Game Of Thrones 2016 Central Coast Chardonnay Review

10/10 – Fruit forward balanced wine with a hint of oak, great buy!

Tasting Notes
Enticing aromas of stone fruit and white blossoms lead to a rich, creamy palate of peaches, apricots, tangerine, Meyer lemon, baking spices and honey, balanced by mouth-watering acidity. A touch of oak on the lingering finish.

Lock for your Surfboard or Stand Up Paddle Board it’s called Dockslocks Review

Locks keep honest people honest. I keep my stand up paddleboard (SUP) on my sailboat, yet I was always worried that one day it would get stolen. I keep my surfboard in my back yard and every so often usually on an epic day, a “friend” will borrow it for the day. Not any more the company DocksLocks has come out with the most innovative and practical way to lock up your board. It is kind of like a bike lock for your board, providing similar security benefits and it just takes a minute.

DocksLocks security system is a lock for your board. It secures your surfboard/SUP/wakeboard, deterring theft and freeing your mind. Lock your board to your boat, roof rack, surf rack, dock post or lock it to a bike rack while you go for a bite to eat.

The complete system is $49.95; I purchased mine from Action Watersports in Marina del Rey (www.actionwatersports.com). You can buy the complete surfboard and SUP lock system, it’s a small mesh dive bag inside is 1- 10ft stainless steel coated DXLX cable with a resettable combination, 1- DXLX JAW, 1- DXLX cleat for use in a single fin box (only needed if your surfboard or SUP does not have a leash plug) and a cool sticker DocksLocks Surfboard Security Systems (put it on your board to deter burglars, it’s like the ADT signs outside houses, it works).

Oprah Winfrey Chai Tea Review

Teavana Oprah Chai Tea or as they call it at Starbucks “Oprah Chai”, it is a hit and sales wise- people will by anything that Oprah puts her name on. Those were the selling points I was told at Starbucks so I decided to give it a try. It was served hot yet I recommend when you try it for the first time to try it iced, unless you make it at home then I recommend hot (you can customize it to your liking).

Howard Schultz is a marketing genius, I do see many more stars signature menu items in the near future within Starbucks Corporation. This is real not just an endorsement, Oprah Winfrey not only blends and drinks chai tea daily she helped in the blending of Oprah Chai. Oprah Winfrey said, “My daily tea ritual is a vital part of my morning. Savory and spicy chai, with its deep flavor, has long been a favorite of mine.”

Teaming up with Starbucks and Teavana all proceeds of the signature Teavana Oprah Chai Tea will go to charities that help youth education. Charities like Pathways to College www.pathwaystocollege.info US Dream Academy www.usdreamacademy.org Girls Inc. www.girlsinc.org National CARES Mentoring Movement www.caresmentoring.org and Opera Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation www.owla.co.za if you take a look at the websites you can see just how much is getting accomplished. Oprah Chai has also lead to Steep Your Soul www.oprah.com/app/steep-your-soul.html a must see very powerful, inspiring videos with great guests.

Tasting Oprah’s Chai for the first time you should imagine that you are sitting in a coffee/tea shop in India. I would say close your eyes and don’t think of anything be Zen, opening your mind to a new positive experience. It will be bold something Starbucks is known for in the way they make there most popular coffee, Pike Place Roast. You will taste hints from the base/flavor profile black pepper, chicory, cardamom, clove, ginger and South African red rooibos. It truly is the perfect blend, a bit more flavor coming from the black pepper and ginger, not too gingery yet brings out a nice spice aftertaste. When you make Oprah Chai at home the pleasant spice will fill the room a really enjoyable aroma.

Back to my usual black coffee order at Starbucks, maybe Oprah Chai is that much needed change they say “variety is the spice of life” (life is more interesting when it changes often and you have many different experience).

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?

West Coast Cigar & Spirits Tasting Newport Beach, California

What do Belly Dancers have to do with Cigars?

“Cigar and Spirits” you can say one or the other and it’s an event I would like to be at, both together it’s a guaranteed success. The 4th Annual West Coast Cigar & Spirits Tasting, The Ultimate Lifestyle Event was held at the Newport Beach Hyatt presented by Cigar & Spirits Magazine. Cigars were presented as you entered in an outdoor tented area with live music, when you went inside there were Spirits, Food and more entertainment.

The advertising said, “Come and sample some of the world’s greatest spirits and cigars and to take home hundreds of dollars worth of premium cigar samples”. Tickets were $120, yet to sample the world’s greatest spirits and take home… is a deal. Paid events tend to attract true connoisseurs this one had, great camaraderie, from consumers and suppliers- you knew everyone wanted to be there. You were given a postcard when you arrived and as you visited with each of the cigar companies they would punch their logo (15 cigar logos on the card), and give you a cigar or two or three, a cutter, matches… The system is smart and organized, as juggling tasting spirits, food, entertainment, and cigars at the same time needs. Garo Cigars, Gurkha Cigars, Diamond Crown Cigars, Falto Cigars, Psyko Seven Cigars, Drew Estate, Rocky Patel… and more cigar companies, then you had Hangar 24 Craft Beer, Cognac, Moonshine, Bourbon, Nolet’s Gin, Tatratea, BuzzBar (alcohol-infused ice cream for adults), Tequila Uno, Abreojos Tequila, Comisario Tequila (shown in photo) and soo much more to eat and drink.

The following day I went through, the bag that was given to me when I arrived and which I used to put things in as they were given to me. I emptied it out (shown in photo) as I went through it, I remembered the passion and generosity of each company that participated in the event. This event gets better and better every year, I am sure the majority of the people who attended this year will be back next year as it once again exceeded expectations. What do belly dancers have to do with Cigars? There both smoking hot.
