Hear tell that Joy Sterling from Iron Horse Vineyards was a guest at a luncheon for the fellow thought to be the next leader of China and she brought along the wine for the occasion. Henry Kissinger, Senators Dianne Feinstein, Lindsey Graham and John Kerry; Human Rights Watch chief Ken Roth, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman and CEOs John Watson of Chevron, Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs, Robert Iger of Disney and Jeffrey Katzenberg of Dreamworks, along with Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and the guest of honor Xi Jinping all toasted with Joy's 2007 Chinese Cuvee. This is a limited release wine, $98 per bottle.
Whatever the disagreements between hosts and guest of honor, apparently there was no disagreement about the wine. West Sonoma County wine is the best!

Mr. Healdsburg Pageant
Saturday, Feb 25 7:30p
at Raven Performing Arts Theater, Healdsburg, CA
An all-male parody of the event everyone loves to hate: the anachronistic beauty contest. Come watch local gentlemen vie for the (plastic) crown by competing in all the usual categories: beachwear, formalwear, talent, and interview.
This is a FUNDRAISER for the Raven, and your votes (with $$$) help determine the finalists.
Just might have to drive the half an hour from Guerneville to see this!

Hiked today through the forest and along the Russian River with the pups and thought I would give credit to my wonderful, talented neighbor who created Trash Tiger to protect our local forest from litterbugs. If you can't make out the text, it says:
Trash Tiger, Oh Fierce Protector. Feel free to borrow packs and return with any trash for pickup. The creatures thank you!
This is all done in ceramics. Many thanks, oh fierce protector--you know who you are.
