I'm very excited about this weekend get together. I mentioned it to 3 of my TMX  friends and they jumped at the idea so PM'd CP63 and hopefully we are able to fit on the list. I feel a few cocktails  ;), many laughs and an all round good time coming  :) Roll on August

MJ,  I'll have to ask you in public as I keep mucking up when I try to contact you in your other 'life'.  Could you please bring some skin products for old dry skin ,  for me to purchase.  Also some gift products for me to purchase as gifts for family and friends.  Sorry to intrude into this topic like this but I don't know how else to contact  MJ.

Indeed it is a great list. But I am really concerned about one attendee who wrote this to me.....

" I have booked a ticket and can't wait. But for political reasons and a quiet life I am not writing on the forum that I am coming"

I find this as sad as it is disturbing that someone here on our wonderful independent forum is so frightened of HO that they cannot say they are coming for fear of some retribution. What is that all about?  No doubt it will all come out on the weekend and then what happens.? Do we all have to be complicit in not taking photos or sharing the fun with everybody else because one of us is in fear of losing her job or status or whatever?  

I hate bullying with a passion. Oh wait I have said that before.  What to do?

Did you know that Octopus have very long tentacles? Oh maybe that was another thread.

Wait a minute. I think my skin is older than yours achookwoman. MJ can you bring a bucket of dry old age skin for me?

VHJ great idea about cocktails.
I do make a few liqueurs - Midori, Blue Curacao, Kahlua, Drambuie, Butterscotch Schnapps, Triple Sec, Sambuca and I am sure I will have more by August.
Bring your own mixers and if anyone has any other preferences, just let me know and I'll see what I can do.
I only drink an occasional local red but really enjoy making liqueurs. Do have Rum and Burbon too.

Actually it was you fundj who got me into this after reading your posts on lemoncello. Decided that I could do it, so bought myself a still.

I have a still as well Sue Jen but gave up making liqueurs as I drank them. Now I just make Rum, Burbon, Vodka and Gin.

Love my still but thinking of selling it. I have an air thingy for distilling  after starting out with the water thingy. Good fun.
