Those austere events were, at one time, limited to the connoisseurs whose palates were deemed superior in some way, so that they and only they, could determine what wines should be served with what food, in what order, and at what time. Wine drinking rules were set long ago by who knows, and everybody played the game. White wine with white meats and fish. Red wine with red meats. Sweet wines with desserts. Champagnes and sparkling wines appear most often at major celebrations. For instance, the functions sponsored by the Krewe of Wrecks become Bacchanalian delights, simply because chamActually, I have raised the eyebrows of a few waiters in my day, because I order what I like. A glass of Cabernet Sauvignon was once a real no-no to the extent that proper etiquette indicated that the combination of red the world to blow up. On many occasions I have drunk red wine, has not exploded. In fact, I think there has been a loosening of the rigid rules, and one of the best ways to learn whats hot in the world of wine is to go to a wine tasting. There will be two on Quietwater Beach at Jubilee Restaurant, featuring wines from all over the world and the appearance of vineyard owners and winemakers from California. More than a hundred wines will be presented. Just remember, tasting all that good ing and cleansing of the palate. If youre really into it, you can talk about bouquet, clarity, body and a lot of other qualities which wine. The second wine tasting will be on Saturday, October 10 as a feature of the Quincentennial Celebration at Quietwater Beach Boardwalk. Whatever you learn at Jubilee will come in handy at the Columbus Quincentennial tasting. If you are a novice at wine tasting, it is best to put a superior smirk on your face and sip lightly. Dont forget to swish now and then, and be sure you can pronounce names like Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cuvee De Fume, and Piersporter Michelsberg. Words to forget are wine cooler and Boones Farm. If you follow these simple rules, no one will realize that you are just there to enjoy yourself instead of judging the quality of the wines you taste. like, you can buy a bottle or more, usually at a reasonable a wine tasting makes for a joyous afternoon or evening. Ill see you at the Cabernet Sauvignon table. You wont get a complex if you stand by me because I really dont know what I am doing other than having fun.

Well, he never had a single menu on the list including the Sand Dollar item would be too easy. Eventually as many of our original islanders moved away and the island began to change, as suddenly as they began. And many of my menus were lost to Hurricane Ivan. I managed to save a few. By this time, more than a few had become iconic and just the names (not the food) evoke memories galore. Mention the Junkyard and just watch the faces of long time smile. Owned by one of our generous islanders the late Har ry Gowens, without whom our wonderful beach school might not exist. Nearly every islander was given a job there, age nor Fannie ruled the roost.

It was a long time for long and Mel ordered something else from the new menu. I have, do, and most likely will always love Flounders for reasons (besides their delicious food) that are too numerous to mention here. Did I mention our neighbors Dennis and Linda Schutte?

