21st Jan 2012...Wine bet

The 2012 wine bet ( macro moths only ) took an early knock as Captain Trappings notched a superb Spring Usher on the 18th.
This would be a very welcome rarity in my urban garden.
Last night saw my 7th Dark Chestnut for january and is my sole macro to date.
Back to the wine bet.....
I have lost this bet for the past two years since its inception in 2010 but last year was very close (macro total) and in 2010 I missed out on late March and most of April due to holidays, which included an unplanned extra week due to Icelandic volcanic ash.
