Vinturi Essential Wine Aerator Review

I need to tell you about this product. It is amazing, it can take an ordinary bottle of wine and turn it into a very silky smooth beverage that you would think came from a more expensvie bottle of wine.

The process of using the Vinturi Essential Wine Aerator is simple - open the bottle of wine, let it breathe a second, then take the bottle and Vinturi, and pour it into the glass.

Then of course, enjoy the wine. You will definitely taste the difference. Try a glass without funneling through the Vinturi, and one with the funnel.

It is worth the price.

Thank you to my Wife

Sometimes, my wife reads my blog, sometimes not. In case she does, I would just like to say thank you for doing all that you do, and for really creating a wonderful family and home.

Thank you so much also for the wonderful holiday meal you created this Thanksgiving, it all turned out so wonderful!

Love your husband.

A fun craft for the kids - making a gingerbread house

I have a great idea for anyone with little kids. If you live in a state with Trader Joes, think about picking up a Gingerbread House. The cost is about $7, and is a great way to spend time putting it together.

The most complicated part is the is whipping up the egg white, which if you do by hand like I did, takes about 10 minutes.  The Gingerbread house is from German and has that precision quality feel.  The only thing I would add, is more candy: chocolate M&M's, gummy bears, etc.  Oh yeah, you also will need a way to spread the frosting. I used a ziplock baggy with a small hole cut in the corner to apply it to the edges.

Here is a picture showing the finished product and a link from Amazon if you cannot find it at Trader Joes:

Rock Ballads - Strum and Sing

I want to tell all of the beginning to intermediate guitar players about a great book I came across for learning to strum and sing some very popular guitar songs.

My friend Mark brought the book over last week and we had a great time strumming and singing along to almost every song in the book. In fact we played some of them twice!

The reason the book is so good, in my opinion, is that it shows you the exact number of measures, indicated with a slashed line, that one needs to play for each line in the verse, chorus, bridge, intro and outro.
