Winter is still with us. The drive is a sheet of ice, but Nicholas can lift a 70lb bag of sand as easily as if it were a can of tennis balls. We are eeking out the dwindling wood supply and tracking down under $10 wine. Latest finds are the best this winter: Beaujolais Village Chateau de la Carelle, $9.00; Sangre de Toro, $7.50; Ciconia, $7.00. No prizes for guessing where you buy them. Not long now and we shall be rolling in the mud.
