One Last Time

Air Canada is really cutting corners now . . .

Tomorrow I'm off to York Pennsylvania to do Mr. Steve's Limited Edition event. It's my last trip of the year, so I'm pretty excited about it, but I'm equally excited to be working with Mr. Steve again. He puts on a great event, and I understand it's going to be 150+ people this time! This is my third time giving the talk to his customers, and they've been excellent crowds the other two times.

It'll be a quick turn-around for me, back home in a couple of days to start my job again. Between almost constant travel, doing Limited Edition events and attending Gamay Nouveau parties, answering the most urgent of my emails and working on side projects like the new Limited Edition instruction sets, all of my day job has simply piled up since the beginning of October. Now it's time to do F12 planning, write up a wrap-up of LE and Gamay Nouveau activity, and tackle the unfortunate and by-now tottering pile of stuff that needs my urgent attention. I owe Winemaker magazine a set of PowerPoint slides for the conference coming up (I'm doing a couple of seminares and every year I take too long and my slides don't get into the conference package, this time I swear it's going to be different!) more

Word From the Road

Big crowd, but I was feeling in the pink

A quick word from the road: it's been a very busy couple of weeks, traveling between Manitoba, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. It's Thursday night in Frederickton, and I'm on my ninth tasting in two weeks, did four Gamay Nouveau parties and have one more Friday night, so I've been hopping. Next week it's off to Philadelphia and region for more Limited Edition talks.

If you're on Facebook, you can come find my page and have a look at some of the pictures I posted on all of the events I've been attending, and if you look up the Gamay Nouveau Party Page you can see many fine shenanigans there. more

Caffeindish Capers

That's the culprit, officer: I'd recognise him anywhere

I have a confession to make.

I can tend towards excessive, if not completely compulsive behaviour. When I decide I enjoy something, I tend to enjoy the ever-lovin' bits out of it. All of my hobbies get out of control (viz, winemaking used to be my hobby, and look at me now)  and even small pleasures seem to expand on me, like my rather broad whisky collection, my education as a cook, or my previous obsession with powerlifting.

Most of those are harmless (for a given value of 'harmless'), but it's a good thing to recognise one's weaknesses, and for me it has long been coffee. more

Chicago, the Twins and Limited Edition on the Road

Man, these travel cutbacks are killin' me!

Note: This blog entry, like many others, is really, really late. It's that time of year when it gets difficult to find an internet connectiona and a couple of hours to format photos and upload everything, not to mention trying to remember just where I've been and who I've been talking to! I'll try to be more caught up in future, because there's so much going on that I want to talk about. Keep watching this space! more