A: It is almost impossible to remove everything about a person from the Internet, but here are some things that will help minimize the amount of information that is out there. Keep in mind that it will be a tedious chore because of the amount of research that could be required. Start by searching for information about yourself, so you will know what others can see. yourself from all social media accounts, shopping accounts, and personal services accounts (removing online access to banks, credit cards, etc). To accomplish that, sign into your account and activate or delete the account. Remove any posts that you might have put on various social media websites. Keep in mind that those posts may have already been copied and may continue to show up in other social media sites. Next, remove yourself from sites that specialize in collecting personal data. Those sites scan the Internet to find your name, address, phone, and people that you may know. They often charge a fee to see that information. To remove your information, contact those companies directly through their support page. Some of the information that is found on the Internet can be removed, but will still remain in you discover that your information still remains visible after you removed it, that is probably the cause. Contact Google directly to request removal from Google's move your email accounts. Do that last because you might need those accounts to receive rewhile doing the tasks above. In most cases, you can sign into your the account. Also, keep in mind that your information may have already been stolen in the past. The data may have been stolen from companies with whom you have done business online, from email accounts, from social media sites, or from the credit reporting agencies. That information often winds up in the "dark web," posted on websites where criminals are allowed to buy your details. That information cannot be erased. There are some services that claim to be successful at removing your identity from the Internet, but you have to give them your information online! Provided by Joe Stukey of the Stukey Group.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Compromising on a matter you feel strongly about not only ends the impasse, but can be a win-win deal for all. Remember: Scorpios do well with change. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) With all the demands you currently have to deal with, accepting the help of family and friends could be the wisest course to take at this time. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Recent upsetting incidents might have left you with a big gap in your self-assurance. Refill it by spending time with those who know how worthy you really are. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A dispute about money needs to be resolved quickly, before it festers into something more serious. Consider asking an impartial colleague to mediate the matter. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A soft approach could be more effective than making a loud demand for the information you need. You might even find yourself with more data than you expected. Jambo (Hello everybody). The cloud? The term is not referring to those days of finding similarities in the clouds to zoo animals. Laying on your back on the lush green grass finding lions, tigers and bears, oh my! Today we are referring to data storage in a server farm, I guess on another planet. I have been catapulted into the new century and am not currently destroying forests of trees. Dropbox, and Apple iCloud are now my new best friends. I have recycled dumpsters full of paper and notebooks that are no longer relevant. It is all in the cloud. My practical application happened several weeks ago. I was traveling and forgot my extra pair of glasses. It seems in the middle of the night, in the unfamiliar hotel room, I dropped my glasses. In the wee hours of the morning my feet made contact with my glasses. Fortunately, glasses are not made of pure glass anymore. Yikes! What a mess, and I could not see. Trying not to be too representative of a famous Hollywood star in her prescription sunglasses me, myself and I sauntered into the local eyeglass store. Luckily, I had taken a picture of my eye correction script after my last optometrist visit in Pensacola. Voil! I was able to show them my prescription and within a few hours I rocked it with my regular clear glasses. TIP: Nails! 1. Submerge your hands in a hydrating moisture lotion bath. After the damage has been done during the summer and constant gel manicures, it is recommended to soak your hands in a bowl of Moisture Nourishing Body Wash. It contains glycerin, sunflower seed oil, and soy bean oil, so its incredibly hydrating. Take a small container and carry it with you to wash your hands so you dont use the drying soaps in public bathrooms. 2. Apply cuticle oil or cream. A lot of us make the mistake of applying one coat of cuticle cream or gel after our manicure and never following up again. Try getting in the habit of applying cuticle oil daily in the evening, regardless of whether youve just painted your nails or removed gel polish. Amazing nail oils can be found at all price points, but two great ones to try include Cuticle Oil Treatment and Cuticle Cream 3. Take a break from gel polish. Whenever possible, try not to get back-to-back gel manicures, especially if youve damaged your nails by peeling off polish. Try a keratin manicure in between gel manicures to put moisture back into the nails. If anybody knows where the sever farm is, I would love to know. Im still convinced it is on Saturn. Try throwing kindness around like confetti. You never know where it will land. ECUA Water Line Project SetEmerald Coast Utilities Authority announced Monday, Sept. 10 as the start date for the Water Line Project. The water line, which supplies the beach, must be relocated as part of the new Three Mile Bridge construction. If all goes as planned, the proposed project timeline begins at 4 a.m. when crews will close the water valve. They plan to have the line moved by 7 p.m. and flushing to be complete by 9 p.m. Bacteriological samples are scheduled for 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. the following day.

