Duncan takes up running

by allthoughtswork

If you love wine, how about competing in Run Bacchus - a wine-fuelled marathon

At the Run Bacchus, he’ll sample 12 food and wine stations along the course and nobody will dock him for not running in a straight line.

It’s held in a place called Dorking. Need I say more?

Duncan, you better sit down for this one

by allthoughtswork

The ancient Greeks used to play a game where they threw gallons upon gallons of wine around the room, trying to hit targets. You could’ve offered yourself up as a cleaning servant and just laid on the floor with your mouth open.

Fun Way to Lose Weight

by duncanr

still trying to shed some of those extra lbs you put on over the xmas/new year holiday?

why not give the egg+wine diet plan a try –

p.s. if you can’t stand eggs or are a vegan, like me – try my alternative to the egg+wine diet

after careful research, I have found that there are roughly the same amount of calories in 6 x samosa as there are in 10 x boiled eggs, so dump the eggs and try Duncan’s samosa+wine diet plan instead

happy dieting !

Internet Wine Opener

by duncanr

at the CES tech show in Las Vegas, guy demonstrates new wine bottle opener (costing around $1000) that doesn’t require removing cork from the bottle

he was motivated to come up with this gadget when his wife became pregnant because, as he put it, she stopped drinking alcohol so he had to drink a bottle of wine on his own and couldn’t drink it fast enough before wine was spoilt

couple of things struck me immediately . . .

Red, white, or bucket?

by allthoughtswork

Apparently, wine glasses have swollen over the generations to 7 times the size they were in the 1700s. Along with our noses. Salut!

Trump Climate Change Stance Threatens Wine Production

by duncanr

this is serious, folks!

the man-child currently holding the position of POTUS who thinks climate change is a hoax is entitled to his beliefs – however divorced from reality – but when his actions affect the lives of others, particularly those outwith the USA who never voted for the bugger, it is time to fight back

refusing to believe scientific evidence of global warming and refusing to curb america’s major contribution to that risks me having to pay more for my wine

to put it simply, higher temperature means lower production levels from grape pickers as they become more lethargic in the heat and need to take more breaks to avoid becoming dehydrated –

I’m pleading, begging fellow wine drinker’s in the USA to impeach the twat before it’s too late !

Pointless Invention?

by duncanr

some guy has invented a decanter that will keep wine ‘fresh’ for up to 12 days after it is opened – and has launched a kickstarter appeal for investors to enable him to bring the product to market –

frankly, I’m astonished – who takes 12 days to drink a bottle of wine?

I open a bottle, it’s empty a couple of hours later (at most) and I’m looking to open another one

but if you are someone who doesn’t finish off a bottle of wine the same day you open it, buy a bottle with a screw-top instead of a cork or use a
