Dehen Signature Varsity V-Neck Pullover:
Thanks a lot Uwe for sending me this great pullover. I saw it this summer when Amtraq was here on the lake and I knew I have to have it. Old school cut, 100% wool and made to last. A perfect product from the USA  available in Amtraq distributed shops.

Armagnac Vaghi 1989

Breaking the tradition of buying a good bottle of Cognac XO for christmas. I went for a Armagnac this year. Armagnac Vaghi sells brandy back to 1928 and probably even older ones are hidden in their cellar. Made from Ugni-Blanc grapes and the rougher not as smooth version of a Cognac, be-cause only distilled once. But after some decades in barrels he will catch up. Sharing with family and friends who will show up. The glass is empty right now, a bit too early. But soon it will be preheated with some hot steam from the espresso machine and filled to Prost with someone. Cu soon.

Free & Magazine Nov. 2012 Gift by Eric Jost:
Friday morning there was a letter from Eric Jost from Life Time Gear in the mailbox. Inside the November Issue of the famous Japanese Free & Easy Magazine. Unfortunately no time to read it be-cause I had to leave to the shipyard. Right after work, without even washing my hands I had to have a closer (and careful) look at it. What a great magazine with images of unique items and characters (e.g. Hajime Tsukada). No way to read the Japanese Text but the images talk for themselves. Thanks Eric for this great gift and inspiration.

Travelling to Italy, food is always one reason why we love this country. Just after the border of Switzerland there comes Varese, and Ristorante Bologna is the place to see and to eat, if you want it rustic and authentic italian. We enjoyed to stay there for two nights and were lucky to get at least one table to celebrate Maria´s birthday and sadly the reservation for the other Birthday guests the next day did not work out so well – anyway, Italy was great, as always.
