Fireproof on DVD!

Posted by Smurfette On March - 27 - 2009

Do you remember Mike Seaver in “Growing Pains”, played by Kirk Cameron? I used to love watching that sitcom in the 80’s and Kirk used to be one of my idols!

Kirk’s most recent movie is “Fireproof” and I recently watched it on DVD with a couple of friends. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the movie turned out to be quite good. It has drama, action, and even a bit of comedy. For those of you who are married, this is a must see movie!

BS BrokenHeel 157 heel-less-shoes

Broken heels? Without heels? Need to get ’em fix?

Hmm,… I recommend the ‘Brodway Cobbler’ at 403 Broadway, Milbrae for fixing broken heels, especially if you love your shoes, and it’s a good one.
They did a pretty good job there for a reasonably priced service. Reach them at (650) 692-5155. Another good one to try will be ‘Boat Feet Shoe Repair‘ at 1212 W Hillsdale Blvd, San Mateo, CA 94403. (650) 349-0883.

bevmo-buy-gold-red-wine-cheap-price

I am an oenophile, and enjoy drinking red wines and of course, always enjoy shopping and tasting new wines.

I won’t say that I have a very sophisticated palate in tasting red wine, but I generally find that award-winning wines that have competed in blind tasting competitions would give me some indicator to the quality of the wine.

I found this trick or hack for you to list the Gold Medal wines in BevMo (bookmark this link) and you will be able to sort the wines:

Visit Bevmo here .

  • Gold medal wines
  • Sort the price from Low to High
  • And… now you can get the wine for the best value (so to speak).

FYI, here in San Francisco Bay Area, I have a few wine stores that I enjoy shopping at:

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have other findings to share with other oenophiles!

Disclosure: I love new world wines (Napa Valley) better than old world wines.

Napa Valley in California has long been known for its wine among travelers. These days Napa Valley is quite a popular destination especially among newly-weds, honeymooners, couples as well as food lovers, families, and freinds. Not long ago I discover this Kenwood inn & spa in sonoma county through a friend of mine. I tried staying there on the weekend, oh my it’s just so beautiful, like staying in the Tuscan country side. This place is really romantic, I’m just in love with its setting, architectures, more over they have pretty good gourmet breakfast cook to suit your need and excellent service.
