AN INTERESTING COLLECTION OF BONES THAT MAY OR MAY NOT BE REALLY REALLY FREAKING OLD AND MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE SOME RELATION TO A MONKEY

So, apparently they think they’ve maybe finally found the proof that makes them almost pretty close to being surer than before that there is a slight possibility to find a way to link humans and monkeys as having the same ancestors. It’s name is Ida, the 47-million year-old “mother of all monkeys.” I personally am just blown away, I mean…this changes everything!

PROOF THAT TEXAS MIGHT ACTUALLY SECEDE ONE OF THESE DAD GUM DAYS

Apparently the great state of Texas is trying to keep “all ya’ll” out by building a wall around the perimeter. You can read the entire account right here, but because most of you hate clicking on links, here’s some excerpts of the article.

“As governor, it is my responsibility to do whatever’s necessary to maintain the territorial integrity of  Texas. You shouldn’t have to worry about some American coming in here, using your goods and services, and taking away your job.”
“The wall is comprised of a razor-wire fence equipped with motion sensors, surveillance cameras, and guard towers; a 70-foot-wide trench with expert marksmen stationed along its perimeter; a roadway patrolled by armed vehicles equipped with synchronized electromagnetic wave gradiometers to detect Americans attempting to tunnel their way into Texas; and a second, third, and fourth fence.”

Texas to Secede

So apparently the governor of Texas was quoted as saying that Texas could(not necessarily would) secede from the union, during a speech at a tea party rally yesterday.

Dear Texas,

Please don’t secede. If ya’ll left us, we’d be screwed.

Much obliged, Pearl.

In other news, I went wine tasting today. For my brother’s birthday, we went out with him, his girlfriend and my parents to two different wineries in the area. Between the six of us, we bought seven bottles of wine. They were sogood! I really like sweeter wines and dessert wines, although sometimes drier wine is nice with some spicy Italian food. My personal favorite (which I didn’t buy because it was expensive) was this white dessert ice wine, where the grapes are left on the vine until the outside temperature drops to 15 degrees. Only at this point are the grapes harvested and pressed–still frozen. The two wineries we went to were the Carpenter Creek winery and the Pasek Cellars winery. Pasek Cellars is known for their fruit wines, of which they have an amazing selection, including everything from Pineapple to a Late Harvest Voignier–which is made of grapes that have been left on the vine as long as possible to get that vine-ripened sweetness (I bought a bottle of this). Carpenter Creek is more of a wine-drinkers winery with a mostly dry selection, but an amazingly fresh and crisp quality to the wine–not unlike drinking from a mountain spring. So, your task should you choose to accept it: Go on a wine-tasting tour.

Afterwards, we all went a local tavern and had some pan-fried oysters. Yum!

Last but not least: Easter candy is now 75% off. Yay!
