Blogging from A to Z: B

Wine of the day: Bordeaux (French, mostly red, some white, rose and sparkling {Any wine made in the Bordeaux region.})

Cheese of the day: Brie (French, soft-ripened.)

Fruit of the day: Blueberry (My FAVOURITE fruit! Goes great in a baked brie.)

Movie of the day: "Boondock Saints" (Dark comedy about Irish twins who kill bad guys in Boston. Warnings: language, violence, language, nudity, language. Quote: "Now, we must all fear evil men. But, there is another kind of evil which we must all fear most and that is the indifference of good men!")

Album of the day: "Business Casual" by Chromeo (Electrofunk band from Montreal. They compose really fun dance beats with hilariously satirical lyrics.)

Book of the day: "Between the Bridge and the River" by Craig Ferguson (Same author as yesterday. This time fiction. Brilliant. Quote: "Evil does not question itself, only hope questions itself. Even the incorruptible are corruptible if they cannot accept the possibility of being mistaken. Infallibility is a sin in any man.")

Country of the day: Belize (My dad still refers to this by it's former name: "British Honduras". It has an interesting history which I won't get into here. It is know for it's incredible natural beauty. One day I hope to dive the Great Blue Hole; a large sinkhole just off the coast.) 


  1. Hello, Bonnie! I've always wanted to go to Belize! The pictures I've seen are breathtaking.

    Nice to meet you and happy A to Z!!

  2. Boondock Saints and some Brie....good day indeed!

  3. Your post has allowed me to get to know you, Bonnie...well thought out and researched. Thanks! Enjoy your blogging journey...

  4. Have you ever tried goat or sheep milk Brie? I had a chance to do that at a wine and cheese exhibition in the Convention Center in Berlin many years ago. It was great!

  5. You didn't use the picture of me with the snake in Belize. And blueberries go alright in pie, but saskatoons are much better!

  6. Hi Bonnie, thanks for the post. Blueberry is one of my favourite fruits too!

    This is me, Duncan D. Horne, visiting you from the A-Z challenge, wishing you all the best throughout April and beyond.

  7. Hello there :)

    Passing through on my way down the A-Z list and am happy to have found a fellow brie and blueberry lover. Blueberry pancakes are the ultimate breakfast food, I think.


  8. I'm so glad you chose Bordeaux for the B wine-- it's so lovely. My favourite is the Graves wine, from just west of Bordeaux. It's considered a Grand Bordeaux though. Oh, and I love Brie. And I want to go to Belize someday. :)

  9. NO!!! No diving in sink holes. I love caves but cave diving is a death sentance. I could not handle your death, who would fix my quilt?

  10. Oh, dear, I haven't replied to these comments yet! Shame on me! From the top...

    Laura Marcella, I have always wanted to go, too! I have not been yet. My husband was before we started dating.

    Bonnie Rae, we love Boondock Saints! It's not just for St. Patty's day.

    Jarm Del Boccio, thank you!

    Horst, I have not tried those but a cheese exibition in Berlin sounds amazing!

    Tim, I wanted a picture of Belize, not just you and a snake. :P And this is "B" day, check back on "S" day for Saskatoons.

    Duncan D. Horne, thanks!

    Amanda Heitler, yes, blueberry pancakes are amazing!

    Jenny, I find the Bordeaux classification interesting. We've had some nice ones!

    Wes, it's not a cave, is just straight down. And I do need to come fix your quilt! Remind me in real life...
