Someone told me that the main protagonist and central character of the ABC series Scandal reminded her of me. "You have to watch it," she said. "She's almost exactly like you, except younger, prettier, and really talented."
When I slunk into work the next morning with two unyielding, risqué tattoos in full view, my coworkers at The Day Job™ asked, "Just exactly what were you doing in (insert air quotes here) Wine Country?!?"
This past Sunday I spent several hours touring and tasting at half the wineries in Nevada. Both of them.
As well as saving humans from the dangers of water (something that fish, turtles, frogs, bacteria, paramecia, newts, and alligators mate and crap in every day), wine has been an icon of the most civilized countries for millennia. Vegas Wineaux
Between studying for every test on earth and being in the middle of a major IT/web project at The Day Job™, I have had nothing remotely approaching a social life.
I hope to be able to unveil the new look on August 31, leaving the Labor Day morning for tweaking and then barbecuing later. Of course!
Just about every wine book I have has dated itself by honing in on specific vintages, which, years later, are no longer available, making the recommendations irrelevant. In manufacturing they call that planned obsolescence.
I know wine. I just have to have the pieces of papers (and pins) to prove to others that I do. Master level? Well, maybe. After all, while I'm at it...
That chunky, short-haired person talking with Paul is me back then. Now I have long hair. Still chunky. Whatever.
The Wineaux Guy and I got to visit Paso Robles several times during the year, and those times were very relaxing for both of us. We didn't always get to visit friends while we were there, but love the town and it's a perfect getaway weekend for us. Paso Robles has that old-fashioned small town feel that is balm to a stressed out soul.
