How to Host a Wine Tasting Party

Have you ever been to a wine tasting party? Want to know how to throw a wine tasting party? You don’t have to know wine to have a good time at this party. You just have to know what you like.

Hosting one is easier than it sounds. You get a bunch of friends together. Everyone brings their favorite bottle of wine and an appetizer to share. See, half of the work is already done!

The bottles are all tasted blindly and ranked. The votes are counted at the end of the night, and the person who brought the winning bottle gets to take home a prize. You can find some fun wine-related prizes for less than $30. And, of course, you can give out a booby prize for the worst bottle of the night. If you do that, be sure to warn people ahead of time that it will happen so no one has hurt feelings. Or tell them to buck up. Better yet, hand them a glass of wine.

No amount of conversation helped them understand; we had everything we needed right there amongst the green and tan sea of items that had taken over our home. We had us.   Read more >

He has spoken at local Board of Supervisor and Board of Education meetings regarding issues near to his heart. He plays in the marching band (he's the best one out there if you ask me or his dad!) He swims on a summer swim team. He volunteers at a local middle school band camp during the summer. He volunteered out of state at a food allergy camp last summer, giving up a week of his personal time to show these children a great, safe time!   Read more >

I bought a sewing machine, now what?

Mrs. HAs an Army Spouse I've learned to fend for myself.  Wait...wrong...I don't fend for myself out my choosing but rather out of my stubborness.  Hmph, okay, now that we have that little bit of information cleared up let's continue.  So, I fend for myself.  I can change a car tire, bandage a scratch, take out the garbage, knit a very nice dish cloth, practice lacrosse and even paint  toe nails.  I don't sew.  More accurately, I cannot sew!  The thought of a needle pulsating up and down so close to my fingers is disturbing.   Read more >
