Wow, it's been more than a week since I posted anything here. It's been a busy week at work, at home -- our Sophia caught her first cold bug -- , and I've been helping setting up WineXiles, our new wine forum.
The heritage of WineXiles can be summarized with the following words, which was written so eloquently by a fellow forumite, GK:
WineXiles began as a refuge for a group of "exiles" from an old forum. In May 2006, when the community on that board became a little too rambunctious for its owner, the old forum was unceremoniously closed down. Cut adrift, the core group of regular posters decided to create its own forum here -- one that would be open to a broader range of posts both on and off the topic of wine, without strict posting rules or heavy-handed moderators.
We are spirited, we are rambunctious, and doggone it, we love wine! I highly recommend visiting the forum at www.winexiles.com if you are interested in discussing or learning about wines with a very hospitable group of people from all over the USA.
