TODAY, Tuesday ... thinking of love, thinking and feeling in different
languages, writing and posting, dining, smiling, feeling warm-'n-fuzzy and
snug and content and celebrating wedding anniversaries as well as
Valentine's Day, and all other special moments and memories where love
caught us, wrapped itself inextricably round us, floored us, made us fly
and sing and shout and feel giddy and silly and so young and wanted and
alive. It happens anytime, it happens anywhere to anyone, It happens!

LOVE IS ALL AROUND goes the start of the movie LOVE ACTUALLY which my son
and I love to watch over and over and over again much to the amusement of
his sister and mother! WE are both complete romantics, oh well, that is
just fine with me.

MY FAVORITE part of the movie,though there are too many to count is when
the Englishman and the lady from Portugal fall immediately in love with one
another and end up in the freezing-cold lake where he is writing a novel
and all the sheets get swept up by a sudden breeze and end up in the lake
along with the two of them! Now that is love! Love it, too!!!!!

February 10th, 2015 , ... it is cold outside and so please bundle up and be
warm and safe. Come on by and get ready for any special celebrations that
you may have like Valentine's Day this Saturday but certainly not exclusive
to just Valentine's Day! Life is a celebration, embrace it and the moment
and let us help you to be prepared already when the mood, the moment, the
milestone, the memory, the myriad of influxes and influences invade quickly
you complete personal and public space and you can do nothing but respond
and be totally swept-up in that moment! It happens, we all know, be ready
and prepared, as it is helpful to have whatever at hand as you will
certainly, most definitely have each other in hand. Cheers!

HAD A GREAT MEAL last night at Villa Mozart in Old Towne Fairfax in
northern Virginia with each bite being completely memorable, what a great
treat! I LOVED how my confit of Calamari came served in a small black
skillet, so rustic and yet so classy, too : and the taste , like all the
tastes ( my wife and I shared bites of each others' meal back and forth ,
smiling, grinning, feeling the wondrous flavors and taste-sensations
exploding, colliding, riding, combining as they most certainly did ) -
wonderful. We will return : world-top-class meal.

SO : Que Pasa ?!? Quoi De Nouveau?!? R U Prepared ?!?

display in the Calvert Marine Museum... " Cheers, great beer, great work.

3) ' Triple " Belgian Style from the LEGEND Brewing Co. in Richmond,
Virginia, On Special for $8.99 a 1 Pt. 6 Fl. Oz bottle, ... : " Six months
of the aging brings a soft smoothness to this sweet, complex ale. The
result is a ' sipping  beer ' that doesn't seem like one. Legend Tripel is
a deceptively strong beer, best shared in celebration and in moderation...

some super Pisco Sours using the La Diablada that we sold-out of here this
Saturday. The MACCHU PISCO is still here , a few bottles till
reinforcements arrive and it sells for $28.99. Wonderful, well-worth the

a real lof of a ' whole lot ' leaving some real holes to fill with lots of
holes, as the Beatles sang on their song " A Day In The Life " : " Now we
know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall ... " Now we know how
