa John's . Forgot all about that great cafe.

glasater

And like most WA wines, they don't age particularly well, IMO.

I think you're correct lyle.. Altho there have been some great Leonetti reds that were downright 'chewy'.. years ago. The cab at the Humane fund raiser I was photographing wasn't bad but have to say I was disappointed in the merlot they were offering.

These people make a nice sangiovese and their other wines are top notch. I've photographed from them for years and get wine in trade :-)

Marlene

Happy 4th! I drove back from NH this morning,made it under four hours. Luckily,the only LE vehicle I saw was a border patrol SUV.

maryrose, Riesling is my favorite,try Dr. Loosen.

The weather here is beautiful,I'm so happy to be sitting on my porch!

Miss Marple 2

It rained most of yesterday and all of this morning. The rain has stopped but it's overcast and VERY humid.

I guess the fireworks are on for tonight but they won't be visible unless you are right downtown.

I am making steak and corn-on-the-cob for supper.

Don't have much to offer on wines. I buy the cheap stuff and don't have much of a palate for discerning differences between the more expensive stuff, so cheap gets the vote. I am fascinated by the differences you all see between different vintners, states, etc.

Carry on.

DrJ

MM,

There really is a difference. Out here we are very fortunate to have a lot of wineries close by. That really is the best way to get to know and appreciate the tremendous variety they have.

JiB,

We have gone for the "economy" Trimbach Riesling. Not too long ago we could get that one for about $15, so we had it every now and again. It slowly has increased in price so that it is difficult to find for under $25.

Of course there is no inflation.

Miss Marple 2

DrJ,

We have one winery close by. They are very nice people and have a wonderful tasting room with POLITE people who help you understand.

Unfortunately, most of the wines they produce are too sweet for my taste.

The other winery nearby, down toward Bloomington (IU territory) produces the same type of sweet wines. My nieces love it, but then they are the types to drink choclatinis.

Jack is Back!

DrJ,

The Hong Kong factor. When they buy up 90% of the harvest, the other 10% is over priced as a result. That is what I understand.

Also, as you know, weather and the vendange has a lot to do with pricing.

DrJ

MM,

I understand about your current circumstances, but if you can, do spend a week in Sonoma or El Dorado counties and drink wine and eat great food. Napa of course has great, great wines, but they have gotten terribly expensive. The staff there also tends to be incredibly arrogant, and a lot of the patrons are a**holes.

Sonoma and El Dorado are much lower key and less expensive, while still having really good product. We'll probably try Mendocino next, as there is creeping "Napaism" in Sonoma county too.

For us, there are about 40 wineries within a half hour drive. If you extend that to an hour, the number roughly doubles.

I realize that this is pretty unique to CA.

MaryD

We are having lobster salad, tomatoes, and deviled eggs (thanks to some inspiration provided by Beasts). It's very warm here in New Hampshire (I would actually call it Hot), so the cold stuff will hit the spot. Happy fourth to all!

And happy wine drinking too!

I tried a Pinot Noir recently but found it had a sour taste.
My friends loved it.

Marlene
I would love to be sitting on a porch up in Maine right now!
Of course, first if MaryD allowed I would stop by her house in New Hampshire for some of that Lobster salad and deviled eggs😀
I always include yellow mustard in my deviled eggs.

MaryD

Dr. J -- I think you could have a great second career reviewing wineries and their staffs!! I for one would definitely subscribe to your newsletter!

Marlene

MaryD,the daughter and son-in-law are in NH this week-end. I spent some time with them yesterday. Today they went up the tramway on Cannon Mt. What a perfect day for visibility. They went around the lake to Wolfeboro this afternoon. If it wasn't for Wolfeboro,she wouldn't be here,ha. That is where hubby and I met.

DrJ

JiB,

Hong Kong? I had never thought about that. Good for them, I suppose, but it truly is a shame about Trimbach pricing. For us, $25 puts it in the "special" category, and it is even difficult to find it in stock locally.

Manuel Transmission

Back from our parade. One of the few times a year I take a lot of pix, even though I rarely show any of them. However, it makes me drag my 'big Mac' back from the shop and do some photo work, so here goes a few from today and over the last few days.

The parade was pretty much the usual small town America event that we've enjoyed for 20+yrs here.. Pleasant temps and thin sun breaks. One guy with a kid's wagon was all dressed up with the usual patriotic bunting and a sign on one side that said "TRUMP punching America in the face with a tiny little hand" and the other side said "Hillary . . . Never . . . Now more THAN ever." Not sure what the end point was supposed to be.

The DemoRATS made a big show, but based on the crowd cheers, I'd say about 10% actually gave them any notice.

Here was a typical entrant with an unintended flapping of their banner. :)

Question?

If the wikileaks releases their Clinton emails in a forest, does any one hear them?

