(1) The Weather Channel Emergency Preparedness Kit (4 Person version) 9011
Description: (click show to see it)
Usually, "preparedness" for someone of your lifestyle is a
relatively simple matter. Whatever the next few days might bring,
you'll face them with a "family size" bag of Doritos (two bags if you
actually have a family), a toothbrush, a change of socks, and the
latest Civ IV expansion pack. And the toothbrush is optional if you've
got a pack of gum.
Then comes the tsunami, or the
earthquake, or the chemical-plant explosion, shattering your
complacency, your roof, and your hometown's infrastructure. Now what,
Boy Scout? Lay around and wait to die, soothed on your way by memories
of great Civ IV games past?
Not on our watch. With the
Weather Channel Emergency Preparedness Kit, you and your three favorite
loved ones will be whistling, cold-compressing, tweezing, and
poncho-ing your way through any disaster. And it's from the good people
at the Weather Channel, who live for this kind of thing. Just pray to
God you won't have to gun down any of your neighbors trying to steal
your canvas gloves.

Dear Woot traitors -
How dare you, sirs? This citizen is
utterly digusted that your business would push a treasonous product
like today's shirt. As soon as I figure out what it means, I'll be even
more outraged. Are you aware that this seditious garment was designed
by infamous subversive Cory Doctorow (a Canadian, no less)? I
would expect more responsibility and integrity from the company that
made its reputation with the Bag O' Crap. If people are allowed to say
whatever they want, then the terrorists have already won. Don't you
wingbats get it? Don't you realize that only blind panic can make us
truly secure? In the future, I will spend my t-shirt money with a 100%
American company - in other words, one whose opinions never differ from
my own. So nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!
The Golden State has a lot in common with Europe's Boot: balmy
Mediterranean climes, gorgeous beaches ringed by rugged mountains,
vine-covered hillsides, Rice-A-Roni. As far as we know, Mandolina
producers Louis Lucas and Royce Lewellen aren't Italian, nor is
winemaker Dan Gehrs. But through some diabolical feat of geographical
legerdemain, they've transformed their Santa Barbara County vineyards
into an outpost of the Italian Republic. And they plant their flag with
these four interpretations of classic Italian styles.
wines are every bit as bright and resonant as their namesake stringed
instrument. The Mandolina 2002 Toccata salutes the classic blends of
Tuscany, with a splash of Bourdeaux varieties to keep things
contemporary. As smooth and spicy as a habanero milkshake, it dances a
wild tarantella to the rhythm of wild strawberry, black currant, red
raspberry, black cherry, and violet. Its favorite partner?
Mediterranean cuisine - what else?
A quintessential Northern
Italian grape transplanted to Californian soil, the Mandolina 2002
Nebbiolo fits in just fine in its adopted homeland. But most immigrants
aren't this soft and chewy. And even fewer offer tempting aromas of
dried cherries, rose water, plum jame, and sweet clove. Welcome home,
Nebbiolo - you're one of us now.
The third and final red in
our quartet, the Mandolina 2005 Sangiovese, is part of a rising tide of
Sangiovese comin' outta Cali. It's easy to see what's the hubbub, bub:
characteristic Sangi aromas of wild strawberry, tea, and leather mingle
with flavors of wild cherry and anise in a passionate opera of the
senses. Unlike regular operas, you can dress however you want to
experience this one.
And then there was uno: the
only white in the bunch, the Mandolina 2006 Pinot Grigio. Wild strawberry and quince flavors illustrate that, like love, Mandolina's winemaking skills obey no color lines. It's at its best with light dishes like salads,
fruit, and cheese. And man, to really get wild, try it with a salad that includes fruit and cheese. It's, like, food pairing times infinity to the infinite power.
we can't all afford villas in Tuscany. And if we could, it would be
too crowded. But these Mandolina wines are authentic enough to make you
believe you're in l'Italia Bella itself, especially if you drink a couple of bottles in one sitting.
