An Identity Taking Root-Texas Tuesday

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” When I was first asked the question, I apparently thought “a Queen” was something you could apply for and I’d be a nurse on the side. Then I moved on to a teacher or a “beautician.” That term gives a hint as to my age. But […]

Down (and Up) in Kokomo

If I were to say, Kokomo, you might have a Pavlovian reaction. Visions of Tom Cruise flipping a shaker, pouring a blue concoction while the steel drums chime in the background.

Who’s your Mama?-Choosing a Mother’s Day Wine

Some clichés don’t bother me a bit. In fact, some, I relish. Like pink for Mother’s Day. Pink flowers, pink cards and pink wine suit me just fine. While the color choice may be cliché, I am certain your mother is not and she deserves a wine choice that fits her personality. Mom-Next-Door She answers […]
