I just got done reading the whole post about the around the world gift exchange. Now I have to get busy and get things collcected up. Who ever get me has a very patient person so You won't see me begging to know who has me. Right just dream on as I love presents just as much as a kid loves a candy store.

Eye

Now if I missed anyone so far, please let me know...k? If you are sending your info via my personal email, please include your screen name so I know who the heck you are...<wink> Also, include in your email if out of the country is going to be a problem for you...This will help me when we pick names...and make it easier for you financially...I think this idea was a good one...If you already sent me your info and want this option, just let me know...k?

As far as a deadline goes to getting in your names for this wacky name exchange <wink>...I'm thinking by mid December...How does that sound? That still gives everyone a month yet to sign up...and before the end of December, I could hand out the names to everyone...Let's see, Granny can have Smile, Eye can have Crops...lmao...hehehe...I'm keeping an eye on you guys...:D

Anyone hear from Rosanna? Does she want to get back in? I know she posted in the last one...There was some newer peeps too that sounded interested, but no info was sent in yet...Round 'em up and send them my way....((HUGS))

I'll have to take your word for that. I can't drink allergic face swells and air way closes and a very bad case of hive to go along with it. So that means I'm always the desinated driver.

Know what you mean. I rarely have a drink anymore either. My face turns beet red and gets hot, and sometimes my chest breaks out in hives. I don't get the breathing problem though. At least not yet. But I did taste a Mojito when I was in Maryland visiting my Aunt and Cousins when we went out to eat, and it was very good.

12-05-2008, 11:20 AM
Hay girls ,I know what you mean about the allergy thing because I have seen "Eye's" .....eyes cross after the first glass of wine, then she sort of talks funny and falls asleep....:eek:.....and guess what....................I got a present all ready and so did Eye...........now it is my turn to play the game................guess what country it came from and who the person was and I will send you a Christmas Card with Nippers picture in it hugging Eye..............:D

for those who wanna know here is how Mojitoes came about and how to make one (or several just to make sure you liked the 1st one :eek:)

History Lesson
The cocktail now known as the Mojito started life with a different name. The 'Draque' was a popular drink among the sugar cane and tobacco plantations in the centre of Cuba for many years. Then in the 19th Century with the appearance of charcoal-filtered rum, the drink was transformed into what we know today as the Mojito and by the 1920s it was fast becoming Cuba's national drink.
So what's in it?
Mainly rum. After all, it does come from Cuba! However, a really great Mojito shouldn't be too strong; the mix of mint, lime and sugar should mellow the taste and give it a real smoothness.

How to Make a Mojito

Three fresh mint sprigs - the best sprigs are slightly 'woody' from old established plants rather that from the young plants where they are 'greener'
Two tablespoons of sugar - white cane sugar, or better yet some sugar cane
One whole lime - lime is best but half a lemon will do
Chilled soda water - it should be really cold, just above freezing point
Ice cubes
A shot of white silver dry rum - Havana Club Anjeo Blanco Silver Dry if you want some real authenticity but Bacardi Carta Blanca works well; however any white rum will do
Method
Place two of the sprigs of mint into a tall glass using a spoon and lightly crush them around the inside of the glass; not too hard though, just enough to release the mint flavours.
Add the sugar and the juice of half a lime. Give it a quick stir and fill the glass with ice.
Next, add the shot of rum (remember the shots are often quite generous in Cuba) then fill to the top with soda water and stir.
Finally, take the last sprig of mint and roughly rip the leaves off, use them as a garnish with a slice of lime to top it off, sit back and enjoy.
yum yum in my tum :D

Girls... None of that is allergies from drinking... It's called Menopause!!! Trust me!!!

Where did I put that glass?

:rolleyes:

It probably does affect Menopause, but my Hotflashes (and red face) go away after a minute or two, but after drinking my face stays red a long time and I don't get hives with menopause! My doctor just gave me a prescription for the hot flashes. It is brand new and not covered by my prescription coverage....eeek (It was expensive!!!!!) I am trying it for one month, my doctor said if she had samples she would give them to me (I am her guinee pig). So if it works and she is willing to supply me with the samples I will continue, other wise I am not paying the price of the drug, it is way too expensive but it is non hormonal which is why she wanted me to try it.

This sounds like it takes a bit to make--sure hope they are as good as everyone says they are. I have to try it--but do I have to use mint sprigs--can we substitute mint flavoring???? Hmmmm--can't wait to try one.
