The team behind it was very dissapointed since they did run on scedule and the game had a lot of goodwill from both the gaming and game journalist community. The petitions, and general support and outcry after the new of the game reached the outside world moved the team so much that they decided to start a studio of their own: Telltale studio's, with the intention of reviving the once number 1 genre of computer games which reigned with now classic games such as Kings Quest, Police Quest, Leisure Suit Larry, Indiana Jones, Maniac Mansion and of course, Sam & Max.Made it to just before Galston Gorge by dark (17:30) - about 47K in daylight in 7.5 hours = average day pace (Friday) of ~ 6.27 km/hLight enough to stop using torches at approx. 89K (~06:20)- about 42K in the dark in 12.83 h = average night pace of 3.27 km/hAfter dawn covered 11K in ~2.73 h = average day pace (Saturday) of 4.02 km/hThe 22:54 total time was comprised of 19 h 52 min of run/walk plus 3 h 2 min of total checkpoint rest time.Average km/h for whole race (100km/22.9 h) was 4.37 km/hHome | Contact Us | HelpMore books elsewhere on our site[View All Columns]Caspar David Friedrich Poster Kunstdruck #9101040 ZweiEUR 21,00Verbleibende Zeit: 6T 11Std 52Min[ 1 2 3 ] næste side Fandt du ikke det du søgte efter?

Anything but a rat! Rosemary thinks that rats are flea bitten animals that have diseases, bite, and run through stink sewers. Rosemary doesn't like rats at all, but then the class wants a rat for a pet. She gets stuck being the ratkeeper with a boy names Brian and definitely wants to skip her turn to be the rat keeper, because she is afraid of them! I think this book is a good one, because it has lots of humor. Try it! You might even end up liking rats!RETURN TO TOPThe champagne cost 17.99, but like the TV commercial, the memory of it was priceless.Good champagne can do that to you.Fact is, champagne is the quintessential holiday or special-occasion wine. Of course, you don't have to wait for a Thanksgiving or a birthday; at my house the fact that's it's a pleasant Saturday night is enough to break out the bubbly. Famed economist John Maynard Keynes had the right idea: My only regret in life is that I did not drink more champagne. Champagne, of course, is sparkling wine made in the Champagne region of northern France. Sparkling wine is made all over the world -- the largest sparkling wine producers are in Spain -- but only sparkling wine made in Champagne is the real deal.Does that mean that sparkling wine made elsewhere is no good? Au contraire, mon amis. Some of the best values in bubblies come from Spain and Italy.Since the holidays are in full swing, here's a brief look at bubblies, how they're made, what's a good value and how they taste.(And how they taste is not always as what writer Aldous Huxley once wrote: Champagne has the taste of an apple peeled with a steel knife. )Sparkling wine is -- well, wine. And wine is simply fermented grape juice. Yeast reacts with the sugar in the grape juice to produce carbon dioxide and alcohol. With sparkling wine there is a second fermentation to produce the bubbles.Bingo: party time.Now, everyone thinks the French invented sparkling wine. The credit often is attributed to a religious man named Dom Perignon. The good friar did experiment for years with blending wines, but he did not invent the process.The fact is, sparkling wines were known for centuries (there is even a biblical mention), and they were usually mistakes. Wines in cold climates (such as Champagne) sometimes would stop fermenting when the weather got too cold, but would start back up once the weather warmed up.French wines often were shipped to England in cask, then bottled, according to Tom Stevenson in Christie's World Encyclopedia of Champagne & Sparkling Wine (Wine Appreciation Guild, 50). The English had developed a way to make French wines fizzy by adding a little sugar to the bottled wine to induce a secondary fermentation. They could do this because English glass was stronger than French glass, and a bottle has to have a lot of strength to contain several atmospheres of pressure created by the fermented wine.But if the English invented sparkling wine, the French certainly perfected it.There are basically three ways to make sparkling wine, but by far the best is the most expensive, time-consuming and labor-intensive. It's called methode champenoise, in which the second fermentation takes place in the bottle, not in a 100,000-gallon stainless-steel tank. All the best sparkling wines are made this way.The real cheapies are made in the big tanks -- and taste like it.Sparkling wines come in various levels of sweetness, and it's wise to pay attention to the labels because some of them can be confusing. For example, if the label says extra dry, the wine actually will be on the sweetish side. Brut is the most widely made style, and it's pretty dry.There are sweet, dessert-style bubblies, too, called demi-sec or doux, but they're not easy to find and don't appeal to most bubbly drinkers.The style of sparkling wine is also determined by what grapes go into it. A blanc de blancs is a sparkling wine made exclusively from chardonnay grapes. A blanc de blancs was definitely on Lord Byron's mind: Champagne with foaming whirls as white as Cleopatra's melted pearls. These bubblies tend to be a bit lighter and more delicate than those made from a blend of chardonnay and pinot noir (which is most bruts), or a blanc de noirs made from pinot noir. And of course, there are rosé sparkling wines, too.While some champagnes are outrageously expensive, you don't have to take out a second mortgage to get a really good bottle of sparkling wine. Some of the best for the money (and remember, Oscar Wilde knew whereof he spoke: Pleasure without champagne is purely artificial ):I love Rotari. The name looks Greek to me, but it's made in Italy. It's about 10.Other good values: From Spain try Cristalino, Aria, Segura Viudas and Paul Cheneau.From Italy: Two sweetish but really terrific bubblies are Asti Spumante and Moscato d'Asti. The latter, especially, is a happy wine.Good bubblies are made in California, too, and the prices generally fall between the inexpensive Spanish cavas and the French nonvintage brut champagnes. Labels to look for: Iron Horse, Chandon, Mumm Cuvée Napa, Schramsberg, Mirabelle, Gloria Ferrer and Roederer Estate.A good value from Washington State is Domaine Ste. Michelle.As for the real champagnes, quality and prices fall in generally three categories. The best value is the least expensive. These are the nonvintage bruts, and they're very consistent from year to year. Ones you've doubtless seen in wine shops or even upscale supermarkets:Bollinger, Veuve Clicquot, Taittinger, Pommery, Gosset, Duval-Leroy (a good value), Billecart-Salmon, Laurent-Perrier, Perrier-Jouët, Roederer.Then there are the vintage champagnes, supposedly produced only in exceptional years. Look for Bollinger, Pol Roger, Roederer, Mumm, Ruinart.And then there are the grande marques, the best of the best, and any one of these will have you asking for a second glass:Möet's Dom Perignon, Roederer Cristal, Veuve Clicquot's La Grande Dame, Pol Roger's Sir Winston Churchill, Krug vintage and Krug Clos des Mesnil, Pommery Cuvée Louise, Bollinger R.D. (my personal favorite), Taittinger's Comtes de Champagne, Laurent-Perrier's Grand Siecle, Nicolas Feuillate's Palme d'Or and Perrier-Jouët's Fleur de Champagne. Grand champagnes all, and expensive. Let your pocketbook be your guide.Now, are you set for a glass of bubbly this holiday season? Yeah, me, too. Oh, and don't forget: A bottle of good sparkling wine is a perfect holiday gift. Dorothy Parker knew that. Three be the things I shall never attain: envy, content -- and sufficient champagne. Michael Lonsford's Wine of the Week appears Fridays in Dining Guide.
