a reminder about the oak leaf wine at walmart

if you need some wine for your christmas dinner or a gift, let me remind you about the walmart wine.
the brand is "oak leaf" and walmart has several varieties.
every one we have tried is quite tasty and my research tells me that they get good reviews from folks who really know wine.
read one here.
and a funny one here.
the wines are amazingly priced at $2.97.
my favorite is the shiraz and my DH likes the cabernet sauvignon.
as for the whites, the zinfandel and pinot grigio are excellent.

erin's comments about the pinot grigio:
I think I am a red wine drinker. It was good because Mick really liked it, but I was dreaming of the cabernet the whole time which Mick doesn't really like. So, I might try a chardonnay next time and let you know. It is all for research so we can give the people the best information!

john mayer's new cd $3.99

maybe you night owls can get this.
i just found it and am assuming it's just for today.
*looks like it's still good today 12/19!* had john mayer's new cd "battlestudies" mp3 download for just $3.99.
my DH loves his music.
i have been so impressed with amazon's music download's.
and you can easily drag them to your itunes.
or with the amazon mp3 downloader, you can send them straight to your itunes.
they give me music credits, and always have good deals going on.
like the 25 days of free christmas music.
or 100 albums for just $5.

go here to get the john mayer.
