At the Newtown Library

It was our pleasure to give a presentation at the Newtown Public Library last week. A large group showed up, and we tasted wines from the area and discussed the benefits of buying and drinking locally.

Cats Who Love Books

My cat, Maple, absolutely loves used books, specifically the smell of used books. As you can see, she lies down on them, rubs herself on them, and tries to read them. Just like her dad. I wonder how many other book cats are out there? Or if my genetics just predispose her to it?

Saltwater Farm Vineyard

If you can get the 2007 or 2008 Merlot from Saltwater Farm Vineyard, do it. Get a case. It was the best Merlot ever harvested in Connecticut, and it is gone. They are planting great new grapes there, and I'm excited to see how they taste. But the merlot was genius, and it's ready to drink right now. Get some.

At R.J. Julia Bookstore

This was a real honor, getting to read and speak at R.J. Julia's. Every author and celebrity who comes to Connecticut with a book comes here.

Incidentally, we met Jacques Pepin while we were there and he wished us good luck. His picture is above, along with just a few of the others who have been here. I think they're going to run out of wall space soon...
