Wow! Yosemite Never Looked Better

Fri, 16 May 2014 01:30:22 +00002014-05-16T01:30:22Z

I recently discovered a gorgeous Yosemite timelapse video through Petapixel. If it makes you want to head to Yosemite right now, you're not alone. It had the same effect on them - and on me.

New Find in Paso Robles: Justin Winery is - as Goldilocks Would Say - Just Right

Tue, 13 May 2014 01:23:59 +00002014-05-13T01:23:59Z

I mentioned a while back that I was looking forward to visiting Justin Winery in Paso Robles, and it was well worth the anticipation. Justin is one of Paso's oldest and most respected wineries and justifiably so. But you can get a lot more than just a few sips of wine at Justin and I can't say enough about what they call the "Justin Experience." Not only is Justin a winery, but they also have a small B&B called JUST Inn right next to the tasting room, with gorgeous views of the surrounding vineyard. And if that isn't enough, the on-premises restaurant offers as fine a meal as I've had anywhere in California.

What's New at Universal Studios in 2014

Fri, 09 May 2014 00:05:01 +00002014-05-09T00:05:01Z

I just got back from Universal Studios Hollywood and boy, are they busy down there! Tons of construction everywhere and the beginnings of the Wizarding World visible over the construction fences. It's all very exciting, but there's also plenty of good stuff right now. I'd rate the new Despicable Me Minion Madness "C" - but that's not a bad grade like it was in elementary school, it's C for C-U-T-E. So cute we had to ride it twice.

Meteor Storm on Its Way

Tue, 06 May 2014 11:15:29 +00002014-05-06T11:15:29Z

There's a rare meteor storm on its way to California, an impending collision with debris trails from Comet 209P/LINEAR. On May 24, Astronomers say the comet's debris could produce hundreds of meteors per hour and there's a chance it could be more, creating the biggest meteor storm in more than a decade. Coincidentally, that's the same weekend as the StarLight Festival in Big Bear
