I live along the peninsula and will be heading up to napa this weekend to golf and go to a napa valley high school sports booster club dinner on Saturday night... I would recommend both of those things
Anyway, although I side with many of the people who would have advised you to go elsewhere because of cost, it sounds as though you are already locked in on napa valley. I personally enjoy the grounds at Rombauer and Buena Vista to be the most asthetically pleasing. My favorite tasting of all time was at a very very tiny place called frias family vineyard simply because the grounds were beautiful and the staff was fantastic, unfortunately, I believe it was a tasting by appointment only, but it might be worth looking into. I would highly recommend that you stay away from the wine train if that is even on your radar. Also, although I enjoy the wine at duckhorn, I have found the employees to be on the stuffier side.
I highly recommend that you go to Vi Sattui and at least try the Madiera, I always pick up a bottle or 4 when we head up to napa. Also, I know it was mentioned in this thread, the employees at vi sattui frown on outside food and drink, so don't try to drag over a delicious lunch from Dean and DeLuca's across the street. If you're an old fashioned/manhattan guy, I highly recommend you pick up a bottle of Eva vermouth at Dean and DeLuca's as I believe it is the stuff used at Zingermann's (according to a friend) and I have yet to find it anywhere else.
Ad Hoc is a great spot, and some other locals we ran into last time also mentioned brunch at Mustard's. I have heard great things about Bouchon as well, but I've never been there and it would definitely be on the pricier side.

gordie bell had a little write up back in Feb., on Josh Jackson. I have been waiting to hear more about Mr. Jackson since then.

States that this is our second camp offer. Who received the other one?

I think a small block M in blue on one and maize on the other would look great in any of several locations. Simple and clean.

To me he looks like he could develop into a future Withey or Zeller, and yes both of them were very lean. He may lack a polished back to the basket game, but he's still a high schooler. You can question his competition all you want, the athleticism, timing, and skill are there.

mouthing "WOW" is the best part of this entire clip

Going to Tahoe with some friends (probably drinking excessively too)
Yes, very much. Although the only place I've ever gone in Michigan is to the pigeon river (most of my time is spent packing out west.)
Yes, I know one particular blogger but I'm sure that I actually know more of you in real life
Straight up, although I did live off of grilled cheese with hummus and avocado for several months in college.

In Ann Arbor for 3 years straight (I think) in the early 2000s performing at the Michigan Theater. Those were the good days, before his freak out.

It's to become a yoga instructing goat farmer like Giovanni Carmazzi... That's what all the greats do.

I don't think that anyone believes that the judicial system is useless and that being charged equals guilt. On rare occasions the general public disagrees with a trial verdict (OJ trial) and feels as though the defendant actually committed a crime, despite being found not guilty.
I don't know whether or not Ray Lewis stabbed those men to death, but I am pretty sure he had some role those murders.
That being said, he's definitely going to be in the HOF

I stand corrected

Is this website referenced by the Green family TTB? One could agrue that if he spent hours working on a perceived weaknesses in his offtime TTB is actually improving our recruiting classes.

There was a related link on the left hand side of that opinion piece.

Sounds like Phil Jackson needs a last second replacement speaker to fill in for him at a conference in Chicago. Could be a coincidence.http://www.fa-mag.com/fa-news/12863-alan-alda-replacing-phil-jackson-at-schwab-impact-.html
|1 year 39 weeks ago||That's freakish||
Unbelievable, your friend is a robot. He/she only needed 3 semesters at that rate since you only need 120 credits to graduate. Also, I thought the credit load per semester was capped at 21-24 credits (current student weigh in on this.)

Dear Tom Gholston,
There is nothing wrong with your sportsmanship.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Wishing him the best||
I'm wishing him the best, as I'm sure we all are. He is a friends relatives friend (admittedly weak) but I've seen and heard some stuff that cements him in my mind as a great guy. My first year at mich was 02 and I remember him having hands like superglue. He literally caught everything he touched.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||Wait until you move here||
I currently live along the sf peninsula, and finding a place in the city is a nightmare right now. My friends who have recently looked for places have needed to show up with security deposit and credit report in hand. Use Craigslist or whatever, but don't bother inquiring until you're physically able to move into the place
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Bad memories||
Those exams bring back some painful memories. I placed out of calc I, and didn't end up taking calc II or III until I was a senior... One or two aderol enhanced study sessions were required to relearn a lot of the material. I remember hating Taylor series', all current students have my sympathy.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Impressive shot||
I'm not disagreeing with the fact that the shot was impressive, but as benoit balls said, the pull hook makes it A LOT easier to pull off.
Granted, it's under different circumstances, but I would like to see a "blue line on an aerial photo taken from a funny angle" of this shot by tiger: (forgive me for not knowing how to embed) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEQ9jbRkgaw

Played football for us from 88-91, and is now the director of basketball operations at michigan. (Link to bio: http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/m-baskbl/mtt/townsend_brian00.html)
He is also a man of great character. It's good to have him as part of our athletic department.

Ryan Braun tested positive for high levels of testosterone (not HGH, as another poster suggested.) I'm not 100% sure on the MLB testing methods but I would imaging that they used the same methods used in the Floud Landis debacle. That would involve mass spec analysis of carbon isotope ratios which is extremely accurate. If anything I would expect his testosterone levels to decrease overnight (more likely they would remain the same.)
