The past three months have been insanely busy. First, we moved on the first of September, just a couple of weeks before our vacation to London and Sicily. I dread moving (I know many of you can relate). However, the new place is fantastic and Susie and I are glad we made the decision. We are now trying to get settled in. I have to find a new spot to shoot my YouTube episodes. I loved my studio in the other place, but that is no more. As a result, I haven’t put out any content for a few months….It’s time to start up again.

Our trip to London and Italy was phenomenal. I will say again and again that I am thankful to be married to someone great to travel with. Susie is an awesome trip planner and we had an awesome time. London was packed with action. We went to a play, a jazz club and a party at one of Susie’s friend’s place, all in the span of five days. Two nights were close to midnight before we landed at our home away from home in London, where we stayed with Susie’s best friend (I like her a lot too). On our last day there, we went to a very nice brunch in the heart of London. After saying our goodbyes, we went to Maidenhead, closer to Heathrow Airport, to spend a little time with Susie’s sister and niece. It was nice to see them again. Then, it was off to Sicily, a place Susie and I had never been to; we were excited.

Sicily will be the subject of my next Bits & Bobs. I will mention that one grape caught my attention while we were in Sicily. It will be the focus of my next YouTube episode, which I hope to get out there this week. I think I will have to shoot it in the barn or our living room. Weather permitting, I will record it outside. I will have a spot to set up a studio in about three weeks. In the meantime, I will do what I have to do. Going this long without putting content out there on my channel is very frustrating.

The aforementioned grape caught my attention, because of its variation in flavor profile each time I ordered it at a restaurant. It’s a grape I am quite familiar with, but I guess I never had so many different ones in such a short span of time that I noticed that about it. I will hold you in suspense until I get that episode out there.
