I have a similar job to Professor Hewett. I sometimes buy wine for large social functions, but unlike her, I have zero confidence in my ability to choose a good wine.
I wonder, maybe I should try some of these recommendations?

I just saw a great episode of Battlestar Galactica a week ago. It's entitled "Flight of the Phoenix" which refers to a famous old movie about a wrecked, stranded crew who rebuild their airplane.
Like the movie, the Battlestar Galactica episode is a metaphor about a man whose life is wrecked and how he tries to find hope by constructing a fighter from the ground up. Not easy rebuilding your life from scratch! Nothing new about this story, but the acting is moving and believable. I wish real life were this easy.
Now for the lighter side of life, check out this link to Boston's messiest office. MIT physicist Alan Guth was nominated for an office "make-over" last spring. Read more for the before, during, and after cleanup pictures. Guth is famous for his contributions to cosmology. They are said to be important enough, that if verified, he would probably win a Nobel Prize.
