But, PLEASE not for me.

For a start those glasses are WAY too small. These must be for those that are just starting. Though I only, usually, drink but one glass of 50:50 diluted red wine a day, I like my wine glasses to be robust. So these are way too small.

Second they would NOT work. Obviously the copywriters at H-S are not serious drinkers. IF they were they would realize that this supposedly mirthful ‘trick’ only works if you are sober. If you are suitably drunk these glasses will appear fully upright. Trust me. I know this stuff.

Click to access video at the U.K. “BBC”. Beautiful video. Stirring music. British pomp.

One of these Red Poppies is mine!

Deanna paid for it way back in August — as a birthday present for me.

They are going to start uprooting the Poppies on November 12, 2014.

They will start shipping them in January 2015.

I received the above e-mail, from Anthony Melchiorri, on Tuesday night.

He has done the RIGHT THING. This was what I expected and wanted him to have done. Now I know and now YOU know.

How we got to this point is that the show did not at ANY POINT inform us that Anthony contacted the authorities. Deanna makes a point of carefully reading the closing credits where Anthony talks about how things progressed after the show and there was NO mention that Anthony had contacted the authorities.

Well, Anthony Melchiorri has put me right and I am going to update my original post to reflect this. I have no axe to grind in this. I just wanted, as ever, for the right thing to be done.

I e-mailed Anthony back that while I will update my post, he, at a minimum, should put something up on their Website so others will know that he did what we expected him to have done.

As would be said in the Tintin comics “All’s well that ends well” — though I have to believe that the Lodge owner is livid.

Mr. Melchiorri’s stock is no longer in negative territory when it comes to me. I am actually impressed. Well done.

After Anthony’s e-mail, and after I finished bit more on my book, I did some Googling on “Woodstock Lodge”.

Yelp has quite a few posts that talk about the “Hotel Impossible” episode. Thanks to a link on one of the Yelp posts I found this newspaper article that confirmed, 100%, what Anthony Melchiorri stated:
