Re: NEWBIE INTRO: A Thing of Beauty

I was one of the guinea pigs for Linda’s/Shawnda’s beard oils and can attest that they are awesome. Smoothes our the beard hair without a greasy feeling and the understated aromas, which dissipate shortly after application, are very pleasant!

Re: Honeymoon plans: help me make a decision

Thanks all. South of France sounds like an option but we both also wanted to focus on a more renowned wine region. Since we would get our fill of beach and sun in south of Spain, we’d be ok with a more “verdant” scenery in France. But definitely will keep the south in contention.

Re: Why Should Newly Releasd Wines Cost More Than 18 Year Old Whisky?

I think Leo hit the nail somewhat on the head (even if he got the grain wrong.....at least when it comes to Scotch). To his points, I’ll add that most whisky (and even bourbon) houses are of an age where they’ve recouped sunk-in costs so they can afford to price their products at lower numbers.
