Don, I was having a little fun ... standing back a bit and taking the forum "with sugar", à la Verlaine. We need to laugh at ourselves from time to time. The reason that Jade is such a hot topic around here is because it IS creative, it IS exciting, and just about all of us ARE anxious to experience it. And yes, there is something funny about how anxious we are.

Is this a jibe or a complaint?
JL products were conceived of on this forum, Ted and I met on thos forum, and many of the folks here were participants in the NOLA tasting. Those people KNOW we are up to something much different and better than the Czechs, for example, or almost all of the Spanish. So you can spot them a little bit of excitement and anticipation.
However the forum is not JL-centric.
And if you think this is boring, try Mike's Absinthe Portal forum some time.

Let's have a rub at the old crystal ball -- any empty snow globe will do -- and peer at the coming week's/month's/year's subtopic headings ...
"JL FINALLY OPEN FOR BUSINESS!" (First reaction: disbelief)
"MY JADE JUST ARRIVED IN THE MAIL!"
"JADE IS ____!!!" (insert worshipful/enthusiastic/
fanatical adjective here)
Many, many variations on "JADE IS ____!!!"
"JL'S BOTTLE SHAPE/CORK QUALITY (from which part of Portugal?)/LABEL TEXTURE (why isn't it vellum?)/etc., etc.
"SO WHEN IS GORGON COMING OUT?" (And multiple variations on this theme.)
"ANY JL ABSINTHE SPOONS?" (Just say "Frenchman")
"JADE TURNED MY FECES CHARTREUSE!"
"BEST WATER TO MIX WITH JL" (The winner will be flat Pellegrino)
From time to time, "WHERE CAN I GET JL?" (*sigh*)
"JADE VS. ________"(Or will it be beyond compare?)
And from some wag, the final word:
"I STILL PREFER HILL'S"
