Tweets from last week

  • Don’t push friends out the door as soon as you pull the dessert plates, allow time for a little chitter chatter.
  • For dinner parties that include wine. Always buy more wine than you think you’ll need. It goes fast.
  • RT @winesisterhood: There will always be someone more talented, but never someone more called. Live according to your calling, not your talent
  • @BanksConrad You are a one man anti-whipped potato force. Yes, roasted or Scalloped spuds are also formidable contenders.

  • It’s a good Monday afternoon to make a Valentine’s day mix cd for all the kinds of the love in your life.
