Ian stays busy buying collectible wines for high profile clients, planning luxury wine  trips  for  his  audience,  hosting  corporate  events,  and  studying  for  his  Master of Wine.

ABOUT BEEKEEPER CELLARS
Beekeeper Cellars is the vision of best friends and co-winemakers Ian Blackburn and Clay Mauritson. The two collaborated after adventurous individual careers in the wine business, and at last, decided to work together on a project of their own.

Clay, a 7th generation grape grower, and his family found themselves the owners of a significant slice of the Rockpile Appellation, through an amazing set of historical land transactions. The Mauritson family realized the potential and parented the creation of the ROCKPILE AVA. In 1998, Ian and Clay climbed the hill and watched the Madrone Spring Vineyard get planted, while discussing the future of Rockpile and the dream it represented.

In 2008, Clay saw the fruits of his family's labor taking shape and came to Ian with a unique opportunity to source some of the Rockpile fruit. He told Ian in the difficult days of 2008, “now is the time to get in and build the business and have it take shape as the market improves, and to not wait until business is strong as you will have a hard time getting access to the right quality assets.” Ian took heed of Clay’s wise comment and said "When your best friend is Clay Mauritson and he offers Rockpile fruit and to assist with winemaking…... you make Zinfandel.”

In Los Angeles, Ian operates a specialty wine marketing organization known as wineLA and has pioneered wine education for the past 20 years (since 1995) through www.learnaboutwine.com and www.wineLA.com.  Beekeeper Cellars is also involved in Ian’s Masters of Wine Thesis project and provides him the winemaking training he requires to help pass the difficult Masters of Wine exam...an ongoing pursuit.

9/20 DYLAN THURAS, ATLAS OBSCURA: AN EXPLORER’S GUIDE TO THE WORLD’S HIDDEN WONDERS, DANNY LIPFORD, FALL HOME MAINTENANCE TO-DO LIST

DYLAN THURAS – AUTHOR, ATLAS OBSCURA: AN EXPLORER’S GUIDE TO THE WORLD’S HIDDEN WONDERS

ATLAS OBSCURA
AN EXPLORER’S GUIDE TO THE WORLD’S HIDDEN WONDERS

When Joshua Foer, Dylan Thuras, and Ella Morton set out to write ATLAS OBSCURA: An Explorer’s Guide To The World’s Hidden Wonders, their goal was to create a catalog of all the places, people, and things that inspire wonder (after all, when you can buy a plane ticket and be in Borneo in less than a day, the world can feel awfully small). As the team behind AtlasObscura.com, a vibrant online destination focused on discovery, wonder, and exploration, Foer, Thuras, and Morton had access to an unrivalled treasure trove of secrets, mysteries, intrigues, phenomena, and curiosities to pull from.

The extraordinary result is an unprecedented guide combining compelling descriptive writing with arresting full-color photographs, maps, and charts to share over 600 of the most unusual and fascinating bucket-list wonders across all eight continents. But, what exactly is a “wonder”? A wonder is:

  • A musical composition playing continuously in an old lighthouse in London for the next 1,000 years
  • An Amsterdam zoo devoted to creatures (molds, yeast, bacteria, viruses) invisible to the naked eye
  • The Icelandic Elf School, where classes focus on the distinguishing characteristics of Iceland’s 13 varieties of hidden people and include a tour of Reykjav√≠k’s elf habitats
  • Galileo’s severed middle finger, displayed in a goblet accented in gold in Florence, Italy
  • Thousands of synchronized fireflies that inexplicably flash in unison in a cluster of mangrove trees outside Kuala Lumpur.
  • The “Door to Hell”, a fire that has been burning in the Turkmenistan desert for over 45 years
  • A Buddhist temple to the souls of insects that died for science
  • The yearly Escaped Animal Drill in Ueno Zoo, in which staff members dress in animal suits and attempt to storm the gates of the zoo and wreak havoc on the streets of Tokyo
  • A sealed test tube containing Thomas Edison’s last breath
  • An Alabama museum displaying finds from unclaimed airline baggage, including a 3,500-year-old Egyptian burial mask and Hoggle, the dwarf puppet from the 1986 film Labyrinth

Along the way, ATLAS OBSCURA reveals the world’s deepest places, hidden tunnels, greatest self-made castles, notable arbotecture (the art of shaping a living tree in order to create art or furniture), giant Buddha statues, epic film sets you can visit, murder houses, dinosaur parks, lake monsters of the USA, historical methods of preventing premature burial, a guide to psychotropic drugs used to enhance religious experience, abandoned nuclear power plants, and much, much more.

Each entry for the astonishing sites in ATLAS OBSCURA includes location information, GPS coordinates, and tips on when and how best to get there—and how much to bribe the guard to get you inside. An arresting cabinet of curiosities that inspires wonderlust as much as wanderlust, ATLAS OBSCURA proves that the world is vast and there are marvelous treasures behind every corner—if you just know where to look.

