Memorial Day 2017

The blog is off today for the Memorial Day holiday, but will return tomorrow with our usual features. Until then, Chuck Norris for the holiday, from the first season of “Walker, Texas Ranger,” which was shot in Dallas. We we would see Chuck around town all the time when the series was in production; I think this scene was shot at the Galleria shopping mall in north Dallas.

Happy New Year 2017

The blog is off today for New Year’s, but will return tomorrow with our usual features, plus the fourth annual Do-It-Yourself New Year’s wine resolutions on Thursday and the 2017 $10 Hall of Fame on Friday.

Today, in honor of New Year’s and my beloved and world champion Chicago Cubs, this 1988 interview — if you can call it that — with the late Cubs announcer Harry Caray and Cubs fan extraordinary Bill Murray. Video courtesy of DNAinfo Chicago at YouTube.

Happy New Year from the Wine Curmudgeon.

Memorial Day 2016

The blog is off today for the Memorial Day holiday, but will return tomorrow with our usual features. Today, Joshua Chamberlain and the charge of the 20th Maine at Little Round Top at Gettysburg, perhaps the most important battle in the Civil War and in the history of the United States.
