We hope everyone has been a hanging there through this crisis, we are still here, just an average Yank (proud to be American again) and Limey keeping on.  When you are going through hell, keep on going, and reading, and sipping, and doing whatever it is you need to do. In our case, a Bobal rosé from one of the best winemakers worldwide with broiled salmon and kimchi rice.  A book called Prep, by Curtis Sittingfield, and how brandy can save birds.
