La Fiera ~ The Carousel: Captivating Theme for the Child Within of The Fair Memories

LA FIERA ~ Abruzzo La Fiera has a wonderful story… Especially if you’re a merry-go-round groupie.

Thanksgiving Wines

I know that this is an American holiday, which was instituted by our European forefathers with the assistance of Native Americans… while things were still copacetic… In the past, I’ve purchased American made wines, just going along with the tradition.
