To Enhance Flavor, Just Add Water

WHEN fine-tuning the flavor of dishes and drinks, I’ve always turned to the usual bench of taste and aroma boosters: salt and pepper, lemon juice, herbs and spices, this or that condiment. One ingredient that never, ever came to mind was water. Water has no flavor to give. It doesn’t boost, it dilutes.

Then a few months ago, the London bartender Tony Conigliaro told me that weak cocktails can be more aromatic than stronger drinks. That observation provoked me to play with the proportions of alcohol and water in spirits and wines. Then this month, a barista showed me that I could make tastier coffee by brewing it with less ground coffee and more water.

It’s true, as it turned out: Water is indeed a useful flavor enhancer, exactly because it dilutes other ingredients and can change their balance for the better.

It’s no secret that the alcohol in drinks can get in the way of our enjoying their flavors. When alcohol makes up more than 10 to 12 percent of a liquid’s volume, we begin to notice its irritating, pungent effects in the mouth and in the nose. Spirits like whiskey and gin are 40 percent alcohol or more, and very pungent indeed.

Fans and judges of Scotch whiskies often sample their flavor by “nosing” them, or sniffing the aroma that gathers in the glass. Nosers have long known that diluting the spirit with roughly the same amount of water reduces the alcohol burn. And at the same time, strangely, amplifies the aromas.

How can water reduce one sensation and amplify another? Both alcohol and aroma molecules are volatile, meaning they evaporate from foods and drinks and are carried by the air to the odor receptors high up in the nasal cavity.

Aroma molecules are also more chemically similar to alcohol molecules than they are to water, so they tend to cling to alcohol, and are quicker to evaporate out of a drink when there’s less alcohol to cling to.

This means that the more alcoholic a drink is, the more it cloisters its aroma molecules, and the less aroma it releases into the air. Add water and there’s less alcohol to irritate and burn, and more aroma release.

The same principle explains why stiff martinis and Manhattans can be less aromatic than lower-proof cocktails, as many bartenders know. Audrey Saunders of the Pegu Club in New York told me that realizing this led her to develop a series of what she calls “inverted drinks,” in which spirits play a supporting role to vermouth or other low-alcohol ingredients.

Her Madeira Martinez combines one part gin (40 percent alcohol) and two parts Madeira (20 percent) for a drink that starts at around 30 percent alcohol before ice dilutes it further. The Intro to Aperol, with two parts of the 11-percent aperitif wine to one of gin, comes in around 20 percent. With drinks like these, Ms. Saunders said, the goal is to highlight the flavors of the weaker ingredient.

Just to see what spirits themselves are like with no alcohol burn at all, I diluted a number of them with plain water by three to one, to cut their alcohol levels to the equivalent of a low-alcohol wine. All of them remained plenty aromatic, a couple of English gins spectacularly so. With a bit of lemon juice and sugar, they made an odd but pleasant drink: an aqua-gin.

High-alcohol wines, those that exceed about 14 percent alcohol, are often described as “hot” and unbalanced. Alcohol’s irritating effects account for the heat. And flavor chemists have found that high alcohol levels accentuate a wine’s bitterness, reduce its apparent acidity and diminish the release of most aroma molecules. Alcohol particularly holds down fruity and floral aromas, so the aroma that’s left is mainly woody, herbaceous and vegetal.

I couldn’t find any recent trials of wine dilution, but it’s been practiced since the days of ancient Greece, so I went ahead and tried it on a California zinfandel with 14.9 percent alcohol. I poured a partial glass of the wine and added about a quarter of its volume in water, to get
it down to 12 percent.

A glass of the full-strength wine tasted hot, dense, jammy and a little sulfurous, while the diluted version was lighter all around but still full of flavor, tarter, more fruity than jammy, and less sulfurous. It was no substitute for a true 12 percent wine, made from grapes harvested with less fermentable sugar and a different balance of flavors that we taste full-strength.

But the watered-down wine was surprisingly pleasant, and maybe more suited to summer evenings than the intense original. I ended up alternating sips and enjoying the contrast.

There’s even a place for more water in coffee. I learned this from James Hoffmann, a 2007 winner of the World Barista Championship whose passion for flavor has led him from espresso to brewed coffee and its less concentrated but more diverse aromas. ------>

Mr. Hoffmann is the proprietor of Square Mile Coffee, a roasting company in London, and a six-stool, espresso-less coffee bar that closes this week after a temporary residence in the Shoreditch district. At the bar, named Penny University for the term applied to the first London coffeehouses, he and his colleagues offered a revelatory short course in the possibilities of brewed coffee. They presented a menu of three contrasting kinds of beans, brewed them using any of three methods, and chatted with their customers about the fine points of the ingredients, process and flavor.

Earlier this month I enrolled in a tasting of coffees from Kenya, Ethiopia and Guatemala, all roasted lightly to avoid losing their distinctive qualities in the intense but more generic flavors of a dark roast. Each cup was less concentrated than I’m used to making for myself, yet delicious and distinctive.

