Archive for February 2015


I’m flying to Dallas early tomorrow morning. I’ve never landed at Love Field before but I am looking forward to it. Word is, however, there’s going to be a snow storm. So I could wind up in a world of shit, traveling-wise. Wait. They have snow storms in Texas??? I’m going down there to meet […]

Organic Wines with Green Girl (New Video)
