Ah, good to be back from a lovely week in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Beautiful idyllic setting, friendly people, a slew of American expats, and excellent weather. A beautiful, classy spouse. And no television--I did not have to listen to one Big Media propaganda piece, not one single utterance from one Democrat mouthpiece!

Paradise. Very good for the blood pressure; I highly recommend it. And San Miguel is not a bad place to start.

With that said, vacations are great, but there is a lot to be said for being home again. And what better way to celebrate my return to the Greatest Country on Earth than by reading that quite a bit of my activity of the previous week may have actually be good for my health(!):

YET ANOTHER REASON FOR DRINKING:

A recent report (seen on Science Daily--yes, we’re interested in science as well as food) from researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia points to a discovery made that shows that red wine, beyond the numerous current known health benefits, probably can work to protect humans from a number of common food-borne diseases. The researchers have found that, “red wines--Cabernet, Zinfandel and Merlot in particular--have anti-microbial properties that defend against food-borne pathogens and don’t harm naturally useful bacteria like probiotic bacteria.”

You can't be too careful.

No, you can't... (Personally--especially when in Latin America--I highly reccommend a good Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina.)
