Has anyone gone to the such lengths as branding their corks? I've toyed with the idea but can't see much point as I don't even bother slapping a label or capsule on my plonk. One day however, the urge may strike.

I assume it's just a question of making some sort of wire brander and burning each cork??

Now, Haagen, surely your wine is better than you let on!?

I jest of course Stevey. I've been told that my wine is now achieving prices that I once thought would be impossible. Just the other day I got .50c for a whole bottle of wine

Hey Steve, I've been to Tuscon. You still got them funny looking birds that run around on the ground that get chased by coyotes. They go "beep beep". biggrin.gif

Yup, still have plenty of roadrunners around to fill the pot. I never thought of them as funny looking until now, though. You're right.
Yet the Kookaburras I saw in Sydney were a funny looking lot too!

Nearly pancaked a mangy coyote today on my way down south. Could have sworn a small car was beeping at me at the time yet none were near..........hmmmmmmmm

They're funny but cute. Koobaburras are just plum thick, that's why they laugh at everything. They can't do anything seriously.

That coyote, he wasn't driving a '56 Acme Convertible wuz he? biggrin.gif

Not US$0.50... I haven't expanded my overseas markets just yet but next year could be another story.
