3rd Anniversary!!

December 24th completes the third full year of exciting Martini and Gin making and overall Martini amusement.  It continues to be great fun writing and I hope you all enjoy my postings as much as I enjoy writing them.

I would like to take a moment and thank my readers.  Your comments and support have been very much appreciated and have helped keep me going on those occasions when I have been a bit less motivated to write.  I really couldn’t have done as much without you.  As always, I solicit your restaurant and Martini reviews, they are ALWAYS welcome here.  Especially Martini Reviews!

Looking back over the year, I have to admit that I seem to have been less prolific than I had hoped.  Especially with my goal of writing gin reviews.  On the other hand I have gone through three iterations of Gin making!  That has been a lot of fun.  Episode four of  my Gin making efforts is on it’s way very soon; coming soon to a blog near you.   (I Made Gin!!Homemade Gin, Round #2 , and Homemade Gin, Round 3  )

Going into the next year I hope to pick up the pace on Gin reviews.  And I do have a couple more Restaurant Reviews already in work and a few planned.   Please forward any restaurant suggestions and will do my very best to review them.

As I did last year, I would also like to take a moment to pat myself on the back …. the “Martini Quotes” page is, I believe, currently the best collection of Martini Quotes anywhere and seems to get the most ‘views’!   If you find a better one, please let me know and I’ll go steal everything I don’t have.   😉

There is also a Martini Jokes page which is constantly expanding.  But additions and suggestions are always welcome!

This blog has evolved over time and will continue to evolve.  But I do plan on keeping the posts at least remotely related to Martinis.   As the tag line says:

A blog for thoughts, ideas, comments, about the Perfect Martini:
How to make, how to enjoy, where to enjoy.

(If you previously read this and are wondering why you’re getting notification again, I’ve had a minor problem with my host.  In the process of updating my site I lost this post which originally was posted on December 23, 2017.  Which is also why I have changed the format of this blog.)
