Happy Holidays

What an utterly amazing holiday this year! Ginny Tonic (aka Rachel) often jokes that I can get pretty “Hallmark-y” when it comes to talking about life and the people I care about. With that in mind, I’ll admit that this post is heading down that road with no brakes, no guard rails and blinkers warning...

Backwards Writing

I’m the king of tossing out plans and then working out how to get to the end of those plans well after the announcement was made. It’s a fun way I’ve challenged myself again and again over the years. I’ve done it on a large-scale and a small-scale much to the delight and sometimes...

Eight Years Waiting

A lone bottle of pomegranate zinfandel may seem like a strange wine to hold for eight years, but that’s what happened with this one.

When I first saw the poster I thought it was another one of those beer runs that keep popping up all over but it is actually the homebrew competition that is put on by the Bloatarian Brewing League....
