The After Christmas Market 2014

My wife claims that my blog has gone the way of electric avenue with focus strictly on electric mobility.

If you plan a church wedding in Poland, which is what Ania and I are planning, you must first take Catholic marriage classes. Period. No way around it, a certificate of completion is one of three documents required to say our “I do’s” come this October. And that is exactly how we spent our last…

Czech Wine Goodness

You already knew that Czech beers are tasty. You might even know that Budweiser was Czech way before the “Whassup” commercials made their rounds in the States. But did you know that Poland’s southern neighbors make great wine as well? To read all about my Wine of the Month review of Moravian Pinot Noir click…
