20" of the snow the last 2 weeks here in Kansas...
... We have gotten over five feet on the flats here so far and I am hoping for a couple good wet falls this spring. Snow is most of our seasons water.
Well here's a hoping that were you live that, :piano: "There's a bright golden haze on the meadow... there's a bright golden haze on the meadow. The corn is as high as an elephants eye and it looks like its climbing clear up to the sk..."Oklahoma ! Oh What a Beautiful Morning and More (HD 720p)Oops, sorry, wrong flick or play.
But you still better be on the look out for those flying monkey things... :jerry:
As for you V.G. I hope that you have to cut your yard 6 times this summer and that the green head ducks almost carry you away, like them flying monkey things they got down there in Oz. ;)
As for bottling sparkling wine. I used to bottle all my wine (still and sparkling) in champaign bottles. I don't get around much anymore but all the night clubs around here use to give every couple a complimentry bottle of bubblie just before midnight on New Years eve. Local liquor laws here said every can or bottle had to be opened before it got to the table, and that you could not leave with an open bottle, can, glass, or other container.
By 5 or 6 AM New Years morning I was dumpster diving at all the better Juke Joints. A pickup truck load of nice green Champaign bottles that would serve as a hammer in a pinch was a normal hawl from only 3 or 4 stops. A lot of the time the bottles were even back in the cases and most of the nylon stoppers and wire cages were there also. Check out your local scene this New Years. The joints to concentrate on are the ones that offer their customers a New Years package.
Hey, home brewed beer also is good to go in these bottles. I had one or two blow it's stopper because I didn't tie the cork down good enough or stumped my toe while charging, but I never had an explobed bottle.