Mr. Hoffmann explained that industry standards for brewed coffee strength vary a great deal, from around 1.25 percent extracted coffee solids in the United States to something approaching 2 percent in Brazil and in specialty coffeehouses. He aims for 1.5 percent, and gets it consistently with the help of a precision water boiler and a digital scale on which he does the brewing, pouring water to the gram.

“It seems silly, debating decimals,” Mr. Hoffmann said, “but it makes a big difference to the flavor.” A tablespoon of water more or less can shift the extracted solids by a perceptible amount. It also matters how the coffee solids are extracted. Mr. Hoffmann told me that concentrated brews are often made palatable by using a lot of coffee and reducing the brewing time or the temperature to extract only the easy-going portion of its flavor materials. The result is intense but one-dimensional. More fully extracting a smaller amount of gently roasted, high-quality coffee, as Mr. Hoffmann and a number of new-wave brewing advocates are doing, brings out its full range of tastes and aromas.

“When I drink coffee I’m looking for clarity, by which I mean distinguishable, characterful, interesting flavors,” Mr. Hoffmann said. The lightness of his brews did seem to highlight their very different aromas, which changed but remained enjoyable even as the remains cooled to room temperature. “No other liquid I know evolves as much as you drink it,” he said.

I brought home some of Mr. Hoffmann’s Yirgacheffe, an Ethiopian coffee that I love for its unusual blueberry aroma, and measured my brewing against his with the help of a refractometer, a device that measures dissolved solids. (Refractometers are sold online beginning at around $50). I made a cup at my standard strength, which turned out to be 2.2 percent coffee solids.

When I dropped the strength close to Mr. Hoffmann’s preferred 1.5 percent by using a third less ground coffee (about 12 grams of coffee to 180 grams, or 6 fluid ounces, of water), the fruity aroma was much more evident, and the flavor generally brighter and more lively. Clarity is a good word for the overall impression.

So I’m making my coffee with more water now, and getting many more cups from a bag of beans.

You don’t need a refractometer to explore the power of dilution, though a scale is advisable for getting close to Mr. Hoffmann’s sweet spot for coffee, since volume measures are unreliable and the decimals count. If you’re in the habit of brewing strong cups from premium beans, then give his proportions a try, weighing out both coffee and water. Or, later in the day, pour a glass of strong spirits or a big wine and try adding some water. Or make one of Ms. Saunders’s inverted cocktails. And see whether the flavor you get is not so much watered-down as opened up, and good.

Golf ...

Try to understand Golf because you will never figure out women!

In primitive society, when native tribes beat the ground with clubs and yelled, it was called witchcraft; today, in civilized society, it is called golf.
The man who takes up golf to get his mind off his work soon takes up work to get his mind off golf.
Golf was once a rich man's sport, but now it has millions of poor players!

Golf is an expensive way of playing marbles.
The secret of good golf is to hit the ball hard, straight, and not too often.

There are three ways to improve your golf game: take lessons, practice constantly - or start cheating.

An amateur golfer is one who addresses the ball twice - once before swinging, and once again, after swinging.

Many a golfer prefers a golf cart to a caddy because it can not count, criticize, or laugh.

Golf is a game in which the slowest people in the world are those in front of you, and the fastest are those behind.

Golf got it's name because all of the other four-letter words were taken.

Tips ...

Buy Extra
If you find black slacks or skirts that you like, buy an extra pair. Black fades quickly, but having an extra will keep your favorite clothes from wearing out too quickly.

Simple Ways to Stay in Shape
You don't have to sign up for a special class or take up a new sport to stay in shape -- just keep moving! Everything from mowing the lawn to playing ball with your friends keeps you moving, which keeps you feeling better. Throughout the day, find reasons to move more: take the stairs instead of the elevator, or go out and walk your dog. You'll get exercise, and you'll feel better, too!

Ten Ways To Make Yourself Attractive to a Woman

1. Be confident in who you are.
2.Have a sense of humor.
3.Show good manners.
4.Be respectful.
5.Be controversial.
6.Be sensitive.
7.Ask her what she wants and likes.
8.Don't just tell her you do, but put your trust in her.
9.Tell her about one time your feelings got hurt.
10. Kiss her softly, then kiss her passionately.


What color can you wear to compel the opposite sex to approach you? According to Color Consultant Leatrice Eiseman, Director of the Pantone Color Institute and author of Colors For Your Every Mood, women are attracted to men wearing the color blue. And why wouldn't we be? According to Eiseman, guys who frequently wear blue are "stable, faithful, constant and always there." The blue guy is a fantastic candidate for a long-term relationship -- someone who's dependable, momogomous and can match his own clothes.
And what about the ladies? Eiseman says women should wear a pink- peach to make themselves most approachable. The color is "very flattering to most skin tones, it gives you healthy glow," and according to Eiseman, projects "a little vulnerability which brings out something protective in men."
Want to wear a color that weeds out guys who can't handle strong women? Try a deep red, burgundy or plum.
Men who aren't attracted to strong women will steer clear. Of all the colors, red is the most sensual. But, wear red with caution. "Red is the color of sex and power," says Eiseman. Red adds an element of excitement and attracts two types of men - men interested in sex, and men attracted to powerful women. Sure, you'll probably have to fend off a lot of freaks, but you could also end up attracting a guy that isn't threatened by the fact that you make a bigger salary.
Concerned your wardrobe is driving people away? Stay away from what Eiseman calls "squished caterpillar yellow-green" which is said to repel both sexes equally.

