Raise Your glass!

my favorite!

To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine... and those who don't.

As Ben Franklin said, "In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom,
in water there is bacteria." In a number of carefully-controlled trials, scientists
have demonstrated that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of
the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E.
coli)--bacteria found in feces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of
poop.

However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum,
whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification
process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Remember, Water = Poop,
Wine = Health.
Therefore, it's better to drink
wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information.
I'm doing it as a public service.



* a note of thanks to Anna for sending me this wise email!

I think that with wine you get a large dose of toe jam from the stomping of the grapes.

Finally found a red wine that I really like...don't they say red wine is the better of the wines for our health? Anyways, it's Bonizio and I was hipped to it at Leslie and John's house (a Lunar Ladies get-together). Look for it, Lucy, 'cause you may like it as much as us. Then tell us what you think...
