Our Journey...

Whole Foods web site blog and Organic Peanut butter

Hey, there is a blog on the Whole Foods web site up today about organic peanutbutter. It also has a picture of a real hunk of a guy. The really good looking one on the right. That one is My Honey. The other two are sons. They are poseing in front of a big pile of peanuts that have been dug up and set to dry in the West Texas sun. The peanuts are about to be thrashed by the combine that is behind them to separate the peanuts in the shells from the vine trash. Then the peanuts still have to be sent to the peanut plant and dried some more, shelled, roasted, salted, ground up, or whatever they need before they are really ready to eat.

LYSO Spring Concert 2010

Yes, it is almost here – the 2010 Lubbock Youth Symphony Orchestra concert featuring Griff Kimball on the marimba as a guest soloist!

There will be six Bingham children playing, two Binghams pushing around chairs and children to get them all in place, one Bingham momma taking picture throughout the concert, and one Poppa Bingham with his buttons popping off with pride.

Here is the link to the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra Site with more information of the LYSO concert.

Of course the big people (Lubbock Symphony Orchestra) are having a concert this Friday and Saturday nights that you might be interested in also. Corey Cerovsek will be playing violin as a guest artist. I got to hear him play a little this afternoon and he is fabulous. I can’t wait to hear the concert myself.

Blessings, Betty

Landon Winery Tempranillo 2008

There are new wines to show you! I really like doing this, but well – well I have lots of things to do, and even if one of my favorite things to do is running down to wineries and tasting the wine that they have made with our grapes  – well I just don’t get to do that very often. But here is one I really need to show you.

Landon Winery Tempranillo 2008

These photos will seem very strange to my friends who have seen my backyard lately. Everything is currently dead as a door nail. I was going to show you a picture, but you really don’t want to see a picture. But these pictures were taken last summer when we received a preview bottle of Landon Wineries 2008 Tempranillo. But now it is really, really ready.
Russ Kane has an interesting review of this wine at his site here. Here is a really cool YouTube movie of the harvest and wine making process in action from Landon Winery that I found on Russ’s site. I can hear My Honey in the background at the beginning of the video. If you are interested in Texas wine, you really should check up frequently on Russ’s blog because he has great updates on whatever is going on with Texas wine. I think he gets out of the house a little more freqently than I do.

Landon Winery

I am about to put up a post about a wine made by Landon Winerythat they made with our Texas grapes, but between start and finish of that note, we got to visit Landon Winery in the historic downtown of McKinney, Texas. They also have a new location in historic downtown Greenville, Texas. If you go to their web site, there is a cool picture looking down from above on their winery. Here is the picture I took. Notice the line of people crossing the crosswalk to go to their winery. That’s just “us.” We had quite a few in our group that day.