I don't see them mentioned anywhere.

cathyf

I picked 5 quarts of blueberries this morning. It was overcast and almost chilly here, about 60, and it was nice to not worry about bugs and sunburn. I picked 3 quarts on Friday, and they were already gone, LOL!

Porch, I know this is too late for today's potluck, but for anyone looking for a fabulous and easy dish, I offer

Can-Opener Cuisine One-Bean salad:

Open the following cans: cut green beans, quartered artichoke hearts, small black olives, asparagus, sliced or tiny whole mushrooms. Drain and rinse. (I use my salad spinner, and fill and dump out 2-3 changes of water, and then spin it mostly dry.) Dump all the veggies in a bowl, and pour on your favorite Italian vinaigrette dressing.

Use a large bowl with a tight-fitting plastic lid if you have it. Then you can toss the salad by shaking the bowl. If you make your own dressing, leave the salt entirely out, and then you don't have to be so thorough in rinsing the veggies.

I usually use the same number of cans of each veggie -- I have a pretty big bowl so I use two of each. If you are using the typical little cans of mushrooms, use two of those cans for each one of the other stuff.

Bring a slotted spoon along to serve the salad. I buy those at the dollar store so I'm not heartbroken if the spoon disappears.

I tell my bachelor friends that this is the perfect dish for someone who can't cook and wants something that looks and tastes good. All you need to know is how to work a can opener!

And finally for now, Midsummer Sunrise. I love our sunrises. With no blinds on our glass wall the light usually wakes me enough to catch most of the good ones. Then it is catch up time on JOM, or another couple hours of snooze, if I feel the need.

DrJ

MaryD,

Thanks for the compliment! Some things are better left as avocations, and I think wine is one of those.

People are really funny about wine. There is this mystique around them, and many are very willing to tell you that they know everything there is to know. Yuck! Find a few things you like, explore, and you'll find varietals or blends or regions that you like.

A lot of the staff in tasting rooms are not really that good. They serve the product as they are expected to, but have little understanding of the wine and how it compares to others. They are there to sling the swill for those looking to get a buzz. There are a lot of those sorts of clients.

Fortunately, you also find some who really love the business. There was a fixture in the tasting room at Alexander Valley Vineyards who was great. After we chatted a bit, you could tell that he really enjoyed talking with people who weren't there simply to guzzle it down before heading off to the next stop.

During one visit, he pulled out five glasses to do a vertical tasting of their flagship wine, a Cyrus. It is very good, but not worth the money in my book (usually about $70). In any event, a vertical tasting is when you take the same wine and taste various vintages. It is really amazing at how different they are, both due to aging and the inevitable year-to-year crop variability.

And he refused to accept their usual tasting fee, which included very few of the things he poured. (Yes, we did buy a few bottles, and most places waive their fees in that case.) Sadly, he now has retired, though overall their staff is pretty good.

You also can get tips on which newer or less-known wineries are worth visiting. Those leads for us invariably have been great.

Overall, you can learn a great deal by just engaging with the tasting room staff if they are good. That works really well for the less trendy and snooty areas.

It also helps a lot if you visit when the tasting room is not terribly crowded. It is the kiss of death to see a tour bus or three full of Japanese tourists pull in. Usually we just leave, for it is not worth staying.

rse

lyle-rosso di montalcino is how I taught red about wine. Love brunellos but it is a special treat.

I make a mean pasta bolognese with all three meats where you cook out first the milk and then the white wine. It's the kids favorite thing for me to cook and why I caved in to buy the 13.5 qt le creuset so I could triple the recipe. Red brought friends home from college and I got several different chiantis and a rosso so they could do a flight of Italian with it and begin to appreciate wine was not just another way to drink at a frat party.

Sounds fabulous, rse. Yum.

Is El Dorado County better than Amador County Doc?
Not being a wine drinker I don't know, but we did nearly buy a 40 acre vineyard in Amador's Shenandoah Valley about 20 years ago.

Great, DrJ. If we ever have a chance to sip some wine I'll open an aged Brunello di Montalcino. Heaven. They certainly aren't cheap but they're not as expensive as a lot of CA wine or top cru Bordeaux. Hell, they're not as expensive as a lot of WA wine!

DrJ

Iggy,

I think so. MrsJ and I have only visited Amador once, and our experience wasn't that good. But usually it takes a few visits to discover the gems.

I'm not saying it can't be done but I'm pretty dubious about Durant's fit with the Warriors.

But us regulars know a lot of secret short-cuts and farm roads to get around all that. Lots of nice farm stands on those short cuts for the best in fresh produce.

At least they are not as bad as my parents dog Vickie, whom we kep after my folks went to assisted living.

Vickie would try to hide under the back of the toilet tanks! (This was not really good since she was an Australian shepherd and not toy size.)

If she was outside she would jump the fence and run down the street and hide in the creek under the bridge, coming back all shaking and wet.

She was really sensitive to noise. She was the first alert on a coming thunderstorm, as she would be trying to hide about 20 minutes before the first thunder.
