2. Stronger...

I, myself, and my SO have been doing everything possible to keep the wine sales and winery's profitable every night of the last 50+ years.



And yeah, I'll drink to that!

4. If you drink, and it causes serious problems in your life, and you keep

drinking, you are an alcoholic. I've heard of people, a family, where the father and older children became alcoholics quite young. The younger child never had a drink and joined AA anyways and went to meetings. I've been sober almost 10 years.

5. Right now I don't care.....climate change, Repubs gerrymandering all areas of the country so we're

gonna be set back 100 years, one damn “democrat” has so much power to run the Senate and the POTUS agendas just because he says no. So yes, I’m drinking, if it kills me, then fine, I won’t be here when I don’t have clean water to drink, or my duly elected POTUS has no power and my weather is so weird it does more damage then the previous 100 years.

9. I feel you friend

I don't have much hope for the future

My dream is that I reach my 80s before Climate Change makes the world 100% unlivable and then go out with my final words being "I told you so"
