Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my blog! My goal here is to get more personal – and simply share stuff with my friends, family, and patients!  You can expect some posts on the latest advances in cosmetic surgery (although it seems like there’ll be a fair amount of music-related posts – they’re too much fun to make!) I also expect that we’ll have more contests and free stuff, special events and even very special guests!

Antiquum Farms – Organic Viticulture

Antiquum Farms - Organic Viticulture This is for all of you who appreciate wine. While visiting my son (who graduated recently from the University of Oregon) in Eugene, we had the pleasure of staying at Antiquum Farms, an organic farm in the Willamette Valley.  Here I am out in the vineyard with owner Stephen Hagen talking about growing grapes without herbicides, and natural methods such as letting the sheep, geese and chickens do the grazing (the animals can clear 6 acres in 10 days!) This organic micro-site specific farming is referred to as grazing based viticulture. According to Stephen: “We use intensive rotational grazing to cycle nutrients from diverse cover crops to the vines.  This intermitant grazing creates cycles of root die-off which release and retain microbial life and organic matter.  Top dressings of consumed cover crops are carried back to the vine roots by these stimulated microbes and other creepy crawleys.  Several years of this practice have lead to a vineyard that needs no fertilizer from outside the farm, creating a unique wine that is truly site specific.” In any case, we really enjoyed our visit and the wine! I hope you find this as interesting as we did! Enjoy, [...]

When You Wish Upon a Star

'When You Wish Upon a Star' is a song written by Leigh Harline with lyrics by Ned Washington (who also wrote the lyrics to 'Stella by Starlight', 'On Green Dolphin Street' and 'The Nearness of You') for Walt Disney's 1940 adaptation of Pinocchio. It won an Academy Award for Best Original Music Score and Best Original Song. The American Film Institute ranked 'When You Wish Upon a Star' seventh in their 100 Greatest Songs in Film History! The piece has also become a jazz standard. It has been performed by artists including Linda Ronstadt, Louis Armstrong, Dave Brubeck Quartet, Glenn Miller, Joe Pass, Wynton Marsalis, Bill Evans, and many others. This is one of those songs that took me several weeks to want to record, because it gave me so much joy to play! This performance is dedicated to Denis R and Therese L. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Dr. Weiss
