streaming wine country odyssey thoughts

so last night i stumbled across a blog about a dude who is hiking through california wine country. very cool.

melinda_doolittlethen this morning, i was thinking about melinda doolittle. whatever happened to that fresh-faced turtlehead who can really wail from american idol? seriously, she is awesome, even though she has no neck. she sounds just like gladys knight to me. i totally wanted her to win, and she didn’t even make it to the finals because of that technoturd, blake lewis. i wasn’t one of those stringy-haired, concert-tee-wearing, slouchy-skinny, classic rock-metal chicks back in the day, but even i cringed when he did his version of “livin’ on a prayer.” he has interesting musical stylings, but they have nothing to do with singing.

anyway, i digress.

cabernet_grape_pieso i’m thinking about melinda and then gladys comes on the radio and it’s “i heard it through the grapevine.” and that made me think of that blog i just mentioned, and that place that sells those cabernet grape pies that i saw on that food network tv show called road tasted with paula deen’s sons. i have heard tell that she really works those boys hard. they look like they can manage, though.

i’m doing it again.

    Hey, thanks for the tip o’ the hat, scholar. Your readers may be interested to know that I’ve spent years hiking these California trails and tasting ever-better California wines. You get to experience both on my guided winehiking tours! Imagine: incredible, scenic trails and top-notch wines, too, along with gourmet food and great camaraderie.

    It’s a healthy pursuit, and I love sharing the best of the California wine country experience with wine and nature lovers from all walks of life.
