  1. It looks like Kerry wasn’t to happy with me in one of Bob’s pictures….
  2. We have Amazing sponsors. One of our first is Renee Drolet of Chocolat-chocolat. not only has she supported us every year, but, she is one awesome, friendly and generous woman!! She brought enough molds to allow a drawing where every participant received a mold but she also brought several for us to use during the workshop. Now that my friends is Amazing. thank You Renee
  3. A little behind - dinner last night was in NOTL at a little place owned by Twin Sisters winery ribs with broccoli….
  4. Some of you who have been to several previous Workshops may recognize this place. It’s where we are hanging our hats for the night. It’s here, in the lobby, where Kerry and I met the inimitable, wonderful Ruth, who became a close, lifelong friend…. but, i digress. We hit the road and enjoyed several (I stopped counting) glasses of wine from various NOTL vineyards. (We were sent on a mission to bring Icewine home for several friends) of course, we had to sample other varietals as well….
  5. Breakfast in Johnstown, PA….aka Flood City. We had breakfast at a small diner next to the ACE Hardware, supposedly run by a fellow who retired, left Johnstown, but came back and was so bored (but, then, who would not be bored there?) so he opened up Jax’s diner…. the food was quick, hot, and quite tasty… Really not to bad for $7.99….itmwould have been better if they had real Vermont maple syrup instead of Maple Syrup flavored Karo
