National Wine Day May 25th

National Wine Day, is definitely a holiday worth celebrating. Get behind this holiday, head over to your local wine shop and purchase some wine you love and a bottle of something new, different something you might have read about or been reading about. We all get into a routine of buying the same wine, I like to celebrate National Wine Day by expanding my horizons, treating myself to something a bit more something worth opening on this special holiday. My something new is;
2011 EDICT. Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon, CA – Napa Valley – Napa Valley, An inviting nose of Raspberries and Black Current that continues on the palate. Located in Coombsville, the Collinetta vineyard offers an elegant texture with lots of dense ripe red fruits. The acidity reinforces and balances the structure which entails a mouth watering finish that lingers in the end of the mouth long after the wine is gone. Fine hints of coconut and vanilla discretely reveal the 100% French oak aging. Together, powerful dense fruit, bight forward acidity and balanced oak integration birth a cohesive ensemble showing off Coombsville AVA at its finest – making a wine that will grow effortlessly for years to come.

More ideas on how to celebrate National Wine Day, it’s a great time to purchase some new glasses, a wine refrigerator or some accessories.

Wine Glasses and Stemware, head over to Crate&Barrel or shop online, I have always been a fan of their selection. Also you can purchase one glass, yes you will break a glass and can order one more and not have to purchase a whole new set.

Wine Refrigerator, Wine Cooler Direct has both great products and great prices, visit their site to look at the top sellers.

Wine Accessories, I always head over to FRONTGATE, they have wine accessories that are well built, fun and functional.

Wine Magazine, I am a fan of continued education, if nothing else get a subscription to Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator or Food & Wine Magazine.

Note: Do not get National Wine Day (May 25th) confused with National Drink Wine Day (February 18th). National Wine Day is all about drinking and enjoying wine, National Drink Wine Day is about educating people on the health benefits of drinking wine. Things like moderate drinkers have lower risks for liver disease, type two diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and some cancers. Wine has also been known to reduce “bad” cholesterol, or LDL, and increase “good” cholesterol, known as HDL, a glass of wine has just 100 calories, and its fat-free and cholesterol free…

Peace on Earth

Top Christmas Gifts

2014 Best Gift the one everyone truly wants is, World Peace. Merry Christmas, Christmas time is different for everyone around the world. People have different beliefs, traditions, weather… Traveling around this time of year I realize that everyone want’s the same thing, quality time with the people around them. Once all the stress of getting somewhere, or finding the perfect gift, cooking, cleaning… is done and you have a second to sit down and look around you notice that relationships with people near and far is what really brings the most joy out of everyone.

This year as you attend all the traditional events that happen each year, try to be in the moment and not thinking about what did or did not get done. Church, work, kids school, friends stopping by… it is time to give everyone an extra minute and realize that the people around you make the holiday special.

It is a time to enjoy everything life has to offer, everyone loves to cook around the holidays so enjoy what others have spent time and money preparing. Time and effort were spent on decorations and lights, take time to drive through the neighborhood and take it all in.

Treat everyone how you would like to be treated, it is a time of year where people tend to be a bit nicer to strangers. Peace on earth will only happen if we continue this all year long. If we look at issues that come up and try to work together to come up with solutions. We all need to give each other more complements, gifts are nice yet telling someone how great they look, what a great job their doing or letting them know that you value their friendship goes a long way.

Shop, eat, drink, party… and keep the conversations, actions positive as we all want world peace and staying positive and being good to everyone around you is a great start.

Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday Season and Peace on Earth and Goodwill toward Men!

4th Of July Freedom

My favorite holiday is the 4th Of July. Freedom to do what ever you want, it’s a federal holiday so most people don’t have to work! It’s a nice long day, I wake up early just out of habit, eat a good breakfast and head out side and put up the flag. It’s a super positive day more than likely because everyone is very active. I am one who has to be on the water every 4th, the beach, a lake or by the pool as long as there is water. For lunch/dinner the food is usually cooked outdoors, some sort of BBQ, something from the garden and always more watermelon than you can eat. After a long day as the sun starts to go down everyone is looking nice and tan. And here is why I love this holiday, as you may want to wind down, the day is only getting ramped up! As you head back outside to see the fireworks you get your second wind, the night is young and the party is about to get started!

