Ran across this topic whenced I hit the wrong button and got another site that is rite below ours on my menu and can't believe that we're actually spending my and your taxpayers money on such Bull-Hockaday. They contend that alla' youse baby-boomers done' have the staying power you once had and can't handle more than a glass a day without serious health consequences. One of the board members made the observation that he was 70 or close and he was prone sometimes to drink a WHOLE bottle over a 5 hour span every now and then. Do you think the weener should join this lively group or just attact the gov't agency directly. For heavens sake until I was 70 I drank a bottle with every lunch and Dinner and then decided I'd better cut it to ONLY a bottle at lunch. Methnks I mite, jes' MITE, skew the outcome. WW

You are commonly referred to as "The Immortal One" WW, so I guarantee you may out live me... due to the fact that your daily intake of resveratrol and polyphenols are substantially higher than mine :-)

The new doc asked a couple of days ago "How much alcohol do you consume?"

"Two glasses of wine with dinner" says I.

"How long have you been doing that?" she asked.

"40+ years" says I.

Didn't mention that the REST of the bottle goes down the hatch AFTER dinner.

When I told my GP that I consume a minimum of one bottle each day he replied: sounds about right to me.

He and I have had many wine conversations...
