  12. @cat shepardwe have many canals and small ponds in our development that are down a good two or 3 feet, so if we end up getting 9 to 12 inches of rain there are places for it to drain into. But thank you for your concern.

  17. Balck Widow cocktail: Black Widow may leave you thinking about creepy, crawly spiders. Or a Marvel movie starring Scarlett Johansson. But take one sip of this cocktail, and it may change your associations forever. Because this Black Widow combines tequila, lime juice and agave nectar (so, the makings of a good Margarita) with fresh blackberries—hence the name—and basil leaves. Lest you were concerned, it gets its bite from that blanco tequila, not venom. The recipe comes from Duggan McDonnell, a San Francisco bartender and the author of “Drinking the Devil’s Acre: A Love Letter from San Francisco and Her Cocktails.” He begins by muddling the blackberries and basil in a shaker, releasing the former’s juices and the latter’s sweet herbal qualities. This step not only provides a punch of fresh flavor, but it also produces the drink’s bright-red color. Choose your favorite tequila for this cocktail, but make sure you select a blanco rather than a reposado or añejo. The dry, peppery, earthy profile of an unaged blanco props up the drink with a solid backbone and merges perfectly with the sweet berries and tart lime. On the other hand, a tequila that spent time in barrels would feature oaky accents like vanilla and caramel, which you don’t want in this drink. Shake everything together with ice, strain the refreshing contents into your glass and don’t forget the fresh basil and blackberry garnish for the full effect. This is one Black Widow whose bite brings pleasure, not pain. Ingredients: 3 basil leaves 2 blackberries 1 1/2 oz. blanco tequila 1 oz. lime juice, freshly squeezed 1 teaspoon agave nectar Garnish: basil leaf Garnish: blackberry
  18. I hope I was a creative educator and am passing my ideas on to DD. When we were in Anchorage we took a tour and the guide told of the man who tried to open a drive-in there. Problem, of course, is it never got dark. LOL
