'Tis as rotten as a rotten post.

I don't know if these vineyard posts are in fact rotten, but the people at the Opus One winery in Oakville have decided to replace nearly every last one in their vineyard. Or at least I think that is what they are doing, I don't really know. All I know is that it makes for a very strange sight when driving by...I'll be watching to see what happens.

What do you mean by Happy Pancake Tuesday?

I ask because yesterday morning, which was Tuesday, I had this overwhelming urge to have pancakes for breakfast, and so I prepared them.

Shrove Tuesday - pancakes are made from a simple batter of flour, milk, eggs, salt (similar to Yorkshire pudding batter) as a way to use up all the rich food items in ones larder to prepare for fasting during Lent. They are not like your US pancakes, but more resemble crêpes and are eaten sprinkled with sugar and lemon juice.

Sounds good.

Lent. Ah yes, I remember it...
