It's County Fair week this week and the event is as fun and traditional as ever. While walking through the exhibits, I noticed that at lease two B'gamers had blue ribbons.
Local collector Don Doyle won the blue ribbon for "Collections" by assembling a fun assortment of "early lighting" including candlesticks, a really unusual "candle jack" that looked like a fishing reel and some cool early light sockets and bulbs.
I don't know Joe Vella of B'game, but he won a pair of blue ribbons in the home winemaking competition. One for the Trio Hikers label on the pinot noir he and two buddies made and another for their Primitivo wine. If you know Joe tell him I would love a taste!
