For my birthday, I received a truly unique and clever gift from my brother Al and his wife Kim – a bottle of 7 Deadly Zins wine! I think they saw on my Facebook that I’ve been writing a series on the Seven Deadly Sins for the Chicago Archdiocesan newspaper and thought (rightly) that I would appreciate this gift. It is, of course, a Zinfandel…I’ve yet to taste it…gotta keep that gluttony in check!
