How clean is clean?

We will be away. The cat will be looked in upon and fed by friends. Our friends, not the cats. I am cleaning the house and wondering how clean it really needs to be...

Now I'm wondering if that was a comma splice ....

Take That!, Cancer.

Two fundraising-to-fight-cancer events this week. The drumathon for starters. (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=132334113464910&ref=mf) A valiant quest by Steve Gaul. This will go on all week. I write an exam on Saturday and then the week will wrap up on Sunday with the The Rino Invitational. "The Rino" was the nickname of my late father-in-law Ken Rine. Ken's passion in life was golf and a golf tournament was a natural choice.

Sloppy Joe

An excellent thirst quencher. Looks like pink lemonade.

juice of half a lime
dashes triple sec
dash grenadine
3/4 oz dry vermouth
3/4 oz white rum

from American Bar by Charles Schumann

Sloppy Joe

This post is one in an erratic and unplanned series in my lackadaisical effort to make most of the drinks (or most of the drinks that pique my interest) in Charles Schumann's American Bar.

New laptop

I knew the old lappy was slow, but I didn't realise just how slow... The new laptop is great! This is me mini-blogging on blogger.
