This is the 5th part in my series of blog posts about my trip to France.

First, the why. The short answer, Why Not!? [...]
So I’ve been talking a lot about live-streaming my Skype tastings to Ustream for a while now. Well there always seems to be some kind of issue with Skype and my computers. You see, I’m a tinkerer.
