I want to research the Texas Hill Country wine and share with you my analysis. I have a list of over 50 wineries here in the Hill Country of central Texas that I plan to explore and do some wine tasting. Grapes that grow well and wine that is made in this climate include the Merlot grape, the Blanc du Bois, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Cynthiana, Gewurztraminer, and Lenoir.
There's no better place to be a high school football fan than in South Texas!!!! They pulled me in quite easily. Artificial turf, video screen and an awesome team. I love watching kids that know what they're doing and may have a future. Almost better than a pro game. It's the perfect night for an outdoor game around 70 degrees. Forty-five minutes to kick off... We're 9-0!!! Playoffs here we come.
On my way to watch a college football team that I am not a fan of...yet. A&M plays LSU today, now there's a game I'd like to see. But, it'll be good to support the local boys. The Roadrunners. That was the mascot of my grade school. I still have a Rogers Roadrunners sweatshirt stuffed into my cedar chest. Ahhh good old times...
Now have you heard of Austin Rehkow? No, we'll you soon will. He is a high school football player who just booted a 67 yard field goal to put the game in overtime. That is 4 yards longer than the recent NFL record by David Akers of the San Francisco 49ers. His team went on to win that game, and you can bet college scouts will be waiting!

Ok, I'm late to post about this considering there was a blog up about the binders while it was still happening. The minute Romney said he had a binder full of women we knew it was going to be exploited. I myself have had many laughs because of it. I personally don't see anything wrong with using a binder. I have a binder of things I like, designs I might use, crafts I want to do and recipes. Besides cutting each other off and calling their rival a liar, not much new was said. I was surprised at the president's claim that they didn't know that our diplomat in Libya needed more protection? If our government is not aware of what is going on over then we are in a sorry state. My favorite twitter feed during the campaign was after a comparison to George W. Bush, a satirical statement said Bush was going to come crashing through the ceiling to defend himself! - like a true super hero -

When it comes to school projects I just can't help myself, I love to help my daughter. If she only let's me watch I let her bounce ideas off me and I often throw in my own ideas to make her think. Her most recent school project was a catapult she built with a partner and they worked hard on it. I also worked on my own version of the project in miniature format. We then combined my plan with their supplies and basic structure. It turned out so well and I am proud of both of them. In my head I believe that's what parents are for. Teachers are to teach and parents are to help. They will be decorating the finished project this weekend before they turn it in next week. I will post a video, it is killer!! I miss my dad's wood shop, this would have been built in half the time with a power saw... : (
Recent Wired magazine talks about the new replicator 3-D printer. I could have used that to design a catapult on the computer and sent the final product to a desktop printer. Ima…
Ok, its Monday, and a school night so no talk of wine. Its been a tough day in the red light district so I will digress. Let me go to my twitter feed and pick out a subject.
Wow, this is interesting and sounds similar to an episode of Grays Anatomy I've seen. The world's first live-tweeted and live-instagrammed hearing restoration surgery will take place tomorrow, 10/22. The woman, Eleanor Day, 79, doesn't even have a twitter account, but her cochlear implant surgery was live this morning. The hospitals communications department is making this possible to raise awareness for hearing loss and how the surgery can repair this. It is happening at 7 a.m. and after only an hour to 2 hours it'll be over and Eleanor Day will be able to hear again after 5 years in silence. Good luck and happy training for those of you watching.

Ok, I'm on a roll, my second blog... tonight I want to talk about a good wine. Deep Purple, not the 70's heavy metal band... you know the tune that everyone can mimic. This is the Lodi Zinfandel 2009 from California. I love the psychedelic label and honestly the name made me buy it the first time a few years ago. Lodi in Polish means ice cream, and I love ice cream almost as much as I love wine.
This is what wine.com has to say about it ... "Scents of blackberry, black cherry, and plum with a touch
of black pepper and clove. Jammy fruit from entry through
mid-palate, finishing with wild berries and a dusting of cocoa."
and they say it goes with everything...

Zinfandelicious! wow, its so good it has its own word. I tried it and it has become a favorite of mine in my price range, around $10. I highly recommend this wine…
