Many social platforms today use the term "social" (as an adjective) to describe the value they would like their platforms to provide. I feel many fall short. You have loads of friends on the other platforms; yet, they are friends of nobody, really. I consider Delectable to be different. @Bill Bender spoke of this so eloquently a while back. My prose in no way could ever rival a Cambridge Don, but I'd like to tip my hat to the points that he made. First, I have made many close friends here; you know who you are. I can't say that for LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, et al? Wine is sometimes considered an odd, and somewhat obscure passion. But I find clarity amongst this obscurity, because of your posts and scores that you share. But I always find gems, such as this one shared by Paul T. $5 from K&L, its criminal! Most of the peeps I follow share great tips, like this one! So for this reason, I thank Delectable for providing the opportunity to expand my true network of friends, and grow my knowledge of fine wines. Renovation update - second staircase has been removed. Additional framing has been installed to support the sheetrock behind the 2nd staircase. With any luck the second staircase will be installed just before thanksgiving. — a month ago

@Ron R well said. I think the thing that differentiates Delectable is we all share the same passion for wine and genuinely want to share reference points with one another so we all get collectively smarter. As you have so eloquently pointed out, you don’t have to spend a fortune to find a bottle of wine you really enjoy. As long as it continues to be about sharing knowledge for the greater good this will continue to be a place to build friendships.

@Peter Zandbergen, Thank you so much!!! I love Belgium. I lived in Waterloo (ex-pat ghetto) for a year or so. I have promised to take my wife there, soon. When we plan our trip, I reach out to you.
