business news in context, analysis with attitude

There's been no time for books, movies or even TV shows (not even the new season of "House of Cards," I'm afraid), so I have little to offer you this week.

But...I can recommend to you the Erath 2016 Oregon Rosé of Pinot Noir, which was just delicious when I had it this week ... of course, it helped that I was in Seattle, was sitting at the bar at Etta's, the wine was being poured by my friend Morgan, and I was chowing down on Tom Douglas' fabulous tuna sashimi with green onion pancakes. It's been a crazy week, but it was good to grab a few minutes for a taste of the good life.



I've been listening to Glen Campbell's new - and last - album, made up of a bunch of standards - "Funny How Time Slips Away," "Everybody's Talkin'," "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" - that he apparently loved to sing but never recorded.

It is a bittersweet album. Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer's, and is now at the point where he cannot speak and does not understand speech. But in this album, his voice is in amazing form. (There was an excellent documentary about how he grappled with the disease called Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me, which I reviewed about 18 months ago, and that I also recommend.)

The album is called "Adios," which also happens be the last song. Touching, sentimental stuff.



That's it for this week.

Have a great weekend.

Sláinte!!
