Perhaps it is the age of the wine, but it seemed to rely on the tannins (which provide it with its deep purple colourings) as the basis of the wine. I’d […]

Sunday, April 23rd, 2006

One of the more annoying things with moving from Adelaide to Canberra has been the lack of Fresh. I am glad that I have been able to find the streaming links the 128bit stream is here. A pity that a complete coverage wireless net solution for the car does not yet exist :\

However after allowing it to breath for an hour or so, much of this evil smelling and foul tasting (not to […]