ABOUT DYLAN THURAS:
DYLAN THURAS is the cofounder and creative director of AtlasObscura.com. Dylan has spoken at conferences, including SXSW and Applied Brilliance, about the changing nature of exploration. Previous projects include ‘Curious Expeditions’ about travelling in Eastern Europe for a year, the meeting of the Athanasius Kircher Society, and ‘World of Wonders’ a series of videos and articles for Slate.

9/19 DR. KEN REDCROSS, SAFER OPTIONS FOR PAIN RELIEF, DR. RICHARD FORD, THREATS OF RABIES & HOW TO PROTECT YOUR PETS

DR. KEN REDCROSS - PRICE OF PAIN AND SAFER OPTIONS FOR RELIEF - NATURAL OPTIONS FOR RELIEF AND MAKING  LIFESTYLE CHANGES LIKE WHAT FOODS TO AVOID THAT CAN WORSEN PAIN

SEEKING RELIEF IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES 
What You Need To Know About Pain Relief Options Before Asking Your Doctor For A Prescription   

PAIN: It’s a massive problem that affects 125 million Americans who are spending close to $300 billion on pills, pot, procedures and natural remedies to find relief. These numbers are fueling a national conversation about pain relief and how it should be addressed. Are doctors responsible for the painkiller epidemic or is it the patient’s fault?

Redcross says that pain medication can be an ineffective treatment and frequent use of over-the-counter painkillers can be a slippery slope to addiction. She says pain is your body’s way of alerting you to an underlying problem that needs to be resolved, not masked. Redcross also says there are diet and lifestyle changes as well as natural remedies that can help pain sufferers get relief from some of the three most common pain complaints, and reduce reliance on heavy sedative medication that have potential side effects:

1) Muscle Pain: Tension, stress, overuse and minor injuries are the most common causes of muscle pain. Muscle pain is usually localized, affecting just a few muscles or a small part of your body with some of the most common complaint areas being the neck, back and shoulders. Causes of muscle pain include injuries, poor posture, sitting or standing for too long without movement and repetitive movements or overuse of certain muscles. In addition to pain, many sufferers feel fatigue and have trouble sleeping. A JAMA study reported the diseases with the largest number of years lived with disability in 2010 were low back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders including neck pain. Changes that help relieve muscle pain:

  • Diet Fixes: Eat more foods that can help ease muscle pain like Indian foods that have superpower spice turmeric. If magnesium is low in the body, it can cause muscle aches and pains so be sure to eat plenty of pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, black beans, cashews, almonds, sunflower seeds, cocoa powder, Swiss chard and spinach.  
  • Relief Remedies: A homeopathic medicine derived from Arnica montana (aka mountain daisy) can be taken orally or used topically as a gel or cream for relief of muscle pain and stiffness.  The ingredient found in Arnicare can also relieve swelling and discoloration from bruising.  Unlike menthol rubs, the cream and gel is odorless. 
  • Lifestyle Changes: Warm baths or showers can help relax muscles. Add Epsom salts to a hot bath for an added benefit.   

2) Joint Pain: Damage to the joints from disease or injury can cause pain in the form of  osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, strains, sprains and other injuries. Joint pain can affect any part of your body but knee pain is the most common complaint. In one national study, one-third of all adults reported having joint pain within the past 30 days. Age and injuries increase your risk.  Changes that help relieve joint pain:

  • Diet Fixes: Limit foods that trigger joint pain to reduce inflammation including processed, fried and frozen foods; dairy products; sodas, sugars and refined carbohydrates; and salty foods. 
  • Relief Remedies: Since natural glucosamine levels drop as you age, supplementing with it helps keep the cartilage in joints healthy. Check your vitamin D levels to see if you need to supplement with more D. Research shows that people with low levels of vitamin D may have more joint pain. 
  • Lifestyle Changes: Weight loss is highly effective because every pound you lose equals 4 pounds less pressure on your knees. Some sufferers even see their symptoms disappear if they lose 10-20 pounds. Low-impact exercise also helps reduce pain and can contribute to weight loss. 

3) Head Pain: Pain to the head can come in the form of migraines, tension-type and cluster headaches.  Frequent headaches can affect relationships, employment and put you at risk of depression. Causes of headaches can be a result of fatigue, sleep deprivation, stress, side effects of medications, viral infections, common colds, head injury and dental or sinus issues. About half of all adults have a headache in a given year. Changes that help relieve head pain:

  • Diet Fixes: Avoid foods that increase frequency and severity of headaches including dairy; chocolate; peanut butter; certain fruits, such as avocado, banana, and citrus; onions; meats with nitrates, such as bacon and hot dogs; and foods containing monosodium glutamate (MSG). 
  • Relief Remedies: Feverfew, an herb derived from a bushy aromatic Eurasian plant of the daisy family, with feathery leaves and daisy-like flowers, is frequently used in herbal medicine to treat headaches. Lavender, peppermint and basil oils can work for migraine and tension headache pain.
  • Lifestyle Changes: Massage in general can help, but especially reflexology (massaging reflex points on the hands and feet). Also research shows that a do-it-yourself scalp massage can effectively alleviate migraine pain.

DR. RICHARD FORD, JOINS US TO TALK ABOUT THE THREAT OF RABIES & HOW TO HELP PROTECT YOUR PETS
