As we enter the warmer, dryer season, I would like to make a request to everyone. Last year we had a lot of fires here. A freaking lot. Here’s a picture of what it looked like on a completely cloudless day in September last year.
Dispicable, right? I still have ash in my home from this. I know I could clean my blinds, but I shouldn’t have to.
I know it’s very American to “blow shit up”, but maybe you can take a step back before you light fireworks after your 4th beer and ask yourself “is this a good idea?”.
It’s probably not.
I know you’re a rebel, and you’re probably going to play with fireworks. And maybe even have a cigarette or two. But do me a favor. Play with fireworks on concrete. And don’t throw your cigarette butts anywhere but a proper receptacle. Out-your-car-window isn’t a proper receptacle.
These are not just one man’s thoughts, these are the thoughts of everyone who enjoys clean air and the beauty of our state. Don’t be “that guy”. No one likes “that guy”.

I bought a CD last week. Like, an unopened, still polywrapped CD. From the 90’s. I wont tell you who it is, because it’s super embarrassing, even for me.

I sat very awkwardly in the tasting room with one other customer, trying very hard to not make small talk with the awkward winetender, as I sat awkwardly getting a flight. One thing would have saved the day.
Wineries are one of my favorite places to be, or so my bank tells me. I love to post up with a glass of wine, good conversation or a book, a warm environment and comfortable chairs, maybe a good playlist or live jazz quartet, and…6 HD TVs with sports games???
I recently saw an article claiming BMW drivers are the “…rudest drivers on the road”. I’ve experienced this first hand (along with Audi and Jeep drivers who get way too little credit for being A-Holes behind the wheel). The good news here is that BMW has begun taking steps to fix their public image.
It’s Summer, so naturally people will end up spending more time outside enjoying the weather. Beaches are packed, people are out enjoying parks and trails, there are outdoor festivals, and restaurant patios are in full use. Any and every excuse to spend time in the sun.

When the weather is nice and I have the free time, there’s not much I enjoy more then drinking a nice glass or two of wine on a patio. This could be at home, at a winery, at a restaurant, at a friends house; as long as the company is good and the place is conducive to calm relaxation, I’m in. Continue reading
For the first time in my life, I’m all in favor of this. I’ve seen too many distracted drivers, selfish drivers, aggressive drivers, and completely oblivious drivers. My blood pressure never gets as high as it is when I’m in my car. Continue reading
