    Very nice, JP. Thanks for the pix. Reminds me of one of Keanu Reeves' films (forgot the name), was filmed in Napa valley ...

    Man I have been eating and drinking waaaay too much. I hooked up with 4 of my buddies over the last few days or so and they are all looking "Portly". 1 has poured on the weight. Everywhere we met for lunch was way to much food per serving. I always use the fist portion size rule. Most plates of food could easily feed 2+ people and most were huge calorie buster foods.

    I know this has been discussed numerous times but people generally speaking seem all over weight. I guess it is what it is but man I sure miss my small portions and better food in Thailand.

    I still have 3 weeks to go on this trip including a wedding where I am the best man. Avoiding food and booze is going to be tough.

    Yeah Trader Joe's would be cool. Problem would be the price of all they would import to stock. That said I do not miss much in regards to American snack foods. I am enjoying some good Tortilla chips and a few cheeses.

    Had lunch with a long time friend. He said I am to young to retire and need to work. I laughed. He then tossed a job proposal at me. I laughed again. While the proposal was interesting it would require a move back to Calif and I really am not interested in living back here at all. While sure Thailand has some challenges they pale in comparison as to what it takes to live here. All the colleague friends I have caught up with on this visit work 50 to 60 hrs a week and then work at home a bit. They all cram life into weekends.

    No wonder that selection is in a locked case. I'd probably be looking at the bottles on the bottom shelf.

    I don't know much about alcohol, but that looks like quality stuff. I'm kind of curious JP [you don't mind if call you JP do you?] Growing up in rural Ohio we used to see stories on the evening news about wild and crazy hippies in California. They were a long haired people that smoked weeds. Not sure of the spelling but I think it was called marijuana? My question is do you still have hippies in California and are they still smoking that "evil weed"? Quality stuff or that garbage that comes over the border from Mexico?

    Hello Tunk,
    JP is fine. No worries.

    As to your question... Yes Hippies still exist in the Santa Cruz mountain areas. It's a lifestyle choice. Many still sport long hair etc. UCSC has always been considered a Hippie College. As for dope, people grow their own and its gooooood stuff. Nowadays most have Marijuana Cards and go to dispensaries to pick the strain they want. I smoked dope when I was younger and we always got it from friends that grew it. While it used to be taboo to talk about it, now it's just normal day to day life for most and now people "Vap" with E cigs.

    Oh Yeah. I can browse for an hour in the Bourbon/Whiskey section reading reviews. While many typically mix, I prefer neat to enjoy the complex smell and taste. I wouldn't buy a $100 or more bottle and add a mixer. You save that for the $30 to $40 bottle. Choices indeed
