Thank you for the notes, Tom.

Never had a Fara - definitely one my list, however. This is not a DOC that you find every day. Too bad that the Dessilani was a disappointment.

"Off to KC--no BP today"

12th St. and Vine, a bottle of Kansas City Wine?
I don't know just how I'm supposed to play this scene, but I ain't afraid to learn...
