I like a good glass of wine. It is one of my little pleasures. Recently my local wine store did send me a mailing with Cycles Gladiator wine on sale. I normally get a lot of these in my mailbox and hardly take a look at them. This time was different as the reason the wine was on sale was that Cycles Gladiator was banned from restaurants and retail establishments in Alabama. Why? The Alabama Beverage Control Board has deemed the wine brand label as “pornographic”.

Focus on the positive

We are overwhelmed with information: People we meet, tasks we have to perform or possible dangerous situations. Our minds are constantly filtering this based on the way our parents raised us, the country we live in, our education, our friends and past experiences. In other words, we behave the way our minds are programmed: our conditioning.
