Along with its pre-loaded city map data for the continental U.S., Hawaii and Puerto Rico, the Garmin nuvi 200 GPS unit includes some five million points of interest. That would seem pretty comprehensive. But we've managed to locate a few more that the Garmin people overlooked. Luckily, the nuvi 200 lets us input our own POI's, so here are the fascinating locales we'll be adding:
Western Turnpike & Interstate 88, Duanesburg, NY: we won't spoil it for you, but you've got to see the graffiti under this overpass. We didn't know spray-paint art could be so, shall we say, anatomically correct.
105 20th St S, Birmingham, AL: the guy who works the overnight shift at this copy store will totally let you make free copies if you smoke him out in the parking lot.
W Green Tree Rd. & N Port Washington Rd., Milwaukee, WI: The southwest corner of this intersection was once the site of a Burger Chef where a certain student from nearby Nicolet High School worked the Saturday and Sunday lunch rush for several months in 1976 and 1977. That student's name? Brian Kaelin. You may know him better as Kato.
1019 Auburn Way S., Auburn, WA: we think we saw that kid who played Boxey on Battlestar: Galactica getting a key made here. Seemed like a nice guy.
S Kingshighway Blvd & Oleatha Ave, St Louis, MO: where we totaled our '94 Toyota Corolla. We don't care what the police report says - that semi did NOT have its turn signal on.
326 Applerouth Ln, Key West, FL: every morning for 34 years, the lady who lives here has left a bowl of Frosted Mini-Wheats on her porch, to feed the feral roosters who roam the island. The ritual now attracts tourists from as far away as Key Largo.

Digits everywhere tremble in terror at the sight of the fearsome Unicorn Legion! Armed with single-horned helmets and the power of fire, they wont stop until they've hunted down and nullified every wayward zero! It may seem like they're working for the RIAA, but make no mistake: their allegiance is to themselves and their binary code of honor. Maybe all those '80s anti-drug commercials were right when they told you not to be a zero.

(2) Saxon Brown 2004 Syrah, Parmelee-Hill "Camp Block" Sonoma Valley
Description: (click show to see it)
Can you really put a price on a person's soul? Maybe if you're the
Devil, but we're assuming you aren't. Can you really tally up the
(figurative) sweat and tears and passion and hope that go into a bottle
of wine, and put a dollar figure on that amount? Well, of course you
can. There has to be some number on the price tag for this superlative Syrah. But what
means a mere number?
Saxon Brown owner/winemaker Jeff
Gaffner's spirit won't fit in your spreadsheet. Your calculator can't
tell you anything meaningful about his Saxon Brown 2004 Syrah,
Parmelee-Hill "Camp Block" Sonoma Valley. Saxon Brown doesn't emphasize
gentle handling, slow fermentations, and lengthy aging because some
accountant told them do - they do it because they're winemakers, and
that's the way to make wine. No offense meant to accountants, of
course. But nobody pairs their filet mignon with a really good Form 8-K.
by Steve and Gwen Hill in the red loam of the Camp Block parcel of
Parmelee-Hill vineyard in Sonoma Valley, these Syrah grapes knew
nothing of balance sheets and accounts payable. And you'll forget all
about such mundanities when you get a load of their dense color and
catch a whiff of their lively aromatics. A scent-stew of violets, black
cherry, mocha, cigar tobacco, brown spice, and refined oak carry
through to the rich, well-structured palate. The resplendent finish is
like a long nap on a satin pillow full of duckling down. Money? What's
So this two-pack runs a little higher than the usual
Wine.Woot offering. Big deal. Would you really rather have an extra
five or ten bucks than the transcendent experience of this Saxon Brown
2004 Syrah? Believe us, Jeff Gaffner put a lot more than fifty bucks'
worth of love and craft and obsessive detail into these two bottles.
Buy it or don't - but don't decide based on trivial fiduciary concerns.
Just this once, let your soul have the credit card.
2004 Syrah, Parmelee-Hill "Camp Block" Sonoma Valley
Planted in 1996 in south west Sonoma Valley, is owned and farmed by
Steve Hill and his wife Gwen. This is the same Steve Hill who manages
the famed Durell Vineyard, right next door. The fruit for this
block-designate wine is from the Camp Block, a 1.5 acre parcel that
sits on the edge of a hill near the family's camp site. Here, the
Durell selection is planted on S04 Rootstock in clay loam (red/brown) soils.
As with all Saxon Brown wines, we emphasize gentle handling and slow
fermentations followed by lengthy aging to promote wines of elegance
and longevity. We harvested our Parmelee-Hill "Camp Block" Syrah at
about 25.5 Brix in the cool early morning hours. The must was cold
soaked/extracted for three days, yeasted with a low rate of yeast "for
slow fermentation" and pressed to barrel after 14 days. The wine was
barreled down cloudy in new and one-year-old French oak barrels. After
completion of malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked off the lees
and returned back to the same barrels for an additional 10 months.
