This is a multi-part message in MIME format. It was an honor just to have my name in the martini glass in tribute to Alfred. Thanks to Ginny and Les for their continuing generosity and support of this wonderful list. Mickie refers to the List as my "coffee family". Wise woman. Time for a Tanqueray Martini as a slaute to Alfred. Jerry ginny wrote: <Snip>
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. I much prefer Bombay Sapphire or better yet, Magellan for martinis and I reserve the Tanqueray for mixing with tonic - but in tribute to Alfred, it's Tanqueray in the martinis this weekend. Try some Magellan sometime. It's French. It's the color of the glass bottle that Sapphire comes in. If martinis came in God Shots, this would be it (no crema though). Jerry ginny wrote: <Snip>

Now to dig through my stash and see what I have that can be offered up as suitable "Also in memory of Alfred". Gin & Les, you are a hard act to follow

It just occurred to me that it would be fitting to name the entire tradition system after Alfred. When I get around to compiling the origin of the tradition I could harvest Alfred's posts from the archive and have them as a page as well.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format. What a great idea! Renaming the tradition system after Alfred has my vote. Jerry Pecan Jim Gundlach wrote: <Snip>
