As I sit and look at the frothy Pacific Ocean today, I think to myself, I need more of this. Yes, it’s another rainy and cold day in the PNW, and I must like it. This week, yes, more on plastics and how bad they are, a great show about wine, the books I read in 2018, and the podcasts on my rotation. Enjoy!

Curious Stories from the Week
♵ “I just want to say one word to you. Just one word. […] Are you listening? […] Plastics. […] There’s a great future in plastics.” From the movie The Graduate starring Dustin Hoffman, plastics have indeed created a great future; from medical uses to everyday convenience. We’ve seen the straw pulled from the Sea Turtle’s nose, but we need to think deeper about this and rethink our dependency on plastic. Is it still worth it?
🍷When you cork that next bottle of wine, watch Somm on Netflix. A fascinating look at the wine industry, the experts, and how California wines hit the center stage.
⛰️Two partners are joining Fast ‘n Curious Offroad this year, Peak Design and GaiaGPS. By buying from these two companies - that I have loved for several years - a percentage of the sales goes to our offroad team to cover costs for several events, pinnacle being the Rebelle Rally. Help us out by grabbing the best camera and travel bag I’ve ever owned from Peak Design. Then go download and subscribe to GaiaGPS for the last GPS system you will ever need. More on both but for now, go check them out.

What’s with the name, Sunday Roast and Stories Mindfully Curated? Sunday is a good day to do a weekly review. A time to take stock in the past week and get ready for the next. Which is always done with a fine coffee beverage, hence the Roast part. Through the week I share articles and stories that mattered in the long-run, not bits that are of pop culture or political. My goal is always to seek information that is as unbiased as possible, interesting, or enriching. In other words, Mindfully Curated for you.
Did you enjoy this issue?
