CK Links--Friday January 1, 2016

Happy New Year! Hard to believe it's 2016 already... and I hope you celebrated just the right amount last night. We'll be returning to regular weekly articles here at CK beginning on Tuesday, and I thank everyone for indulging me while I took a brief break from writing. Also, a warning: Tuesday's post might be a little weird.

Re Wine Myths ... Our wine & liquor cabinet is in the dining room and unfortunately in the line of fire of our central heat/air. At least it is closed, there is no vibration, and the temperature is kept pretty constant. But really, we solve the wine-storage dilemma by drinking it fast. Heh.
