Are those real?!

Posted by rojung on May 23, 2007

Breast implants. What an incredible invention. Although I don’t have any myself, I am partial to one’s decision to go the bigger route. Hey, whatever makes you happy. In fact, I’m heading out to California in a couple weeks to take care of my sister. She will be going under the knife for that reason. I must admit, I was a little skeptical at first and hesitant due to the possibility of human error, but I know she will be fine. And afterward, she will be extremely happy. This has been 10 or so years in the making. I’m very anxious to see the result. ;o) Who knows, I may just want to get some boobies of my own one day! HA!

“The Secret”

Posted by rojung on May 22, 2007

So I finally decided to jump on the bandwagon and read the book The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.  Let me tell you, it gave me this uncanny, energetic feeling inside.  Definitely quite odd for me.  Just reading it made me feel so good and positive.  I thought I could conquer the world!  The book is a great motivational source and really gave me a new perspective on life.  No really, if you haven’t read it, please do.  It makes you focus on what’s necessary and important, reminding you not to dwell on the negative.  Live the life that you want.  Be the person you want to be.  You are the one in charge of your life and your thoughts are what create it. 

The Secret… does it work?  March 5, 2007  msnbc.com

If you’re a woman trying to lose weight, you had your choice of two pieces of advice last week. One, from the American Heart Association, was to eat more vegetables and exercise an hour a day. The other was from a woman named Rhonda Byrne, a former television producer who has written what could be the fastest-selling book of its kind in the history of publishing with 1.75 million copies projected to be in print by March 2, just over three months since it came out, plus 1.5 million DVDs sold.  read more

The best wine label

Bonny Doon vineyard  smallwinemakers.ca

Like Columbus who sought a trade route to Asia, Randall Grahm set sail in 1979 for the Great American Pinot Noir, foundered on the shoals of astringency and finesselessness and ended up running aground in the utterly unexpected New World of Rhône and Italian varieties.  With his family’s assistance, Randall purchased property in the Santa Cruz Mountains in a hypnogogically quaint area known as Bonny Doon intent on producing the Great American Pinot Noir. The GAPN proved to be systematically elusive but he was greatly encouraged by experimental batches of Rhône varieties.  read more

Bonny Doon tasting room  September 2005  winecountry.com

Though off the beaten path, many Santa Cruz, California visitors make the scenic journey to Bonny Doon’s regional wine tasting room in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This unconventional winery is well-known for unique French and Italian-style wines.  read more

Bonny Doon breaks out  wines.com

Imagine being near Soledad Prison when the searchlights start scanning the walls, sirens are going off, and some sheets are hanging from a window. Of course, it sounds like a typical jail break, but what it really is, is a winery breaking the mold of romance and tradition. In this case, one can imagine Randall Grahm singing “Tradition” and his voice booming over the local enophiles who tout their aging collections.   read more

Big House Red  damngoodwine.com


This wine is from the completely whacked folks at Bonny Doon Vineyards. They blend together traditional French varietals Syrah, Grenache, Carignane and Mourvèdre with Italian varietals Dolcetto and Barbera. This blending produces a rather nice wine that comes in under $10. The price point is key here. There is so much crappy red wine out there now for under $10 that whenever I can find something that is good or very good in that price range, I will let you folks know.  read more

Ever since human beings began cultivation, they have enjoyed vegetables that are rich in vitamins and minerals.  However, during the cold winter season, cultivation was practically impossible, which naturally led to the development of a storage method: pickling.  As a kind of pickled (salted) vegetable, kimchi was born in Korea around the 7th century.  read more
