Whine: Not My Week for Wine

Whine: The Gamble I have become a huge fan of Chateauneuf-du-Pape white wine. It hurts the wallet real bad as an everyday wine, but it makes a perfect celebration wine.

Folding the Dreaded Fitted Sheet Recently, I heard a Facebook friend lamenting the difficulty of folding a fitted sheet.  I too am in that same camp, but fortunately for me, I have Gary.  He is a pro at “the fitted sheet”.  He learned at 15 years old when he was employed at a Howard Johnson’s Motel and had to learn the correct way to do it.  You know back when hotels and motels actually used fitted sheets.  So here is a video of him doing his thing while he was doing some laundry last weekend. Please note:  This video is…
