Wowah, You Rook Maaarvelous.

Yeah, I suppose I have some. I normally refuse to make resolutions, under the pretense that the more I am forced to do something, the less-likely I a to do it. However, I feel a bit stronger, a bit more responsible this year. So, I have made a couple resolutions for the new year...

1. Drink more champagne. Seriously. I thought I would get a bottle of champagne but really wanted to forgo the $6 Cook's champagne and spend a little more. Hey, it actually was good - really good. I recommend going either to Trader Joe's, Costco, or some other discount store, so you get more bang for your buck. (Sorry - couldn't resist.) If at all curious, a moderately priced yet decent champagne - the one we tried - is made by Mumm; a particular one (there are many by Mumm) which cost us $28 at Safeway, so I am sure you could pick it up for less than $25 somewhere. I am not sure which exact one it was other than the pic of it here, but this may be partm of the resolution: to learn more about champagnes. What we liked about the champagne was not only the taste, but the "high," which is much better than a simple glass of say, chardonnay; The bubbles do go to your head a bit, and it is a more fun buzz, and seems to hit you quicker. Also, after sharing the entire bottle between he two of us, neither of us had a hint of after-affect in the morning; no more than drinking Martinelli's sparkling cider.

2. I need to think about a second resolution.

I would like to apologize for not reading my wife's Blog prior to today. At times I have underestimated and under appreciated her creativity and intelligence and her ability to express both through her writings. Although I rarely say as much, I am always amazed at what she has to offer. She is an amazing woman and I am truly a lucky man.
