It was my birthday last week and my daughter gave me this beautiful, metal crown..which by the way made an excellant centerpiece for our family gathering. My family is my crowning glory! I love you all.
We had white wine to toast with, and here is a
WHITE WINE PUNCH from author Robert Ackart.

Thanks to Olga's tip I've found your most extraordinary blog. The initial idea and 50 recipes are great, but then you do manage to make the blog alive, more and more. Your dad would be most proud.
Of course I am becoming an instant follower too to such a jewel.
Olga, thanks to you too!
