Lauren Bacall's Pricey Vuitton!

Lauren Bacall was such a lovely and mysterious woman.  She passed away recently and her apartment at the Dakotas in N.Y. went up for sale.  Her antiques and fine art have been auctioned recently.  The Louis Vuitton ensemble luggage with Ms. Bacall's monogrammed initials went for $37,5000.  Wow, that's traveling in style.  Photos on Lonny.

Thanks for viewing...

'Bottle Shock" with '70's Flavour

If you've not seen the movie "Bottle Shock" starring Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman, Chris Pine and Dennis Farina, then check it out on Netflix.  It's all about the emerging Napa Valley Wine industry in the '70's and the impact it had on the skeptic French wine sommeliers. The scene above where the blind tasting event was held, reflected Euro vintage vehicles on a rustic farm as if it were set in France (and convincingly pulled off).  However, scenes were shot n the beautiful California Napa Sonoma Valley.

Map Arts

                       Occasionally I've posted unique and creative uses with maps for travel lovers.                                Here's a rose made from a map.  Very cleaver don't you think?

Big Night Movie

A lighthearted movie about two brothers as Italian chefs who run a flailing restaurant. Although filmed in 1996, the setting was the 60's which reminded me of visiting with my Italian family.  There I learned about the routine gatherings where everyone socializes around the much loved meal.  Stanley Tucci and Isabella Rosselini are outstanding in their roles.  Continue to see more of the kitchen, food and movie...
