Alex enjoyed the season changes. The solstices and equinoxes were also the time of remuage. The job of turning all the bottles actually took several days because Alex did it all by himself. He always enjoyed each day's weather surprise in the afternoon when he emerged from the wine cellar.

There's a who are working to develop a disease-resistant version of the American chestnut. It is a valiant effort of arboriculture. Fullgrown adult chestnut trees disappeared from North America before I was born. The American elm died out during my lifetime. I'm behind any effort to restore these massive trees to our woods and forests.

Under well-done lace
Where he could creep
To smile at each in sleep.

You are right, E.P.S. No precognition needed. Actually our precognosticators (is that a word? It should be!) tell us that the area west of Boston, Massachusetts will only get a few inches from the storm. The storm center is predicted to slide east and to weaken tonight. Northern New England will get nothing. Such are the vagaries of weather.

On another subject: A company in Boston advertised yesterday that their waffle recipe has a better flavor because the imported Belgian sugar caramelizes better. CHO from Belgium is different from US CHO?

Any insight to the sugar in-site?
