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…

Black Women...It's Time to March for US!



I've been saying for a long time that BLACK WOMEN NEED A MOVEMENT. We need to march and fight for ourselves the way we do for Black men. Many Black women were turned off by the Women's March in January. Some felt our issues were ignored. And we can't sit around waiting for others to save us. The nonprofit Black Women United in Sacramento, Calif. decided it's time to put our issues first. On Saturday, July 15th they're taking their voices to the capital of California, along with other major womanist, Black feminist and civil rights leaders. The march is called Ain't I a Woman, in honor of Sojourner Truth's groundbreaking speech.

For this episode of the Cocoa Fly podcast I talk about the march and Black women's issues with Vocheri Thomas, one of the founders of Black Women United.
