The cork story is as convoluted as it is interesting. We should be buying MORE cork to support the cork farmers, many of whom have had sustainable cork orchards for many, many generations and are only recently losing them to land developers and cheaper petroleum-based synthetic corks and screw top wine bottles

You'll have to pry my dead fingers off the last real cork fly rod grip.

As far as predicting market trends, I laughed out loud the first time I saw a glitter painted bass boat. I thought it should be towed in the Rose Bowl parade with Liberace playing the piano from it. Shows how much I know.
