Burgundy or Chardonnay?

Drink
yes, water –
wine; in moderation
of course: red or
white

Burgundy is a shade of reddish brown associated with the Burgundy wine
of the same name, which in turn is named after the Burgundy region of
France which in turn is named after the ancient Burgundians, a Germanic tribe.
The color burgundy is similar to other shades of dark red such as maroon,
cordovan, and oxblood, but differs from each of these in subtle ways.
For example, cordovan with its origin in equine leather used for shoes
has a slightly fairer, lighter brown color whilst oxblood, typically
used in description of clothing, in particular leather,has both a much
richer red and a little more blue.
The first recorded use of “burgundy” as a color name in English was in 1881.
“Burgundies”—are dry red wines made from Pinot noir grapes
and white wines made from Chardonnay grapes.

Just Karma 17 for June 2015 wp

Just Karma 17

Well Supped

local wine shop also has
salads, sandwiches and soups –
this last Saturday in June
delightful end to the day

Note: posting this evening since I may not have service
tomorrow. Using Hubby’s cell phone’s hot spot.

The Tanaga is a Filipino poem.
It consists of four lines with seven syllables each; the rhyme scheme is AABB.
Traditional tanagas don’t have titles and are composed in the Tagalog language.
Most have been handed down through oral history and contain proverbs and moral lessons.
(Similar to the tanaga is the ambahan, which has an indefinite length.)

Modern Tanaga
The tanaga has been in danger of becoming a dying art form. The Cultural
Center of the Philippines and the National Commission of the Arts have been
trying to revive it. Several groups have been promoting the form in English.
The form is beginning to change slightly – not only are tanagas appearing in
more frequently in English, they are picking up titles and varying their rhyme
forms (for example, AABB, ABBB, ABAB, ABBA, AAAB, BAAA, ABCD, etc).

Plane Observations (6-10 of 10)

Plane Observations (6-10 of 10)

6
Pre-board A1, luck of the draw for my e-ticket
So I snag an aisle exit seat, which has more leg room
but there is a trade off – the seat doesn’t go back
7
Full flight – podium announcement
Do you want to take a later flight
I think I’ll pass that free pass…I wanna see my guy.
8
About halfway – enjoyed free wine from my coupon
Really though paid for with overtime
and thankfully the young’uns on the flight aren’t cryin’
9
Trade offs – middle of the plane means
the loo is at one end or the other of the plane
which is OK when you want to stretch your legs
10
Three hours lost, will gained on the way home
who said time travel doesn’t exist ~
it certainly wasn’t Dr. Who!
