[youtube dPRWshWq9E4] Paganini wrote that piece because he felt that all of the music written for violin at the time was boring. Fair enough. Perpetual Motion. Not boring. Arguably the hardest violin piece in the world. But check this: [youtube 34jnYqxNJNU] That’s a cornet.
A little something for the Brother. And it’s funny as hell. To pick up from where we were yesterday, Food Inc., is about how food arrives to us in this country. It talks about how McDonalds and such dictate how chickens are to be grown, how beef is to be grown and how food is […]
Let’s stay in our happy place. Ahhhhh. Wasn’t that nice? I said I might discuss what goes on inside the Wine Dog head. I’ve been thinking about it for about 10 days and I decided that it doesn’t really matter, so here goes. I have had a recurring dream for probably the last 20 years. […]
Time for the Wine Dog to go to her happy place. Apparently my spelling and grammar are better in my happy place. Besides they say as long as the first and last letter are correct the human brain can figure out what you’re talking about. I don’t know what happens when the sentence is “Who […]
You know the downfall of this country is going to have nothing to do with Obama. It’s going to have to do with lack of education, racism and hatred. Did you know that there are more groups dedicated to racism and hatred in this country now than there were 10 years ago. We’ve created a […]
In lieu of a really really angry rant, we’re going with pictures. Lots of other blogs have Wordless Wednesday. I don’t have anything nice to say, so here goes. We will return to our regularly scheduled jackassery tomorrow.

I’m beat. Two weeks of 12 plus hour days and no day off. So today is dog pictures and nonsense. First up, Britain’s got talent. [youtube -0jNC_w1tSw] The Brother sent me this one. Oh yeah, he knows this dog. I don’t. And the Teabaggers show their true colors. And the Borowitz Report. The Daily Show […]
I’ve been ridiculously busy. If I hadn’t woken up at 3am today and decided to get up, you wouldn’t be hearing from me now. Sometimes something comes through that’s too good to resist. I give you, last night’s Jon Stewart Show. I’ve decided to start composting here on the Farm. Because I don’t have enough […]
Have I mentioned my charmed existence? Yeah, I’m pretty lucky. Last weekend Marcy Gordon, travel writer, wineaux and general good gal invited me and some other wine bloggers up to the Wine Sensory Experience in Calistoga. I hadn’t had a day off since January 24th so it seemed like a grand idea. It was also […]
