Jim, you really are a great portrait photographer. I don't think I've ever mentioned that before, but I love to see the portraits of people in your posts. Ken

Another Loire winner for you, Jim - couldn't resist this : André Figeat won the IWC Pouilly Fumé Trophy for his Sainsbury's Taste The Difference Pouilly Fumé - as well as the IWC Gold and Gold medal at the IWSC competition too. Just shows what the supermarkets can do when they work closely with small growers.