And ...

An efficiency expert concluded his lecture with a note of caution. "You don't want to try these techniques at home." "Why not?" asked somebody from the audience."I watched my wife's routine at breakfast for years," the expert explained. "She made lots of trips between the refrigerator, stove, table and cabinets, often carrying a single item at a time. One day I told her, 'Hon, why don't you try carrying several things at once?'""Did it save time?" the person in the audience asked."Actually, yes," replied the expert. "It use to take her 20 minutes to make breakfast. Now I do it in seven."

Typically, guys like fights when they're at a hockey game, or watching reality TV. But guys don't particularly like fights when they happen in relationships.

We shy away from confrontation for several reasons: first, men win arguments with women about as often as Dennis Kucinich wins presidential primaries.

Second, we don't have that much we want to argue about. When Rodney King asked, "Can't we all just get along?" there were millions of guys nodding their heads, asking the same thing. For the vast majority of guys, fighting is failure, and quite possibly a violation of local noise ordinances.

Men may have a few little things to quibble about (Where in the world did you put my Strokes concert T-shirt?), but for the most part, we'll do anything to avoid conflict, especially these types of conflict: The "Blackberry" Fight You look at it too much. Does that thing always have to be on? You work way too much! You're right, you're right, and you're right. When a man's work is pitted against his relationship for time and attention, he can feel utterly conflicted.

Many men feel an intense pressure to succeed, to be the one who's counted on, to be hardwired into whatever's happening, even if it's not much. And when you tell him that he should feel that way about you rather than the job, he retreats.
That's because he'd rather make a choice between right and wrong than the choice you're asking him to make: The choice between two things that are both important, but vastly different. The "Ex" Fight You want to know what she's like, what she does, why your man was into her, and why they broke up. Him? He wants to stay as tight-lipped as the CIA's man in Moscow.

Which only fuels the speculation - she must've been great, she must've broken up with him, she must've been the love of his life. The truth may be none of those things, but he wants to reveal as little as possible because there's no upside.
If he recalls any positives about her, he's afraid you'll compare, and think poorly of yourself. If he says nasty things about his ex, he loses two ways: you'll think badly of him for unchivalrous behavior, and wonder why he was with such a no-good girlfriend in the first place.The "Finale" Fight When a break-up is inevitable, a guy doesn't want to go out with shouts, insults, crying, and random appliance tossing. Even though this relationship may have not worked out entirely the way either of you had pictured, he doesn't want it to end badly.

Why? Because there's a big part of him that cares very much about his rep; he doesn't want to be perceived as a bad guy, or a mean one, or some jerk who deserves to be hit by the cross-town bus next time he crosses the street.
Even if he wants an ending, he doesn't want it to be a bad one - which is why many breakup-minded men try to make a soft landing back in the singles world: Slowly, gently, and perhaps unfairly as well. The "Wedding" Fights Not the wedding fight, as in whether or not to have one. But fights, as in plural, the kind that happen between the first ring he puts on your finger, and the second. He knows you want him involved in all the decisions big (who to invite) and small (what style napkins). He knows that "It's up to you" is usually one of the "
Five Things You Should Never Say to a Woman," as this article artfully instructs (hint: make sure he reads and heeds it!).

But in this case, his acquiescence isn't because he's uninterested; it's because he respects that this is your (and possibly your mother's) big day, so enjoy it, do what you want, and don't get mad because he won't tell you if he prefers the butter cream icing or the marzipan.As for other kinds of fights, here's
a great list of common face-offs and how men will try to defuse them. See if you recognize any of his tactics.

Have a Great Day at WORK - I'm going to PRISON!!!

A lady manager of a big reputed office noticed a new man one day and told him to come into her office."What is your name?" was the first thing she asked the new guy."John," the new guy replied.She scowled, "Look... I don't know what kind of a namby-pamby place you worked before, but I don't call anyone by their first name. It breeds familiarity and that leads to a breakdown in authority.I refer to my employees by their last name only ... Smith, Jones, Baker ...that's all.I am to be referred to only as Mrs. Robertson. Now that we got that straight, what is your last name?"The new guy sighed, "Darling..... ....... My name is John Darling.""Okay John, the next thing I want to tell you is . . . "

Family Business
A very successful businessman had a meeting with his new son-in-law. "I love my daughter, and now I welcome you into the family," said the man. "To show you how much we care for you, I am making you a 50-50 partner in my business. All you have to do is go to the factory every day and learn the operations." The son-in-law interrupted. "I hate factories. I can't stand the noise." "I see," replied the father-in-law. "Well then you'll work in the office and take charge of some of the operations." "I hate office work," said the son-on-law. "I can't stand being stuck behind a desk all day." "Wait a minute," said the father-in-law. "I just made you a half-owner of a profitable corporation, but you don't like factories and won't work in a office. What am I going to do with you?" "Easy," said the young man. "Buy me out."

