Today is Super Bowl LV (or 55 if you’re not fluent in Roman numerals). 

It can’t have escaped most people’s notice that in English, LV looks a lot like LIVE.

And the LV Super Bowl Trophy certainly emphasizes this connection:


Many who lived to see the Super Bowl in 2020 live no longer and will miss LV. Read more…

My Saturn Return Birthday– shared with Burning Man founder Larry Harvey and WordPress founder Matt

January 11, 2021

By Leslie Wongo Rinchen

“Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else,” says Margaret Mead.

Today January 11 is my birthday. It seems like it and I should be unique but it’s not. 

January 11 is also the birth date of Larry Harvey, founder of Burning Man. Going to Burning Man back in 1992 and returning 20 times since has had a huge influence on me and how I move in the world. It connected me with other like minded creative people and it connected me with my own creativity.

January 11 is also the birth date of Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress, Read more…

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: 11 Wines in a Wine Fridge

January 4, 2021

Clos des Amis’s “Chambang” is a very special, very small production sparkling wine from Ventura County, CA where I live. I’ve helped prune these vines, picked these grapes, helped with dosage, and bottled them!

Today January 4 is the eleventh day of Christmas, and it is the day to celebrate St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American saint, who lived in the 18th and 19th centuries. Previously, it was the feast of Saint Simon Stylites who somehow lived on a small platform on the top of a pillar for 37 years! 

Also on the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me:

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: 9 cheeses in a cheese grotto

January 2, 2021

9 cheeses to pair with Pinot Noir

Today is January 2, the day after New Year’s Day, and the day that the Catholic Church recognizes St. Basil the Great and St. Gregory Nazianzen, both 4th century Christians who at one point were friends. Basil’s health was poor, perhaps because of the rigours of his ascetic life, they say; he practiced “strict self-denial as a measure of personal and especially spiritual discipline.”

He clearly should have eaten more cheese and enjoyed more wine as research says that both in moderation are good for you!  Read more…
