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‘.

This is the first this year as far as I recall, but, I could be wrong. Plus, contrary to what folks think I am not always here. They could have snuck in and done some work while I was away. Plus, I don’t get out of bed much before 9:20 am and look outside much before 9:40. As Deanna loves to point out most normal people have got 1/2 morning’s work done before I decide to brave the day. Well, I have never aspired to be normal. 

The road is good. It needed to be graded. If the past Springs are anything to go by we should, in a few weeks, have a full time road crew billeted on the road, for daily attention. But, this year could be different! We will have to wait and see.

Stonewall Road, The BEST Maintained Dirt Road In Alton, If Not New Hampshire, Was Graded AGAIN Yesterday.

November 20, 2012 on Stonewall Road. They tried to get the better of a large boulder buried in the road. The boulder won, quite convincingly. Nature 1 Town of Alton 0. Click to ENLARGE.

The stone is winning. They are backing off.

The winner — THE STONE. Still buried, but knowing them they will be here Friday morning, crack of dawn, with dynamite and a crew of 40.


So that is the second time they have graded Stonewall Road in 42 days. To be fair they didn’t grade all of it, just the 250 yards in front of our house. Yes, we are special, though I wish we weren’t. Water Street didn’t even get a looking. Just the 250 yards in front of our house! 

We have never called up and asked for the road to be fixed. The road is fine — though it should be given the exceptional care it gets. I wear shirts that have more wrinkles than Stonewall Road in front of our house. There is an adage that a ‘starched, well ironed shirt front‘ is the epitome of ‘smoothness‘. Well if you want to see smooth come and see Stonewall Road in front of our house — albeit a few days after they grade, so that the stones they unearth can be buried back in the dirt.

My taxes went up 7% compared to last year. I would much prefer if they reduced my taxes by 7% and didn’t grade the road every 42 days — when the road was perfectly fine to begin with. It is amazing.

Now when I say that this was the second time in 42 days, I could be wrong. It might have been more! They come, sometimes even at night, to work on the road. In the Summer they could be here at 5:30 am. Plus, given that I do get out and about every once in awhile it is possible that they came and did some work that I did not notice.

I don’t want to appear churlish. They are the nicest guys possible and I know that they are doing this to help me out. I thank you. It is just the taxes. I moved from Gilford to here because I could no longer afford the Gilford taxes. I really am in a bind. Oh how I wish they wouldn’t treat me so special.

Happy Thanksgiving.
