Appalachian Blog Tapas (You Bring the Wine)

Silver Bridge of Point Pleasant, West Virginia circa 1928

Pour yourself a glass of your favorite beer, or wine, or whiskey, or perhaps even Dr. Enuf, plop your laptop into your lap, and help yourself to an assortment of delicious Tapas - some are sour, some are sweet, others more toothsome, yet others salty, and a few are downright bitter - but together they make for something vibrant.

A native West Virginian, now a NC resident. I read often, but don't think I've commented before; today I had no choice.

I just love you for this.

Wow! I don't know what I'm more excited about: being included on this list or getting the chance to check out all the others who are listed.

Either way, thanks so much.

CountryDew said...

Just like Viagra , generic Viagra online also does not provide protection from any sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. These generic Generic Cialis medicines come in tablets of 25mg, 50mg, and 100mg.
