Tiger Woods putts way to within two shots of Abu Dhabi lead

It's fun seeing Tiger stay in contention.

Tiger Woods putts way to within two shots of Abu Dhabi lead - ESPN:
"I thought I played well today; I hit the ball just as well as I did yesterday and made a couple more putts today, which is nice," Woods said. "But the golf course is playing difficult. It's starting to speed up a little bit and the greens were quicker, drier, and it was tough."

It's great to see Tiger in the mix!  Now he needs to get his putter going!

McIlroy Outduels Woods and Shares Lead in Abu Dhabi - NYTimes.com:
“It was a good ball-striking round,” Woods said. “I had a hard time reading the greens out there. The greens were pretty grainy, and I just had a hard time getting a feel for it. Toward the end I hit some pretty good putts, but over all I got fooled a lot on my reads.”

I love the sage advice from the folks at Wine-Knows Travel.  Read and learn!

Wine-Knows: Fine Wine and Gourmet Food Journeys for the Discerning Traveler: The Blind Leading the Blind:
"Learning about wine should be fun and should not be intimidating. Whatever type of blind tasting you conduct, set it up so responses are confidential and that people feel safe and comfortable to learn. I like to always remind folks that “Whether you like a wine (or not), it’s the only time that you can be a 100% right!"

Wine-Knows: Bordeaux Garage Wines - Les Garagistes

Wine-Knows: Fine Wine and Gourmet Food Journeys for the Discerning Traveler:
"Thanks to Robert Parker, many of these garage wines have a cult-like following. In 1995 Parker rated some of the garagiste wines higher than Chateau Petrus… and the wine world has been topsy-turvy ever since. Some feel the garage wines are nothing but fruit bombs with high alcohol that are for collectors rather than wine drinkers. One writer described their popularity as “ The Emperor’s New Clothes” syndrome."

China brims with fake, high-end bottles of wine

China brims with fake, high-end bottles of wine:
"Seizing on exploding demand, China's ever-resourceful knock-off artists have uncorked a lucrative new business: phony high-end wines.

Bootleggers are dousing the market with fakes using tactics so bold they would make a sommelier blush, including refilling empty bottles from famous chateaus with inferior vintages."

Wine-Knows: Fine Wine and Gourmet Food Journeys for the Discerning Traveler: Canelés—the Other Divine Treat from Bordeaux:
"The fluted exterior of a canelé is a glossy, dark-brown-almost-black shell of crunchy, carmelized sugar. Inside these small delectables have a soft, custard-like interior of rum and vanilla. Only 2 inches tall, they can be consumed in a few bites."
