Things To Do In The Napa Valley When You Are All Wined Out.

Those of you who have read my articles before know how crazy I am about the Napa Valley. It is absolutely GORGEOUS!

And that takes nothing away from the other wine growing regions of California, they are great too. I just happen to really like the Napa Valley and its wines. Over 3 million people come to the valley each year to savor wine, relax and get away.

So, after an intense day or two of tours and tastings, what do you do?

If you pack too much into your trip, you may want to just sit back and relax a bit and do something other than just more wine tasting.

Well, the Napa Valley has you well taken care of!

Hiking trails, museums, art galleries, discount outlet malls, golf, tennis, horse back riding, historic buildings, historic state parks, spas, ballooning and much more.

Take an afternoon and visit historic Robert Louis Stevenson state park.

Do a round of golf at Kennedy Golf Course (one of several courses).

See the history of the Napa Valley at the Napa Valley Museum.

In Calistoga you can visit the Calistoga Geyser and relax in a delightful hot geyser spring spa.

Don't want to travel all the way to Calistoga from Napa? There are several excellent spas in Napa, Yountville and St. Helena.

Or, you can combine a bit of wine tasting with art. Visit the Hess Collection to see their art gallery and savor their fine wine.

Artesa is "the jewel of the Napa Valley", sitting high on a hill, looking out over the Carneros region towards San Francisco, just 10
minutes from downtown Napa and feels like you are miles away. Here's a secret - after your tasting, walk out on the back porch and
see gorgeous vistas of rolling hills. On a clear day you can see almost all the way to San Francisco. Artesa is built into the top
of a hill. It has wonderful fountains. It really is a jewel.

Cuvaison is another winery with art.

Looking for spectacular architecture? Visit Chateau Montelena, Darioush or Niebaum Coppola.

Copia - The American Center For Wine Foods and the Arts is an educational look into the history and culture of art, food and wine.

There is just so much you can do that you don't need to spend all of your time doing tours and tastings.

The single most important thing to remember? Relax and enjoy your stay. There is lots to do in Napa and it will still be here when you come back for another visit.

In an intriguing article, long-time technology pundit Bob Cringely has made a compelling case for the death of Windows Mobile. He is, as he admits, no expert on mobile phones, but this counts in his favour as he has no bias towards one platform or another. Analyzing the current mobile phone market and some of the announcements that have been made this year, he predicts that Apple's iPhone will become the dominant smartphone platform, Google's Android will be second, and Symbian and RIM fight

Deer in the Thickets

Thu, 23 Oct 08 16:26:18 -0700
It is hard to believe that an animal as large as a big buck deer with the equivalent of a chair on its head could move about as easily as they do in a dense thicket. This is the choice place for them. One would think that they would choose easier walking paths, but they are seeking security and want to hang on to those trophy racks. At night they choose easier paths, and in fact they do most of their meandering at that time. But since you are a daytime hunter, the thickets are your best chance

RideOut Interview

Thu, 23 Oct 08 15:59:56 -0700
Many emcees spend their entire careers trying to tap into audiences outside of immediate rap circles. Some will collaborate with rock artists, others will make deliberately female-friendly singles, and others will others look to land spots on multi-genre tours. The career of Lansing rapper RideOut, on the other hand, is the other way around. His first live performance was at his high school’s “Battle of the Bands” concert, and while at college in Ohio, he became the lead vocalist of SoundScape,
