I don’t know wine, but I do know what tastes good. My family owns an Italian restaurant and I have been introduced to the “good stuff”. I’ve sampled numerous varieties over the last fifteen years and I’ve narrowed down my favorite grapes to pinot noir and pinot grigio. My oldest son is the wine aficionado… Continue reading Carpe Vinum!
I’m not decorating for Halloween this year. My bathrooms are being remodeled and I will have a claustrophobic meltdown if I get out the Halloween decor.

Four years later we were seasoned revelers and rarely missed a Mardi Gras. We had some good times in N’awlins! Day parades were an all day affair. Dad would make sandwiches… Continue reading Laissez les Bon Temps Roulez!
