Foursight Winery

May 17 marked the grand opening of Foursight Winery's Tasting Room (http://foursightwines.blogspot.com/). Ethan and I made the drive up to Boonville to taste some wine, have a few treats,visit with Friends and suffer the heat. The cupcakes were the best part.

Dakota Hunt

Our furry friend Dakota passed away last night. He died peacefully in his sleep. Tyler and Natalie adopted Dakota about 9 years ago. He was probably 1ish when he was adopted, making him about 10. He will be missed.

Greater Tuna

I saw another play on Friday, "Greater Tuna" in Rohnert Park. This is comedy with only two actors, but they each play several characters. The setting is a small town in Tuna, Texas. It basically projects the stereotype of the southern conservative, racist, bible belt Jim-Bobs and Billy-Bobs of society. Aside from a funny story line and poking fun at the red neck culture, these two actors display a tremendous amount of talent switching between characters throughout the entire performance.

Top 10 Reasons to Love Summer

Fall is my favorite season, but there is so much about summer to love. Here is my top 10 reasons to love summer:

10.Concerts-seems bands travel more during the summer than any other time of year.
9. More daylight-the sun is shining when the alarm goes off.
8. Blockbuster movies.
7. Fireworks on the 4th of July.
6. The County Fair.
5. Weddings-people like to get married during the summer. This year we know four people getting married between June and August.
4. BBQ's and eating outdoors.
3. Fresh (local)corn-on-the-cob.
2. Fresh (local) fruit-peaches, strawberries, watermelon.
1. Baseball

Allergy Shots

I started my allergy treatment for dust mites last week. Allergy shots are the same concept as vaccinations, you r given shots containing the substance you are allergic to. The dose starts very low and it builds up as time goes on. I have to get the shots once a week for about 20 weeks and then once a month for up to 5 years. The idea is by exposing my body to the allergin over and over my system will build immunity. Over time I should technically no longer be allergic to dust mites.

Guys and Dolls

I saw the play Guys and Dolls Saturday with my mom and sister at the Santa Rosa JC. It is such a fun play, with a very talented cast. It looks like May could be the month of plays. I'd also like to see Greater Tuna, a two man comedy and The Mouse Trap, an Agatha Christie suspense play. Then of course, the SRJC starts their summer theater in June. Five plays in 11 weeks. I already have plans to see the Wedding Singer with a group from work. I'd also like to see Wicked, playing in SF right now. Between plays and weddings, this will be a busy summer!
