New on the Gypsy!

Just a quick head's up, in case you haven't noticed it already!

On my black menu bar underneath my blog banner, I have added a link to Cork Poppers posts. For those new to the Gypsy, Cork Poppers is the wine group I happily attend every couple of months.We taste a variety of wines from all over the world and eat well, too! And the table decorations aren't so bad either!

In the Cork Popper posts you'll find our regular cast of characters (and some really are characters!). We aren't wine experts -- we just want to learn a little more about wine and enjoy tasting and finding new favorites. We taste six or seven wines each session -- usually with a regional theme but occasionally it will be something like "Wines for Thanksgiving" or "Wine for a Summer Night."

I decided to put the page up, partly because I was having trouble finding my own posts and I wanted to refer back to them when heading to the store! I thought maybe it would help others new to the Gypsy or who, like me, just wanted to remember something from long ago

Posts are listed by category (French, German, Italian, etc.) with links to the original post. Each post includes a photo of the wine bottle and the price at the time of the post. Bear in mind that a great 2010 vintage from one winery, for example, might not be as great in 2014! And it may be more expensive as economies fluctuate.

But they can give you an idea of what our wacky group thinks and if you're ever short of wine ideas, it's a spot to start!

Check it out if you enjoy wine! And cheers!

Jeanie, I noticed the new tab and I think it's a great addition. I think our blogs should be easy to navigate for our own benefits as much as our readers. I do love your cork Poppers posts too.

Fun! That is a great idea to put all those posts in an area that is easy for readers (and you!) to find! I need to do that myself for some categories!

Great idea, Jeanie! I'm such an inept wine buyer, and that will be a great resource. Thanks!

I love it when people celebrate wine as much hearty joy and aliveness about it all.
I seriously love the way you
are all in
about your life:)
Inspires me more than you know.
Gorgeous images and your spirit
saturates the atmosphere with energizing light:)

Great idea, Jeanie. I always enjoy your Cork Popper posts. Now I can find them easily if I want to refer back to them.

I love that picture of you at the end of this post. I am laughing too because I have just watched a YouTube video on adding those tabs.
and then I come here and you have done the same.

That's great! I'd love to learn more about wine honestly speaking. I can't tell much of what differences they have, I just can tell which one I would drink more and not :)

Cute photo of you and your vino and the shadow through the wine glass is lovely too.
Glad we are not the only ones that take time to enjoy 'views' like that ;-)
