A is for...

A is for An Albino (White) Russian is a classic creamy cocktail that is made with vodka, coffee liqueur, and cream, milk or half and half. It is typically served in an Old-Fashioned (or rocks) glass over ice. The vodka and coffee liqueur are first poured into a glass that has been filled with ice, and then the drink is topped off with milk or half and half. The finished drink is usually not stirred, as the dark Kahlua and the vodka should rest on the bottom of the glass below the milk or half and half. Just re-watched The Big Lebowski for the 50th time and it brought to mind the white russian but as I searched the web for a picture of the drink, guess what else I found? 8)) Who knew??
A is for an Albino Russian: To Quote: The plants yield very powerful buds, coated with resin. Very strong, long lasting High, more cerebral than a
knockout. Medicinal plant. These seeds can produce plants that are fantastic in both appearance, and effect. One of the most typically indica strains, White Russian is a stable cross of AK-47 and White Widow (a prize winning indica clone). Medium height, consistent plants and dense, very resinous flower tops (crystals appear after about 5 weeks of flowering). With such a strong indica background, the plants smell quite strong during both their growth and flowering period. 2-times Cupwinner!
A is for "aggregates" of ash- Iceland's volcanic eruption yields ash clues
They're really quite beautiful. Some of the aggregates are dendritic, so they're really angular and have long fingers of... material. On a completely different note! Have you seen these? Is this not the utmost in cute? They are Pjusken's Strawberry Booties.... These I will HAVE to make!

I am thinking vests today! Wicked Vest by Joƫlle Meier Rioux
Of course I'd make it longer and not so fitting!

Talk to you soon,

There are two motives for reading a book: one, that you enjoy it; the other, that you can boast about it.