Londoners least likely to have sex in car! More than two out of five motorists have made love in a car, but Londoners are the least likely to indulge, a survey said today. The Welsh are the keenest in-car lovers, with Londoners least likely to indulge, the survey from car insurance company Diamond found. Those aged 22-29 are most likely to engage in motoring sex, although as many as 39% of those aged 60 or more admitted amorous in-car activity. Based on responses from 1,000 motorists, the survey showed: :: 41% have had sex in a car; :: 52% of men, but only 34% of women, have made love in a motor; :: 46% of Welsh motorists, but only 35% of London ones, admitted in-car sex; :: Of those owning up, 53% did it in the front seat, 39% in the back seat and 9% on the bonnet. Diamond managing director Sian Lewis said: "It's surprising to see that so many people have used their cars in this way. Who knows, it could be that the bedroom just isn't as much fun or people simply can't wait to get home. "With considerably more men than women admitting to making love in their car, you have to question if this is a case of men exaggerating their in-car prowess or women not wanting to admit to it."

Three boys were sitting on a fence talking. One of the little boys says to the other, "If you could have your body covered in anything, what would it be?"
After thinking for a while the boy answers. "Silver."
"Well, why?"
"I could peel it off and buy that Honda over there."
The boy then asks the other, "And you?"
"Gold, I could peel it off and by the BMW sitting over there."
After a few seconds one of the boys ask the first boy, "Well, what about you?"
The boy thought and thought and finally, said very calmly, "Hair".
Well the other two boys were just sickened and asked.."HAIR???? Why in the hell would you want your WHOLE BODY covered in HAIR???"
"Well", the boy answered, "My sister has got a little tiny patch of hair and she owns both of those cars!!!"

A Lobster Story
In a small fishing village, a Newfoundlander was walking Up the wharf carrying two at-least-three-pound live lobsters, one in each hand. It was three weeks after the season closed! Whom should he meet at the end of the wharf but the Federal Fisheries Officer who, upon viewing the live and wiggling lobsters, says: "Well me Laddie I got you this time - with two live lobsters three weeks after the season Closed!" The Newfie says, "No - My Son you are wrong! These are two trained lobsters that I caught two weeks before the season ended." The Fisheries Officer says, " Trained like how?" "Well my son, each day I takes these two from my house down to the wharf and puts them in the water for a swim. While they swim I sits on the wharf and has me a smoke, or two. After about 15 minutes I whistles and up comes me two lobsters, and I takes them home!" "Likely story", the Fisheries Officer says! "Lets take them on down the wharf and see if it's true." So, the Newfie goes ahead of the Fisheries Officer to the end of the wharf where, under supervision, he gently lowers both lobsters into the water. The Newfie sits on a wharf piling and lights up a smoke, then another! After about 15 minutes the Fisheries Officer says to the Newfie, "How about whistling?" The Newfie says " What For?" The Fisheries Officer says, " To call in the Lobsters" The Newfie says, " What Lobsters?"

Yes I Do ...

I find this list quite interesting.

Airplane Tickets When to Buy: Wednesday morning. Why: "Most airfare sales are thrown out there on the weekend," says travel expert Peter Greenberg, a.k.a. The Travel Detective. Other airlines then jump into the game, discounting their own fares and prompting further changes by the first airline. The fares reach their lowest prices late Tuesday or early Wednesday.
Books When to Buy: Thursday. Why: Price compare between major chains Borders and Barnes & Noble. The former releases its weekly sales and coupons on every Thursday; the latter, every Tuesday.
Cars When to Buy: Monday. Why: "Car dealers live for the weekend, which is when they make most of their sales," says Phil Reed, consumer advice editor for "On Mondays, the low foot traffic makes it seem like the weekend will never come." That dealer desperation, paired with fewer consumers on the lot, gives you more negotiating power.
Clothing When to Buy: Thursday evening. Why: That's the day when stores stock their shelves for the weekend, and when many retailers — including Ann Taylor, Banana Republic and Express — start their weekend promotions, says Kathryn Finney, author of "How to Be a Budget Fashionista." You'll find great prices and the best selection. "It's an effort to get people to shop in the middle of the week," she says.
Department-Store Wares When to Buy: Saturday evening. Why: Department stores have a lot to mark down for their Sunday circulars, so they frequently start the process on Saturday evenings before store closing, says Finney. "They're preparing for the big rush," she says. Bonus: Even if the markdowns haven't been made, many employees will honor the sale price if you ask. Print out the circular preview from the store's web site, and bring it with you when you head to the mall.
Dinner Out When to Buy: Tuesday. Why: Most restaurants do not receive food deliveries over the weekend. "Sunday is the garbage-can day of the week," says Kate Krader, senior editor at Food & Wine magazine. "No doubt, they're cleaning out their fridges. Tuesdays, they're starting fresh." Dining out on that day offers the best odds you'll get a meal worth paying for, no matter your price point, she says.
Entertainment When to Buy: Wednesday. Why: Plenty of movie theaters, amusement parks and museums offer extra discounts to consumers who visit midweek. Six Flags theme parks offer a $12 discount to AAA members — three times its usual discount of $4. AMC Theatres offers members in its free AMC Movie Watcher reward program free small popcorn on Wednesdays. (This summer, it's also the day select theaters offer free Summer Movie Camp screenings.)
Gas When to Buy: Thursday, before 10 a.m. Why: The price of oil isn't the only factor influencing costs at your local pump. Consumer usage plays a role, too — and weekend demand is high, says Jason Toews, co-founder of, a price-monitoring site. Prices usually swing upward on Thursdays as travelers fuel up to head out the following day. By hitting the pump before 10 a.m. (when many station owners change their prices), you'll beat the rush and the price jump.
Groceries When to Buy: Sunday — or Tuesday. Why: Maximize savings by combining store sales, which run from Wednesday to Tuesday, with the latest round of coupons from your Sunday paper, says Mary Hunt, publisher of Debt-Proof Living, a money-saving newsletter. "It's a smart idea to wait until you have those in hand to match up with the week's sale items," she says. To snag savings on items you don't need just yet, shop on Tuesday, advises Hunt. Chances are, the store will have run out of the sale items. "That means you can pick up rain checks, which allow you to buy those items later when you need them, and at the sale price," she says.
Hotel Rooms When to Buy: Sunday. Why: There are two kinds of hotel managers, and the kind that won't give you a discount on your room rate has Sundays off, says Greenberg. Call the hotel directly, and ask to speak with the manager on duty or the director of sales. These employees are open to negotiation, he says. They'd rather have a booked room at a discounted rate than an empty room. (The rest of the week, your call would get you a so-called revenue manager, who monitors profits — and is rarely willing to lower rates.)

