This Month’s Publishers Notes

By Bob Tagert Another year draws to a close. It doesn’t seem possible that we have been publishing this magazine for almost 31 years…seems like just yesterday we were pulling the first issue together in Dave Underwood’s dining room.

Publisher’s Notes

By Bob Tagert As I write this we are bracing for the last rain storm of September. I am sure that we are all tired of the rain, but none more so than our Virginia winery friends. As they are getting ready to celebrate Virginia Wine Month, the wineries are hopeful that October will bring […]

Publisher’s Notes

By Bob Tagert The days are getting shorter and less humid. It is a good time to take a road trip. This month we returned to one of our favorite places from years ago…Galesville and Deale Maryland and our favorite waterfront dining spots. The places we used to visit are a little more modern but […]

Publisher’s Notes February 2018

A friend of mine, George Brown, recently posted on his face book page, “Have you ever noticed that all the tv channels have commercials at the exact same time??? You cannot escape them.
