Vicky's travels in Michigan

Well, I had a real treat yesterday.

Vicky is on vacation in Michigan and made a trip to Cascade Winery for an interview and to sample their meads.

I was able to carve out a couple hours of my day to meet her there.

Bob, Roger, and Rose have been instrumental in helping me get set up with almost everything but the honey to make my meads.

Roger is currently doing a coast-to-coast bicycle ride to raise money for Leukemia research. Vicky gave me permission to make a shameless plug for his fund raising efforts here! ;D

His local fund raising has been doing OK, but his on-line sponsorship has been a bit of a bust. In fact as of this morning I'm the ONLY online sponsor.

So here's the link to their web page and from there you can find the link to the fund raising site if you are so inclined.


Again, it was a great couple of hours spent chatting and tasting with Vicky, and I am already looking ahead to meeting more of you at the Mead Fest 2006.


edited to add the link I promised :-[
