After a two-year visit to the United States, Michelangelo’s Â David is returning to Italy …
When our travel Club goes to Florence, Italy next October I’m looking forward to seeing this. :)
Today, I “accidentally”Â met Barbara S. Hancock, the Associate Attorney for the NYS Law Revision Commission, in Cazenovia. On September 2, 2008(my birthday, plus 54 years), they just finished doing a Preliminary Report to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law Study. Barbara is one of two Staff members who suggest revisions to all the States laws. I told her how the law prevents me from doing wine tasting at the Farmer’s Market (even though I do); the State Fair Grounds; all Wine Festivals, including the famous Finger Lakes Wine Festival in Watkins Glen; all because my wine is not made from NYS grown grapes. Anyway, if you want to see the Preliminary findings, go to www.lawrevision.state.ny.us.
Barbara S. Hancock is an Associate Attorney with the Law Revision Commission. She is also Of Counsel to the trusts and estates and elder law firm of Jones & Wilcenski PLLC in Clifton Park, and an Adjunct Professor of Law at Albany Law School.
Ms. Hancock is a member of the American Bar Association’s Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section and the New York State Bar Association’s Elder Law and Trusts and Estates Sections. She is a graduate of Albany Law School, where she received the Sandman Fellowship in Aging Law and Policy and served as Managing Editor for Production and Note and Comment Editor for the Albany Law School Journal of Science and Technology.

The captain recently chaperoned a carload of thirsty girls from Lakeland Winery to the Finger Lake Region of Seneca Lake for a day of fun and laughter. We visited eight different wineries and mostly enjoyed drinking their award winning wines. The most fun was at the party house of Hazlet Winery, followed closely by the hilarious stories told by the owners of Silver Springs Winery. Leidenfrost Vineyards had the least favorite wines. The most showy building award goes to Ventosa Winery (the wines were so-so). We had so much fun goofing around that I have decided to take another trip down the other side (West) of Seneca Lake next month.
