Although I certainly take for granted power to our house for lights, fresh drinking water, and the beautiful community pool literally just a few steps out our doorstep, I think the thing that I take for granted most is how accessible this area is to all sorts of fun activities.

As many of you are aware, I like to drink wine. Because I like to drink wine, I decided that I needed to have lots of wine available to satisfy my wine drinking habit.
Yes indeed, I needed to have lots of red wine, lots of white wine, a little of the bubbly and even some rose colored stuff. This thirst for wine (no pun intended) has in turn resulted in my accumulation of a wine cellar filled with several thousand bottles.
Now that I have accumulated this large wine collection, many people tend to assume that I must be very knowledgeable about wineâ€¦.a true connoisseur. The simple truth is I that I cannot relate to most wine reviews.
When the wine is described as subtle, yet enticing with hints of black cherry, tobacco and lead pencilâ€¦.I think it sounds like a snooty person describing a lousy tasting vino. If the wine in question was described as tasting good, I would be just fine.
So now you know that I am not a wine snob and I have definitely spent way too much money on my wine collection. By now you also should be wondering what all of this nonsense is about?

We each have the ability to tune out the noise. Â Whether it is not watching the news or taking a break from the internet, sometimes it is just a good idea to tune out the outside noise to realize that we are okay where we are at. Genius, right?
