Well, when you have both, you might look forward especially to the wine. Age, et ligna et vinum habens, vinum maxumÃ¨ exspectes.timeodanaos wrote:"wine is more important than fire"
I don't quite understand what you mean, Timeodanaos. I thought you were drawing attention to the implicit tongue-in-cheek exhortation "be generous in piling up the logs and be more giving with serving up the wine". That works for me, as does mulled wine which makes even the worst wine very nicely drinkable (with honey or sugar, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon)! You wouldn't mull the good wine, of course.timeodanaos wrote:large in the first part modifies the participle reponens, while benignius modifies the imperative deprome - isn't tihs quite odd if the two are supposed to correspond, or am I thinking too grammatically?
