Saturday Reminders–4/2/16

I am sitting on my couch a bit tired but also still on California time–Sebastian and I landed a few hours ago in Philadelphia after a trek first across the Bay Area and then across the country on a flight from SFO to PHL that included a good hour in the sky over Philly as we waited for the thunderstorms to dissipate.

We came home to a completely different abode: the stagers had been here while we were away, getting our house ready to be put on the market. I am under strict orders to keep the house as it currently is (minus the paint fumes, I assume).

We will see how that goes.

It was not until I walked in the door that I realized that we were really moving to Texas.

So I did what any other rational person would do. I grabbed a bottle of wine.

And then another.

As I am sitting here watching the last episodes of Mad Men (I am a little behind the times and they finally became available on Netflix), I thought I would pass along a few reminders:


  1. The new theme for the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge is “Pleasure” and you can find all the details HERE.Pleasure
  2. Perhaps my last Sip and Spin ever will be on April 15th at 7:00. So if you are going to be in Philadelphia and would like to attend my Spinning class followed by a wine tasting (I am thinking Loire Valley wines), better call Lifesport at (215) 236-0763 and reserve a spot!spinning
  3. One last thing. Yesterday, I posted about a pending legal issue I might have. Well, April Fools Day! A new chapter of Ohmygod will be published Monday.

Have a great Saturday folks!


About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

    One consolation in moving is you can buy wine at a Houston grocery store. Happy moving! 😉
