Theme Thursday - Bottle

 

"Wine is sunlight, held together by water." -Galileo

The "mad" scientist made this and many other absurd observations such as "The sun does not revolve around the earth" leading quite a few people of his time to believe he had been imbibing in too much sunshine.

You may recognize the bottle of wine pictured here if you saw the movie Bottle Shock  featuring Bill Pullman, Alan Rickman and Dennis Farina.


You'll find many other interesting takes on "Bottles" at Theme Thursday.

My TT is about "Bottle Shock". Loved that movie but not as much as I love wine and California! Or maybe I should say California and wine...or California wine...

Awright. Now I am totally moving Bottle Shock to the top of my queue. The Thursday people have spoken.

Mine is here.

Hi there! Thanks for visiting. I signed on to TT last night after my husband recommended writing about alcoholism (ugh) and I finally thought of the movie (yay). I think I was #51 and I thought, "Nobody will ever get to me". So, when I began reading the posts this AM, I went backwards...50, 49, 48, etc. Found your entry later this morning. Too funny. We practically wrote the same words! I think we're the only two to reference it, tho'. I mean, if we'd written about a message in a bottle, well...
