“I burn the competition like a flame thrower/My rhymes they age like wine as I get older,” is a Yauch rap from Beastie Boys album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two. Unfortunately, Adam Yauch is not getting any older, but his rhymes will continue to age like fine wine. Here’s another wine lyric taken from the […]

It’s your day Dad! You are probably already up and working on your boat getting ready for another season in Bristol Bay. Thank you for finding all of the salmon you have found over the years. They have provided for your family, your crewmembers’ lives and their families, and they have fed countless people around […]

This morning I got news from my sister that she was recognized by New York Times chief wine critic, Eric Asimov, in the paper’s Diner’s Journal blog. A number of NYT editors chimed in to the post “What We’re Reading” and Asimov gave a nod to Hawk Wakawaka Wine Reviews post entitled Thinking Frank Cornelissen: […]

Today I just want to share a wine that I think is worth seeking out by any lover of bubbles. Le Brut Rosé de Baumard, Crémant de Loire is lovely and versatile, yet affordable. I first found out about it because it was amongst a group of bubbly bottles that my husband gifted me with […]

We enjoyed another sunny day in Juneau and it was so nice getting out for a skate ski. It was true spring skiing with the snow turning mushy and wet in some spots and I didn’t even need to wear a hat while I was out. I’m loving it. The weather inspired me to go […]

This morning as I was checking my Facebook feed, this is what the Eaglecrest Ski Area homepage posted, “Over 24 inches of wet heavy snow since Monday! Snow and weather conditions will delay the opening of our lifts this morning. Patrol will be doing control work on the entire mountain – no uphill access above […]

We have gotten over a foot of snow during the past couple of days. As a skier I should be ecstatic, but I find myself feeling grumbly and frustrated. Part of me wants to tell myself; “…itsa notso bad, aw shuttuppa yo face!” like that old silly song. (You don’t know what I’m talking about […]

Juneau has gotten a lot of snow in the past couple of days, even at sea level. Today has been a day of obligations that have kept me from getting out in it. Getting on my skis usually provides a means of clearing my head and making room for thoughts to flow around. Without that […]

Earlier this winter Linda Wertheimer hosted Martha Stewart on NPR to promote her new book, Martha’s Entertaining, A Year of Celebrations. I was very enamored with a section of the book that was discussed; the Burgundy Dinner. Apparently Martha bought an estate that had a cellar full of Burgundy wines that had some age on […]
