Good News!

Some of you know a certain blogger from Canada who had chemo and surgery last year. Today her MRI came back and she is clean!
Yay! Here are our two alter egos celebrating! Colette and Daphne.
My buddy and I have had many experiences together, Napa, Paris and even driving my daughter the bride to her wedding ceremony!
She is a great pal and so much fun! Congrats! and I understand you are off to Norway now! Fantastique! CM

I feel like Erin Brokovich and hope Helen Mirren plays me in the movie. ;)   

I also do not encourage children to drink but my sophisticated Little Assistant has been to restaurants in San Francisco where she has been asked if she wanted a "Shirley Temple". Not knowing who Shirley Temple was... Not caring for 7 up nor mariscino cherries this baby of the Foodie generation found it too sweet.

So coming from the 1950's myself in this mid century decor loving Mad Men watching world I created and am introducing as
founder the new Child proof cocktail:
The Katy Perry.

It consists of lemonade, ice cubes, and a dash of blue food coloring. (you may substitute blue berry juice or any thing blue but Curacao which contains alcohol.)
She chose to stir it, not shake it as we were using her Mother's seriously heavy crystal cocktail shaker.
I wetted the glass rim and tried to coat the edge with left over blue cookie decorating sprinkles but that just didn't fly.

So Cheers from California to Toronto for showing Auction Houses we will not be played. CM
