commercialism, morality..uh..what were we talking about?

Im a little behind in posting to the blog, it’s time consuming, I’ve enlisted help from Melody writes, thanks Melody and Rick from duncansong.com to keep things alive. It makes a big difference. I’m working on a big web design project, and I just set up feeds for Kesha Bruce, (keshabruce.com) I’m doing the regular production for the green tea and honey radio show and the talkin’ ish podcast and enjoying life here in Sanity Cruz. The talkin’ ish had a record setting 3000+ downloads for the pod last week. Seems Mr. Heller is a friend of JP Rosenbaum of the Bachelorette TV show. They’ve worked hard with links and twitter to promote the podcast and it works. This makes me think…hmmmm..how many people would “enjoy” seeing a video of Shemp the rabbit brutally uh…”taking advantage” of our cat? is my humanity so degraded by my desire to create website hits that I would effectively pimp my cats butt out to get traffic? It will only take a moment of human weakness and this will happen. I see him looking at the cat and I know what he’s thinking.

As some of you know I occasionally sell wine in Costco for Cameron Hughes. Chwine.com It’s a buck or two for me to patch the financial holes. A couple weeks ago we had a thing called the contractor summit in SF. They treated us to breakfast at The hotel Larkspur at Union square, took us to see the new direct to consumer ware house in Oakland and gave us a great tasting at the Hyatt in the Urban Tavern. They also gave us some really cool selling tools.

Here is a pic at the warehouse.

At the ch wine consumer warehouse

rob edlemon leads his charges. Wine awaiting your orders


that’s your wine shipments getting ready to roll! I snagged a bottle of the Ribera Del Duero Tempranillo (lot 263) if you like a tempranillo with great fruit, awesome body and solid tannins……do it. Its’ $24 online at chwine.com.

Other than working and thinking about the fall (im taking final cut pro), and some other stuff at Cabrillo, a trip to Carson City next week to show off Cody and his new brain and visit the Father figure, I’m pretty boring! We welcome your input, if you want to post here let me know. We are gonna need a update on burning man! You are welcome and highly encouraged to do so. or I might let the rabbit out of his cage. ~Brooke

Big weekend Santa Cruz

Glowing cat eyes


Thats just Nuts! Tasting oil, olives and tea, seeing the Art

It was first Friday again last night, got out of the house on a awesome night in Sanity Cruz. I slanged some wine in Sand city until four, came home and grabbed Steve and hauled him down town, so we were a little late. We hit up the museum, and met up with Rick Duncan

Rick Duncan

That boy aint normal! Duncansong.com

and his friend Nina. Rick had bought a new Uke and is working on bohemian rhapsody. We wandered up stairs on Nina’s recommendation to see the Wood working show. This is awesome!   I was staring mindlessly at some cabinets hanging on the wall,  thinking, I remember seeing this piece at Cabrillo… I look down, its says Patrick Stafford, who is standing right behind me. http://www.cabrillo.edu/~pstafford/PatrickMay312007.html

Duh! the room was full of people, it was warm, I told Patrick good thing he was wearing a kilt, and was he going “commando’? He thought it would be cooler if he was. Rick and Nina took off to Lincoln street to The True Olive Connection and we caught up with them there. What a blast! We agreed the pomegranate balsamic would make a wonderful salad. Then we dropped in on the Nut Kreations next door. Beautiful presentation, make your own trail mix.  We caught up with Rick at happy high herbs on Cathcart. Cindy gave us samples of Damiana tea, Rick blasted the customers with uke tunes while I chatted with some new friends. If you are looking for alternatives to drugs both legal and ill-legal check this place out. It’s decorated in yellow and purple, full of info, thoughts, advice and products. They don’t sell cannabis. We had run out of time so we had to leave. I didnt get to try any wine, but thats Ok, sometimes wine puts a different slant on things, and I’ve tasted most of what was down there last night.  Santa Cruz Mountian wines are wonderful, grab the pinot noir when you see it. If you are into the wine scene and you’d like to blog about it I would welcome contributions! Ok, it’s Saturday morning There’s a new Green tea and honey show for today, it’s about blue berries…as Dr. Shunney says…yummy!  Also, there a funny story about the bachelorette TV show and a mis-sent text from JP Rosenbaum on this weeks talking ish podcast.  2000 downloads yesterday from this website!  Ok…I’m gonna have a snack, clean up and head back down town for the Cabrillo art and wine! See ya there?    ~Brooke
