Wine is good for your vision!

I was just watching Jay Lenno - and he reported that a research article has shown that drinking wine is good for your vision!

Maybe that MD 20/20 label means more than we thought?????

Hmmm. You might be on to something, Michael. Except...I've noticed that when I drink a lot of wine my vision goes screwy.

LOL - I never could wrap my lips around a bottle of MD 20/20 ... back in my college days it was Boones Farm Strawberry (flavored, apple) wine if you wanted to impress a girl ... when you cooked a special meal for them - it didn't matter what you cooked, it was just the fact that you could and did!

Oh man, I remember Boones Farm Apple Wine. It's probably the reason I didn't drink most of my adult life!
