My sister Lura's memorial is tomorrow

Lura and Floyd at their wedding in 1960
On September 16, 1942, my sister Lura was born in Parsons, Kansas.  She died on March 7th of this year. I don't know what I can say about my wonderful and all of the good things she has done for so many people. I made this movie [ 45 MB, Quicktime Movie ] about her life. It only touches the surface of the love she had for so many, and the love we have for her.

If you do not already have it, this movie requires Apple's Quicktime Player.

Two Wine Reviews

Wine Review: Valley of the Moon Winery Pinot Noir, Carneros 2001, (Bargain Bin) [My Rating, 3] Bought During Sonora Trip 2004 My rating 3. This was not very good at all. It is easy to see why this was in the bargain bin. Maybe it was corked?

Wine Review: Wild Coyote Coyote Creek Paso Robles, West-Side Merlot 1999, 450 Cases Produced, [My Rating, 10] Very nice! One of my favorite wines. Very mellow for a Merlot. We had a bottle at Sue's birthday, 12-02-02, Bought another case March 2003, Gave one to Tyler and Mary French.

Wine Review: Pinot Noir: Lorca Wines, 2001, Gary's Vineyard

Lorca Pinot NoirWine Review: 2001 Lorca Wines Pinot Noir: Monterey County, Santa Lucia Highlands, Gary's Vineyard [My Rating, 9] Wow, this is excellent. We enjoyed it a lot. It was very pleasant. Bought during our Feb. 05 getaway. Really good. "Richly spiced raspberry, roundly ripened edges." This was a real treat at a good price. A nice nose and a pleasant wine to drink. A great Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot at a great under $30 price.
