    I’m a great fan, but I am beginning to think you are going to blow it with this interview. Hedi at SE makes what many people would call the best wine in the world. You need to get into detail about her experience here, in particular with the recent sale. You guys are making here sould like a journeyman freelancer.

    This interview was recorded long before the sale was made public. Aren’t you jumping the gun saying that these guys are ” going to blow it”

    What the heck does this mean?
    “You guys are making here sould like a journeyman freelancer.”

    Thanks Mel. You are 100% correct. She did not even know about the planned sale when we spoke to her.

    I liked the talk, but I am biased.
