NYT says: Etymologically, "procrastination" is derived from the Latin verb procrastinare
meaning to put off until tomorrow. But its more than just voluntary delaying.
Procrastination is also derived from the ancient Greek word "akrasia"
meaning doing something against our better judgment.
And some doctors say procrastination is a form of self harm!
Stop the procrastination. You know you should. Just do it!

Do DaGiacomo with Pesce (Seafood)
and a Bottle of Barone Pizzini Franciacorta (Brut) Animante! $37
Why so expensive ?
and other things you should know about Franciacorta:
Franciacorta is a small wine-producing area in Lombardy. Famous for its sparkling wines made
in the Methode Champenoise from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and a small percentage of Pnot Blanc,
the Franciacorta wine region is located in the Brescia province.
Although relatively unknown in globally, Franciacortais known as Italy's finest sparkling wine.
Due respect is still paid to the traditional and better-known classics such as Prosecco, but these
lighter-hearted styles are aimed at straightforward enjoyment rather than complexity or finesse.
Tasting notes for Franciacorta Brut wines sound remarkably like those for Champagne
with frequent references to biscuit, brioche, lemon and lees.
So, basically Champagne for less and its Italian!
Costieres de Nimes is the most southerly appellation of the Rhone Wine Region
in southeastern France. The wines of the area are said to have been on the table
of Ancient Greeks and, hence, are among the oldest known wines in the world.
A typical Costieres de Nimes red wine, made from the classic Southern Rhone Blend,
is robust and spicy, and perfectly suited to the rustic local cuisine.
To enjoy the name Costieres de Nimes, winesrequire Grenache, Syrah
and Mourvedre to make up at least 60 percent of the finished red and rosé wines.
Cinsaut, Marselan and Carignan are also allowed. The appellation permits white wines
made from Grenache Blanc, Marsanne and Roussanne.

This southern French red blend reminds me of those ripe mulberries I would pick all summer.
The soft, juicy fruit and bright acidity lead to a long, dry finish with very supple tannin.
At this price, it is quite likely that this wine will become your go-to red
for barbecues and leisurely summer evenings with friends.
A blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Shiraz, 15% Malbec & 12% Petit Verdot
Winery Notes: Intense and deep ruby red in color with rich
aromas of black fruit and elegant notes of sandalwood.
The palate is full bodied and layered.
Well integrated tannins give the wine a toned and precise structure.
The wine concludes with a long velvety finish.
Our Notes: AWEEEEEEEEEEEEESOME!
For those of you who watch "The Wine Show" with Matthew Rhys on Hulu,
Klein Costantia was featured. The winery pick their grapes at night!

Us Too !
Wall Street Journal reports that Scientists hope Haikus about space
will make science less tedious. 335 Haikus were submitted this year
for the annual Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Houston.
So, we thought - you know where this is going -
we would ask Andy Hale, Director of The Asheville School of Wine,
to write a Haiku to bring wine out of the special and into your everyday world.
Andy has two for us:
You are my daily reward
Just one more glass please
By my dinner plate
It sits, befriending the food
Drink with a good meal
