Valentine's Day Fizz

Last years I did a post on a few sparkling wines perfect for Valentines Day. So, to add to that, here are few more for this year.

Just the other day, I found myself at the liquor store picking up some fizz for my upcoming birthday. I entered the store with my mind set on picking up two bottles of my recent favourite, Asti Spumante. Then, there lied the problem. Before me stood two bookcase like facings of sparkling wines, and as I glanced for the Asti, I saw a few more that starting to tinkle my taste buds.
Naked Grape Sparkling Wine: Rose and White Wine
bottled in British Columbia, Canada
 (Retail $12.99 - 750ml) 

The last time I visited this section of the liquor store was over a year ago, but I never noticed this variety of Naked Grape. I drink Naked Grape all the time, yet I never knew they offered a sparkling wine until now. The "Fizz" varieties were released in June 2011.
Dr. Loosen Sparkling Riesling
(Retail $18.99 - 750 ml)

I have been a fan of white wine for most of my life, however over the years I have noticed a particular satisfaction towards Rieslings. As I stood in front of that display, the Dr. Loosen label clearly stating "Riesling" stood out.
Martini & Rossi Asti, Prosecco and Sparkling Rose, Minis
(Retail $14.99 - 187ml/4 pack)

Although these were not in the Sparkling Wine/Champaign display, I found these packs closer to the checkout. As I mentioned, I favour Martini & Rossi Asti, so clearly these cute bottles caught my eye.

Over the years, even though a fan of white wine, I have developed a liking for reds, particular Shiraz and Syrah. This recent trip to the liquor was definitely an eye opener. Did you know they offered Shiraz sparkling wines? Well I didn't!

Project: Motorola DCT3416

My brothers Motorola DCT3416 died, and I figured I would attempt to fix it. I want to start out by saying I know very little about PVR's, other than somewhere buried inside is a standard computer hard drive. While dropping off the DCT3416, my brother informs me that it doesn't turn on, and that it makes this clicking noise. My first assumption is that the HD is corrupt and or damaged and preventing the machine from booting. Replacing the internal HD should produce a simple fix, so lets go about doing just that. Replacing the internal HD is going to be slightly more complicated than originally anticipated as the rear of the DCT3416 has 3 tamper proof/security screws, which I do not have a tool for. Instead I used a series of pliers, and 10 minutes later had all the screws removed. Here is what the tamper proof/security screws look like, once removed.   I should add that there is also a plastic security tab, just above the IEEE 1394 jacks, which disintegrated when I attempted to

Blogger Has Died

Dear friends, fans, and followers. For the past few months my blog has been overrun with errors, making changes very difficult (if not impossible). On numerous occasions I've attempted to reset my blogger template, install a new templates, and even restore from an older version but I'm still unable to add or remove specific content from my blogs template. The initial problematic area was the blog post section which refuses to accept any changes or alterations to the date, author, title or social media links. I have suffered through this problem, but as of late it appears that the layout is now no longer accepting changes, and when displayed is no longer centered. If anyone has suggestions on how to fix these blogger issues, please email me. As a result, I will no longer be updating, as its too difficult maintain this blog.
