Venice,

Could this possibly be a cleansing solution to prepare one's gastrointestinal tract for more contemporary libations?

Would you mind if I left the rhubarb and vinegar out and substituted about a 2 oz. of rum?

OK Venice,

Here's a bon voyage drink for you:

2oz Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
5oz Coke Classic

Mix, and pour into a double old-fashioned glass, over ice.

To spice it up: for the ladies, add an umbrella; for the men, add another shot!

Actually Dean, my father is in Portland right now. He is at the RCI call center they have over there. He is the employee benefits guy that sits with people to go over their plans for insurance and 401K, ect...

Dave,

I had no idea RCCL had a call center here in town! You think I would have heard something.

Your dad must be enjoying the weather up here these days -- sunny, 80, and no humidity!
