    I've not tried that, but the wine in a box is the same thing, just incased in a cardboard box.

    I've started buying some wine that way because sometimes I just want a glass or a bit for cooking and hate to have to open a whole bottle. Sometimes a glass or two. It keeps fresh because there's no oxidation...and the boxed wines (well some, not all) have really come a long way. I like the concept!

    And that size would be good for a picnic basket...really lighten the load!

    My rant of the day is... Books that I check out at the Library that are full of cigarette smoke. If you want to smoke that is your business but, have some respect for those of us who are allergic to cigarette smoke and puff it in another direction and not into the book. I tried setting it outside to air. I finally gave up and returned it to the Library. grumble. Time for a Kindle?? I love a real book.

    I find that I have the same asthma allergic reaction to smoke residue as I do to smoke itself. It's really frustrating, not just for the obvious health/medical reasons, but also in that smokers perceive me as radical and fussy because the reaction doesn't happen dramatically all it once; it kind of "sneaks up." (I have same as with dog/cat dander -- and I'm just as allergic to service dogs as "regular" dogs. But I'm the evil one. [/soapbox]) I just hate the chest/upper back pain, the congestion, the dizziness and extreme fatigue, and the "jumpy" side-effects of the inhaler, and very few people understand. Or care to.

    As someone with a severe cigarette smoke allergy, I really understand! I went through a rough patch where my inhaler wasn't working.
    I got switched to many different ones, with little help. On my own I researched and learned about vitamin D and how important it is to asthma.
    I was deficient and I'm just now pulling back up. I wanted to put that out there, in case it might help others.

    Did you tell someone at the library about the book? Maybe they don't care, but I would if it was a library I worked at. The smell of stale cigarette smoke is just disgusting. It's horrifying how it can completely permeate a borrowed library book so fast, isn't it?

    My old library always sprays the books. As a smoker who is cutting down, I'm beginning to smell the smoke. I think it's bad, and that helps me not to smoke so much!

    Some of the books that kids return to my library end up stinky, too. I wrap them in newspaper and it sucks the smell off of them.
