Got a haircut yesterday. Had a good time chatting with my hairdresser, Leah. We were talking about different types of vodka. On my blog January 5th it was Whipped Cream Day and I said I needed to find the whipped cream flavored vodka. Georgia in Az said she likes it in orange juice. Leah told me she liked 360 Vodka. So I went to the liquor store in search....
Haven't tried the whipped cream one. Tasted the chocolate egg nog. Good! Contains Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Rum, Brandy, and Blended Whiskey! WOW. I tried the 360 Mandarin Orange. Too sweet for me. So, added straight vodka to it and a little lemon juice. That was GOOD!
Each of the vodkas had a $5 rebate coupon and the egg nog was only $3.95. Such a deal....
Took a run to Grants Pass. Staples sent me several coupons and one for 10% off expired as of today. So got ink for printer, saved 10%, had a coupon for $4 off from recycling ink, and had a $5 coupon. So instead of the ink costing me $38 it was only $26. Whooo hooo.... On my way back home I saw some clouds sitting right down on the mountains and sort of 'flowing' over them... Neat!
I received this from a Wilsonite, Mary (Fancher) Zavala.
It is so worth 3 minutes of your time to watch. It will give you pause, make you smile, drop a tear (if you are like me), and refresh your mind. Thanks Mary. This is wonderful!

English Toffee Day
For the very best English Toffee, go to Cary's in Grants Pass on Union St near the Southgate Cinemas. http://www.carysoforegon.com/
You can mail order it.
My Italian son, Alex, is a food broker and represents this company in Colorado/Az. My friend Dee works there. This really is the finest toffee I have ever tasted.
