Bernardo Winery

Had a great time with friends at a local winery. If you live in San Diego, you should go spend a day at this little local treasure. Very fun, friends, great food, and wine! If you eat at Cafe Merlot and want a light lunch, just get the cheese plate and a pitcher of Sangria's. The cheese plate comes with a huge plate of bread and crackers, and another plate of olives, cheese, cranberries, roasted garlic and sun dried tomatoes. We didn't even finish it and hardly needed lunches after that.

There are all sorts of shops at the winery, you could spend a whole day there. If you have a dog, they are welcome at the winery, even in the wine tasting room.

But as in all cases, its not really the restaurant, the food, or any of that, its the friends you spend the day with.

cheers! Johanna Peterson

Countdown Calendar Class

This is my latest project. It is a count down to Christmas calendar. The numbers go from 43-01, so right near Thanksgiving you can start your countdown. It hangs on the wall and the numbers are magnetic. You can store the extra numbers on the back.
I am teaching this saturday at 2:30 at yellowbird scrapbook store, October 10th. I am going to add another date since the class is going over well. email me if you want more info on dates for the class. :) thanks for looking.

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon.
As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the
bird's chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away."
The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?"
Yes, I am sure. The duck is dead," replied the vet.
"How can you be so sure?" she protested. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something."
The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room.
He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room.
A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on it's haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.
The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."
The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman.
The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!" she cried, $150 just to tell me my duck is dead?"
The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's now $150.

The conference room we will be using for scrapping. Great lighting, in the middle of the ship (so its nice and smooth) a great view, and a built in powerpoint system and microphone!

This is your private balcony outside of your stateroom. Oh, by the way they make you towel animals each night with a chocolate on your pillow and clean your room 2x a day!



they have 2 basketball courts

the atrium and glass elevators were beautiful!

Pack your bags and gather your scrapping supplies for our cruise in May! I took a tour of the ship - the "Radiance of the Seas" and it was spectacular! here are some photos from the tour.
