Spirits (and mediumship) are my favorite thing to write about.  But I also like another type of spirit – wine.  I got introduced to wine maybe ten years ago through a number of business dinners and the like, and over time have developed a taste for it.  I’ve learned a little about it, but I’m no wine snob, that’s for sure.  My attitude is that there are only two kinds of wine, the kind I like, and the kind I don’t, and over time, which-is-which may change.  I’m especially partial to a good red Zinfandel.  Whites are another thing altogether.  I keep trying them, and I have yet to find one as good as the reds I enjoy.  The only white I’ve found so far is Reisling, and I’ve had a few that are pretty good.

Anyhow, Dan Aykroyd, who was initially famous for playing on Saturday Night Live and went on to more fame and fortune,  is a man after my own heart.  He likes both kinds of spirits too!  In this article, he talks mostly about wine and his winery, but also about being a Spiritualist and Spiritualism in his family (on page 2).  Come to find out that he got started with wine in Niagara Canada, right next door to Western New York!
