The bottle is then riddled, so that the lees settles in the neck of the wine bottle...
Manual riddling is still done for Prestige Cuvées in Champagne... mechanised riddling equipment (a gyropalette) is used instead.
Get to the bomma!
I have been saving that photograph for 23 years for this opportunity.FORWARD PLANNING.
I hope that most bomber pilots do not fly whilst intoxicated. Even Lancasters can be dangerous if piloted by drunk people. Yeah, I'm from the Fun Police*.* Actual designation made NZ radio station about people who complained about the Prime Minister saying on a radio programme that someone else's red shirt was "Gay".
Which is cooler: the Lancaster or the Avro Vulcan? Discuss.
Well, the Vulcan was certainly more pointy and one flew over Whanganui when I were a lad. But the Lancaster has a certain chunky charm and has four RR Merlin engines. We are going to need Nate Silver to decide this.
When I was But A Lad I had a glossy card set of military planes, and it was clear that the Vulcan and the Sabre were the coolest.
Probably the same one that flew over Wairoa. Sticks in the mind, that sort of thing.
Mosquito.All engines and fuel and guns.Mitsubishi A6M on steroids, with two engines. You wanna run fighter sweeps in the bad ol' days over the low countries, you did it with P-38s and Mossies...
No votes for Me-262 prince of turbojet?
Having seen the Hawker Hunter twice, I likes it very much. It is cool.
* Actual designation made NZ radio station about people who complained about the Prime Minister saying on a radio programme that someone else's red shirt was "Gay". Bizarre, what's "fun" about making a stupid slur?
Um, they are dorks.
Was recently enjoying the Vulcan that lands in the Caribbean in Thunderball.I'd vote for the P-38 on aesthetics.