Have Fun...

This experience might be for BOTH you and your husband, but paramount to everything else is that you have fun. That means if you want new panties, a new outfit, or the house cleaned, you shall receive it.
Planning is half the fun. Email your man, call your man, text message your man. As along as your husband knows about all of your communications, you should feel free to talk to your man whenever you want.

No secrets. If your man calls you and tell you how much he wants you, tell your husband. If you meet your man for a drink (or more), tell your husband. If you experience something special with your man while your husband isn’t present, tell your husband. Our husbands like details almost as much as we like having a special boyfriend on the side.

Remind your husband that you’ll stay with him forever. We love our husbands and we will never leave them…they need to know that. Just because I enjoy meeting my boyfriend on the weekends, doesn’t mean I don’t love my husband more than ever. Maybe even love him more for permitting you to have such experiences.

Do different things. Don’t get stuck in a rut. If you always meet at your house, ask to meet at your man’s place. Ask you husband to stay home while you go out. Ask your man to videotape your experience so your husband and you can watch later. Try audio taping the fun. Husbands love to listen.

Preserve yourself for your man. Never have sex with your husband within 1 day prior to meeting your man. Not only will you preserve your body for your man, but also you and your husband will enjoy the kinky rule.

Dress for your man. If he likes your black panties, wear them. If he likes no panties, remove them and ask your husband to hold them. If he likes your legs, wear a short dress. If he likes your feet wear high heels. No matter what you do, specify to your man that you are wearing it
Tell your husband what you like. If you enjoy your husband watching, tell him. If you enjoy being alone with your man, tell him. If you enjoy being double-teamed by them both, tell him. He is dying to hear what you like and what you want.

Express your fantasies. If you want to try something crazy, tell your husband your thoughts. Give ideas of wild things like role-playing while in public. Go to a bar (away from your home) and pretend your man is really your husband and that your husband is just a friend of your man. Arrange a 4some with one of your man’s friends. The extra set of hands wonders. Remember how great it was when your first experienced 2 men? The 4 hands touching your body? Imagine 6 hands!

Request gifts from your man. He enjoys giving you pleasure in bed. He enjoys when your husband watches him do it. He’ll also enjoy buying you little gifts to show he cares. Start by asking for something small. Maybe, a nightgown or new panties for him to tear off of you.
Never settle for just having a husband. You may love him forever, but you deserve to enjoy other men too. If you break up with your man, tell your husband to find another one. Tell him that you enjoy and deserve the attention of two (or more) men. He’ll understand. He loves you and wants you to be happy.

Thoughts While Cuffed and Blindfolded

Ever wonder what makes professional chefs' food taste so good?
Sure, they have great kitchens and tools and an army of people helping them, but more importantly they know lots of great steps to make food more special. These simple shortcuts will help you add great flavor when you cook, and might even save you some time and money!
A Toast for Flavor Chefs know that gently toasting nuts and spices gives them a rich, complex flavor. Try toasting pine nuts before blending into pesto to intensify the flavor; when making whipped cream, toast 2 tablespoons of cinnamon until just fragrant and add it to the cream before whipping for a lovely jolt of flavor.
Give it a Rest Give meat and poultry a chance to develop their flavors by giving it a rest after cooking.
A good rule of thumb is to let the meat sit, loosely tented with foil, for 1/2 to 3/4 of the time it took to cook. This will give the juices time to absorb back into the meat and give you superior taste.
A Perfect Serve It's easy to dress up boring plates and platters. I like to use a pastry brush to add a fun design -- just dip the brush into mustard or another cold sauce and draw a wide stripe across the plate.
Another way to add a wow to your presentation is by rolling out a bunch of chives into a single layer on the plate -- it looks like a fresh, inviting grass mat.
Breaking Point Many people know that the easiest way to remove the tough, woody base of asparagus is to snap the stalk in half with your hands. But did you know that rather than tossing them out, you can put those discarded ends to use in a rich, flavorful vegetable stock?
Just simmer them with carrots, celery, onions, and a bay leaf for a light and fresh alternative to chicken stock.

