Bloglines has taught me much in our short-lived relationship. For instance, I learned today from Accidental Hedonist that coffee both originated in Ethiopia (!) and is the second most traded commodity in the world (!!).

Also, I am thoroughly enjoying Wine Sediments. In the week I have subscribed to this feed I've discovered the depths of the cork debate and learned a bit about one of my recently favored alcoholic indulges: port. A $2.50 tawny is what I picked up on the last day Comet Liquors was open. Its price had been slashed and it was the only mildly drinkable bottle of anything I could find on the picked over and bare shelves. It served me well and was actually quite delicious. I just wished I had a fancy cheese plate to accompany it!
