Awww!! Napa Valley😊 Between the rolling, sundrenched hills to pairing my favorite Cabernet with chocolate, this wine paradise is a breath of fresh air.  A time to recharge my senses.  There is something for everyone in Napa – from the farmers markets, concerts, wine tours and winemaker dinners to just kicking back on an Adirondack

Last month, my girlfriend got a cat.  I want to be as welcoming to this new addition to her family as possible, but there still seems to be a little tension between the cat and I.  Being the human in this human-feline “relationship”, I know I will need to decode all that secret kitty body

Last summer we decided to take a road trip.  Since my wife and I consider ourselves somewhat of wine enthusiasts, our destination was going to be the rolling hills, grape vineyards, and wineries of California’s Central Coast.
