  1. I’m not so sure about the olive, but I suppose it has it’s place – in martini.

  2. What would a Greek salad be with the juice of the olive.

    Speaking of Viticulture, to quote Bertie Wooster, “Dash it, Jeeves. Use your intelligence. Were it not for the juice of the grape and the grain, weddings would be a thing of the past. Proposals but a dim memory. Without it, Jeeves, we’d babble.” – Jeeves and Wooster (1990) Season 1, Episode 5; “The Hunger Strike” [No. 5]
