Edition Notes

Edition 37 – June 14 to July 10 2010 (Wine by Cush)


 

My last edition notes were about a month ago and I am glad of what I have done in the meantime. The old system of writing edition notes once-a-week was great and worked well when I had plenty of time on my hand because I wrote many posts. That system was interrupted when I moved and also changed many other things. I was advised the nature of a discovery blog requires writing inspontenously and strict order prevents creativity so messy blog should do a better job. That proved to be a good idea and do work also. I hate to admit people still steal my stuff and one day I will make sure the people who do this systematically and run mailing lists of my blog contents are so sorry they ever did that. I have a long history of getting even with people. I know from my blog hits how many on the average read my posts and so many of people whom I know read my posts never come near my blogs. There is always a price to pay and nothing is free. Stealing stuff does result in some cost in the long run as they will see. This edition of Wine by Cush does has more than a dozen posts and my case study of peasant food is also in there. Since I had spent time in discussion and implementation of materials for the purposes of my own diet and the Food Program, it was worthwhile to share some of my casual findings in a useful format thus a case study of stuff ordinary Americans eat within a broader perspective of what the base classes of the society have been eating throughout the ages. I think the insights of each short post make them worth reading. One of the posts is only available in my locked World of Cush blog because of references to certain people and not much is missed since the other posts are and will be here. I had to make a point on No Destination establishments and their value. I also proposed my Eat Free for Life program which is really a benefit to the industry during good and bad times and I am sure once it happens (which it will) the results will be violations of what I had proposed or in the public and industry interest: Somebody will try to use it to make money unless is implemented as I mentioned. I still expect to spend more time in wine tastings also but my schedule is really hard and since the blog is developing me, my ideas and contribute to the readers (including those reading stolen materials), I felt not a huge loss not to be actively tasting. I don’t think wine as a business is as much involved with tasting the actual wine as the public assume.

Edition 36 – 17 May to 14 June 2010 (Wine by Cush)


 

Edition Thirty Six has only one post which is fine. I find the post easy to read and understand while being invaluable. My finding that using one device for each major activity results in automatic huge increase in productivity is more important that a number of posts about various topics. I am moving forward and expect more posts relating to wine soon because the weather has turned nice recently.

Edition 35 – 2 May to 16 May 2010 (Wine by Cush)


 

I have three posts in this edition and they are decent in content. I may be able to get in the field more often in the near future and that will change the type and the quantity of posts for this blog. I have too little time for reading or writing at the present time and the contents of my blogs show this. I have plenty of materials in progress which take too long to put in writing but expect to be able to do a good job of posting them in the near future. I am also working on too many things at the same time but that has never affected my work in the past unless another type of problem was in the way. My commute and work schedule make it very difficult to do my blog publications. I haven’t had a chance to publish any of the local tasting announcements also. They do take time since I receive more than a few. I should be able to return to normal in the future. I am experimenting with too many things and a few things have been postponed without prior planning. The Netbook experiment went quite well but I had to find another device for my emails and still have not had a chance to work with Peek email device. The cell phone experiments are going well. I should change to two other models this week and follow by two more in a couple of weeks. All of these take my time away and I haven’t taken any snapshots (which annoys many people anyway) because this cell phone has no camera. I found out that carrying a camera will not work and almost all of my snapshots were the result of carrying a camera phone. That has been proven again by the experiment of using this cell phone. What do any of these have to do with wine? I would say plenty. I would not be able to produce anything without good systems in place and I have developed quite a few but need a few more. Most people, as I have myself, assume one can buy a device and start using and the job gets done. That has proven to be wrong too many times for me. I guess it would work better if I had many assistants and advisors but in the real world things work the way they do now for me. I would say they are not that bad and I am making progress. The only thing that needs to change as soon as possible is that I need to be in the field more often. I am glad I am no longer in anyway affiliated with San Francisco food and beverage because a fake industry does harm to all involved and I have had my share. I expect to get plenty done by concentrating outside of San Francisco.