Thoughts While Thinking About My Clitty

A man's in bed with his girlfriend.

After having great sex, she spends the next hour just stroking his penis, something she had lovingly done on many occasions. Rather enjoying it, he turns and asks her, 'Why do you love doing that?' She replies: 'Because I really miss mine'.

1. Have Boobs: I know not everyone has them, but if you do, then you don’t need to read the rest of this how to. Boobs are the answer to most problems.

2. Make Eye Contact But Don’t Be Creepy: You want the bartender to acknowledge you’re there and in line, but you don’t want to hold the gaze so long he tenses his butthole in fearful anticipation of what you might do to him when he walks to his car later. Eye contact, then look away.

3. Hold Cash In Your Hand: Don’t hold it out like you’re beckoning a stripper, just hold it noticeably in your hand so he knows you want to purchase.

4. Don’t Bitch: A bartender is not your child, you don’t have the right to verbally abuse him. Wait patiently and you will be served after everyone with boobs.

Wine Tips

Choosing vinegars and oils

When pairing wine with salads, make your salad dressing more wine-friendly by using less vinegar than usual.

Experiment with wine-friendly vinegars, from Banyuls to sherry, to achieve the best match for a wine. While verjus is often cited as wine-friendly for its lower acidity, beware its higher levels of tannin.

Use lighter oils (such as canola or non-virgin olive) when pairing with lighter wines, and stronger oils (such as extra-virgin olive, which has stronger olive and pepper flavors) with bigger wines.


One morning a grumpy boss notices that one of his employees is not at his desk, so he calls his home. A small child answers in a whisper, "Hello?" "Is your father home?" the boss asks. "Yes," the child replies. "May I please speak with him?" "No," is the response. "Okay, is your mommy home then?" "Yes," is whispered again. "May I please speak with her?" "No," is the reply. By now the boss is getting frustrated. "What are they doing then?" he asks. "Talking to the policeman," the child whispers. Now this gets the bosses attention. "Why is there a policeman there?" he asks. "He came in the helicopter," the child whispers. "A helicopter?" Now his interest is really intrigued. "Why is there a helicopter there?" he asks in an excited voice. "They're all with the search party," the child says. "A search party, who are they searching for?" the boss asks. "Me," the voice replies, and then hangs up.

Did You Know...?

Place settings can be confusing. The general rule for silverware is to work from the outside in as the meal progresses.
Dinner plate - The center of the place setting. When finished eating, do not push the plate away from you. Instead, place both your fork and knife across the center of the plate, handles to the right. . Between bites, your fork and knife are placed on the plate, handles to the right, not touching the table.

Soup bowl - May be placed on the dinner plate. If you need to set your soup spoon down, place it in the bowl. Do not put it on the dish under the bowl until finished.

Bread plate - Belongs just above the tip of the fork. Bread should be broken into bite -sized pieces, not cut. Butter only the piece you are preparing to eat. When butter is served, put some on your bread plate and use as needed.

Napkin - Placed to the left of the fork with the fold on the left. Sometimes placed under the forks or on the plate.

Salad fork - If a salad fork is used, it belongs to the left of the dinner fork.

Dinner fork - Placed to the left of the plate. No more than three forks to the left of the plate. If there are three forks, they are usually salad, fish, and meat, in order of use, from outside in. An oyster fork always goes to the right of the soup spoon.

Butter knife - Place horizontally on bread plate.
Dessert spoon - Above the plate.
Cake fork - Above the plate.

Dinner knife - To the right of the plate. Sometimes there are multiple knives, perhaps for meat, fish, and salad, in order of use from outside in.

Tea spoon - To the right of the dinner knife.
Soup spoon - If needed, to the right of the tea spoon.
Water glass - Just above the tip of the knife.
Red wine glass - To the right of the water glass.
White wine glass - To the right of the red wine glass. A glass of white wine is held on its stem to preserve the chill. It should be served at 45 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
Coffee cup and saucer - If needed, bring at time of coffee service.

You Said What?

Drink to that A guy walks into this bar and says, "Hey bartender, give me a Budweiser." So the bartender gets him a Bud. The man is enjoying his beer when he notices two beautiful blondes at the end of the bar. The man noticing that his beer is empty says, "Hey bartender, another Bud, and get those ladies at the end of the bar a drink on me." The Bartender gives the man his Bud, and says "Don't bother getting those Girls a drink, it won't do you any good. You're just wasting your time." The man says, "Naaa. Give em one on me." So the bartender pours the Girls a drink and gives em to the blondes. The girls out of respect Raise their glasses, in a sort of thank you, and take a drink.

