Is that typo intentional, cookie? Smile

No, I may have been drinking. Mmmmm, wine.

I see, I thought you were making a subtle point as you are wont to do. Wine is nice, although there's many a slip twixt lip and cup.

Indeed it is, however I have no bottles of my most beloved wine left and no funds (at least not sufficient funds) with which to buy more. This makes me sad.

I've always been fed a healthy diet of Gewurztraminer. Alsace was my mother's home for 16 years of her life.

Anything Côtes du Rhône, Chateau Rayas in particular, it is an astounding wine and it does justify the price, unlike a lot of others.

I find Chilean wine, particularly of the red variety, to be of pleasant and refreshing character. They're rather good.

Oh sparking water with a wedge of lime loads of ice is a fantastic pallet cleanser.

I find the likes of Perrier and the German Sprudel to be rather nice. I do however prefer still water and the best still water, imo, is San Pellegrino. It is so refreshingly clear. It goes very well with heavy meals like spaghetti carbonara and canneloni.

San Pellegrino is every so slightly gassed. While it was sick it was all I could drink to add a bit of interest to my diet.

Even the still variety? Perhaps that is what makes it so very refreshing and very much better than that muck Deep River Rock. Do you think it's the best mineral water as well? If so it's further confirmation of the separated-at-birth theory.

Was lucky enough to have a glass or two of this on Friday night with my dinner:



It was made at a Chateau in the Loire that had clearly been visited by my favourite local saint, Saint Fiacre saint of gardening, usually shown with a shovel in his hand.

I do. There is also incredible satisfaction to be found while cracking the plastic seal on the cap. But they have changed it now so it's not so satisfactory. Sad

Ah, that's a terrible shame, but it's still the best mineral water out there. The others just don't have it as right as the Italians.

My Dad would shoot someone for that odious concoction. Jameson must be kept in virgo intacta.
