blah blah blah

Hi ho hi ho it's back to work I go.
Damn, did this week off ever fly by.

"Law Enforcement: I joined because of the benefits,
I stayed because of the mace. "

Today I had yet another one of my "if you don't let go of it, I CAN'T THROW IT!!" conversations with Holly. We have at least three or four a day.

Zal sends this "news" story, along with the comment,"Bwahahahaha...
mebbe it'll have a screw-top for ya," referring, of course, to the still uncorked bottle of wine my bro-in-law gave me last month.

"Wal-Mart announced that they will soon be offering customers a new
discount item: Wal-Mart's own brand of wine. The world's largest retail chain is
teaming up with E&J Gallo Winery of California, to produce the spirits
at an affordable price, in the $2-5 range.

Wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to throw a bottle of Wal-Mart
brand into their shopping carts, but "there is a market for cheap wine", said
Kathy Micken, professor of marketing. She said: "But the right name is
important." Consumer research was conducted to determine the most
attractive name for the Wal-Mart brand. The top surveyed names in order
popularity are:
10. Chateau Traileur Parc
9. White Trashfindel
8. Big Red Gulp
7. World Championship Riesling
6. NASCARbernet
5. Chef Boyardeaux
4. Peanut Noir
3. I Can't Believe It's Not Vinegar!
2. Grape Expectations
And the number 1 name for Wal-Mart Wine:
1. Nasti Spumante
The beauty of Wal-Mart wine is that it can be served with either white
meat (Possum) or red meat (Squirrel)."
