Off to dinner. Back for the launch. 6:56. You can probably catch it on NASA TV. Not certain since it is a military launch and not NASA.

New Zealand’s prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, says she told the US president, Donald Trump, to show all Muslim communities “sympathy and love” when he asked what he could do in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque attacks.

She made the pointed comments in a press conference held as she prepared to travel to Christchurch early on Saturday morning, local time.

A question for Lyle, or other oenophile.

"Join us this weekend for a vertical tasting of our Estate Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noirs."

If I went on a tasting for CH's high-alcohol-content beers, I think it would soon devolve to a horizontal tasting....
What is a "vertical" tasting?

Also, what was the phrase from last topic, something about adding a $350 blouse to your "shirt rotation"? Was it "shirt rotation" or some other phrase?

Thanks in advance.

Photo although a bit unclear. Video from earlier in the month.

Why can't she just come out for 5 minutes, pose for a few photos, and answer a couple of questions?

DrJ

"Vertical tasting" means trying the same wine (or other booze) as a function of time. So you might try a Pinot from 2001, 2005, 2010, 2015 and 2018.

They taste very different, and it is well worth doing. The difference is in the aging and the quality of the crop for that year.

People are going to have to make up their minds to whether or not music and videos inspire people. We're supposed to believe $100k in FB ads threw the election to Trump. We're supposed to believe Black Lives Matter doesn't inspire cop murder.

Thank you for that information wrt wine tasting.

There were two white looking dudes from Christchurch who changed their names to Mohamed something who got drone struck with ISIS in 2014 but I'm sure they didn't learn hate at that mosque.

DrJ

MR,

You're welcomed!

I didn't mention it directly, but I really do mean the same wine. So it is the same in name and processing -- the only variable is time.

The Sonoma wineries have been pretty good about this. Once the tasting room people know that you are not idiots out to get booze for the day, often they do this for you. Alexander Valley Vineyards is one that has been notable.

I was wondering if you had any thoughts on HG Wells as a proponent of Eugenics, the philosophy that would eventually be called Technocacy and as a shill for the literal New World Order?

Captain Hate

What DrJ described works for *some* beers too. In fact a place close to me, The Wine Spot, had a vertical tasting in October for Bell's Expedition Stout featuring four different years of an imperial stout. The current year tasted so good (they gave generous pours) that I was prepared to be slightly disappointed but the hops faded in each successive year and what started out as a bitter dark chocolate taste became more like milk chocolate with some other dark fruit flavors being more forward.

There's a method to their offerings since I now have a sixer cellaring for future consumption.

the Lili-beth, you are a welcome addition. I take it you are another Elizabeth by name? My wife is the Flemish variety of Elisabet.

People on my Vet's exchange all agree that the military command structure was completely compromised under Bush and Obama. West Point, Annapolis, and the AFA have become Pet.ie dishes of left-wing orthodoxy in the Military at the command ranks. One thing Trump can do is reform the academies to their once non-PC curriculum and culture. Until then we are screwed.

D,

When he gets back to campus around the 1st of April. It will be tough for him since the other kids are seasoned, and he is just now starting to play real golf instead of fooling around on the course with me when younger. He is working on it with our Pro, but it will be surprising if he makes it. He always has Lacrosse.

Message from Yale President:

The FBI investigation has revealed that a Yale coach gave bogus athletic endorsements to two students, one of whom was admitted to Yale College. (For more information, please see this FAQ.) When applicants sign their applications, they attest that the contents are true and complete. Although I do not comment on specific disciplinary actions taken with respect to an individual student, our longstanding policy is to rescind the admission of students who falsified their Yale College applications.

Plus new audit of athletics and admissions.
