red wine glasses

Do you have feelings of inadequacy? Do you suffer from shyness? Do you sometimes wish you were more assertive?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist about Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cabernet Sauvignon is the safe, natural way to feel better and more confident about yourself and your actions. It can help ease you out of your shyness and let you tell the world that you’re ready and willing to do just about anything.

You will notice the benefits of Cabernet Sauvignon almost immediately and, with a regimen of regular doses, you can overcome any obstacles that prevent you from living the life you want to live.

Shyness and awkwardness will be a thing of the past and you will discover many talents you never knew you had.

Stop hiding and start living.

Cabernet Sauvignon may not be right for everyone. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not use it. However, women who wouldn’t mind nursing or becoming pregnant are encouraged to try it.

Side effects may include: dizziness, nausea, vomiting, incarceration, loss of motor control, loss of clothing, loss of money, loss of virginity, delusions of grandeur, table dancing, headache, dehydration, dry mouth, and a desire to sing Karaoke and play all-night rounds of Strip Poker, Truth Or Dare, and Naked Twister.

* The consumption of Cabernet Sauvignon may make you think you are whispering when you are not.
* The consumption of Cabernet Sauvignon may cause you to tell your friends over and over again that you love them.
* The consumption of Cabernet Sauvignon may cause you to think you can sing.
* The consumption of Cabernet Sauvignon may create the illusion that you are tougher, smarter, faster and better looking than most people.

Please feel free to share this important information with as many as you feel may benefit!

Now, just imagine what you could achieve with a good Shiraz…


Chocolate and Red Wine

27 08 2011

Yes, I know it is a glass of white wine but I didn't have a photo of a glass of red wine to hand.

Yes, that got your attention, didn’t it?

It is great to know that the Australian research dollar is going to the important things in life – guilt-free chocolate, red wine and anti-ageing.

No wonder the lifestyle is so great over here! We obviously have our priorities straight.

Using anti-oxidants that are naturally occurring in red wine and dark chocolate (please note, DARK chocolate, not sugary milk chocolate), Dr Aaron Micallef of the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology and an associate investigator for the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence for Free Radical Chemistry and Biotechnology has designed compounds that mimic their actions. These new compounds have potential application in fighting disease.

Anti-oxidants “mop up” free radicals, which are naturally occurring and are known to cause disease. It is hoped that these new compounds will work in much the same way.

It is not adequately explained why he wanted to design a molecule that mimics the effects of two substances we already know work AND are much nicer to consumer than medicine.

Meanwhile, time for another glass of red-wine and some guilt-free chocolate!
