A Pinot Crazed time

Been a while, i know, but in this interim, been doing a lot of reading, traveling and enjoying fine wines.

Well for the wines, it has mostly been Pinot: Freeman (so yummy!), Williams-Selyan 2000 Russian River, Rochioloi (so classic) and a real sleeper, CASE by Robert Talbott (1999), yes all of his wines are named after children and family, go figure!

If you really want a good meal, get a pizza and a bottle of Freeman.
Hits the spot, even from a decent pizza, just so fun and good!

As to a book or two, let me suggest Robert Brunner and Stewart Emery's Do You Matter: How Great Design will make people love your company.

A great article from the October Harvard Business Review should be on your reading as well
"The Contribution revolution: Letting Volunteers Build your Business" by Scott Cook, yes the same Scott Cook from Intuit.

My friend Eric Porres sent me a great quote that I will end up, on this day of 25 hours:

"Bottles of wine aren't like paintings. At some point, you have to consume them. The object of life is to die with no bottles in your cellar. To drink your last bottle of wine and to go to sleep that night and not wake up."   Jay McInerney.

Have a great 25 hour day! November 2,
