My Wine Whine

Appropos of nothing, have you noticed that more and more wine bottles seem to be coming with screw tops instead of corks? Now, we are in no way wine aficionados - more like wine "apprecionatos" - but something just seems wrong when you twist open a bottle of red! I don't care if it is, in fact, a better preserving mechanism - I never keep a bottle around long enough for that to matter. Besides, a number of years ago we bought a $200 cork screw (though, at that price, they call it a "cork puller"), and I like to use it dammit!

Ok, I'm done ranting.
