Last night, I got to chaperone the prom! Great fun… most kids were extremely well behaved and very personable. I am sure a few got frustrated with me, because I kept making sure there was "room for Jesus". Got there for the senior dinner at 6:30 and we shut the place down around 1:00 am. Seems like a great time was had by all! Nicholas had at least two dates that I could tell… complicated lad 🙂 Here is the link to the pictures – enjoy!!
I really wished that I had recorded Chris Spisak’s roast of the seniors.. HILARIOUS!!!!!

Low/no sulfite wines:
Valerie has developed some type of sensitivity to the sulfites in wine – so research time:
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SULFITE-FREE WINE.
Totally sulfite-free wines are an accident of nature; but wines low in sulfites or free of added sulfites do exist. Let us explain. Sulfites are a natural byproduct of the fermentation process. Fermenting yeasts present on all grape skins generate naturally occurring sulfites in amounts ranging from 6 to 40 parts per million (ppm.).
According to Professor Roger Boulton, Ph.D., University of California at Davis, Department of Viticulture and Enology, even if no sulfur dioxide is added to wine, fermenting yeasts will produce SO2 from the naturally occurring inorganic sulfates in all grape juices. Thus, says Boulton, it is impossible for any wine to be completely free of sulfur dioxide
