His music from the good the bad and the ugly, especially at the movie's climax is what made that movie a legend. In getting goosebumps just remembering that scene and his music.

Wild Williams vs methodical and calculated Kerber. Both were really good. Congrats to the winner.

Cleo, that's the spirit. Don't buy something because it's fashionable, but because it's of quality or because you simply like it. This works very well with wines.
For all that matters, my favorite table wine of the past months is "Apothic Dark". You can find it online or at Yamaya, and it's an extraordinary good blend for its price ;) .

Nope, but the best Cabernet Sauvignons are grown there, to compensate. Not a lot great Pinot Noir is grown in France as well, most of it comes with defects. The most over rated wine ever.

Sfjp, because the know nothing hoi-polloi will buy even vinegar if it says on the bottle "chateau whatever"made in France. As a rule, pay AT LEAST two times as more for a French wine if you want the same quality as a Chilean wine.

This is how your tax money get wasted , folks. Even Russia is better at this point. At least they have customers for their war technologies.

80 something years young people can be perfectly capable to drive. I do hope he renews his license three years later, not making this his last.

I tend to place investment forecasts and horoscope on the same position. Both are entertaining and none actually know what's going to happen. The authors make good money in both, selling BS they can't be held accountable for later.

Karl, the problem with bluetooth networks is not the transmission (bluetooth), but the limit is imposes on the amplifier. In other words, you're normally forced to use the onboard amplifier (usually a small, lowish quality one), and there's no way around that. Good wired phones, coupled with a high performance headphone amp and source are by far of better quality.

Asiangaijin I dare say you don't know how things work in Asia, do you? I mean, this discussion should have finished some 40 years ago, but it seems that korea will blackmail Japan for as long as they can. Wanna bet that they'll again demand money some 20 years in the future?

Did anyone noticed how they released this on year's end, hoping it will pass unnoticed? The real reason he got fired was because he exposed the ways his association works, never for the laborers, always for the company passing these losers.
“My true intention was to shock employees who have troubled their companies and superiors with attitudes that are out of line, and to straighten them.”
Was that his task, given by some superior in his association?

Yubaru, please remember that Japan has thousands of miles of seashore, it's impossible to guard them all against intruding vessels (especially small sized boats).

Really a sad way to go, she was quite famous in Japan. I guess she thought it safe to detach from the line, but still, I think it was an unnecessary risk. There are better ways to deal with privacy issues on a mountain.
