    Welcome to the boards, Jim! Next time you're going to stop by the High West warehouse, let me know. I'm on the road a lot of the time, but find myself at the office at least one week a month.

    Lesson #1 if you're employed in the distilling business:

    Just for you I'm changing my avatar. It's a photo of my Dawg, VIVI ('viv-vee') who's daddy was UGA VI. Her brothers were VII & VIII, and her lineage goes all the way back to UGA I.
