Sounds interesting, I'd like to know why that is, but first, I need to finish an article on how easy the kindle is to operate one-handed.
You doing your own research? ;D Perhaps you need help since you are writing your other book on why Kindle Books Are So Expensive? Don't want you exhausting yourself and not having time for your Kindle. :)

Since you said volunteer I'm guessing it isn't a paid position, so are there any perks? ;D Free dinners, balloon rides, tax deductions, trips? I work for a non-profit so I ask up front.

I'll be happy to mix the drinks, Mai Tais to start? And I don't know any South American Generals on Maui so you are safe. Count me in. ;D

Indeed. Encender Sunscreeno Vaquero, at your service. But just the same, we'll take TM along as a decoy in the event there's any lagging cabana generals...

Perhaps we've never met? ;)

Actually, it's damn hard to get a proper Mai Tai anymore, as few bars carry apricot brandy. When you find one, it's either 1) made from a powdered mix, or 2) actually a Hurricane... likely also made from a powdered mix.

Mai Tai's were my first legal drink. My mother took me out on my 18th b-day and got me hammered on them.

If somebody tries to stick a Mai-Tai in your back... they're a really, really crappy bartender.

I eat crappy bartenders for breakfast.

(Thus my ongoing breath problem.)

Apricot Brandy in a Mai Tai, Jim you are rapidly losing your status with me as a rum cocktail drinker. I use the original Trader Vic's recipe the way my Daddy taught me.

The Original Trader Vic Formula - 1944

* 2 oz of 17-year old rum over shaved ice
* Add juice from one fresh lime
* 1/2 oz Holland DeKuyper Orange Curacao
* 1/4 oz Rock Candy Syrup
* 1/2 oz French Garnier Orgeat Syrup
* Shake vigorously.
* Add a sprig of fresh mint

That sounds good, GG. I'll bring the mint when the snow melts in my garden. Can you whip me up one or three?
