Want to learn more about wine from the Finger Lakes in NY, and Ravines Wine Cellars? The POD and I taste three wines, and want to tell you all about it....
YOU paint your own picture - in and out of your wine choices. How does that picture shift into a new journey? Let's discuss who we are NOW, and how we navigate a few pricy wines.
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. [...]
If everything remained the same, my life would be a lot easier, right? I wouldn't need to explain myself, stress about the unknown, come up with a plan that may fail, come up with the cover up plan, and re-do all of this next week. So, why can't the same grape taste the same way, [...]

I've been angry lately. I feel as if I am not being heard. I feel like things are passing me by, and I don't have control. It's getting to me. And to be honest, it's all in my head. Nothing has changed but everything has changed. I want answers from something that doesn't even have [...]
