Today's My Blogoversary - since '06

August 23rd, 2008 at 01:42 pm




I've been here at Saving Advice since August 23, 2006. Wow. Glad I set up the blogoversary button to remind me.

Went to the wine-making class this morning. It was an hour and a half class and about an hour into it I got too hot and thought I was going to pass out and had to step outside to cool off. Got in the car and started up the air-conditioner and headed home. The class took place about 45 minutes from home.

BUT - I recalled that she'd mentioned that we'd get a FREE bottle of wine to take home. I was about 5 minutes away and turned back and finished the last 15 minutes or so of the class, got my FREE hooch and headed home. It's a black raspberry merlot. Will give it a taste here in a few days. It's from a four week wine kit. The lady who teaches the class has wine in several stages of production so this was ready to be bottled and is ready to drink.

I'll let you know how it tastes.

It was tempting but I didn't buy any equipment today. She was very nice and didn't do a hard sell at all. I'm wanting to but am hoping the desire will pass, if it doesn't then I will probably buy off of ebay if I can get it cheaper.

Today's free wine is counted as INFLOW.

    Good job sticking around long enough for some free wine! My grandmother has always made homemade concotions in big glass jugs/bottles with balloons on top to signal when they were ready. I don't understand the whole thing, but BF and I are going to get her to teach us one day!

    Let us know if it's tasty!

    Happy Blogoversary!

    Hope you enjoy the wine. I like wine sometimes but I'm kind of fussy. I like semi-sweet red wines. Never cared for white or anything thats bitter. They sell a real cheap red wine where I work that only costs $2.49 a bottle but its one of the best wines I've tasted.

    Thanks everybody. Okay toyguy1963, spill - what's the name of it?

    I'm not sure if I have the name exactly correct or not, but I think its Boone's Farm Sangria. Its something like that and you can't miss it if you look in the wine isle at Wal Mart. Its probably the lowest priced wine they have. Like I said its semi-sweet and has a very pleasant flavor.
