Marta and I popped the Korbel cork early for some old war shows tonight


The only brand of champagne we will buy is Korbel. It is Made in the USA. it also was a shooting location for several episodes of my favorite childhood TV show: COMBAT!

First the David Macklin fan club members across the country watched "The Apartment" on TCM. I've written about David several times. Retired Hollywood liberal. Wonderful person. Now I have COMBAT! on.

That is David on the right:

12. I'm just talking about what it's called. I don't even care for Champagne.

I like more American wines percentage-wise than French wines.

However my favorite wines, come from the Bordeaux region.

14. Here is the best France has to offer




History

The original liqueur created in 1880 by Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle. A delicate blend of fine cognacs and distilled essence of tropical oranges with Marnier-Lapostolle's secret touch. Slow ageing in French oak casks gives it incomparable roundness and subtlety.

8. K&R

Don't know much about wines, sparkling or not. But, Combat was a great series and I too watched it as a kid. Have a couple of boxed sets on Dvd. Might watch one or two episodes today!

18. Marta and I are huge autograph collectors


I have autographs for all the COMBAT! regular cast members except Steven Rodgers. He played Doc in season one. My Vic Morrow is from the estate of a former US ARMY officer. A picture of him with Vic behind the scenes.
