Hosts is a Windows hack and artifact from much simpler times, but yes, the function of the hosts file is DNS resolution - albeit just for very limited cases. I believe it came about when networking...

Tonight was the remainder of the 2017 Turley Old Vines bottle. I used to love it but now it's just too much for me! Too much alcohol, too much body, too much fruit. It's a bomb.

I either leave it out on the counter for a couple hours or just microwave it at half power until thawed (though the microwave seems to always cook the edges no matter how careful I think I'm being).

You know, I have only tried Sauternes once or twice but was never impressed. Maybe I just don't like sweet wines? But I like port and ice wine just fine. Maybe I just haven't had good Sauternes.

For comparison, we pay $69 for 100/10 from Spectrum (though $46 for the first 12 months). We could pay around $150 for 940/20 I think.
