Saturday Reminders—9/30/17

I should be packing for my trip tomorrow, but instead, here I sit, reading about the respective messes that are college basketball, the federal government, and Fixer Upper (well, I am only really reading about two of those three—one can only handle so much depression on a beautiful Saturday morning). I also hope to get out on a ride before basketball practice at noon (I took an assistant coach job at my son’s school) and yet another flag football game for Sebastian (they shocked all the parents last week by actually winning a game).

Before I go, here are a couple of reminders for you:

  • It seems as though every week there is a new disaster and it is no doubt overwhelming to many. Hurricane Harvey seems like a decade ago, but there are still people struggling to recover. Thus, I have set up a donation page with Texas Children’s Hospital to help the families with extremely sick children whose homes have been severely damaged by the storm. 100% of the donations go directly to the families (full disclosure: my wife is the Director of the Palliative Care team at the hospital). LINK.
  • The latest Monthly Wine Writing Challenge has been extended for one week, which means the deadline is Monday (10/2). All of the information can be found HERE.

Have a Safe Saturday!

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.
