Send them your money ASAP

You know how it is. You want to have a nice glass of your favorite hard liquor, but you wish you could soften the edge just a little bit. So you add a dash of water to your fine single malt, and that does open things up quite well. But when you play that trick on your more utilitarian bourbons, gins, rums, whiskeys, or sipping tequilas all you get is watered down booze. So you try the old “on the rocks” gambit and toss in a couple ice cubes. And then mostly works. Mostly. The ice does cool things down, but you have to watch the timing carefully. Sip too soon and you don’t get any cooling. Sip too late and you get a mouthful of booze flavored water. And then you’ve got to match your drinking rate to the ice cube’s melting rate. Which can be dangerous on a summer day! So you have a little Ah Ha moment, and decide to freeze the glasses ahead of time. And this works great, for about 2 or 3 minutes.

There’s got to be a better way.

Yup.

There ya go. The Whiskey Wedge glass and ice mold kit freezes a huge ice cube into its special square style rocks glass, which maximizes chilling while minimizing contact area. Pour a bit, wait a few seconds, then sip it across the ice. Cool. Smooth. And not watered down. The ice is said to last for hours, and you never have to worry about taking a big gulp and having an errant ice cube try to knock your teeth out.

The silicon mold lasts forever and imparts no rubbery taste. It’s got a kind of funnel built right in, so you put it on the glass and pour the water in through it, then freeze them. Pop the mold off when it’s time to have a cold one.

Comes in a set, 1 glass and 1 mold. About $18 - $20, available at Amazon, Wine Enthusiast, and lots of other places.

And it looks pretty cool too.

Kitteh Dreams

Where can you see lions? Only in Kenya!




You should see the magnificent pride of great cats out here on the wide African savannah outside our condo, boldly stalking wild game and heroically striking down elephants, giraffes, giant antelopes, and field mice.

Some of them even brave the weather, living rough in the outdoors like the wild untamed creatures they are. Unless it gets too cold, or it’s dinnertime. Or if a dog should amble by. In which case, siiiigh, they just have to put up with those puny humans for a time and stay indoors.

A Knight Of The Knit

Aww, One For The Birds



image



Oldest guy in Australia, Alfie Date, 109, is woolie penguin jumper knitting champ.

Wool sweaters warm dirty birdies, so oil-spill penguins can stay warm until they get their feathers back right.

After a number of oil spills off Australia’s southeastern coast left penguins in danger, the Penguin Foundation launched its Knits for Nature program and asked volunteers to knit sweaters for penguins.

Oil separates and mats penguins’ feathers, letting cold water seep in and making them cold, distressed and less effective hunters. Sweaters help warm the birds — and prevent them from preening themselves and swallowing the oil — before they’re washed by wildlife rehabilitation workers.

One of the knitters to answer the call for penguin-friendly sweaters was 109-year-old Alfred “Alfie” Date, Australia’s oldest person.

Date has over 80 years of knitting experience. He quickly jumped on board after nurses in his long-term care home asked him if he’d life to help out a few penguins.

“The girls who used to work for me, they’ll tell you I’m a sucker. I can’t say no,” Date told 9stories.

The Penguin Foundation had such a good response to their request for sweaters that it’s no longer asking for contributions, claiming to be adequately stockpiled in anticipation of future oil spills.

“We do not need any further jumpers,” the foundation’s Lauren Jones said.

“We are incredibly grateful for the donations we have received and the time and effort creating them.”

Isn’t that nice? I had no idea these even existed. A wooly penguin jumper sounds like some kind of sicko sex perv, down under or not!

How would you do?

Honestly, I took this little quiz having no idea of the correct responses. I scored 100%. 11/11. On second thought, Boy Scouts taught me basic survival skill. Applicable in all situations. Zombie apocalypse included.

speed test

No, not internet speed.

Brain speed.

Doc sent me a link to a somewhat topical IQ-ish exam. 30 questions, multiple choice. 8 seconds per question. Yikes!

Don’t worry, you’ll score better the second time around. Probably. You will remember the answers geared for the kids though.

Smart or Stoopid. ( I’d tell ya ta click it, but if you can’t figure that one out, sheesh, don’t bother taking the actual test. )

Phooey ... I was hoping for a Wiley E. Coyote trophy. All I got was a brain. And something about 63% of the population.

One For CMB6

Now, That’s A Knife!



image

Storefront of the Grohmann Knife company, Pictou Nova Scotia. Makers of the greatest little hunting knife ever, since 1950 or so.



If you go to Nova Scotia, Grohmann’s is one of those Must Visit places, along with the ship Hector just down the street.
The Hector is a reproduction of the 1750’s cargo ship that brought over the first wave of Scottish immigrants in 1773, 189 of them on a grueling 11 week voyage.
