As my friend Ken told me today, it’s been a while. So I thought I’d pop in and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and share some pictures and news.
Titanic Halloween Party
On Haloween I was honored to attend a very cool themed party at Jordan Winery, and yesterday Sarah Belk King at Wine Review Online published a nice recap of the event.
John outdid himself this year, and Chef Todd’s food was, as always, delicious. To the right is a pic of my lovely wife Candace enjoying herself at the party. I’ll spare you the pics of me in an old style tux with tails and white gloves, but rest assured they exist somewhere, just waiting to be used as blackmail material.
Did you know you can cultivate your own European black truffles? I didn’t, until recently. Now I’m hard at work implementing a plan to plant a small grove at the vineyard. It will take 5-8 years (depending on the cultivar) to show fruit, but the rewards are more than worth it. And for as low as 22 bucks a tree, why not give it a shot for yourself if you’ve got some room in the yard?
Tow It Outside the Environment
In honor of the recent oil spill in San Francisco bay and due to the dearth of good political comedy since Colbert went off the air, I leave you with the following clip from 1991.
The solution to environmental disaster: tow it outside the environment. Brilliant.
