  • Growing up fishing from boats off the coast of Santa Barbara/Ventura/Oxnard/Port Hueneme used to catch lots of what we called red snapper, rock cod, barracuda, sharks and sometimes ling cod and sea bass. If we were going deeper, groupers and rockfish and scorpion fish. Off the pier was perch and seasonal fish like bonito and sometimes more bass.... Read More

  • Going back to the Lingcod story I hinted at in the other thread, here's how that went...I just remember trying Lingcod years ago at some place like King's fish house, and then never seeing it again. I'd even read fish reports in the newspaper and hardly see any caught except sometimes a few in Oxnard, etc. Seems like they are mostly caught off o... Read More

  • Know the Bath St. from previous years. It was OK, but nowhere I'd choose on a special trip. More recently my sister did the first day of her honeymoon there on the way north from a ceremony in Ventura, but it was just a quick stopover for her/them and they were in and out in a flash, which she relayed was just fine.

I had the idea to pair up Greg and a friend from the Netherlands who was in San Diego for a convention, due to their interest in Tokaj, and it seemed to work well, everyone having a good time.Lessons Learned: Harslevelu is good stuff, and probably my new favorite white wine gra...

  • I once, a few years back, almost pulled the trigger on a real estate purchase in the hills back behind the Big Sur coastline. Was reminiscing on that today, and wondered why I never hear about wine from that area. Is it because I'm so far away and out of touch and there actually are barrels and barrels of wine being made there, or because the cu... Read More

  • 15 years ago, before I retired, I had a couple of bottles of Chevalier de Bayard. It was the best tasting wine I'd ever had. But now that I'm on a fixed income, I can no longer spend $25 on a bottle of wine.Does anybody have any ideas of what wines are close to it but less expensive?Thank you  Read More
