Saturday Night Dump – The Rooster Crows at 4AM

Post to Twitter Post to Digg Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Post to StumbleUpon

This week on Top Sites Tuesday we had an awesome time! Many bloggers participated and it was awesome to see how everyone has a different favorite Holiday Song! The Rooster Crows at 4am was the winner of Top Sites Tuesday and tonight gets Dumped on BlogDumps!

Dave aka Bonehead, the author of The Rooster Crows at 4AM, is an awesome blogger! He writes:

Quit the Rat Race and retired to the edge of the jungle in the Philippines. Grew up in small central Illinois town of Mt.Olive, worked in Springfield, Il and previously lived in Auburn, Il before making the big move to the Philippines. Talk about a radical lifestyle change! Taking pontoon boats off the Guimaras Strait to nearby Iloilo City to do shopping instead of driving my Chevy Colorado down I-55, and bathing with ice cold buckets of water over my head, no heated water tanks here, dodging lizard poop as we sleep at night under mosquito nets. Every day is an adventure, and that’s what my blog “The Rooster Crows at 4am!” tries to relate in a humorous fashion.

And he is so humorous! Anyone who calls his wife The Sainted Patient Wife and her mother The Feared Giant Lizard Killer is a hoot!

I really like to read about the pay scale differences. I find it truly interesting that a carpenter would only make $5.50 a day! Here in the US, that’s below the minimum wage hourly rate!

It is awesome to read about the Philippines. I think it’s such an interesting place and I love to read the random postings and see the pictures!

Normally I don’t post on Wednesday, but I just had to slip this one in!

I know last Sunday we had mentioned that we were in Virginia for the turning of the leaves – it was great by the way 🙂 And Irene had to climb a mountain I’ll save that for another blog post.. LOL

It was our third trip to this area. This last time was not really to do the winery thing but Sunday when we decided to come home, we thought about this great place we had stopped at on the first trip, BlueMont Winery. It’s a family owned and run operation, from what I am to understand, and they are good at what they do! Out of all the wineries we visited, I’d say this one was the best – not only the wine but the layout of the building, the remodeling and bringing it up to speed to make it what it is today. Bluemont is a wonderful place to sit out on the deck at a table and take in the gorgeous views while having a glass (or two) of some of their awesome wine 🙂

Ok. Stop it AngelBaby. I am not a wino…LOL I just like the good stuff… hehehe 🙂 and that is what you will find at Bluemont Winery. And no, Maat, that’s not what happened in the recliner! LOL

I took a couple of photos so you could get an idea of what I am saying about the views, totally awesome!

If you are in the area you should definitely stop in – you will be glad you did. The owner and staff were great the young lady that waited on us was terrific! We even laughed how we had all done the “Sideways” trip in California *No More Merlot* – You have to see the movie. Then she gave us directions to a mountain trail just up the road that we could climb so Irene would be happy. Irene asked me, “What would be the best photo, Dad?” when we got to the top… I said, “A helicopter picking me up and delivering me to the car!” 🙂

I also liked the way they named the bottles of wine. Each winery has some type of naming thing but being an animal lover I thought theirs was cool… Like the “Goat” is Viognier, a dry white wine aged in the barrel. I had this with some good ‘ole Maryland Blue Crab salad made with fresh spinach when I got home, it was wonderful! I didn’t find one wine on their shelf I did not like! In fact, I just bought one of each! Why try to decide when they are all good?!?!

Here are some of the photos I took of this gem I found in Virginia. If you plan to get married you just might want to take a look at the layout it’s awesome 🙂

Well, I guess it’s hump day and I have a lot of web site work to get done for customers so I am back to the grindstone. I hope you enjoyed this little tour and if you are up that way, make sure to stop in! Here is the link to their site!

Have a great day! I’ll see you at the BlogDumps Thursday news. Oh and Tweet this post please, I think they deserve the attention!

All the best,