Remember the significance of the 4th of July. It’s Independence Day, the adoption of the Declaration of Independence (July 4th, 1776), declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain, now known as the United Kingdom. It is our country’s birthday so time to celebrate and enjoy the freedom to live the way we want. Especially today make sure you take advantage of your freedom and do at least one thing just for you!

Happy 4th Of July!!!

Sticky Bumps Review

I use Sticky Bumps Surf Wax because I like the smell. This is not a surf wax review I just wanted to write in why I use Sticky Bumps, it works well, goes on easy, and it smells really good. All winter I have been using Sticky Bumps Cool Surf Wax and loving it.
Some Facts about Sticky Bumps, Cool Surfboard Wax is for use in water 58º- 68º F (14º-19ºC). Sticky Bumps Surf Wax is an all-natural non-toxic wax. Eco Friendly, Sticky Bumps was the first surf wax to stop using paraffin-based waxes. Sticky Bumps is long lasting and easy to apply formula. Rub it on nose to tail, rail to rail. The wax weight is over 85 grams. Sticky Bumps surf wax has been around since 1972.
I personally over wax my boards, so I use a lot of wax, and it lasts and sticks good. It is also a surf wax that lasts a while you don’t have to constantly reapply, I use the same wax, as it just stays put, no need to mess with it. Long lasting and easy to apply what more could you want.

Price is $2.00 – $3.00, worth every cent/sent!

American Flag Made In The USA, Is your Flag American?

Happy Memorial Day! A happy day it is, no work, no school, yet many think of this day as the first day of summer (June 21, 2014). As we all know it is not nor is it, Flag Day (June 14th), Veterans Day (November 11th) or a day to spend shopping going from one sale to the next. Memorial Day honors military personnel who died while in service. These men and women are true heroes; they voluntarily sign up to serve in a military where they know from one day to the next they could loose their life. Memorial Day, should be a happy day, most people what to be remembered in a happy way, and want to make others lives happy as they are remembered.

Looking around today one-thing stands out, The American Flag. It could be the “first day of summer” feeling as winter is in the past and it’s time to put up the flag. Or the fact that the American flag plays a big role in Memorial Day, when it represents everything that soldiers have fought for. You will notice today the flag is at half-staff until noon, after that it is raised to full staff. American flags are placed on all the graves at military cemeteries, and 3 p.m. is the traditional time to visit cemeteries. What a great symbol that stands for so many things to so many people. What a great symbol of quality when an American Flag is crisp, clean, well taken care and well made in the USA. The American Flag that you put up on this day or any other day is a reflection of you, people notice details and a flag that is well made in the USA says a lot. Some flags that won’t make it through the day, poor quality materials and stitching make it vulnerable to strong wind and can fade with the sun. I noticed my flag is made of sail material, what could withstand more than the material sailboats trust in the middle of the ocean. The label said Annin, what I soon found out was this company has been in business since 1847, it was started by Alexander Annin who began making US flags for the merchant ships in his sail-making shop on the New York waterfront in the 1820’s. The American flag was less than fifty years old when Alexander Annin began making US flags. It was an Annin flag that flew at the inauguration of President Zachary Taylor, starting an inaugural tradition that has continued through the inauguration of President Barack Obama. Annin supplied all the US flags for the Union troops during the American Civil War. An Annin flag draped the coffin of President Abraham Lincoln on its journey from Washington D.C. to Springfield, Illinois. The U.S. Marines raised an Annin flag atop Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima in 1945. NASA selected an Annin flag to participate in Apollo 11’s mission to the moon in 1969.

There are a lot of American Flags that look good, are well made in other countries or are less expensive. The point is pride, the US flag should be made in the USA with materials that are domestic in origin and that all processes in every step of its manufacture are completed in USA facilities with USA labor.   When you purchase an American flag make sure it is from Annin or another US manufacture that is “Certified Made in the USA”.

Happy Memorial Day, Is Your American Flag Made In The USA?
