Call out for some advice... (and there are some of you reading this blog that can give it) This is about wine, but is it? Wine isn't always about popping bottles. I often tell one of my best friends, that is a nurse, that she is the one that saves lives - I sell wine. [...]
The day came - my favorite day of the year - FRIENDSGIVING. I plan for this holiday (is it really a holiday?) all year; I create Pinterest boards, pick up odds and ends as I go, stock pile recipes - you can judge, but it brings me ultimate joy to create a moment in time [...]
Women, men, mentors, co-workers and friends - wow, it's been quite a few months, hasn't it. What a bucket of uncertainty. This morning, a very popular performer, that needed to defend his/her self regarding a social media post, stated "If you follow me, you know I support women." This blog came to me in traffic [...]

Did you know that New Jersey has wineries? That's kind of a joke. Yeah, I knew; I just never went. And I didn't go because I am a snob. I felt like I was better than that. In my mind, wineries in Cape May had nothing to teach or offer me. It's Cape May New [...]
Last night, yet again, I couldn't sleep. This isn't a Covid thing, this is a Susan thing. I don't have a problem falling asleep; on the contrary. Once the day is over, once I can sit on a couch with a Nexflix agenda - I'm out. I start to stir at 3 or 4 AM. [...]
