My Top Ten Favorite Christmas Carols : FREE!

I enjoy listening to many Christmas Carols free courtesy of YouTube. So, I decided to put together a collection of my favorite. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do:

1. The first time I heard Callie & Colette sing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen I was stunned. I have heard this song hundreds of times. But it was never as beautiful as this. The way these sisters harmonize in this song, it is just magical:

2. The Drifter's version of White Christmas is my all time favorite. But this animation with Santa's and Rudolf's solos just bring a smile to my face.

3. Rascal Flatts' acapella version of "I'll Be Home For Christmas" makes you feel the sadness of someone away from home for Christmas

4. My six year old loves this version of Jingle Bells. He has enjoyed it every year for the past three years and I am certain he will enjoy it many years to come

5. Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You

6. Elvis Presley- Blue Christmas is a classic

7. Celtic women O Holy Night

8 Nat King Cole's "Christmas Song" Also known as Chestnuts Roasting On an Open Fire, is probably the first song I think of when I think of Christmas music.

9. Little Drummer Boy: Honestly, I have only heard this version this year. But it is now one of my favorites.

10 Jingle Bell Rock: Bobby Helms originally sang this song, but this is the best Youtube version I can find.

A Beer Drinker Discovers That Wine Tasting Is Junk Science!

As a beer drinker, I have often been puzzled by wine aficionados. Prices can vary wildly and to me, often the more expensive the wine the worse it tastes. I mean, I like a nice glass of white wine from time to time. But I don't understand paying $50 in a restaurant for a bottle of the stuff. Generally, when given the opportunity, I prefer a nice, cold draft. To me, one glass of wine pretty much tastes like the next one. Some are better, some worse just like with beer. But I would not pay $50 for a bottle of beer, why would I pay $50 for a bottle of wine? But in many restaurants, that is the going price and many people are happy to pay it. It is something I have never really understood. I have always wondered if I was alone in thinking that wine is pretty much wine. Today, I came across this article published in The Guardian in 2013 reviewing the evidence that wine tasting is junk science. For example, a scientist "presented the same Bordeaux superior wine to 57 volunteers a week apart and in two different bottles – one for a table wine, the other for a grand cru. The tasters were fooled." Another example "People could tell the difference between wines under £5 and those above £10 only 53% of the time for whites and only 47% of the time for reds. Overall they would have been just as a successful flipping a coin to guess." So, if people enjoy more expensive wine as much as less expensive wine, why are they willing to pay more for wine? I think I will open up a nice cold amber brew and ponder that question.
