On New Year’s Eve a couple of years ago, Speedy opened a bottle wine — a special kind. Gold flakes floated in the wine. The wine was delicious but the real fun was in watching the 22-karat gold flakes and photographing them. That was the last New Year’s Eve we spent in our old house. Six months later, we moved to this house (if you want to read my stories about home decorating and stuff, click here). Curiously, we haven’t repeated the 22-karat cold sparking wine experience since we moved.
If you’re wondering if it is safe to ingest gold, you can read the facts about edible gold and edible gold leaf.
