A small house once at the center of a Supreme Court decision on government seizure of private property has found a safe haven. The pink clapboard house that stood in the way of New London's efforts to build a riverfront project and sparked a property rights movement was disassembled, then relocated close to downtown. New owner Avner Gregory dedicated his house before about 200 people. "This was somebody's house and they were asked to leave," he said. "This is a house that represents a home to the everyday people of America."

The city of Boston couldn't accumulate enough land to build the gleaming new $800-million convention center it wanted on the south side of town. So the city government used its powers of eminent domain to snatch about 20 properties from private owners to provide space for the center, justifying the seizure on the grounds that the new center would boost the local economy. Today, the recently opened Boston center sits idle much of the time.

If you're intent on winning over your rose-phobic friends, better make it the best: a Bandol from Domaine Tempier. Chez Panisse in Berkeley has been pouring the Bandol rose by the glass for practically forever, with good reason. Tempier rose is tremendously food friendly. The color is a lovely coppery rose. It's scented with rose petals and wild strawberries, and yet when you take a sip, it's bone dry and perfectly gorgeous.

For fans of the Alsace estate Zind Humbrecht's grand cru Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer, it seems like a dream: a trio of wines from the 2004 vintage for under $20. Because of the abundant crop that year, Olivier Humbrecht produced the equivalent of village wine with grapes from some of his grand cru vineyards. The Riesling, which was made mostly with grapes from the famed Herrenweg site, has a delicate floral perfume. It's crisp and minerally, with a beautiful balance and grace.
