"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    I didn't expect that I know so little about wine, beer and spirits!

    Your glass is definitely half empty, but while you've got a problem with your trivia, at least you don't have one with your drinking.

    Evidence that you're not a boozer @april.

    Okay, I got this shameful score... :/

    Isn't it obvious that I have no ideas on different wine brands? Or it's just like I haven't tried drinking wines? Well, this is the right reason to try it out. ;)
