PhotoHunt: Twisted - Venetian Glass Goblet

In summer, when I'm drinking my favorite sparkling wine, Pink, I like to use one of my Venetian glass goblets from my 1992 trip. I used to have six, then there were five... H'mm, much like the ruby red Murano glasses I was given several years ago. One needs to choose carefully when having a drink. What you drink it from, can make all the difference.

I'd better explain Pink to you. It's based on a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir sourced from South Australia. I drink it for the distinctive Pinot Noir scent of strawberries. Really, It's soft pink ice in a glass.

So this is my entry for PhotoHunt: Twisted - when I hold the goblet I can feel the sinuous twist in the glass stem. There's nothing quite like... Venetian glass.

How lovely, Leslie! My wine glasses are Anchor Hocking, from Wal-mart. Large-bowled and tall!

I did the Jane Austen character quiz. Not surprisingly, I am ...Elinor Dashwood! She also happens to be my favorite. ;-)

Hi Leslie, the fish tank screensaver software is called Marine Aquarium. The website is http://serenescene.com. I just went there and it's still available. I bought the CD about 4 years ago when Gandalf was a kitten. It really looks like you have a fish tank and you can even choose which fish you want.
