I'll Fly Away

(My work trip last week expressed in only pictures of food that I ate.)

Will Work for Wine

...or chocolate!

Recently we went on a Valentine's wine tour in Oklahoma. The last time we went on such a trip was a long time ago and it was only a day trip. This was an overnight trip...

There were a little over 50 of us on the bus snacking and talking that Friday evening, looking forward to the first winery when we ended up without phone signal at the end of a dirt road during a full moon. Our driver, Don, had it under control but it was a little scary for a bit ... until the hosts showed up with wine, that is!

Goin' Back to Cali

Actually, I went and am back. I didn't do a whole lot this time outside of work meetings and work, but I did get out a little to enjoy some food outside of my hotel and the conference room, to see some beautiful inspirational things and to learn about Fullerton's rich history.

Between Two Posts

So between the last two blog posts, I was able to escape the cold, dreariness of Oklahoma in favor of the sunny, balminess of Florida.

One day, after the work was complete, we had a little time to explore so we went to the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine.

Curry Favor

I've been hearing that phrase a lot recently, maybe because of the excessive politicking going on in the world these days.

- ingratiate oneself with someone through obsequious (obedient or attentive to an excessive or servile degree.) behavior.  e.g.  "a wimpish attempt to curry favor with the new bosses"

Nah, I think I'd rather have curry flavor!
