We got our Christmas snow about a week late, but the girls had a blast playing in it!  Rosie showed Lily the joys of eating snow, and Lily looked like Randy from A Christmas Story because she shuffled around the yard without being able to put her arms down.  Listen for her “buh-bye” at the end of the video.  It cracks me up so much that I keep listening to it over and over.  Of course, I am her Dad 🙂

Tiny Bubbles December 27, 2007

BubblesChampagne is synonymous with ringing in the New Year, and having smaller bubbles in your bubbly leads to a better taste.  According to scientists reporting in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, smaller bubbles mean there are more bubbles to carry the taste and aroma to the surface of your glass.  Their study explains that the bubbles begin with minute cylindrical fibers deposited on champagne glasses from the air or towels used to dry the glasses.

While the scientists are still hard at work creating smaller bubbles, you can try this fun experiment next week.  Wipe your glass vigorously with a towel before pouring for extra effervescense.  For fewer bubbles, avoid towel drying and keep the glass turned upside down.  But, do turn it right side up before toasting 😉
