Two Buck Chuck

Recently, it was reported that a two-dollar bottle of wine had won a prestigious double-gold medal at the 21st annual Eastern Wine Competition. The wine is a 2002 shiraz from Charles Shaw, and it's sold at Trader Joe's. Although it won the medal, it narrowly missed winning best-in-category, losing out to a wine that costs $50.

Well, I'm tossing back a glass of the Charles Shaw Merlot tonight, and it tastes pretty good to me. (I've somehow got the urge to go spend $48 on really good cheese.)

In other news, I saw my first snake of the year today, when I was biking the Potawatomi Trail northwest of Ann Arbor. Summer must really be here. Now, where are those damned turtles?

I saw a snake in the Arb a few weeks ago. No word on turtles, though.

I've been looking around and came across your site by accident. The information you link to from your home page is quite informative so thanks for taking the time to post it.
