Why on earth do I have a picture of a wine barrel posted on the site today?

It’s because I’m a new soon-to-be regular wine columnist for Dan’s Papers!

Still not clear why the barrel is here?

That’s because the name for my column is “Over a Barrel…with Lenn Thompson”

Pretty cool huh?

It may not appear for another couple of weeks, but everything seems to be in place and in motion for it to happen. I’ll probably write my first submission this weekend!

Just want to mention the women that are making it all possible as well…

First…to Susan, my editor…thank you for the opportunity and for helping me hone the articles I’ve already written for you…

And to Nena…thank you, as always, for your unwavering support (and the gentle nudges now and then too!).
