I work here. He works here. I work in there. He works in there. I love this vodka. You love this vodka. The vodka is in that new house.

Thanks for the reply. Im a little currious as to why "I love this vodka" and "you love this vodka" wasn't said with the verb to love, любить. instead the reflexive verb was used. Whats the reason behind that?

It's just my personal preference. I can't say "Я люблю водку", not celebrating something at the table. I think, it's good rather when drinking and celebrating, or maybe, comparing alcocholic drinks.
