I'm sure this happens to you every day, you are sitting at home downloading some Live Rolling Stones tracks when the phone rings. At the other end is a partner in a major Canadian company who immediately says "Hey, how many points did Kelly Kisio score in his career?"
I give a low ball answer, and Major Company Partner replies that "Other Major Company VP" said Kisio had "like 800 career points" - I google Mr. Kisio and determine that his career point total was, in fact, 658.
We bounce back and forth on Kisio's career before I ask "Do you know where he was born?"
MCP replies "Calgary - right ?"
"No, Wetaskawin" I answer
"Oh that's where WP Kinsella was born" replies MCP
It's good to know that two scions of industry rely heavily on a waiter for their vital life information.
Had a decent bottle of Italian red last week, a Montepulciano D'Abbruzzo, Caldora, 2005.
Back in the day Montepulciano D'Abbruzzo were always cheap and provided a nice inexpensive alternative to Chianti, but as with most things Italian the prices have gone up rapidly over the past 3 years and now most decent ones are in the $15 range. Typical of the variety the Caldora is medium bodied with nice herbal notes and a bit of dried cherry in the taste, the acidity level is fine for battling it out with Pizza/Pasta or grilled poultry.
There is limited stock on this product as it is currently discounted by a buck to $9.95 but if you find it grab a couple of bottles - CSPC#418335.
