Bourbon Hunting – Bottle evaluation guidelines

Bourbon Bourbon Hunting My Philosophy

In case you haven’t noticed, bourbon has become big business over the past several years with some bottles being valued at astronomical amounts. It seems every few days I am asked to evaluate and approximate the value of a bottle of whiskey. They are either bottles from a private collection, something a “friend” found, or […]

Manners, courtesy and being a gentleman

My Philosophy

Oh to be 16, in Paris and on drugs

My Philosophy

Have you ever noticed how many anti-depressants there are on the market? No, seriously, there have to be fifty and that’s an understatement. Now here’s the $64,000 dollar question, why? What purposes do they all serve? To keep us all happy maybe?

History of Stupid People

My Philosophy

The history of the stupid people is as long and rich as any race or culture that exists on earth. Their influence can be found in nearly every ancient and modern civilization.