Even now visitors occasionally say they wish they could be here during a full moon to see hatchlings. It gives us an opportunity to correct the myth and explain where this old wives' tale originated. Long before coastal areas became over-developed, as most are now, people could occasionally witness hatchlings emerge if they happened to be near a nest that hatched during of moonlight on both land and water made it easier to see baby turtles as they raced across the beach to the sea which beckoned them. Conversely, on nights cloaked in heavy cloud cover or during a new moon when the beach was dark, the tiny creatures could easily pass by people undetected, so eventually everyone assumed the event only happened during a full moon. As beaches became substantially altered by development, expanded, people soon learned that hatchings did not correspond with a moon phase. They also discovered that bright artilings into areas where danger awaited in the form of predators, roads, swimming pools, or sheer exhaustion and eventual death from dehydration while trying to As with most things in life, time and education teach us what works and what doesn't. Workshops and word of mouth have spread the word that lights red or amber-colored bulbs help alleviate disorientation, as will out our usual night-monitoring of nests, it is not enough. During overcast nights or new moons, we have found that even amber lights are enough to disorient hatchlings, especially when much of the natural light has been obscured. The most important thing we can do for sea turtles, May through October, is to turn out all lights which aren't essential: garage lights, porch lights, landscape lights, and even interior lights that are near windows. In recent weeks as nests have begun to hatch, we've had numerous hatchling disorientations. We want to recognize and thank Kevin Hayes and his group at Paradise Beach Homes for making the calls to FWC to save a disoriented hatchling discovered near a swimming pool, as well as another we found that day. We also thank Chris Dennis, the assistant GM at Days Inn, and some of their guests from Alabama, who rescued numerous hatchlings from the swimming pool, hot tub and gutters during a heavy rain one night. Please help us by being on the alert for disoriented hatchlings and call FWC's Wildlife Hotline at 1-888-404-3922, or #FWC or *FWC on your smart phone.

Pickens GINS 23 Santa Rosa GINS 17 Total nests 83 As a kid growing up here along the Gulf Coast, I had never heard of an osprey. Now, there is at least one mating pair on almost every body of water in the Pensacola Bay area. Where did this once unknown bird come from? How has it successfully colonized our coastal waterways? The osprey, like many other the DDT story. This miracle pesticide was developed to battle insects attacking food crops but was found to be useful against mosquitos and many other unwanted pests. It was sprayed everywhere using planes, trucks, and tractors. With an extremely long half-life, wherever it landed it was going to be around for a while it can still be found in the sediments of the Pensacola Bay System. It was one of those compounds that an organisms excretory system thus it accumulated within their tissues, and as organisms fed on other organisms, it was passed up the food chain bioaccumulation. Birds of prey who fed on fish would accumulate DDT as well. It caused the shells of their eggs to become thinner so nesting was not successful. of prey that can be found on dead trees and light posts all over the bay area? Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) are members of the family Accipitridae the hawks and eagles. They are predators with hooked bills and sharp talons to grab and dispose of prey. Ospreys can be identified by the hawk like silhouette hovering over a local waterway searching for are usually in pairs and, at times, the young are hovering nearby. Their call is a high pitch chirping sound and if seen on a tree, or on their nest, they are brown on top and white beneath. Ospreys prefer waterways where fish are plentiful. For more successful hunting, they like waters that are relatively shallow and nesting locations that protect the young from mammalian predators. Many local osprey prefer large dead trees for their nests, and will often use manmade structures such as power poles, navigation markers, and special platforms on poles placed there for the purpose of osprey nesting. Our Seahawk The Osprey These birds are monogamous (mating pairs breed for life). During the breeding season, the male will collect sticks for the construction of their large nests. Bringing them back to the female, she will begin to arrange and construct the nest. The male provides lining. There is a pre-courtship dance where the returning male flies over the nest with a fish. The pair produce between 3-4 eggs. Both parents will incubate the eggs but the female does the lions share. She will incubate while the male hunts. Returning a nearby branch to feed while he incubates the eggs though they have seen the males incubate even without feeding the female. After hatching, the male will bring food to both the female and young. She does not leave the young at all for about 14 days. Afterwards, they will be left alone for periods of time, and are mating pair will return to the same location for nesting every year for up to 30 years. There are few predators of osprey due to their nesting habits. In some locations, where they nest on the ground, coyotes have been a problem. Locally, bald eagles are known to try to grab hatchlings and, occasionally, adults. There have been reports of crocodiles taking adults from the water in South Africa; this may be the case in South America as well, but no reports of American Alligators doing the same. This is now a common bird along our shores and is a true conservation success story.
