Forth Winery

Forth Winery, originally uploaded by billaday.

For Preston's 30th birthday, we went wine tasting in the Alexander Valley, and his father-in-law knows the owners of Forth Vineyards, Gerry and Jann. Since it was around the holidays and the tasting room was closed, they invited us into their house for a private tasting. It was incredible--great wine, great hospitality, great company. Happy birthday Preston! Oh yeah, go visit own Forth Vineyards

Zebra Mountain

The Grapevine has been closed intermittently. It was open, but there was snow around. Crazy.

Bird on a wire

I've tried to get away from sunset pictures lately. They look cool, but they're not too challenging. This bird, however, caught my eye. I thought the single bird sitting on a telephone wire looked very cool. There's also the palm trees throughout the shot, which are always interesting to me. I thought of doing a palm tree book once.

Intersection, originally uploaded by billaday.

I still don't like the rain. However, roads like way more interesting when they are wet. And since I rarely see wet roads, it's pretty interesting to me. So I took this photo at a red light. See, there are upsides to just missing a light.

Zebra bells

In my classroom, I ring the bell whenever I need the kids to stop. This particular time, I noticed the reflection in the bell. It looks like a zebra (sort of) to me.

I hate the rain

Rain, rain, go away. Go away forever. I don't like rain. I don't like anything about the rain. You just get wet, and people crash into your car more often.

Name this restaurant. Here's a clue: it represents awesomeness, both in the restaurant, and out the restaurant.
