There is a really great and affordable wine out now. Its the Mondavi Woodbridge Zinfandel. This stuff is being sold for around four dollars a bottle. Its almost needless to say but I have been in case mode for this deal. It is a great, well-balanced wine for everyday use.
This wine's zinfandel grapes hail from California's Lodi region, where this variety has a long history dating back to the Gold rush. I personally like the subtle notes of vanilla and cedar in the finish. If you see some, give it a try as you won't be disappointed.

Spyware on Internet Explorer is like herpes. Just when you think its gone, it flares up again. This spyware nonsense has got to stop. I am so upset with the people who are involved with this sort of crap that it is making me mentally unstable. Do these folks realize what they are doing to PCs?
Too bad the people with the pursestrings here where I work are more interested in trading advertising time for "free" PCs when they could have just bought non~microsoft computers to work with...
Apple comes to mind as well as linux but hey, what's better than a free PC and countless hours of OT for the socially vacant losers who work at the helpdesk?
