    Gentlemen, Gentlemen,
    All this talk of tea and wine for use as artificial horizons. Tsk. Tsk. Tea
    and wine are for drinking (especially red wine -- I recommend a Tasmanian
    Cabernet Sauvingon called "Morilla Estates"; the very best).  You want a
    good artificial horizon, I would go for the dark glass ones. Sure, you have
    to level them but that takes about 30 seconds at the most; and best of all,
    you can't spill them and you don't have to boil them to make them work

    > Bruce - Your question about the possible substitution of red wine brought
    to mind the habit of 19th century English watercolourists working in nature
    in the winter, taking a flask of gin to mix with the rinse-water, assuring
    that the water did not freeze.

    full-bodied, and not too dry.