Edition 34 – 19 April to 2 May 2010 (Wine by Cush)


 

This edition of thirty four has only two posts one of which is a tasting announcement and the other is a reflection. My new mobile system has caused some problems but does work and what keeps me from working more is my screwed up work schedule. I am almost sure the company I work for has been sold and the middle level management are trying to keep their jobs, once the takeover is complete, by making all kinds of cosmetic changes that have no effect on the business but will make a new owner possibly happy that they have been doing a good job and should be allowed to stay around. None of this obviously confirmed but since everyone does a little ‘no commenting’ on rising rumors and news, the only possibility has to be true and the place has been sold. I think that is a good thing since this company has a business model that (if ever worked) is so old, even the fraudulent operations (the company itself does) put on to create fake sales numbers are no longer working. The idea of putting a 7-11 in every neighborhood but selling electronics (at retail or higher prices for the sake of the convenient location) may have had appeal once but today the consumers are very smart and research products. They also find out sooner or later that Internet provides anything retail sells at fraction of cost and they are no longer forced to shop local and pay huge sums. The majority of competition have gone out of business but do exist as online establishments. Consumer confidence does not exist any more. We are back to the days before 80s booms when people did not have money (money supply was low and only a few had some) and everyone was careful what to buy, where to buy and how much to pay. This has become the spending norm and will probably stay that way. Everyone is interested in changing this and bringing the ‘consumer confidence’ back up so the economy rolls but all tricks of government, stock market, businesses and the media so far have failed. Providing fake news, fake government data, fake indicator numbers and fake stock market or business news and numbers does not work. The word has got out that spend all you can and you will have more to spend tomorrow was an old theory and does not work any more. Another undeniable fact is that somethings have changed though we cannot put our finger on them. One is Generation Y is here. They are young, don’t care about much, spend all they can (and have less daily) and are very large in total numbers. They are pushing everyone else out of work by working for less money, more hours and appearing to be a better deal for the business and the industry. They are not. Anyone who takes the time to check the characteristics of Generation Y knows they will bring the country down for good. If nothing else, their huge numbers and lack of jobs (100 million after 45 million and that is if every Gen X person left their jobs) promises huge unemployment and high crime. Generation Y will be very big on crime and they are just taking their place in the society as Baby Boomers are retiring. Many things have changed and are changing though probably will not be noticed for some time to come. The negative effects are already here. On the brighter side some lousy and terrible companies are going out of business and will be replaced by more balanced businesses. The crooks are the last to go out of business because they cheat so much and have room to be flexible. It looks like their time has come. I am glad the revolution movement is picking up speed and many of our today’s executives and business folk will soon be inhabiting our prisons. It is wonderful everyone has been brainwashed so nothing but the current state of society is a believable scenario to them. They will get hit harder and harder when the changes pick up enough pace for them to notice also.

Edition 33 – 11 to 18 April 2010 (Wine by Cush)


 

