“Don’t wait. The time will never be just right”

- Mark Twain



PB on Life’s Peter

The most important things in my life are family, health and happiness.

As I do not use Facebook, Instagram or any other social media platform. I do not share my experiences, unless someone asks. As I travel more, it becomes more and more difficult to remember where I stayed, what I did and what I ate. This holds true for wine, what I watch, products and services that I purchased and of course, my Bernese Mountain dogs.

As a result, it makes sense for me to chronicle many of my thoughts in one place and to share them with people that have similar interests to me.

For example, if I travel to NYC, the first thing I do is research some hotels to find something boutique. The Four Seasons, Ritz and St Regis are fine but how many times can you go there and do that. However, once you find a hotel then it’s key to locate the restaurants that you want to dine at – last thing you want to do is commute 10-20 blocks from the hotel to dinner. So, I researched and documented neighborhoods in NYC, profiled them, listed boutique luxury hotels and the best restaurants to dine in, all in the same neighborhood.

The rest of the site (Food, Red Wine, Berners, What to Watch & Buys & Dies is organized in a very pragmatic approach to be informative and to streamline finding things and getting things done.

Food is dedicated to salads, pasta, chicken, fish and beef.  You will find all you need to know about each, including the best recipes. 

Travel focuses on profiling the cities and neighborhoods in Italy, Manhattan and San Francisco.  Profiles of neighborhoods and cities are provided along with the best hotels to stay at and the best restaurants to dine at. 

Red Wine provides insights into the wine markets of California, Italy and the world.  Information is available to build your wine knowledge, pair wine to food, the economics of the wine industry and songs and movies about wine. 

Berners is a resource for anyone who has or wants a Bernese Mountain Dog.  A profile of Berners, Berner Facts, Berner Health and insight on where to obtain a Berner is listed. 

What to Watch is a listing of the best shows on Netflix, Amazon and movies in theaters are highlighted to avoid surfing and to increase binge watching time.

Buys & Dies showcases watches, the best available back pain management options and household items that are awesome.

Recipes features some of my favorite recipes for meat, chicken, fish, vegetables and desserts.
