I live on Long Island and one of my favorite places is the North Fork. This area is home to many of Long Island's wineries and now's the time to enjoy tasting new vintages. Here's a link to LI's Wine Country.

Memorial Day Weekend - the unofficial start of Summer, but more important, a time to thank and remember those who have served our country. Although, not everyone knows that. Take a look at Paul the Web Guy's interview in NY.
