The visit of Reading to The Emirates looms and ahead of that Arsene has confirmed that Denilson is the only definite returnee. A strange case of hamstring injury for the young Brazilian for there has been little mention of him on the official site in his absence. The other walking wounded are not to be found on the bench although Manuel Almunia is a possible. In this instance, were I in Arsene’s shoes I would put Fabianski on the pitch ahead of Lehmann. There is little to lose in doing so and

Wine Storage Is The Key To Preserving And Aging Your Wine

Wine storage is key to the success of any collection. If you enjoy collecting find wines then you will want to look into the best of all wine storage options. There are many different ways to store your wine but no matter which wine storage solution you choose you will need to keep the conditions constant.

The temperature of any wine storage space needs to be at a constant 50-60 degrees. There should also be plenty of ventilation of the area and this wine storage should be far away from the main area of the house. You do not want to have your wine collection suffering due to too much vibration and you need to keep any source of light to a minimum. No sunlight should be permitted into the wine storage area.

You can use a wine cellar for your wine storage or you can have a special cooler. Wine racks are a necessary part of your wine storage. The wine racks can be made of metal or wood and the wine storage that you choose will be a matter of personal taste. Both of these sorts of racks are wonderful to look at but the metal racks tend to be more flamboyant and stylish while the wood racks are classic and traditional in style.

You may want to choose your racks in order to have them match the rest of your wine storage solution. The final choices that you make will be affected somewhat by whether or not you are planning to show off your wine cellar to your friends. If you are then your wine storage solutions will need to be a little more coordinated.

So look into the wine racks and other wine storage options that will all look well together. Your wine storage area can look like those of a professional wine collector. It is not hard to do but it can cost you a little money.

Your temporary wine storage options are a little simpler. Just before you serve your wine you will probably want to chill it, this of course depends on the wine. In order to store your wine for chilling you can look into cool wine storage solutions. Wine coolers are easy to find, you can find them in many department stores or wine stores. Even the Internet is a great source for finding these types of wine storage options.

On a budget Posted by Leah as Home Front, One for the Piggy Bank, Shopping I know nothing about wines, mainly because I am no wine-drinker (Ha! Go figure!) so the couple or so wine racks we saw at this new store in Woden we discovered last weekend would have no use for us. Instead, we bought more stuff for the house to organise some of our things, like a stainless steel rod for a toilet paper tissue holder to name a few. There were lots of lovely merchandise and I would have wanted to buy mor
