Wagstaff's lumber room #5

From Hesiod's Works and Days:

"Take your fill when the cask is first opened and when it is nearly spent, but midways be sparing: it is poor saving when you come to the lees."

Yes, Hesiod used to ramble just like over his dram of wormwood. I can hear him like it was yesterday. Thank you for a trip down memory lane.
