Am I still drinking wine? 


One wine per week?

Not quite. A little more than that. I am still doing what I described a while ago, which is to open a 750 ml bottle, fill up three (3) 187.5 ml bottles and then drink the 4th 187.5 ml portion that evening. 

Well actually, not drink it. I put the wine in my mouth, chuggle it around (like that word?), savor it, then spit it out. I get all the benefits of the taste of the wine but not the "relaxation" from the alcoholic content. Not that there's anything wrong with that relaxation but spitting it out helps avoid the temptation of opening that 2nd or 3rd (or 4th) little bottle that I am supposed to save for subsequent nights. 

And that's my wine-tasting process. I've had a bunch of wine since the last tasting note I wrote which was so long ago I don't even remember. 

I'm going to make an effort to be more timely with this blog instead of having it be an annual event.  

By the way, if any of you need anything from Amazon.com, please get there by clicking whatever product I've got featured on the left side of this blog because if you buy something during the visit triggered by that click, I get a little spiff.  It doesn't have to be that product; as long as you buy something in the same visit, that's what counts. 

I'll try to post some interesting, less-conventional stuff there to remind you, okay? 

See ya' tomorrow!
