Beaujolais Nouveau 2020 Arriverà November 19, COVID-19 Or NO COVID-19.

by Anura Guruge


COVID will NOT deprive us of our beloved Beaujolais Nouveau. That would have been the ultimate setback — even worse that losing Revels.

Beaujolais Nouveau will happen THIS Thursday, November 19, 2020 — as ever, the 3rd Thursday of November.

Yes, I will go & get my customary quota of bottles & REVIEW the wine for YOU. SMILE.

Cheers. Can’t wait. Mouth is already twitching.

Wow. It always gives me goose bumps. President Lincoln — what a writer, what an orator, what a MAN. What a loss. Him 163 years ago and what we have now. But, he always talked about the future. So, we can take heart. November 19. We should pause, remember and reflect.

It is the possession of a title to one of the as such consecrated churches in Rome that makes one a Cardinal. Without a title to a Roman church you cannot be a cardinal.

Think – Today: Why Do Men Have Facial Hair & Women Don’t … Beyond Just Hormones?

by Anura Guruge

il_fullxfull-524575599_pblgIt is easy to just say ‘testosterone’ — but that begs the question as to why testosterone produces profuse facial hair? Was their an evolutionary advantage. Worth thinking about.


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “Consistory” — Comes from the Latin consistorium for ‘sitting together. So it could apply to any group of people sitting together. Since the 10th century (meaning as of 1,100 years AGO), however, the word ‘consistory’ has come to be associated with meeting between the Pope (in Rome) and his Cardinals (i.e., the highest echelons of the Catholic clergy). A consistory is the equivalent of a papal cabinet meeting. At the start, when all the cardinals lived in or around Rome these consistories took place at least once a week. No so anymore. There are essentially two major types of consistory: mandatory (in terms of attendance) and optional (meaning only those that happen to be in Rome need to attend). The pope may convene a mandatory consistory (called ‘extraordinary’) for any number of reasons, to discuss the status of the Church, to formulate future strategy, to discuss a serious transgression or to formalize the Canonization of a major Saint. But, the general media only reports consistories when they involve the creation of new cardinals as was the case on Saturday, November 19, 2016. So many assume that a consistory is just for creating new cardinals. Not so.

Think – Today: What Is A Consistory?

by Anura Guruge


thinktodaybanner
redhatIt will be in the news this weekend, November 19 – 20, 2016. ‘Consistory’. You must have heard the word before. This blog has posts related to it. So what is it?


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “U.S. Presidential inauguration on January 20” — This only came to be as of January 23, 1933 when the Twentieth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified. Prior to that the inaugurations were held on March 4. In the 18th & 19th century logistics meant that the votes cast in November may not be fully counted and validated until December (if not later). Hence the March 4 date. But by 1930s this had become too long a ‘Lame Duck’ period. So the 20th Amendment. It is not documented as to why January 20th was selected. It might have been to coincide with it being the 20th amendment. That would have been cute. It can also be thought of as the last day of the 3rd week in January. The first inauguration after the ratification was in 1937. January 20, 1937 was on a Wednesday.

I could be wrong but I detect a similarity with the Beaujolais Nouveau of 2014 and that is NOT a bad thing because the 2014 was a keeper.

Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2015 has a very fruity aroma. Very inviting. Kind of begging you to taste it.

Rich velvety color. Again extremely beteckning.

WOW! The first sip. Rich in flavor. Fills your whole mouth. Yes, fruity and tart. Sweet, but not that sweet. A biting, edgy sweet. Raspberry? Definitely not strawberry.

Yes, you can feel the tannin BUT in the case of Beaujolais Nouveau you are supposed to.

Yes, there is a definite aftertaste but that too is par for the course.

It goes down EFFORTLESSLY. You could drink a lot of this with relish, hardly noticing that you are imbibing in quantity.

Yes, another keeper. I can’t see much of a difference from last year. To I that is GOOD.

Georges Duboeuf has increased the price by another $1. So now we are at $10.99. Yes, it is worth it.

I like it. My biggest problem is going to control my intake. Yes, I could easily drink a couple of bottles of this now. But I won’t and I can’t. I did buy half a dozen. I will keep at least one for Thanksgiving.

Bottom line. Very good. Very pleasant. A Keeper.

Cheers.

Oh. I bought the 6 bottles from the NH Liquor Outlet in Concord. The main one just below Main Street, next to ‘Burlington Coat Factory‘.

Seems strange that the label used in Japan is different. Check this post.

Since 1am today (Eastern), Beaujolais Nouveau Day 2015, I have NOT being able to access the Georges Duboeuf Website. That seems very strange.

THEN I discovered that they have NOT updated their Twitter feed in 19 hours. So NOTHING on Beaujolais Nouveau Day. Ahh? This was at noon Eastern. So 6pm in France. Not good.

Georges Duboeuf Twitter at noon, Beaujolais Nouveau Day 2015. Last Tweet 19 hours ago. Nothing on the day. No picture of the bottle? WTF. Click to access their Twitter account.
