Skating with Dave

Second Time Around

Fun story behind this video. years ago I had a longer version where Dave tossed me in the pool after we skated, but the powers at YouTube yanked it. Why? Well, I used a song from their “Audio Swap” library only to find they nixed it and pulled all videos that used anything from the library. And, they did so with our notifying anyone.

Five years later, I notice it’s gone. A few months ago, I ran across my skating footage and decided to try to piece it back together. But some of the clips magically vanished, such as all clips of me in the pool. At the same time I hooked up with JukeDeck in London, who created software that lets people create their own songs. They sent me a slow and a fast one to try out, and I immediately thought I’d use it for my newly formed skating video.

Fast Forward

Turned out the slow one was too slow and the fast one was too fast. But, when I sped up the clips the skating fit the song.

Let me know what you think!

Got Cancer?

Diana’s Famous Citrus Tini Cocktails

Healthier homemade Martinis

Fresh fruit can turn an ordinary adult beverage into a tasty drink worthy of calling a snack–even a healthy Round snack–okay let’s call it healthier–after all liqueur is not really considered healthy.

That is why it is good to know that it is what you do most of the time, not some of the time that matters most.

And now for the recipes

Enjoy the Round Lady’s original fruity cocktails, as  shown in the latest  Citrus-Tini’s — refreshingly tasty video.

Tangerine Citrus-Tini

(Serves two)

2 tangerines
1 orange
1 Meyers lemon (orange variety (or use an extra tangerine)
1/4 pear
2 ounces vodka
1 sprig fresh mint leaves

Squeeze juice from 2 tangerines, 1 orange and 1 orange Meyers lemon (or use an extra tangerine). Add ice in shaker, 3/4 full, then add juice, and vodka. Shake mixture, put 3 pear strips in each chilled martini glasses, and pour drink. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and serve immediately.

For a taller, more fruity single version of the Citrus-Tini, double the citrus, omit one ounce of vodka, pour into a bigger glass, and double up the pear strips.

Big Tequila tangerine Citrus-Tini

(Serves one)

This drink is for tequila lovers. As with the vodka version, you can make a taller drink by doubling the citrus, omitting one ounce of tequila, pouring into a bigger glass, and doubling up the pear strips.

2 tangerines
1 orange
1 lime
1/3 to 1/2 pear
2 ounces tequila
1 sprig fresh mint leaves

Squeeze juice from 2 tangerines, 1 orange and 1 lime. Add ice in shaker, 3/4 full, then add juice, and tequila. Shake mixture, add 5 to 7 pear strips in chilled wine glass, and pour drink. Optional: add ice to drink. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and serve immediately.

Note: Drink responsibly and do not drive after imbibing on any alcoholic beverage–meaning do not drive even after enjoying one Citrus-Tini!
