  • Toast to Healthy Red Wine Tannin
    You hear a lot of buzz today about the benefits of drinking red wine and according to Science News, Dec 2, 2006, there seems to be some scientific basis for it.

  • More than grapes in the world

I prefer a Highland, single malt, but am an inclusive kind of gal who concedes that a Lowland, Speyside,...

    In the mood for a decent steak and don’t want to spend more than a Big Mac with large fries and large coke? Okay, so you’ll want to leave a decent tip and that’s not a completely fair comparison.
