Question for owners of robot vacuums, I have only hardwood floors or really ancient linolium, but I also have furniture in those rooms, so its not an easy floor layout for a robot vacuum. Any suggestion for which one I should get? I suffer from dust allergies (and apparently every other allergy this time around), so something with a HIPAA filter would be good. Any suggestions? On grad school salary I really cannot afford a 600 dollar vaccuum.

There are 2 types, Chardonnay from oak barrels (buttery, oak bombs, chewing on furniture type) or Un-Oaked ones, like Iron Horse Un-Oaked.

Just like last month's Pub, where a couple were posting 10 days in the old March Pub.


Edit: Hmmm, one of the same wooters posting in the old March Pub was posting in the old April Pub!

Why? It just says that people look for the thing near the top that says PUB. Problem remains. If we went to continuous pub, like the what are you drinking thread, that would be the only permanent answer to this.

Is that true though? Clark seems to want to express terroir and the growing season as much as Cathy. They simply have different ways of getting there. Is alcohol adjustment using reverse osmosis really all that different than chaptalizing, bleeding off free-run juice, or watering down the juice?

But then again, we wouldn't have fun with the OCD folks! Posting in the old Pub drives them nuts!


It's almost like the times we fought over who got to start the weekly Pub! And the Alternative Pub!

Let's say some is going to go with their family for a vacation in NYC this August. Does anyone have specific hotels/places to stay that one would recommend. This family hopes to stay close to Central Park.
