You don't put them out for all to see??
When my mom (who does not agree with drinking at all) saw all of the corks, she nearly had a heart attack. I just told her most of them came from using cooking wine laugh Seemed like the right thing to do at the time! laugh laugh laugh

I always kept them out...in a huge glass jar.
Well, several huge glass jars. shocked
But, last time I packed to move I just left them packed up...less to pack next time.

They are all from Moet and Chandon champagne.
...I used to have quite a liking for that stuff! lala

there's 2 of us......and....and....uh....1 bottle is only 4 glasses...IF you use a wine glass. I use a wine glass...or an ice tea glass.....fewer trips to the refrigerator! laugh

you actually sat there and counted all of those!??? There are a couple in a small glass box that i keep. They are special corks from when Stephen and I were dating. They don't count though....I was underage then. laugh

We don't usually have beer around the house...unless we're having a party or something. I buy wine that I like to drink...and then STephen usually gets his wine from his father. It just so happens that his father MAKES wine.....easier on the wallet! laugh laugh

well, that certainly is interesting.
We have a friend who has the largest collection of cigarettes in the country. Every box is unopened and different. Like, he has collections of the different brands, but not a single box....or carton...or whatever is like another. So, like in one year say Marlboro came out with a red box, a yellow box, a green one and a blue one....he has all 4 colors in whatever design it was at the time. He has an entire room with the walls covered in them. That room is the bar and on the top of the bar are all of the match books from the bars that he and his wife have been to. The covers are torn off of the books and then were arranged on the bar top and laqoured over them...its really neat.

We are out of town this weekend, but I found a little time to pop in. Stephen's dad bottles alot in gallon sized jugs. I don't drink his wine often....anyways...."everyone" was at the house this weekend....Stephen and me, his brother and his fiance, her parents.....I'm currently sitting at the kitchen counter looking at 2 empty gallon sized wine bottles. ....I didn't drink, I watched our neice and then went to bed. laugh
