bubbles.

how many bubbles are in a glass of champagne?

french researcher, gerard liger-belair

has spent more than 15 years studying the drink

and has released his best guess:

2,000,000.

that is science, trial and error, trying until you get it right.

in support of his very thorough study,

I may be conducting my own research this evening.

until they wake.

Standard

’twas new year’s eve at the lake house

and two of our

fellow celebratory foot soldiers

and their loyal dog were down 

though they made a miraculous comeback 

returning to the fray for the midnight hour

and it was something to behold.
