I found this Wine Folly poster via Paul Dorset’s blog, so thanks Paul for the great pointer to a great wine blog. As it turns out, I’ve managed to try quite a few of these – and I think there are a few I’ve tried that aren’t listed.

For Mother’s Day, I will be raising my glass to all the wonderful mothers I know!

Here’s a bunch of flowers – I took this at a nearby friend’s house yesterday after an evening of – what else? – champagne and good conversation. The wisteria has burst out all over our area in eastern France and many walls are alive with purple.

And speaking of purple and bubbles, NASA recently released this image of cosmic wind bubbles at the center of the Milky Way. Just thought I’d include it here.

Bubbles of gas and particles, 25,000 light years high ā€“ that emerge from the centre of the Milky Way, on either side of the galactic plane after being blown at supersonic cosmic winds during star formation. Go here for more information. Image: NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center via New Scientist
