  1. La dolce vita, I prefer the swanky italIan cocktail of Campari and soda with an orange twist. I love how in Italy they have it prepared and stocked in the hotel minibar. Salute!

  2. Mmm… nothing beats a glass of Long Island Iced Tea to help sweeten the bitterness of not attending the OWMD! 😉

  3. Now Randy makes a FINE marguerita but? I could go for a Long Island Ice tea just now. Wait, it’s only 5 a.m. and I’m fresh off the redeye from Kaua’i.

  4. Definitely the regular, old school vodka gimlet! A cucumber soaking in vodka? It sounds like sipping on pickle juice!

  5. Transmission rebuilds are extremely popular because they save money
    for the car owner. If you have misplaced this extender,
    just spray your key liberally and turn it in the stiff lock several times.
    If your vehicle seems to be leaking fluids, start by replacing the gaskets and seals.
