… look what I found at Magpie today!

Boundary Tree bottled beer (yes, beer not wine) from Blackberry Farm in Tennessee!!!  Blackberry Farm is the most heavenly place to get away in the mountains of East Tennessee… everything they do is wonderful, so this beer has to be perfect! (you can buy this to-go at Magpie)

I seem to be the last in town to hear the hubbub about the possibility of cutting down our town Christmas tree…

… I don’t know all the details, but my prediction is it won’t be cut down in the end… forever the optimist ;-)  seriously, I just can’t fathom that happening…

… today for the first time in years, I laid down still in the grass, faced the sky and soaked up the sun…

… it was so relaxing and peaceful… why don’t I ever do this!?   Of course, I was lazy and super tired for the rest of the day, so maybe it’s a good thing I DON’T regularly do this… ;-)

… honored today to be asked by a long-time Hollywood filmmaker to appear in one of his short films…

… of course, I will do it, especially after reading your script and the tears that came as I read it… fun to think you were making the movie “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton when I was just a baby! … so honored to be asked to do this project…

I’ve always wanted to do a European river cruise, and now I get to!  Message me for how to reserve your spot on this trip with our group… it’s $750 off right now and the cruise visits France, Germany, Netherlands & Switzerland! If you’re a foodie and love good wine and food like me… this trip is for us! :-)

Details: The cruise starts in Basel and ends in Amsterdam. We’ll get to see Zurich’s medieval homes, Amsterdam’s amazing museums, Heidelberg (where Mark Twain wrote “A Tramp Abroad”), will check out 40 castles strung along the Rhine, and will sample wines every step of the way, including from France’s Alsace region while in Riquewihr, Freiburg and Strasbourg and the vineyards of Rüdesheim.
