Vinicide - an excellent Friday night activity

Our colleague Linda gave Stephen the brilliant card pictured here to congratulate him on his doctorate. A bottle accompanied the card (some very delicious-looking red burgundy) and inside she wrote "what better reason for a spot of vinicide than a successfully completed PhD."
Not too much vinicide this week but tonight is Friday and we've enjoyed some champagne with a bit of the smoked salmon left over from Christmas. Earlier in the week we did drink our only bottle of Le Mas de l'Ecriture from Jonquières in the Languedoc when friends came over for supper.
Anyway the card is by Liverpuddlian artist Steve Best and you can find more of his work here. Alcohol seems to figure quite prominently in it.
Anyway now the doctorate is over perhaps the Herr Doktor will start a wine blog, we'll see!
