Bourbon Country


I can’t tell you much about our recent trip to the distilleries here in Kentucky, as it’s going into print. But I can direct you to the photos. My favorites are of the Bed & Breakfast and their dog Gabe. We were also able to attend the Opening Night Gala of the Stephen Foster Story, a musical on the grounds of My Old Kentucky Home that is heading into its 49th season.

It never hurts to ask

Smalldisplay1Santa brought us a 12-bottle wine refrigerator (for our whites) for
Christmas. We were stumped as to where to put it, due to its 12-bottle size. We were at our local Party Town on Saturday, talking to our favorite wine geek, JP, when I mentioned how much I liked the design of the Toasted Head display case they had. It had the 16-bottle ‘fridge up top, and a large wine rack on the bottom. Kevin and I were discussing how we might build one when JP offered it to us, fridge and all, for quite a great price. Yep, we bought the display case.

Once we got it home, we easily slipped out the wine rack from the bottom (which is still usable on its own and pictured to the left) and slipped in our 12-bottle wine refrigerator. Of course, the casing says Toasted Head on the front of the ‘fridge and down the side of the wood, but I really can’t complain.

It just goes to show, it never hurts to ask. 

In this last photo, our bar area is displayed. The 40 btl refrigerator is to the far left, and the new display and double refrigerators is to the far right.

California Trip ’05 Photos are Up!

I posted the California photos yesterday. (This is where you’ll see that I need to go on a diet.) Just go to the Photo Albums page on our web site and make sure you pay attention to the password once you get there. Most of the photos are of nature and Victorian Houses, but there is an occasional photo of me or Kevin or the occasional one I took of the two of us while holding the camera myself.

Trip Photos are Up!

Well, we’re back and are still adjusting to the time change, plus the missing day due to the Monday holiday, and finally, I’m in carb withdrawal as I started the South Beach diet. (It’s like I’m in drug withdrawal from sugar!  Shakes, nausea, headaches … ugh!)

Photos will be up soon. For some reason, all my files aren’t loading, but I’m working on it. Been working on it all day.

Update: Photos are up!  http://www.kevinandshel.com , select Photo Albums from the menu or go directly to the Napa/San Francisco photo album. As for the South Beach Diet, I’ve decided to cut back on carbs this week – severely but not completely – and then go completely on the diet next week. Since I didn’t seem to be handling the carb withdrawal very well (I caved and had crackers today), I thought I’d ease myself off of carbs instead.
