A Night at the Opera: National Writers Series' George Packer

My girlfriend and I were already five minutes late to a National Writers Series’ symposium when we tiptoed across an ice-coated parking lot behind the City Opera House.  We snuck through Brew to the Opera House’s Front Street entrance, and—with two will-call tickets in hand—I set out in a polite jog up a long flight of stairs to the Opera House’s second story theater.  Elise casually walked up the steps in tow despite my simultaneously encouraging and exasperated gaze from above.  “I need to…

Vineyard Cuttings For the Taking!

We’ve just wrapped up the winter hand-pruning at our Estate vineyard on Old Mission Peninsula and the vineyards are filled with vine cuttings.  This year is a little more interesting as it was a year that we replaced the old cordon with a new cane to help improve the vines.  The cordon is the thicker part of the vine that lies horizontally along the trellis.  The remaining vine…

watch the northern lights over grand traverse bay

Here's an opportunity of a lifetime for me: the sun is sending us a little northern lights entertainment late tonight or tomorrow. There's been an eruption on the sun's surface sending plasma our way. The plasma will take as much as two days to get here and will cause a geomagnetic storm when it arrives, sending red and green curtains of light across the northern sky. Can you hear the glee as I write? I've never seen them. And I'm going to do my best to see them, plus I have a list of… Continue

Traverse City Light and Power Biomass Plant

There has been a lot of discussion lately about Traverse City Light and Power installing a biomass electrical generation plant. I don't know if this is a good or bad thing. But what does concern me is where are the going to get all the trees to feed this beast. If Cadillac has one already and now they want to build one in Mancelona too. Is there no other options? Well the other day I thought well why don't they use the methane that is just being burnt off at the landfill West of town. I would… Continue