The man Now figures he's in. So he walks over to the girls. He notices that the Girls are empty again. So the man yells, "Hey bartender, how about Another round over here?"

Five You Say!


There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:
FIRST --The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.
SECOND--Have you ever locked your keys in the car? Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).
THIRD--Hidden Battery Power - Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your B cell will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell next time.
FOURTH-- How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone? To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone: * # 0 6 # A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When or if your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.
FIFTH--Free Directory Service for Cells. Cell phone companies are charging us $1.00 to $1.75 or more for 411 information calls when they don't have to. Most of us do not carry a telephone directory in our vehicle, which makes this situation even more of a problem. When you need to use the 411 information option, simply dial: (800) FREE 411, or (800)373-3411 without incurring any charge at all. Program this into your cell phone now.

Just Laugh!

A man asked a waiter to take a bottle of Merlot to an extremely attractive woman sitting alone at a table in a cozy little restaurant. So the waiter took the Merlot to the woman and said, 'This is from the gentleman who is seated over there,' ..and indicated the sender with a nod of his head. She stared at the wine coolly for a few seconds, not looking at the man, then decided to send a reply to him by a note. The waiter, who was lingering nearby for a response, took the note from her and conveyed it to the gentleman. The note read: 'For me to accept this bottle, you need to have a Mercedes in your garage, a million dollars in the bank and 7 inches in your pants ' After reading the note, the man decided to compose one of his own in return. He folded the note, handed it to the waiter and instructed him to deliver it to the lady. It read: 'Just to let you know things aren't always what they appear to be, I have a Ferrari Maranello, BMW Z8, Mercedes CL600, and a Porsche Turbo in my severalgarages; I have a beautiful homes in Aspen , Miami , and a 10,000 acre ranch in Louisiana There is over twenty million dollars in my bank account and portfolio. But, not even for a woman as beautiful as you are, would I cut off three inches. Just send the bottle back.'

Is Your Jar Full?
When things in your life seem almost to much to handle, when 24 hours in aday are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar......and the beer. A Professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in frontof him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large andempty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He thenasked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.So the Professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into thejar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areasbetween the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar wasfull. They agreed it was.The Professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Ofcourse, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jarwas full. The students responded with an unanimous "Yes."The Professor then produced two cans of beer from under the table andpoured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the emptyspace between the sand. The students laughed."Now," said the Professor, as the laughter subsided, "I want you torecognize that this jar represents your life.The golf balls are the important things - your family, your children, yourhealth, your friends, your favorite passions - things that if everythingelse was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house,your car. The sand is everything else - the small stuff.""If you put the sand into the jar first", he continued, "there is no roomfor the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend allyour time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for thethings that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that arecritical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to getmedical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18. Therewill always be time to clean the house, and fix the disposal. Take care ofthe golf balls first, the things that really matter. Set your priorities.The rest is just sand."When he had finished, there was a profound silence. Then one of thestudents raised her hand and with a puzzled expression, inquired what thebeer represented.The Professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that nomatter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple ofbeers."

The truck driver stopped to pick up a young-lady hitchhiker who was wearing very short shorts."What's your name, mister?" she inquired, after she climbed up into the truck."It's Snow -- Roy Snow," he answered, "and yours?""Me, I'm June Hansen," she said."Hey, why do you keep sizing me up with those sidelong glances?" she challenged the trucker a few miles down the road."Oh, I was just thinkin' what it might be like," he drawled, "to have eight inches of Snow in June!"

More Funnies

A husband wrote the following letter for his wife and left it on the dining room table:'To My Dear Wife. You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being 54 years old, can no longer satisfy. I am very happy with you & I value you as a good wife. Therefore, after reading this letter, I hope that you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 18 year old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel. Please don't be upset – I shall be home before midnight.'When the man came home late that night, he found the following letter on the dining room table:'My Dear Husband. I received your letter and thank you for your honesty about my being 54 years old. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you are also 54 years old. As you know, I am a math teacher at our local college. I would like to inform you that while you read this, I will be at the Marriot Hotel with Michael, one of my students. He is young, virile, and like your secretary, is 18 years old. As a successful businessman who has an excellent knowledge of Math, you will understand that although it may appear that we are in the same situation, there is one mathematical difference:'18 goes into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes into 18.'Therefore, I will not be home until sometime tomorrow.'

Turn Off the Lights
A nun, badly needing to use the restroom, walked into a local Hooters. The place was hopping with music and loud conversation and every once in a while the lights would suddenly turn off. Each time the lights went out, the place would erupt into a loud cheer. However, when the patrons saw the nun walk in, the room went dead silent. She walked up to the bartender and asked, "Can you point me to the nearest the restroom?" The bartender replied, "Okay, but I should warn you, there's a statue of a naked man in there wearing only a fig leaf." "Well, in that case, I'll just look the other way," said the nun. So the bartender showed the nun to the back of the restaurant. After a few minutes, she came back out, and the whole place stopped just long enough to give the nun a loud round of applause. She went to the bartender and said, "Sir, I don't understand. Why did they applaud me just because I went to the restroom?" "Well, now they know you're one of us," said the bartender. "Would you like a drink?" "No thank you, but, I still don't understand," said the puzzled nun. "You see," laughed the bartender, "every time someone lifts the fig leaf on that statue, the lights go out. Now, how about that drink?"

