Say, what's with the hose strewn across your lawn? Don't you care
about appearances? Don't you have any self-respect? A person's home is
his or her castle. What, are you planning a moat?
at it, strung all across the yard, ugly as can be, advertising your
sloth, and driving down property values on the whole street. It's only
a matter of time before it gums up the lawnmower, or trips some
Yeah, sure, you enjoy watching children fall
down; who doesn't? It's hilarious. But you know what you won't enjoy?
Their parents' liability claims, that's what.
You do know that
hose is killing your grass as we speak, right? If you're not going to
put it away, you could at least arrange it to spell something
appropriate in cursive. How about LA-Z HOMONR?
know, I heard of a guy--he left his hose out all summer. Apparently a
snake crawled in there, maybe to get warm. He didn't know until one day
he picked up the hose and turned it on to spray his wife, just horsing
around, you know? And the snake came squirting out at her. It caused
serious emotional trauma, right there. They divorced soon after.
you know what you need? You need a hose reel. Sure, a hose reel would
wind that sucker right up. They actually make hose reels now that run

splash, it's as easy as that.
You have to buy the right reel

you got there, a 75-footer? Sure, one of those No-Crank reels would do
you just fine.
Now say, what's with all those weeds in your planters? Don't you care about appearances?

The great explorers all know the thrill of being first. And by first, they meant "not counting the locals". Because, really, who wants to be the very first person to do something? It's scary out there! There are bugs and monsters and some of those paths go into caves and there are bears in those caves! Bears! Just like they joke about on the Colbert Report!
History tells us that the best way is to find a path which everyone else has taken before you, then just be the first of your peer group to use it. That's how you'll know you'll go home with gold and glory and have a knighthood and the history books will revere your name. Nothing like laurels to help with a good night's rest.
Isn't that messy baby hedgehog cute? You can't say it's not cute. That's totally an adorable baby hedgehog. Look at those sweet little paws! OMG! You just want to gobble it up!
Wear this shirt: because you voted for it. That's what democracy is all about. Otherwise we'd be like Britain with their Shirt Parliament and Ministers Of Design.
Don't wear this shirt: if you're a plumber. It would be kind of weird. Wouldn't that be kind of weird? It would totally be kind of weird.
This shirt tells the world: "Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle still loved her son, even though she could never condone his lifestyle choice."

So please don't make us take sides. We're not among those wine chauvinists who turn up their tastebuds at anything from outside their borders. We go where our palate takes us. We obey no law but the law of the grape.
(And, of course, the laws regulating interstate wine shipping.)
We're happy to see that Castello Di Gabbiano Chief Winemaker Giancarlo Roman of Tuscany and Beringer Vineyards Winemaster Emeritus Ed Sbargia of Napa Valley feel the same way. They're the alleanza referred to in the name of this wine, two great wine minds bringing the styles of two continents to bear on grapes grown on the Castello Di Gabbiano estate in Tuscany. It's the most powerful trans-Atlantic alliance since NATO, and you can't drink a mutual defense pact.
But boy, can you ever drink the Castello Di Gabbiano 2005 Alleanza Toscana. From a blend of 75% Merlot, 15% Sangiovese, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon springs forth a deep crimson wine exuding sweet berry, black pepper, cinnamon, and vanilla aromas. Those notes carry over on the palate, with hints of nutmeg, tobacco, anise, and cocoa, and a round, supple, deep mouthfeel. Not hard to see why it scored a novanta from Wine Spectator.
See, the 2005 Alleanza is the kind of multiculturalism the world needs more of: multi-viti-culturalism. We can't think of a better wine to be the first Italian wine featured on Wine.Woot. One guess what we're going to pour to celebrate the occasion.
