2012 Etude Pinot Noir Rosé — Wine Of The Week


Kitchen Spotlight
Joey and Gerard’s Mount Washington hillside home is a wonderful mix of vintage elements and colors with a little French countryside charm. The couple completely renovated the kitchen, top to bottom, but the redo is very much in keeping with the vintage styling of the rest of their home.
From the starburst floor tiles to the white tiled countertop, from the blond cabinetry to the vintage lighting, this gorgeous kitchen has a lot of “soul,” as one reader commented in the full House Tour . It’s unusual to see a kitchen renovation stay so true to its vintage roots, so props to Joey and Gerard!
I really love the floor tiles, particularly against the rich wood table. And what a view outside those windows!

Simple grilled fish or even steak. It would work really well with Emily’s recent recipe for Polenta Tart with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes as well as Faith’s Mini Lamb Burgers on Roasted Potato Rounds . About Etude and this 2012 Rosé of Pinot Noir: Etude Wines, located in Carneros, the famed AVA that straddles Napa and Sonoma counties, was founded 25 years ago, on the philosophy that great wine is made in the vineyard, not the winery. Etude is a Napa Green Certified Winery. The grapes for this delicious rosé are all from Etude’s estate vineyards – notably the Grace Benoist Ranch. Handpicked at night to retain acidity, the grapes were whole cluster pressed for finesse, then fermented and aged in old oak barrel before bottling, to create a more structure driven style of rosé.

Coworkers Nationwide Embrace Tearfully After Painful 3-Day Separation
‘Hallelujah, God Is Good!’ Reunited Employees Cry
WASHINGTON—With tears of relief streaming down their faces, coworkers around the nation wrapped one another in jubilant embraces Tuesday to celebrate the blessed end of their Labor Day weekend separation, sources confirmed. “I missed you so much! Thank God we’re back together again!” employees across the United States reportedly said to one another between whoops of joy, all while lifting each other up in emotional bear hugs. “Worst three days of my life! It felt like months. The only thing I thought about the whole time—while I was sleeping in and having backyard cookouts—was your faces and how much I missed them. You guys are the best! I love you so much.” At press time, American colleagues were hanging on each other’s words as they recounted their weekend activities.

Question How T Keep Fiddler Crabs Alive?

Caught a limit of blues to add to the smoker this weekend. On Monday I saw a bunch of fish on my fish finder and hoped they were blues or stripers. Decided to try jigging them up. Had a good breeze and it was a bit rough but after several tries to get the right weight and float I ended up catching one.

I’ve been playing around with fiddler crabs for puppy drum bait and they love them. It’s easy for me to get them on the ES but was wondering how I can keep a large # of them alive?

Delta Air Lines: Next Year, Our Health Care Costs Will Increase By ‘Nearly $100 Million’


That audience also has been hugely attracted by Sync, the infotainment system that Ford used to blaze a trail for the whole industry. “Technology is the key driver with the Millennial age cohort,” Merkle told me. The recent troubles Ford has experienced with MyFord Touch, which essentially is Sync 2.0, largely weren’t reflected in these results, in part because MyFord Touch is only now becoming available, in the new Fiesta. Other enhancements in the 2014 Fiesta will include the availability of a new 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine. Another boost for Fiesta has been Ford’s concentrated, and successful, efforts to sell them in California, where the brand was limp for a long time.

The insurer has overhead expenses—let’s say 15 percent of premiums—which include its labor costs and perhaps a small profit margin. Self-insurance works a different way. Many large employers, instead of paying premiums to an insurance company, cut out the middleman and pay directly for the health costs that their workers incur. This involves additional financial risk for the employer, but the company saves money that would otherwise go to an insurer’s overhead. And there’s an additional benefit. Under Section 514 of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 , or ERISA, companies who directly fund their workers’ health benefits, instead of purchasing health insurance on their behalf, are not bound by state insurance regulations. Because state insurance regulations often act to drive up the cost of health insurance, many companies—especially large ones with a broad risk pool—are better off if they self-insure their workers. ERISA plans are also exempt from a number of Obamacare’s regulations. But the new health law does impose a number of mandates on self-insuring employers.

On Peace, Freedom And The Fearsome Reputation Of The Ford Falcon

Last week, I had the privilege of attending a Naturalization Ceremony. If you have never had the opportunity to be there when immigrants to our country take the oath of citizenship and exchange their Green Cards for their Naturalization Certificates, you are missing out on one of those special things that makes the United States of America a truly great place to be. Looking out across the crowd you can see people who began their lives in the far corners of the world sitting beside one another without regard for gender, race or national origin. It matters little where they came from, whether or not they once lived on one side of some armed border or the other, today they are Americans and the old hatreds, if not forgotten, are at least set aside. On that day, they are united in their desire to join in our great experiment, to offer their descendents to the great American melting pot in the hopes that they will blend seamlessly into the fabric of our nation in the same way that we, the descendants of so many who made that journey before them, have done. The stories they tell are often powerful. We often think they come to our shores simply for freedom and to take advantage of the economic opportunity our country offers, but often they are here because we are an island of peace in a terrible world and because they have endured horrors that would keep most of us awake at night if we spent too long thinking about them. At the ceremony I attended the speaker, a young man from Rwanda, told of his childhood experiences hiding in a thorn bush to avoid being murdered and of walking over corpses so thick on the ground that he could not avoid stepping on them as he sought to escape his war ravaged land. Other people have spoken to me about poverty, hopelessness and, worst of all, what happens when your own government institutes a reign of terror and people begin to vanish. Such was the case in Argentina in the mid 1970s and, although the reign of terror is now ended and the situation improved, one icon of those times still strikes fear into the populace whenever it appears: the otherwise unremarkable Ford Falcon. In 1961, Ford sent two examples of their recently introduced Falcon to Argentina in order to help their factory in La Boca set up a production line.

Before the nation’s attention turned to the March on Washington, William Moore was making his own pilgrimage for racial equality. He intended to walk from Tennessee to Jackson, Miss., to ask the Mississippi governor to end segregation — but the Baltimore mail carrier never reached his destination.