Two lawyers had been life long friends: they were partners and shared everything, including their hot-blooded secretary. One day the secretary announced she was pregnant. They told her not to worry and assured her that they would pay all medical costs and would act as co-fathers when the child was born and provide all expenses thereafter. The day of delivery arrived. Both the lawyers were at the hospital pacing the floor in the waiting room. Finally one of them said, "I can't take this, I'm going down to sit in my car and wait there. Please come down and tell me as soon as the child is born!" The partner agreed to do that. About an hour later the partner approached the car with a very grave look on his face. "What happened?" asked the waiting car occupant. The other partner announced, "They were twins and mine died!"

A world convention of brewers was held in Amsterdam. The presidents of the world's greatest breweries were on hand. As usual, a convention dinner brought them together on the first evening. When asked what they would like to drink, the CEO of Miller said, "A Miller Lite, please." The president of Anheuser Busch said, "I'll have a Michelob." Adolph Coors requested a Coors. And so it went, around the long table, each president requesting a brew from his own company. Finally, the waiter came to Arthur Guinness. "And you, sir?" he queried. "I'll have a coke," was Guinness's reply. The waiter was shocked. "A COKE?!? Wouldn't you rather have a Guinness, sir?" Arthur looked at the waiter, then gestured at his companions. "If they're not drinking beer, then neither am I.".

9 Levels of Submission

1. The outright non-submissive masochist or Kinky Sensualist Not into servitude, humiliation or giving up control; just pain and/or spiced-up sensuality, on the masochist's own terms and for the masochist's own direct pleasure (i.e. turned on solely/_topped by one's own bodily sensations rather than by being "used" to gratify one's partner's sadism).
2. Pseudo-submissive non-slave Not into even playing "slave," but into other "submissive" role-playing, e.g. schoolteacher scenes, infantilism, "forced" transvestitism. Usually into humiliation, but NOT into servitude, even in play. Dictates the scene to a large degree.
3. Pseudo-submissive play slave Likes to play at being a slave; likes to feel subservient; may in some cases like to feel one is being "used" to gratify partner's sadism; may even really serve the dominant in some ways, but only on the "slave's" own terms. Dictates the scene to a large degree; often fetishistic (e.g. foot worshippers).
4. True submissive non-slave Really gives up control (only temporarily and within agreed-upon limits), but gets her/his _top satisfaction from aspects of submission other than serving or being used by the dominant. Usually turned on by suspense, vulnerability, and/or giving up responsibility. Doesn't dictate the scene except in very general terms, but still seek _toply her/his own direct/ pleasure (rather than getting one's pleasure _toply from pleasing the dominant).
5. True submissive play slave Really gives up control (though only temporarily; only during brief "scenes" and within limits) and gets _top satisfaction from serving/being used by dominant-but only for FUN purposes, usually erotic. May/may not be into pain. If so, is turned on by pain indirectly, i.e. enjoys being the object of one's partner's sadism, on which the submissive places very few requirements or restrictions.
6. Uncommitted short-term but more than play semi-slave Really gives up control (usually within limits); wants to serve and be used by the dominant; wants to provide practical/non erotic as well as fun/erotic services; but only when the "slave" is in the mood. May even act as a full- time slave for, say, several days at a time, but is free to quit at any time (or at the end of the agreed upon several days). May or may not have long-term relationship with one's Mistress, but, either way, the "slave" has the final say over when she will serve.
7. Part-Time consensual - but real slave Has an ongoing commitment to an owner/slave relationship and regards oneself as the dominant's property at all times. Wants to obey and please dom(me) in all aspects of life-practical/non erotic and fun/erotic. Devotes most of time to other commitments (e.g. job) but Dom(me) has first pick of the slave's free time.
8. Full-Time live-in consensual slave Within no more than a few broad limits/requirements, the slave regards herself/himself as existing solely for the Dom(me)'s pleasure/well being. Slave in turn expects to be regarded as a prized possession. Not much different from the situation of the traditional housewife, except that within the S/M world the slave's position is more likely to be fully consensual, especially of the slave is male. Within the S/M world, a full time "slave" arrangement is entered into with an explicit awareness of the magnitude carefully, with more awareness of the magnitude of power that is being given up, and hence is usually entered into much more carefully, with more awareness of the possible dangers, and with much clearer and more specific agreements than usually precede the traditional marriage.
9. Consensual Total Slave with NO Limits A common fantasy ideal which probably doesn't exist in real life (except in authoritarian religious cults and other situations where the "consent" is induced by brainwashing and/or social or economic pressures, and hence isn't fully consensual). A few S/M purists will insist that you aren't really a slave unless you're willing to do absolutely anything for your Dom(me), with no limits at all. I've met a few people who claimed to be no-limit slaves, but in all cases I have reason to doubt the claim.

Which are you, if any?
