The super enthusiastic, female proprietor and winemaker, of my favorite, 135 year-old, Spanish wine producer, Maria Jose Lopez de Heredia

Missed our Duero to Rioja event with Maria López de Heredia last week? Listen to what she has to say about her family’s famous bottlings of white and red Rioja, including the 1991 Viña Bosconia Rioja Gran Reserva, 2003 Viña Bosconia Rioja Reserva, and 2001 Viña Tondonia Rioja Reserva.

Dutch Domino’s Electric Scooters Say ‘Vroom’ and ‘Pizza’

Domino’s in the Netherlands thought they’d go ahead and be all green and whatever by buying a bunch of electric pizza delivery scooters, but then it turned out the things were totally silent when running and were dangerous for pedestrians and bikers. Way to save the environment, guys. Anyway, their solution to the problem was to record a guy saying things like “vroom” and “pizza” and “lekker” (Dutch for yummy) and “Dominos Dominos Dominos” and play the audio as the scooter tooled around town. Watch as the so-called Safe Sound scooter surprises unsuspecting Dutch bikers.

…great wines come from islands…. uhh, and mountains….

Saw this picture on imgur and just had to post it here, because this is without a doubt, one of the most badass women alive. Meet Katrina Hodge, a corporal in the British Army and Miss England 2009. According to Wikipedia, she enlisted back in 2004 after her brother challenged her to and earned the nickname “Combat Barbie” after showing up at her assigned unit wearing false eyelashes, kitten heels (whatever those are) and carry a pink suitcase. In 2005 her unit, the Royal Anglian Regiment, was deployed to Iraq, where she saved the lives of her comrades from a prisoner by wrestling not one, but two rifles from him and then knocking his ass out with her bare hands.
With her bare hands.
Then in 2009, she decided to compete in the Miss England competition to destroy stereotypes about women in the military. She didn’t win (she placed runner-up), but still became Miss England after the woman who did got into a fight and gave up the crown. While Miss England, Hodge convinced the people running the competition to ditch the bikini contest, because she felt that it was more important to be a role model than looking good in a bikini.
In 2010, she handed over the crown and returned to military service, being deployed to Afghanistan.
This woman is both a BAMF and a HBIC. Damn.
