Who knew? Spices can prevent cancer.

There’s something primal and satisfying about starting a fire, cracking a brew, and throwing on some slabs of meat and hearing them sizzle while smelling the render fat.

On wine. A Tragedy.

I agree: Drink what you like!

Wine is pretty cool. Not only does it taste nice and help to lubricate conversations, but there is also a mystique about it. People want to know wine so that they seem more cultured.
