    I don't understand why drinking French wine brought my score down. Just look at what it says under Sauvignon Blanc here: http://news.hardrockhotels.com/wine-...-beyond-plate/

    "Sauvignon Blanc
    Sauvignon blanc is known for having more of a “grassy” taste with hints of lime, green apple, and white peach. It is full of rich and complex flavors that can range from lime to a more floral taste. To match this earthy flavor, it only makes sense to pair this wine with bluegrass music. Sauvignon blanc always takes us back to the countryside, making us think of carefree, open fields. Pair this wine favorite with Alison Krauss, Bill Monroe, or Jimmy Martin and let the music (and the wine) take you back."

    -50. Just never been that interested in bluegrass. As for instruments plugging in. None of my mandolins, but 4 of my 5 acoustic guitars can (and have). Makes it easier to play contra dances or back up fiddlers in contests.

    -70 because of the C#°7 often played before the D-7 and G7b9 on my Mandobird. 😶

    I broke even, the French wine put me to 0.

    I do have nine pieces of grilling and smoking equipment. But, that was not a factor.

    As my grade school teachers used to say; "Not good Mr. Zito, not good at all!"
    I recently finished a new homemade 4-song EP of original solo acoustic songs; (sorry, no mandolin content this time). If you are interested in a FREE copy, feel free to send me your address via Private Message, and I will be glad to send you one. Trust me, it will be worth the price!

    Tried to take survey. Computer burst into flames.
    It is the jigsaw. It is purple haze.
    It never stays in one place, but it's not a passing phase,
    It is in the singles bar, in the distance of the face
    It is in between the cages, it is always in a space
    It is here. It is now.

    Minus 40. But I like Bluegrass. Do I really need to start calling my dogs Earl? Both of them?
