Women For Winesense

WWS is delighted to present a "Sherry and Soup Tasting” with cookbook author Joanna Pruess and restaurant critic Bob Lape at Pulse, a Pan-Asian restaurant in the heart of Rockefeller Center. Joanna and Bob will guide us through a tasting of several sherries paired with two soups featured in Joanna's new cookbook, Soup for Every Body: Low Carb, High Protein, Vegetarian and More.

P.S. On CNN, they featured this graph of baby names; also try this color test.

Living Wills; Student sailors rescue 49 Haitians

With all the Terry Schiavo stuff going on, please remember to do a living will. A related ethics article. I was reading up on locked-in states (paralyzed, but aware) and found this interesting book: The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby who was trapped in his body for 2 years.

p.s. A friend's research sailboat recently rescued 49 Haitians stranded at sea.
p.p.s. There wasn't a single pony in the Pony Express, just horses! [Other strange facts]
