Why do I actually bother thinking about this stuff instead of putting my feet up and stuffing my mouth with bloody chunks of meat and Gargantuan glugs of wine and enjoying life?

I guess if we work at it we could reduce it to two descriptors. It sucks. It doesn't suck. Much easier, lots less space taken on the board, And, of course, voiding of the reason most of us look in here from time to time - to absorb the wisdom of the great ones, including the great Musaraholic.

Never forget that wine is the one beverage that appeals to all the sensory organs, including (especially?) the brain.
Also try to remember that beneath it all, wine is only grape juice. But it rocks.
