  28. I loved this article, Shiju. You are really quite the foodie. My favorite line, though, was "enjoying a glass of wine is like holding a story by the stem"...I second that. I have definitely been making the most of my time back in northern CA. Staying with my son, Alex, and his wife, and babysitting but they are in the Sacramento areas with several wineries within 15 miles - they, in fact, got married at a winery. Decent wines, at affordable prices, are even available at supermarkets. That is one thing I always miss in India so I am going to indulge while I'm home.
