Drum lessons were quite good. Now if only I would practice more regularly. But, I am getting better.

I made some Baklava for a gathering I'm going to this afternoon. I am pleased with it. I cut down on the sugar a bit, I used 3 parts unsalted butter to one part salted butter, and the nuts are a mixture of walnuts, almonds and pistachios (4:2:1 ratio of nuts respectively). I have packed the baklava and it is ready for transport. Done and done! I used clover honey. And I think I prefer using ground cinnamon in the syrup instead of just cinnamon sticks. I may have to try the ol' stick method again later to compare.

I fetched my alcohol and distilled water and mixed 'em up. Yes, that works great as an eye glass cleaner. I have made a bottle up to take to work for when I smudge my glasses there, and soon I'll refill the original bottle of cleaner I got from the optometrist when I purchased my last pair of specs. QED.

Now to go take care of some other things before I head out for the forseeable future.

I hope everyone is having a grand Saturday!

What's the ratio of water to alcohol?

2 to 1!

So a 60 cent jug of distilled water and a large bottle of rubbing alcohol will last you a long, long time!
