While my grandfather offered land support on the Western Front during World War II, his cousin, Joe Beckman, offered air support in the Pacific over Guadalcanal, New Guinea and the Philippines. Some of his fiercest battles took place over the seaport of Balikpapan.
Once your wine collection is properly stored, perhaps in a well-constructed custom wine cellar, and your systems are appropriately backed up, are you and your wines safe? Maybe not. What is the state of your records?
A man stops at the grocery store after work for a frozen pizza. As he gets back in his car, he uses his phone to tell his oven to start preheating.
