"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
A bird nest is a symbol of the home. When placed on the family Christmas tree, it reminds us that we strive to make our home a place where family members grow and prosper. Considered a good luck symbol, the bird nest represents all the love and warmth, enthusiasm, and commitment required in creating the happiest of homes....at Christmas and always. *We had a bird next in one of the Christmas trees my husband brought home one Christmas. I saved it and now it goes on every Christmas tree to remind me of the symbol of the home.
