Foie Gras Fears

21 February 2017 - 10:57 PM

Uh oh...

 

 

The bird flu epidemic in southwest France, home to most duck and foie
gras producers, has led to more than three million poultry being killed
and its rapid expansion is making producers fear the worst for the
region's entire flock.

France and Hungary have been the countries hardest hit by the highly
contagious H5N8 avian flu virus that has been spreading across Europe
as well as Middle eastern countries in the past three months.

Foie gras producers estimated the number of poultry killed or culled
due to bird flu in France at more than 3.2 million birds by Wednesday
and forecast this would reach 3.4 million as the government extended
the slaughtering area.

Prefab Shelving (for wine storage)

15 February 2017 - 09:48 PM

I'm seeing lots of online sites advertising prefab shelving for wine storage.

Does anyone here have any suggestions/recommendations as to which would be the best source/approach for prefab wine shelving for a, say, 5' x 8' closet-type storage area with 10' ceiling?

I'm receptive to there being some assembly by me or by a hired carpenter/installer.

The shelving I presently have was built from scratch on premises to my specs by a VERY skilled carpenter; however, I was hoping to learn of a viable approach that would be "handier".

Thanks for any thoughts!

NY shipping litigation

06 February 2017 - 11:05 PM

I just received this notice written by a retailer that...

 

 

The State of NY has hit UPS and Fed Ex with litigation regarding wine shipments into their state that NY claims is illegal. This litigation has UPS’s corporate legal team spooked and as a result I can no longer ship to these states anymore; NY,


I haven't found anything else about the litigation online.

Does anyone have a link for further info?

Across the metro, restaurants are recognizing Instagram not just as a powerful social media tool, but as a force driving marketing and design decisions.
