Swirl and Sip

by duncanr

They use several metrics to show
The circular motion and flow
Of wine as it swirls,
As it whirls and it twirls,
Although why, I am too drunk to know.

personally, I can’t be arsed to swirl wine in a glass before taking a little sip of it – I drink wine like I do beer, big gulping mouthfuls of it from a tall glass, or mug, [or mouth to bottle on occasion]

but for those wine drinkers less uncouth than me, here’s the science behind the idea that swirling wine in a glass enhances the drinking experience –

Duncan takes up running

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.

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 !

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!
