I generally buy NZ over Aussie, but for no real reason. It's just that I have a few favourite labels. I have a friend who was in the wine industry for years. You can read his thoughts here.

Kennen sie einen gewissen Ullrich Hauke aus Essen ?
A young German friend who is studying in NZ wrote that.
He knows a guy called Haukey who might be related to you.

Oren,
I too am very sorry for getting off topic.
I think it was Ken's off topic stuff on the TalkBass Nonsense thread that first led me astray. Up until that point of time, I don't think I've ever been off topic on a thread.
Like Anselm (not that guy Anslem) I also try to be a better bassist every day.

All is forgiven, I hope.

There was a scoop of grits that had fallen on my screen and that contributed to my hypo typo. Sorry Anselm.

I know - it's all Ken's fault. I think that maybe he had some grits on his screen too. And you're right, you've never posted an off topic post on any thread that I'm aware of.

Exclamation WARNING! Off topic post.

I've just returned from a concert by the band Simple Folk. They are based in Asheville, in the mountains of North Carolina about 2 hours from me. Very impressive. Great 3 part harmonies and musicianship. The bass player played a 5 string Lakland through a small combo amp that I didn't recognize the name on. Pretty good bassist. Unusual playing area on the neck. I'd say that he played 80% of the tunes at, and mostly above the 9th fret and a lot at the double dots, very high up the neck. To each his own I guess. Didn't have to stretch his left arm much.

Ken once told me that, on a site like this, you post something then someone else replies.
He said that, if you keep posting, who are you talking to?


You see, I do listen to what Ken says. Lol!
...and sometimes I even use his favourite humour indicator.

Simple Folk? Not a great name. Doesn't make them sound very bright.
There was once a trio Down here (NZ) called 'Opus 3'.
Some people referred to them as the 'hopeless three'.
Well, they weren't very good.

Edisodic must be a native word for NZ and/or RP. Please explain.

Well my gritless friend, I think that in many cases, you are talking to your super-ego, Count My Bassie Notes. You dig?

Don't you mean listen to some of what Ken says?

Okay, my friend with a taste for unconventional food, I admit that Ken made a mistake once - I'm talking about post #59.
