In an effort to move on from the other thread, Lol......  What is helicopter parenting IYO?  Do you see it only at school or in other settings as well?  What does it look like?  Provide examples if you can, Thank you.

Lol, dumps and runs!  Why does that remind me of the old school thread when kids jumped out of moving cars for school, Ha!

I call white zin "wine for people that don't like wine".

Ditto. I don't think I've seen white zin served anywhere since my kegger days in college...I kind of rank it with Boone's Farm wines.

It's a great cheap wine, And typically what I stock in my fridge.

Great and cheap cannot be in the same sentence.  Great and inexpensive maybe.  But cheap and great are mutually exclusive.

Or sad.  Amusing or sad. ;)  The last thing you ever mentioned was the term "universal."  I did.  Instead you've  used the word "regional."  I don't think anyone, including Bord, Green, Regina(!) have agreed with that.  Sild has something in violation of our constitution ~ involuntary servitude...Being "forced" to help at the kid's birthday party.  That would be a pocket or an exclusively regional and international kids' birthday tradition, not recognized throughout the US.

It may be a great cheap wine, but it isn't a great wine...big difference.
