SignEdge: An Au Contraire Wine

Wine labels are really a new art form. With so many good to very good wines available at very reasonable prices, vineyards need a way to catch the eye of the prospective buyer.

I suppose a very bright label might spark an interest in one type of customer while a more subtle, but still clever label might attract another personality type.

As for me, I enjoy any wine label that is “different” which brings me to today’s SignEdge label from the Taub Family via the Russian River Valley.


Here is the back label which is somewhat hard to read, but I think you will get the idea that they are proud of David. S. Taub, the company’s founder.


You can read some of the history and story behind the wine at Palm Bay International.

SignEdge: Days of Covid-Confusion

During this time of isolation and social distancing, there is bound to be a bit of confusion, but it is always good to keep in mind that we often had moments of confusion before the Coronavirus…


Some days I amaze myself. Other days I look everywhere for my keys and find them in my hands.

SignEdge: Orders vs. Suggestions


I'm sorry, I don't take orders. I barely take suggestions.

When you see someone wearing a T-Shirt with a message, don’t you often wonder about the personality of the person wearing the shirt? Having said that, I do appreciate and enjoy a clever and/or snarky T-Shirt!

SignEdge: Dying for a Cup of Joe?

If you are like me and millions of others, you can’t wait to have your first cup of coffee in the morning. If the truth be told, I often begin to look forward to my morning cup of coffee the night before.

I know that there is an entire science behind branding and naming certain products. I am not so sure, however, that I would want to make this my every-day brand. How about you?


Death Wish Cofffee

All kidding aside, this is probably a great bag of beans. I mean with a name like that wouldn’t it have to be? Notice that this coffee is organically grown.

SignEdge: Off Roading – A Hobby That Eats

I was invited to go off-roading with a new friend. It sounded quite adventurous and exciting and it was something I had never done. After all, going up and down steep hills laden with boulders and mountain streams where no path exists is not an every-day occurrence!

We met up with two other Jeep Rubicon owners and as we pulled out onto the road I noticed the lead vehicle had this on his spare tire cover…

SignEdge: Unisex Bathrooms and Beyond!

Anyone who travels can appreciate the availability of a clean and orderly bathroom when one is needed. At the Old Capitol Market in Prescott, AZ we came across a very unique sign indicating the specific genders allowed to use each of their facilities.

SignEdge: Proper Hydration

As we go through life, we must maintain a certain balance. This includes our personal nutrition with appropriate food and liquid choices.

SignEdge: Bloody Mess in Holbrook, AZ

Many towns in the United States and probably around the world have streets with clever names. A few that come to mind quickly from my area of the globe, i.e. Cave Creek, AZ are …


Ho Hum Road

and


Lucky Land

While Ho Hum, Easy and Lucky are “cute” and unusual names for streets and roads, on a recent trip to the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert National Park we witnessed something less cute, but just as interesting in Holbrook, AZ. Low and behold, there was a street just prior to crossing over the railroad tracks that had a very morbid name.

How the Bucket of Blood St. received its name is not that clear. There are a couple of theories on the Internet. The most popular explanation perhaps, dates back to the late 1800s when Holbrook was a rough and tumble gunslinging town with gambling, prostitution and lots of violence.

Apparently Terril’s Cottage Saloon played host to a tremendous gunfight after which the floor was so covered with blood that it nearly filled a bucket. From that point forward the emporium became known as the Bucket of Blood Saloon.

The saloon survived as Route 66 became a popular thoroughfare and it eventually evolved into a roadside attraction in the 20th century. The saloon no longer exists, but the street name serves as a reminder of Holbrook’s notorious past.
