Well, I'm back from France. I haven't been able to post for the past couple of months because my schedule was so busy there (mainly traveling, I admit), but it was really a great experience. I learned a bunch about wine and realized that I want to give it a go as a career, too. Anyway, I'm glad to be back with you fellas and ladies.

Welcome back. I think you'll have a head start on a career in wines. Good luck!

A hearty HI-THERE Joeyz6 and could tell you were having a ball. Glad you've decided on a career of crime...OOPPS, I mean wine. Catch us up on your travels. WW

Hey, we only have one go in this life -- go for your dreams......

Which branch of the wine business interests you?

Welcome back, Joey!

I see you're on the North Side in Evanston. I don't know if I mentioned that I split time growing up in Wisc. and in suburban Chicago -- Palatine, to be exact. Leaving Fr. must have been hard, but you're returning to a real nice city, too.

Also, good luck with your new career pursuits.

Welcome back, Joe. And don't overlook Foodie's question...

Welcome home--congrats on the exciting realization!

I'm most interested in being a sommelier or maybe owning a wine bar someday.

Dananne, that's cool that you are familiar with the area. I've actually never been to Palatine but I think we played against them in some sporting events in high school.

As for my travels, WW, during the last two or three months I was in Southern Italy (Rome, Naples, Capri, Pompei, etc.), London, Brussels, and Paris. I made wine-tasting trips to Epernay, Beaune and Sancerre.
