Disclosure & Advertisements


My posts and articles are generally positive. When negativity is encounter through products, books, restaurants, hotels, etc., I don’t waste my time giving unwarranted publicity.


I take part in many media trips and often are taken to dinner. I write about what I like and strive to be objective in my evaluations, which reflects in articles featured.


On another note, I do pay for some trips, dinners, products, wine, etc. that I feature. I simply enjoy writing about what I’ve experienced. .


I do have some affiliate ads on my blogs. If someone clicks through and purchases, I receive a nominal amount. My affiliate ads are from companies from which I have experienced good service.


If someone I review favorably ever wants to run an ad, I would be delighted. Monetizing my website, without compromising my integrity, is highly desirable AND ethical.
