Okay you guys, evidently I'm having a major blonde moment. I was going to start our new thread, Summiteers 2004 - The Sequel, (or something similar) in the new Friends of Cruise Critic forum.

However, I cannot figure out how to start a new thread!!

Therefore, I would like to bestow this honor on Gary. Gary - If you would be so kind as to set us up properly (and perhaps add a nifty icon, as others have done), we sure will appreciate it!

Beau - Great fun reading your review. You and KL have been back about 4 months now, right?! The freshly made waffle cone sounds delicious.

Later....

Yes, thank you, Beau for the explanation. I never thought of the name of the vodka, duh! But, still, it wouldn't have surprised me if the drink had had 3 olives in it. Some chefs/bartenders pride themselves on these "creative" combo's which are just truly awful.

Ha! The stud juice drinking lush....aka: Madam Oink knew what you were referring to Beau. One of my favorite martinis is a dirty martini (olives and olive brine + vodka, preferably Kettle One).

Oh, come now Jill, that can't surprise you!

As for vodka, there was an ad for Ketel One vodka in my one cooking magazine. It said to bring in that ad to the HQ if you were "ever in the neighborhood" for a free taste. Well, joke was on them, because their HQ was in Schiedam, Netherlands, where Garrett spent a great deal of time working.

OMG! I'm so embarrassed. I just read my post from yesterday and noticed a typo....

Ha! The stud juice drinking lush....aka: Madam Oink knew what you were referring to Beau. One of my favorite martinis is a dirty martini (olives and olive brine + vodka, preferably Kettle One).

STUD juice!! LOL! I meant to say SPUD juice.

Kettle One is my favorite spud juice.


BTW - I can never get the quote feature to work right. Obviously, I'm doing something wrong. Can somebody explain, step-by-step, how to do this properly? Thanks!
