about me

I live in Beaverton, Oregon with my lovely wife and two kids. I currently am spending lots of time being a dad, which I greatly enjoy.   My most recent career was as a winemaker, making big red blends from Washington grapes.  It turns out that sharing wine with others brings me so much joy that I dropped the idea of running my own commercial venture.  

Country
United States of America

"I had thought that David Bird had authored that passage". A comment that Tom quickly retweeted from.

"You made the killer lead", Tom cut in. "Unfortunately, our play did not lead to gold points", he dead-panned. "They smoked the rest of the pack", Tom said second-handedly.
What should East do?
