Me 2010

Wining...

Tuesday, tammy_g,pezazul and I went to Defiance and Augusta for wine tasting.

First stop was brunch at First Watch.

First up was Sugar Creek. I liked their Sunset Red ("Smooth semi-dry red has spicy berry flavors which complement pasta or lighter meat dishes") and the Rustica Red ("Four grape varieties blended together offer a sweet wine ripe with cherry and wild berry flavors. Great with cheese or fruit served on your deck or patio." ) best. Was not too crazy about their sweet wines- Blackberry Thicket, Peach Hallow and Raspberry Patch - though I think Joycie would have liked the Peach one. Would have liked to try their port, but they were sold out.

(no subject)

Flew home on Wednesday - 10:20 flight out of St. Louis - no weather or any other problems this go around. Security line was the longest I'd ever seen. By the time I'd gotten through security and picked up something to eat at Burger King, it was almost time to board.

Snoozed through most of the trip. The St. Louis to Salt Lake City was a full flight. The Salt Lake City to Oakland was not too bad - the middle seat was empty for a change.

G & the kids picked me up.

Can I just say that I love Bay Area weather? The fog's been in every morning and the high for the day hasn't been over 75 since I got home. Aaahhh...

Got my XML final back - 82/100 (waaah!) but I managed to get a 90.5 for the class, so I've kept my A average. Whoooweeee! The multiple choice questions got me again. The program which I had to wing it because I didn't have the exchanger program installed - I got 13/14 so I'm happy. Next up - PHP & Perl.
