Italians 'turn water into wine'

Post by deja vu » Fri Oct 10, 2008 9:00 pm

Wine started flowing through taps in dozens of homes during an Italian grape festival in Marino,
south of Rome.

At the heart of the town's famous Sagra dell'Uva, or Grape Festival, is the moment when sparkling
white wine flows from the fountains in the main square.

But this year locals and tourists had to make do with water, as bad plumbing meant the wine supply
was switched by mistake to local homes.

Once in a life time chance.

Too bad it only lasted for 3 minutes. Given a bit longer perhaps some could have found a jug or 2
to store it in.

That is a nice treat, too bad they dont do that more often. Forget the fountain, send it right to their
homes for a few hours, and let them stock pile until next year.

The universe is big It's vast and complicated and ridiculous and sometimes, very rarely
impossible things just happen and we call them miracles
