September 2[edit]

Yahoo hotmail[edit]

I have a yahoo account and let's say I want to add a hotmail user to my contact. When I clicked "add a contact", there will be a blank for me to type the other person's email address. I have 4 options of network. Yahoo! messenger, lcs, lotus sametime, microsoft live. So which network is hotmail belonging to?184.97.201.174 (talk) 16:22, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

I (read well) I think it is Messenger's. Miss Bono [zootalk] 16:35, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
No, Hotmail is Microsoft Live. --Viennese Waltz 08:02, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
Odd. Adding contacts in my Yahoo mail account doesn't ask about network. Only the name details: First Name, Middle Name, & Last Name and the contact information: Email, NickName, MessengerID, & Phone. So long as you fill in at least one of these seven fields, you can store the contact. In other words, do you have to enter a network at all, since it seems you can leave details out?

Is there such a thing as lilac wine ?

Apparently so. Here are some recipes. BbBrock (talk) 20:34, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
I used to work with a woman who was able to make wine out of just about any plant material. She used to bring them into the office for us to sample, but we were too polite to say how grim they really were. Her worst creation was potato wine, which I would have hesitated to clean paintbrushes with. Alansplodge (talk) 22:30, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
There is also Dandelion Wine, which I thought is more well known then lilac wine. Our article is about the Ray Bradbury book by the same title, but it is a real beverage and you can find recipes online. Vespine (talk) 04:56, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
Wikipedia's article is at fruit wines. Rmhermen (talk) 11:45, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
