Cheers! My Birthday Celebration with the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours

After losing my grandmother a few weeks before my birthday, I really needed to celebrate life. I know she would want me to do that. This year, I decided to ring in a new year of life in wine country. My soror traveled up from So Cal to visit. This would be her first time in Napa. I didn’t want to drive so instead, we bought bus tickets for the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours.

Let me tell you something, going on this bus tour was one of the BEST decisions I made. The Napa Valley Wine Country Tours bus isn’t just any bus. It’s a limo bus that looks like a VIP club lounge on wheels. We paid $119 for an 8-hour trip, visit to 4 wineries in Sonoma and Napa counties, continental breakfast and lunch. It was worth every penny. The tastings aren't covered in the bus fare, but they ran about $10-$25. Wineries won't charge you for tastings if you buy a bottle. I recommend this for tourists and any Bay Area locals who have folks visiting from out of town and want a short excursion to Nap…

Suspect in Dae'von Bailey Case Arrested

Remember little Dae'Von Bailey? The 6-year-old boy was found beaten to death in his South LA home last month. This was after complaining numerous times to county social workers he was being abused. Police have been on the hunt for suspect Marcus Fisher, Dae'Von's mamma's ex-boyfriend. Praise God police found Fisher in Las Vegas. The LA Times reports Fisher was hiding out with his girlfriend. That's his picture you see. He was disguised in a dreadlocks wig, but police followed his drug-buying trail over time and nabbed him. But's what's up with the girlfriend? Why would any woman want to protect a man who is a suspect for killing a kindergartner? Lady, you want a man that bad? The LA Times summarized a report of the crime scene:

"The report said [Dae'Von Bailey] had multiple bruises in different stages of healing on his face, arm and head. He had multiple cuts to his chest and back and multiple small cuts to both feet and the top of both feet below the ankle.The boy's 5-year-old sister was in the home and apparently witnessed his death and was with Dae'von's body without any adults present for more than an hour, relatives said."

But there's a good part to this story Cocoa Fly readers. You see, Dae'Von's mother, Tylette Davis, 28 said she can " sleep better at night now" because Fisher is captured. Davis left Dae'Von in Fisher's care because she couldn't take care of him or her 5-year-old daughter. Actually, there have been a dozen abuse and neglect charges against Davis' family since 1999. But thank the heavens because NOW, Tylette can get some rest. I wonder if Dae'Von ever had a good-night's
sleep.
