7/15/07 The Ides of July

The California wine competition is over. More than 350 wines were judged. The best chardonnay? Two buck chuck.


It really is the Ides of July. The Romans made things real complicated for some reason. Instead of numbers (which were confusing enough already... hadn't anyone heard of the deca system?), they used the following:

Kalends (1st day of the month)
Nones (the 7th day in March, May, July, and October; the 5th in the other months)
Ides (the 15th day in March, May, July, and October; the 13th in the other months)


By now, you're familiar with my obsession with odd commercials. The commercial for the Oozinator might be number one in the "Just Wrong" category.



Have a good start to your week. And remember - It is easier to get forgiveness than permission.
