There have been people to claim that their iPhone works on T-mobile. I am going to soon be trying it out as I am with T-mobile for two more years as part of my contract.

Figured it might be a good experiment. I’ll report back what I find.

Vinturi Wine Aerator – review and info

Vinturi Wine Aerator

Includes: Vinturi, no-drip stand, and carry pouch.

Wine Needs to Breathe Wine which has been allowed to breathe tastes better. As wine breathes, it opens up, and releases its intended aromas and flavors. traditionally, decanters were used to aerate wine. However, decanting is time consuming, cumbersome, and inconvenient. Vinturi’s patent pending design speeds up this process with ease and convenience. Perfect aeration in the time it takes to pour a glass. All the taste with none of the wait. Simply hold vinturi over a glass and pour wine through. vinturi draws in and mixes the proper amount of air for the right amount of time, allowing your wine to breathe instantly. You’ll notice a better bouquet, enhanced flavors and smoother finish. It’s that fast. It’s that easy. When wine is poured in the vinturi, its design creates an increase in the wine’s velocity and a decrease in its pressure. This pressure difference draws in air, which is mixed with wine for perfect aeration. What really matters is vinturi’s affect on wine. Better Bouquet Sample the nose. You’ll appreciate the subtle aeromatic differences and the full aroma of the wine. Vinturi allows wine to display its intended aromas. Enhanced Flavors Go ahead, take a sip. Vinturi’s wine tastes better. It is more flavorful and has better mouthfeel. It tastes like a richer, more expensive wine. It tastes like it was intended to and is more enjoyable. Smoother Finish Ahh. Vinturi’s aeration is very effective at softening tannins which results in a much more pleasant finish. Any bitterness or bad aftertaste is reduced or eliminated.

Pasadena Rose Parade 2008

We are going to the Rose Parade in Pasadena tomorrow we have seats in pretty much the same location as last year, near the Norton Simon Museum.

I’ll be taking lots of pictures to share with you.

I was very interested to learn that this year the parade will feature audio tour of the floats. This is a good addition for those that want to learn more about the floats as the go by. Especially since those at the parade are not able to hear what those at home are hearing, unless then bring a radio or tv.
