Coldest Night of the Year

You know it’s cold out when the Kelvin scale makes more sense than the Celsius scale [Fahrenheit is just another German word that makes me giggle].  It’s 240 Kelvin tonight by the way.

How on earth is a man supposed to warm up on a night like this? It’s hard to think clearly when I’m mad at the fact that tomorrow is my garbage day and global warming is clearly just a left-wing conspiracy designed to get me to stand in the cold, sort my garbage and freeze my right-wing off.

Thankfully brother-in-law from PA thought ahead and bought me a nice bottle of Port for Christmas. If you don’t drink port then it’s time to make and keep a resolution to do so in 2014.


Noval Black isn’t available at the LCBO but they have a nice selection nonetheless. Photographic proof is shown below. Start with a ruby port, or a late bottled vintage if you can get one.  They run under $20 and can warm you up for an extended period of time!
