Sister Creek Winery in the Texas Hill Country

Sisterdale is a small village in the hills, about an hour north of San Antonio. Once upon a time it took nearly two hours to get there; the roads were narrow and winding. Now the Interstate gets you most of the way there, and a ten-minute drive off the main highway puts you […]

A Short Wine Tour Today!

We have a short break from School this week; only two days, but boy do we need it! Not to mention it’s Texas Wine Month and I haven’t had a chance yet to go on tour. Bummer.

Never fear, though; the beauteous Paula Jo has come to our rescue! She’s done the research and made […]

Friday Follies: Making a Clean Breast of a Drinking Problem

It’s amazing how the Internet can distract you these days. With my wife’s birthday only a couple weeks away, I began to search for the ideal gift. Before you know it, I’m looking at bar & wine tools. And what comes up on the first page of such a search? A Wine Rack, of […]

The post-feast roistering lasted into the wee hours. Beer and wine in appropriate quantities actually help me stay up late. Grad school training, I suppose. (Does this mean I’ve still got it?)

Getting a few nice presents helps too, like Flight Simulator X (with Acceleration Expansion Pack) and a Saitek ST290 Pro Joystick. I stayed up […]

The Grand Christmas Feast at the Ranch

This post is coming up Very Late. We stayed up until the wee hours of the morning, opening gifts and playing games, watching movies and more. It was so late when we got started with the Clan’s traditional Stocking Orgy Presents Opening that breakfast had to be eaten in shifts, with some revelers asleep before […]

Tis the Season: Shopping for the Clan Christmas Conclave

It’s ten days to Christmas Eve, and excitement in the Clan is growing. So is the realization that we’ve got to get our act together.

Not on gift shopping; that’s mostly done, for a wonder. No, it’s the food…

You see, there’s going to be anywhere from a dozen to twenty people out at the Ranch at […]
