Du vin, chichi code

This week they, again, were divining
Whose vintage is tops, or declining.
Thirty years since the test
When the U.S. fared best,
But the French haven't ever stopped wining.

California wines beat French again

One of these days maybe Arkansas wines will beat out the competition. But right now they're only so-so.

I imagine you've seen the limericks by Madeleine Begun Kane at the following website but if you haven't I know you'd be interested.

Well, Annie, as they say, "A rising tide raises all ships."

Ohio wines have improved in recent years from what was once only a sickeningly sweet "Catawba."

Yes, I have recently discovered Mad Kane. She contributed to my Limerick of All Mothers Marathon. I owe her, and many of you, a link. Maybe this weekend?

Thanks for your continued interest despite my dearth of product lately.
