Another Great Meal

Having gained ten pounds this month, I now trying to loose it during November, last night did not help.

It was a great night, the thirty minute drive each way on I435 was worth it.

It really is Another day in Paradise, and Five o' Clock somewhere.

I have really had some fun trying to help other's over the past six months, one of which is sitting down and writing these Blog entries. I have a plastic file with my instructions,I try putting them to use several times every month.

I am looking forward to fniding out who will bid for my wine and appetizer pairing at the Tiny Tim Fantasy 2010.
The gifts and donantions benefit the Lee Ann Britain Infant Development Center, and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. For further details you can contact debbie.kipper@shawneemission.org

Port, styles and flavors.

My first trip at the age of 19 was to the vineyards of Port ugal, which of course included the Upper Douro, the home of the vine yards. The River Douro runs very close to the growing area. Some thirty years ago a hydro electric dam was built that made a difference to irrigation. The so called soil is a schistous rock, and it is true that dynamite is some times use to break up the ground to plant the nursery vines. Most of the grape varieties grown are form less than ten staples, although over eighty varieties are available.

Relaunch of Passport to Wine:

I am so excited to be working with the Latin Bistro, when we get together on Saturday November 6th. at 11:00 in the morning for our first Passport to wine course. The first section is designed to take two weeks.
The last course which took place in England, lasted eight years with the same people attending, can you believe that?

The purpose of the first session is to get an idea of the goals, and needs of the participants!

The cost for each session just $45.00
