Hi Gazou, I have just been to the Vineyard hotel Newbury for the judgement of Paris when the French wine industry lost out big time to the Californian in 1976.  Check it on the Internet.
19 different wines to identify, got 2 wrong.
regards Roy

Salut Gazou, je viens de le Vignoble hôtel Newbury pour le jugement de Paris où l'industrie du vin français a perdu gros temps à la californienne en 1976. Vérifiez sur Internet.
19 vins différents à identifier, a obtenu deux tort.
concerne Roy

French are imbecile!

They have taught the Californian, the Australians, in New Zélandais to make some wine.
Some French stayed in these countries ............

And it is Americans which judge wines

We sometimes find of her "xxxxx" of ass with good notes
And excellent wines with bad marks

Look for the error .................

Piesporter Michelsberg and Mateus Rose were developed for American ladies who wanted something sweeter and weaker than decent wine. They deserve each other. These are the same people who won't drink Chianti unless the bottle is "the right shape" and covered in wicker. There may be somewhere such a beast as an American wine expert, but I doubt if there are two.
My most memorable experience of Americans and wine was watching a barman at a hotel in Dallas unload a case of a rather nice-looking Bordeaux and put every bottle into a large bin which was full of ice. When I remonstrated with the guy he reminded me that I was a "limey" (how quaint); that he was the expert on drinks (I think not; he was all of 19) and that limeys also like our beer warm (it's actually ale). He didn't seem to understand what "philistine" meant, let alone the adjective which accompanied it!

Also a question of other officers not taking control of the ship as the Captain sailed into dangerouse waters.

Taking command away from the captain is a very unusual thing to do unless he has quite clearly gone bonkers or is drunk in charge!

Obviously the captain was careless, incompetent and subsequently both indecisive and cowardly in his actions but he didn't actually mean to sink his ship so who is to say just what a fair sentence is? One has to assume that the court took into account all the circumstances so it is rather beyond our competence to second guess the sentence. The prosecutors were asking for a longer term the defence hoped for less. Whatever the end result the captain's life is now ruined which is probably fair enough in the circumstances.

Found guilty of manslaughter, which is about right. He didn't set out to kill people (well, probably). In road terms it was dangerous driving. Considering the sentences people convicted of actual murder seem to get these days I think 16 years is probably fair.

It is good that the captain got a jail time. No one should have died . The boat partially sank next to land in warmish waters and took several hours to do so. This gos to show how sloppy the company were bit like TT at the time of the Hearld

TT  were found to be poor in there safty in the herld enquiry . Costa has all the hall marks . No should have died on that boat. Costa  company might not have sailed the boat on to rocks but there poor acident / evacuation planning management is what got thoes people killed. The boat sank very slowly in warish water and was upwright for most of the time .Every one should have got off that boat with out a scratch ,that why I think costa are sloppy when it comes to safty

I wouldn't disagree with that. The Captain and officers were certainly incompetent in dealing with the immediate effects of the grounding.

Costa Concordia captain's appeal rejected:


Florence’s appeals court has upheld the 16-year jail term for Francesco Schettino, the captain of the Costa Concordia cruise ship, which sank off Italy in 2012 leaving 32 people dead.

The last line of the report is sickening, banned from being a captain for 5 years, hope fully he will never sail as an officer again
