All ideas are good ideas. Just depends on what you do with them and how they are treated. Sort of like people. Charles Meyers, a truly jolly old soul, thought that the idea of a gull with grapes in its beak was swell, but his daughter thought it was corny. So, to delight per and twit fils, I took the idea and ran with it.

Harbor Winery is an unassuming operation, run out of a corrugated iron warehouse in the dusty industrial section of West Sacramento, not an area noted for its vintages. But they make a good solid vino tavola, and I like it and the label tells the truth about it. When you get right down to it, presenting a truthful exterior is probably more important than the possible greatness of what may be inside. All wines are good wines. Just depends on the food and the company.
