Wine has been the stipend of civilization, with the oldest winery found in Armenia in 4100 B.C. Spreading from Ancient Egypt to the Mediterranean, wine came to the New World with the conquistadors. It was the French that began cultivating wine in Virginia, ultimately setting the tone for future wineries in America. Wineries did not gain much popularity until Thomas Jefferson, Minister to France at the time, traveled to France and was inspired to open up a winery producing rich wines of his own in Monticello. Virginia today has 276 wineries in every region from the Heart of Appalachia to the Eastern Shore and Northern Virginia. Virginia Wines are borne from grape varieties of relative obscurity in comparison to traditional Wine traditions from the old

National Chili month was established in October to keep us warm, as the weather begins to drastically get cooler. With the smell of spices, meat, and peppers simmering on our kitchen stoves, this dish can be made in so many ways, with so many different ingredients. Packed with protein, fiber, iron, and so much more, contributing to a healthy diet.

The first official bowl of chili can be found in the great, wild American West around the 1700s using local peppers and wild onions. The dish grew in popularity in  San Antonio, Texas with the Cowboys & Pioneers. Soon after, it was established as the “Poor Mans Meal” with the few ingredients it needed. Eventually, Chili could be found having its own stand at the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago for all to

These damages are easily overlooked as the time goes by living in your home. Although, when it comes to selling your home, it
