We've been back from vacation for almost a week and oh boy, do we miss it.  So great to have a break, so wonderful to be able to drive a few hours and be in a completely different atmosphere.  LOVE Central Oregon!  Have you been able to have a break yet?  Well, if not, how about we have a little one now at the Virtual Girls Night Out?!

For our weekly Friday night blog party all you need to make this party complete is to grab a beverage of your choice (cocktail recipe below for inspiration) and your fuzzy slippers! If you choose to leave your link to participate in a blog hop please do! I started this blog party in 2008 and bloggers have been virtually partying ever since.  To participate In The Virtual GNO:  Enjoy this post!  Or, if you would like, link up your blog below and visit your fellow party guests - say "Happy VGNO!!!"  Share the blog game/meme on your site to play along.  Also, I have a great Giveaway right... over...HERE.

Time For Some Tunes!

The Sunday's "Summertime"

I've been going through a late '80's / '90's alt music phase this Summer. The Smiths, The Psychedelic Furs, Cocteau Twins.  Ah, youth.  (For those of you who say "That's before my time" - aah, yeah.  How nice for you.)  What were you listening to in the '90's?

Time For A Cocktail!

Ann Again and again Friday Night Party -- Virtual GNO


  • 1/2 cup(s) fresh or frozen raspberries for garnish 
  • 2 cup(s) cranberry-raspberry juice
  • 2 cup(s) seltzer
  • 2 tablespoon(s) lime juice, plus 4 wedges for garnish
  • 6 ounce(s) (3/4 cup) vodka

  1. If using fresh raspberries, freeze them in a single layer for about 1 hour (or overnight) before proceeding with Step 2.
  2. Combine cranberry-raspberry juice, seltzer, lime juice, and vodka in a pitcher. Divide among 4 ice-filled glasses. Garnish with frozen raspberries and lime wedges.

Sounds delightful.  Cheers!

Time For Some Knowledge!

For those of you who don't know how to create a "cent" symbol when you're writing about prices, etc. I've found out how to do it!  Well, I found out for Microsoft Windows.  (If you're an Apple user - time to search!).  Here's the formula: Push your Num Lock button.  While holding down the Alt key push the numbers 0162 then voila!  A little cent symbol appears. (Num Lock + Alt key + 0162 = ¢).

I hope you enjoy your Virtual GNO everyone! I think I'll try to find my Walkman and play some tapes.  My girls will be so-o-o-o confused ;-> . Thanks for stopping by.  Cheers!

    1. Absolutely not Kathleen! I just tried to do too many things at once and forgot to put a linky thing up. It's up now and you're on it :-> Happy Virtual GNO!

  2. Honestly, I was still using a Walkman as recently as 10 years ago. The last thing I listened to on it was a Linkin Park cassette in 2003 - I used to walk around Seaside listening to my tunes, and I preferred the Walkman over my Discman because it didn't skip when I walked, HA! I upgraded to a my first MP3 player later in 2003 so that was the last time I rocked out on my Walkman.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I hope you enjoyed your visit.
