July 2023 Month-in-Review

July was an incredibly sad month as my best friend and companion Leo passed away suddenly. He woke up breathing odd on a Wednesday... we rushed him to OSU emergency... and he coded and passed on Thursday. He was only 7 1/2. Our hearts are broken. As you can imagine, the website wasn't a priority during this time and we're still struggling coming to terms how Leo could have been perfectly healthy on a Tuesday (he recently helped me train for a half-marathon) and taken from us on a Thursday. 

I could write forever how much he meant to us and how wonderful he was. In honor of Leo, I am collecting donations for the CHA Animal Shelter and I'll be matching every donation at 100%. I would like to thank my readers for their grace in knowing that the volume of articles was scaled back and your patience as I get back into it.

Heaven's Door to Open Distillery in Kentucky

Heaven's Door Spirits has announced plans to open a new distillery in Pleasureville, Kentucky. Additionally, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to write about Heaven's Door without mentioning that the brand was founded by native Minnesotan Bob Dylan (real name Robert Allen Zimmerman). Although this was just announced, the distillery has been under construction since 2017 and has been producing bourbon since 2018.
