Gimme a bottle of anything

      1 Comment on Gimme a bottle of anything

It’s common knowledge that I love wine.  People always ask me if I prefer red or white?  Yes. I like both equally.  This weekend some friends are hosting their annual holiday wine tasting party.  Everyone brings a bottle of wine and blind tasting ensues.  Everyone picks their favorite and a winner is chosen.

A Year in the Life of Me

      No Comments on A Year in the Life of Me

This time last year things began to change for me…all for the better. At times it didn’t feel like it. First I got a new job. That was awesome. I still love it, but it will always just be a job.

It’s because the venue is OUTSIDE. That’s right. It’s going to be held at a ranch. A RANCH! So, not only… Read more »

On Monday, December 17, 2007, I did something that would greatly affect my life.  Or is that effect my life?  Grammar mind fart aside, that’s the day I signed up for Twitter.  Back then, it was just another thing I did because I was intrigued and curious.  I saw it mentioned in an email from  It would take me… Read more »

A Weekend Getaway in Town

      2 Comments on A Weekend Getaway in Town

Twice this year, I’ve stayed at a hotel in Sacramento over a weekend.  Since I live here, it’s a little random.  The thing is, it was pretty awesome. What you do first is get on Priceline.  I know it’s scary committing to something without first knowing what you’re getting into, but you can manipulate the site just a little bit…. Read more »
