Celebrating that time of year when the grapes are ready to bring in from the vines and get crushed, stomped or what have you. The Baers... Read More I couldn't stop. Completed four more science fiction classics since the last article. These three were worth extra notice:
Man Plus (1976): By Frederik Pohl, whose writing style I greatly enjoy and may seek out some of his other works (see below)....

She's coming up on 15.5 years old and getting a quarter mile out of her can be a challenge, often requiring a stop about two-thirds... Read More I did a little reorganizing of Fianna's gallery the other weekend, after noticing that I had not added any new photos for quite some time. Now she has two galleries, one for 2009-2010 and one for 2011-2012. Maybe they should be called the 'Baby Days' and... Read More If you're from the Sacramento area, and like wine, you've probably heard of Amador County Wineries.
