I am beyond the diaper-and-drool stage, and now have three teenagers (18, 17, and 13). Is it any wonder I've discovered wine?

Lake Michigan Shore Wine Festival, June 20

Posted on June 26, 2009 at 4:22pm 0 Comments

It's hard to know just what to expect from a "Lake Michigan Shore Wine Festival." One of the ladies on our tour bus summed it up by saying, "...accent on Fest." I imagined the images below, only graced also with colorful tents on the beach sheltering tables and chairs, the tablecloths lifting and wafting in the soft lake breeze. I imagined baskets of wine plunked in the sand in shady nooks, waiting to join their fellows sitting opened and chilling in big silver ice buckets. And I imagined happy… Continue

Is wine the oldest drink?

Posted on April 11, 2009 at 10:25pm 0 Comments

We could think of it this way: the four basic flavor components in wine are sweet, acid, bitter, and tannin. We enjoy these flavors in drinks individually all the time. For sweet, think fruit juice; for acid, think lemonade; for bitter, think very dark cocoa or dark beer; and for tannin, remember your last cup of black tea. Add fizz and you have carbonated soda.

Wine combines all these flavors, including fizz occasionally – sounds disgusting, but isn’t! – in subtle, balanced doses,… Continue

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.

Well thank you!
They say red hair is getting more rare. It's getting more common in my son and I are the only ones I know. We found others naturally but they are distant. I used to have red hair until he was born...those late nights took its toll:)

I remember a Trader Joes off the highway just north of Chicago (going toward Milwaukee) but we would see it only after passing the exit. Waukeegan perhaps? I think it was a little closer in than that.

Seems to me we could only see it in the winterish months when the leaves were off the trees. Had to return a corked bottle once, very easy return policy.

Give it a shot when you're in the area some time.

HAHAHA!! Your comment cracked me up. I got discouraged when we switched from old format to new blog format and changed counters...didn't realize we were counting each page hit as a unique visitor...yeah, BIG hit to the visitor count. But, it's still building and feeling encouraged to see people coming back. I just started taking it more public and promoting it. I'll wish us both lots of luck on that.

I've been looking for a good site-visitor map and caught your blip about feedjit. THANKS for that! I like it a lot and was pretty ticked off with my last two attempts to use one.

Good morning Nancy!
The day I screamed out for a margarita was just 'one of those days'. Geez! (I'm crossing my fingers that today is better.
My oldest is on the Autism spectrum and some days the rollercoaster goes off the tracks. You just have to hold on tight and look to the sky for hope.
So here we are. Another beautiful morning, and trying for the best.
And hey, about Sisters, OR. Yup, there are the 3 sisters mountains Faith, Hope and Charity. But I need to look into The Husband. (Google here I come!)
It's quite possible that Crater Lake was snowed in during a past August. Mother Natures wild like that.
However last July my husband had 2nd degree burns on his face from our afternoon visit! (Medication and lack of sunscreen can do that, the silly boy.)
Here's hoping that, for tonight, a nice glass of wine will suffice.
