Roper told me to test the Wi-Fi

The desk has been delivered. It had to be half taken apart before they could take it through the door into the office.
Roper is upstairs reassembling the computer system.
The desk is bigger than I expected, but very pretty.
While he is doing that I was downstairs reassembling the pantry.
Something had leaked in the pantry cabinet. The particle boards were warped and one corner has some serious mildew. I did my best to clean it up, but in the end we decided to go to Home Depot and get new ones. The shelves are in. I have replaced most of the contents of the cabinet except for the stuff I am throwing out. We will never need to buy paper plates and plastic cups again. (At least it seems that way.)
I haven't replaced the stuff on the top shelf as it is mostly bottles and they need to wiped off.
How long does wine keep?

The pantry cabinate was one of the things on my list once I was unemployed. The leaking ginger ale can pushed the job up the list.
My official last day will be 6/30.
It's going to be a beautiful summer.

"And I shall call it DESK-ZILLA!"

"And did you get a new house for DESK-ZILLA?"

It's a damned big desk, yes, it's really large
And if it could float, it would be a barge.
It is larger by far
Than the smallest of cars
It's a big desk after all.

It's a big desk after all.
It's a big desk after all.
It's a big desk after all.
It's a damned big desk.

Oh, dear. You mean Bruce Springsteen is singing it now?

I would have pictured something more like "Made in the USA"...

"How long does wine keep?"

Several years, at least.

If it's one of the ones with the vintage year on the label, you at least know how long its been around so far, and the more you paid for it originally the better chance it has of still being good several years later.

So there's little hope for the Sutter Home rose in the handy quart jug, huh?
: )

You got any recipes that call for Red Wine Vinegar?

Thinking it over a bit, Sutter Home is a respectable product line; I particularly like their white zinfandel.

So unless the wine has been drastically overheated somehow, it has a good chance of still being drinkable. And in a quart jug, it probably has a screwcap lid rather than a cork, so finding out for sure won't take too much sweat-equity.

Don't be fooled. (And don't believe the "experts.") How long wine lasts unopened is a total crapshoot. Five years is a good bet for most wine; if you open a wine that's less than five years old and it tastes bad, well, it probably tasted bad when they poured it out of the moldy, half-rotted oak casks. Strong (high-alcohol) wine will last a lot longer. Hundred year old ports are unremarkable, tho not cheap.

I still stand boggled by that 18-month-old opened bottle of may wine you had in your fridge. That pretty much beats all, and attests to the preservative power of woodruff, which after all is hallucinogenic at high concentrations and apparently is fatal to certain microorganisms that spoil wine.
