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…

Celebrities with Dancing Experiencing Should Not Compete On 'Dancing with the Stars'

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Dancing with the Stars a celebrity amateur competition ? If so, why have we seen so many figure skaters and pop music stars who know how to dance? There was Mya, Kristi Yamaguchi the dude from 98 Degrees, a Backstreet boy and so on. This season it's Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. She's an excellent dancer, very beautiful and will probably win the glitter globe trophy. But anyone that uses dancing in their career should not be on DWTS. I mean come on! Nicole is out of just about everyone's league. She's going up against people like Niecy Nash and astronaut Buzz Aldrin. There's no competition. Same thing goes for figure skater Evin Lysacek. The man dances on ice for a living. Competitors like Evin and Nicole take away the excitement for me because I know they're a shoe-in from day one.
***SPOILER ALERT*** But who's fun to watch are celebs who grow as dancers, like Pamela Anderson. I had no idea the Baywatch beauty could work dance floor. She was my favorite and I'm bummed she was voted off tonight. I really enjoyed watching her dance. She was graceful, sexy and had rhythm. It was cool to see another side of the pinup girl. No pun intended. I'm really loving Niecy Nash too. Once Niecy Nash is voted off I'm not sure if I'll watch the rest of the competition. I already know who's going to win.

The lineups are unfair. Who are they going to cast next season? Paula Abdul or Usher? If Michael Jackson was still alive the producers would probably invite him to compete too.


  1. I agree with you cocoafly because the show is suppose to be about amatures trying to dance. I like the show, but I'm curious why they continue to choose people where dancing is a part of their career.

  2. I would say I agree but Mya lost last year and that really pissed me off.

    Peace, Love and Chocolate

  3. @ Anonymous--Ditto!

    @ Tiffany--Mya lost in a popularity contest. She was up against Donny Osmond. But she was a better dancer. I wonder who will win this year.