This edition has only one post which is about retail in specific but relates to wine indirectly. I have been trying now to write reviews of anything since in today’s business climate all reviews are deemed damaging except for a 100% praise review. It was not however possible to cover the topic without using examples and I think the subject was treated fairly. The problem with dishonest business is whatever comes its way will be dealt with dishonestly also. A fair, honest and critical questioning of a business operation that is based on fraud will not result in the improvement of the operation. They will cover things up and continue. I frankly don’t care because this is not my area to follow up but the time has come or should come shortly for this country to admit more than mediocre and fake is the basic minimum standard in all facets of life. Lying and coverups by burying things under the US flag, the cover of being All American, and the American Way is how business is done in America and has always been but the shift from a centralized system to organizations of fewer hierarchy levels has made it possible to avoid this American evil. It is possible to run companies, make products, provide services and live life by meeting standards far above fake and faulty (that are wrapped in the American flag not to be questioned). That should be the direction the country moves toward and these institutions and their ways of thinking have to be discarded or the harm that they have caused will continue into the future. Someone told me once when Tom Peters was going around doing research to write his famous book on excellent American companies, many of these corporations knew through their political lobbies this was being done and they arranged to set up so he found more than he had expected in America that was beyond excellent. That may be true or not but is certainly one way to look at the whole thing. American business has never been honest and nor has been any other institutions that are traditional in America. The same questions can be asked about the government, the education and so on. As long as they are covered under the cover of American Way and American Flag and no comparison or measurement can be made, they go on. I have been told for more than 20 years (most of my adult life) of how some of the most evil men in the world run the Department of State in Washington. Now, it is fashionable to say they worked for the Israeli Lobby and now they work for the Arab Lobby and so on but has not always been such. Department of State makes rules for all kinds of things in the universe and most of all everything has to meet the basic requirement that America is Great. Any lie and coverup will be supported by our government to portray that America is Great. The industry can do whatever it wants. The schools can do whatever they want. The criminals can do whatever they want. As long as they tell everyone America is Great, the government will cover up what they do. Anybody can do whatever evil they want and do whatever wrong they want with some help and Department of State has been helping them as long the prestige of America is not questioned. This lying business has gone too far and soon everything will literally blow up into pieces from the lies, the deceits and the chicaneries that have piled up behind this dam of the media coverup. America is not Great and is a terrible country. It can be great in a snapshot moment but if seen over a long period of time, the life of this country is a life of evil. Department of State covers this life of evil up. Many who know about and understand are eliminated or bought by the government. The bulk of the population know nothing and only understand life on a day-to-day basis. The time has come for America to look at what it has been and has become beyond the lies sanctioned by the government, covered up by the media and the ignorance of everything that is wrong here. The soft change in the government came with Obama election which failed proving once again the impossibility of any reform effort within the system. The hard change is progressing very rapidly and will literally wipe things out of its way. Personally, I think a top priority is that nobody runs away and should be held accountable for what they did under this United States of America. That is especially true for those evil men of the Department of State. Revolutionary effort has been at work in this country to fight its evil for decades. When the top military brass requested my presence here, I was barely out of high school. The Department of State would not issue a visa for me to enter the United States. Department of Army sent a few men to the Department of State who proceeded to give such a beating to the gentlemen in the Department of State, they not only had no problem issuing a visa but also made a pact to fight everything and anything I ever do. God knows how many of them have gone to the grave in the past two decades and finally the day has come to open the books and question every single one of them who are alive, dead, in active service, retired, and working for the Foreign lobbies. Evil has been at work in the American life forever and no American will deny it. The details of how, where and why are seen differently however. The time has come to get rid of the garbage that does not work, that does harm and is against the very life of this country but is tolerated under the guise of the American Way, the All American and the American Flag. What would be the best way to cover up one’s evil deeds and wrongdoings than under something that is deemed unquestionable? Those who authorized and organized this will be traveling to hell before, during and after their terrible deaths to come when they are captured by the revolutionary forces very shortly. And one of the many evil parts of America that will tossed away forever is these All American companies of worst standards and evil functioning. We look forward to that day of freedom from the lies and the evil of these demonic institutions disguised as the most proper. That day is today and on.

Edition 32 – 4 to 11 April 2010 (Wine by Cush)


 

This edition has a few posts and more will appear in the future editions as they sometimes do. I think I have successfully separated myself from San Francisco and its special interest-controlled dining circle. That should prove productive in my case because things are not defined by what the special interest dictates through Michael Bauer and SF Chronicle but selecting what receives the attention and how they are analyzed.

Edition 31 – 28 March to 3 April 2010 (Wine by Cush)


 

This edition is interesting to me since it has almost ten posts and all of them are notices of upcoming tastings and training. I feel good that I kept my promise to post whatever I get in my mail box that is worth sharing. I have to drop some because they don’t qualify as events or are fake events but some are good to share. The only significant post relates to restaurant review by San Francisco Chronicle and I really don’t care to comment any more since I think not paying attention to San Francisco materials is the best way to get started on what goes on elsewhere. The elsewhere is the focus of my Discovery websites starting a short time recently.
