Sorry ... do you mean you never drink anything else? .... or do you mean that is the only reason you drink red wine? ...or maybe you only DRINK it, as opposed to doing anything else with it? (..... I'm a fan of "Eats Shoots and Leaves")

You got me.

I'm always catching others for not being specific. So I guess turnabout is fair play.

I should have said for the most part red wine is the only alcoholic drink I partake in.

I do like cider (Strongbow or the like) occasionally and have been known to drink Mikes Hard Lemonade on occasion too. But as a daily occurrence red wine is it, and it did take a while to develop a liking for it.

Calm down buddy - when I get over there (sometime between now and 2010 !!) I'll brew as much of it as you can drink - you'll just have to supply the BBQ food

Hey bananahammock! You should be able to get that stuff at Thrifities. If not a Thrifties in Nanaimo, most definitely one in Victoria. Sometimes in the 'ethnic' or 'imported' food sections.

Nah - we've decided that it's better to live exactly where you want to (even if it is in a shoebox ) rather than where you can afford a larger house - so, like it or not, we are headed you way

Best get stocking your freezer with sides of beef

Even our No Frills sells both kinds of "Bigga" dried peas, and $2 isnt going to break anyones budget if you really have to eat that mush. They have cans too as I recall. Mushie peas are no problem.
