Also on the show today, before we get to those brief interview segments…. getting through the holidays leading up to New Years Eve…will that special dress still fit! Or for the guys, will your shirt button… button?  Our fitness guru, personal trainer Darrin Robinson of Emerge Lifestyle & Fitness Training will join u and shares his  “3 basic tips/tricks to make sure that it does

1) We will, no matter how painful or arduous, dedicate ourselves to
fulfilling our doctor's orders of having one glass of red wine per day...
Got to keep the ticker healthy!
2) We promise to never drink any wine before its time!
3) Our new found love for hiking will continue with a promise to scale
another peak, another mountain. Macchu Pichu this year, Angels Landing before… whats next?  Mount Everest,Mount Kilimanjaro anyone?
4) YES!!! Yet another reason to continue to enjoy our red wine! Keep the
Pinot Noir coming, one of the top grapes for "resveratrol" composition!

A glass of red will give you about 640 mg of resveratrol. Resveratrol is a
naturally occurring antioxidant found in the skin of red grapes. Research
has shown that resveratrol can reduce or slow down certain signs of aging.

Let's pull a Jack Benny, 39 AGAIN! Fill her up... Actually not quite, leave
enough room to swirl, about 1/6 to 1/4 the volume of the glass, depending on
the size of the glass.Swirl,sniff and savour!
5) Discover a new wine, a new grape or a new region at least once a week and
tweet to our friends.
6) Write a book…

7) Continue to explore organic and biodynamic local wines to help reduce our carbon
8) We love connecting with fellow wine lovers, enthusiasts and wine novices
around the world, our goal is to try to bring the world of wine together,
one person at a time, one tweet at a time, one sip at a time!
9) This year be a part of the annual Beaujolais Race! We’re working on it…
10) And finally for the Top Ten's #1 New Year's Resolution....we promise to
continue to spread our playful approach and wine tasting philosophy to the
most unsuspecting wine aficionado!

Every day presents a new opportunity to be the best we can be, enjoy,
embrace and be challenged. As Oprah says "Cheers to a new year and another
chance for us to get it right". We're with you Oprah, live, learn and live
what you learn!


 So we are getting into the “spirit “ of the holidays in a variety of ways here today…and  we  are so  excited about our first guest who has graciously agreed to take a little time out of his busy acting, writing, comedic, music and “spirited” schedule to join us. 
Oh yes, And who could this be? Well you may know him from Saturday Night Live, or perhaps the Blues Brothers or maybe even Ghostbusters?  Of course this could only be the one and only, our very own Dan Aykroyd! And Dan will be joining us shortly to talk about his “spirit” his premium Crystal Head Vodka and the legend of the 13 heads behind the unique bottle.
 We’ll also chat about what Dan’s up to these days, a Ghostbusters sequel is in the making, plus we’ll also explore another “spiritual” side to Dan, what was his inspiration for Ghostbusters and Dan’s experiences and beliefs in the outer world, including séances and UFO’s!
