Yet another study touting the benefits of moderate alcohol consumption... check it out here:

But (and I've said this before).. most of us have skewed ideas of what makes up one drink.. be it beer or a mixed drink or wine. I mean, most of my wineglasses at home are pretty big. I once measured out of curiosity and the glasses comfortably hold 12 ounces-- when a typical serving is 5 ounces. So, one "Steph" glass is more than 2 servings of alcohol. That's just not gonna work!! I now use this little tiny glass I have from a wine tasting trip.. and it looks really small by comparison, but sticks to the proper serving size.

I found an insiders blog talking about this very issue of serving size here:

((Light bedtime reading, anyone? I made it to page 4 and them zoomed to the conclusion pages. http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0CXH/is_1_23/ai_57050104))

Heaven forbid McGorge Scott take a vacation or go to a track meet ((both things he does)) because email me looking for his photos!!

He's back and sent along these two gems of his favorite big buck. What a difference a few weeks make in those antlers!!
