Wine: Thinking Forward

A lot of innovation has been happening in the wine industry proving that the beverage has come a long way from being a drink of the upper crust, consumed by the most refined crowds.

Super Bowl XLV Sets a Standard

Gone are the days of unique Super Bowl logos customized to represent the year and host city. After 45 years, the Super Bowl will now have the same standard look to its logo each year.

Watching the Super Bowl Was Inspiring in Another Way

The contemporary art in Cowboys Stadium is amazing. It reminded me that the sport arenas of our past contained art. Why not a football stadium? What a great way to express energy and excitement!
