Creates exceptional wines that are true to the varietal, terroir and vintage.
I've done some wandering around the planet but I always end up back home in the Pacific Northwest. Living here affords endless opportunities for exploration, education and entertainment. Activities abound in every direction, as numerous as the stunning vistas which accompany them. Clean air, clean water, what's not to love.My habitation within the State of Washington began in 1976 but family connections run back to the early twentieth century. Grandma Maude went to Clarkston High school, then graduated from Washington State College (not called a University until 1959) in 1932. Grampa helped build the Grand Coulee Dam, then helped protect it during WWII. His family had journeyed from Montana in the 1920s. Generations of relatives have lived, loved and died around Washington state ever since.
It's a great place to live! Just don't move here, it's getting crowded. [smile]

No matter what time of year, my garden needs a little attention and I value the stress relief.
If the NFL is on, I'm watching, either scouting for my Fantasy team or rooting on the Seahawks.
I never seem to make as much time as I should, yet always enjoy myself whenever I do.
Real-time or Turn-based, I often enjoy Strategic PC/Console games for a challenge.
I love my home and the neighborhood it resides in. I enjoy attending HOA meetings. No, really.
Mostly I use photography to track the ongoing fun experiment that is my garden.
Somehow I became the defacto family genealogist. As time permits, history fascinates.
Sports cards, memoribilia, stamps, magazines & newspapers clog up my closet.
