Off for the weekend

As you may know, it has been a crazy couple of days for the vlm and the VLM-TR has experienced tons of new traffic. I hope those folks have found something they like and/or think is useful.

I'm off to spend the weekend with friends up in Reno. We like to drink, so there should be some good updates when I get back, if I survive...

Okay, I have to ask, who are you????


You have been on the blogosphere here for a very short time and everyone has you on their blogroll. Do you know a whole lotta people in the so-called wine world?

Inquiring minds want to know! :)

Do I hear you calling for a blog-off? A blog-down?

You trying to say I don't understand the blog world because I don't live here?

CNSmith said...

What's a blogroll?

Does it go with coffee or Gamay?

Glad to hear you've landed safely

I gotta admit, I'm not really sure what a blog roll is either. My guess is that it is the list of other blogs at your blog.*** Is there some way to find out what blog rolls I'm on?

I only did this to prove a point to Thor, but it has ended up being a nice outlet for tasting notes and other stuff. I'm not dising blogs or anything like that, but I don't get a lot of my information from blogs and rarely read them; thus, ***.

*** A question of etiquette. When someone links to my blog, am I obligated to link to theirs even if I don't read it? It may be that the blog is really good, but it's just that I only have so much time in the day.

Dear Nathan,

You sure have a lot to learn about logrolling.

Everyone knows lyle. He pisses people off with his strong and often misguided musings on wine.

Just kidding, Lyle what's up? I left New York for state controlled liquor authority (in philly). Actually i'm semi-retired from the wine world. Now I chop Cheesesteaks and flip Pies. My bloodpressure has dropped.

Any idea who this is?

Hint: I never got my '89 Raffault or '04 Papin from Crush. . ..

Vulgar Little Monkey,

Hmmm... you sidestepped my question!

That's okay.... I don't know if there is a way you can find out who has you on their blogroll. I thought blogroll was a normal word here; perhaps I made it up.

Anyway, I think re: your etiquette question - NO you don't have to - it's kind of like when someone gets married and asks you to be the best man, does that mean he has to be your best man when you get married? I don't think so. Just do what you want.

"Is there some way to find out what blog rolls I'm on?" is one I use. I'm sure there are others.

Is that you Welder?

Cliff said...

Hey, wasn't this last weekend??

the vlm said...


Didn't mean to sidestep. I've been in and around the wine business my entire adult life, so yeah, I do know quite a few people.


Landed safely, but soon to take off back to Durham, this time working for Duke. Crazy, huh?


I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK.


Thanks for the tip.


New post is up. Expect a post next week on 2004 Belliviere Jasniers.

Cliff said...

Great -- thanks!

Um, I'm really happy you're blogging. (Truly. No snark here.) But if you think sporadically posting to an unedited blog has anything to do with what I was saying in that long-ago and mostly-forgotten argument, you didn't understand a thing. Unfortunately.
