Vodka slows aging…

In cut flowers. Seriously, a little vodka in the water works as a preservative, interfering with the plants ripening process. So, they last longer and look fresher. Hmmmm… I know what your thinking. I’ll start the research/experiments and let you know the ‘vodka effect’ on people.

    Tammy, I was linked to your blog from Andrea Bellamy’s blog Heavy Petal. There is a picture of a Houseboat garden on the sunshine coast. Could you give me any details on where that was or if you know anything else about it? I’m planning to build my own and I would like to learn from the experience of others.Thank you,ChrisVictoria BC

    Hi christopher,I don’t know too much about the houseboat. It’s in Gibsons BC Right on the main dock by Molly’s Reach. The photo is of the houseboat and a portion of the dock that the garden has expanded onto. That’s about all i know.. just snaped the pic because i thought Andrea would like it. If you do end up in Gibsons try the water from the city fountain – it’s the best ever!

    I completely agree with Tammy that Vodka slows aging. It is said that pouring a citrus-flavored soda or an alcohol like vodka into the water in which the cut flowers are kept will prolong the time flowers stay fresh. Floriculturists confirm that in the correct proportion, this mixture will keep a bouquet bright, providing it water and food. And what about your second research Vodka effect on people.Vodka can be paired with food and cigar.I choose to Buy Cigars online.

Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
Woke up at 1am on my Bali Birthday to do the Batur Volcano hike. What a great day. Very steep incline that varied from road, to lava rock, to volcanic clay. We hiked up in the dark so we had no idea how steep some of the drops were until we hiked back down in the daylight! Mt. Batur is an active volcano about 1,770 metres above sea level. Our hike up took about 2 hours. Base camp is about midway up the mountain, so our gain was 900 metres, 13 km. View at the top is of Mt Agung, another active volcano. #mtbatur #volcano #hike #bali #mtagungbali #birthdayfun #thisis50
I’m back in Bali. After a little beach exploration in Kuta, we’re now settled in Ubud for a bit. Hit one of my favorites @clearcafeubud and now ready for morning yoga @theyogabarn followed by a sound healing session at @pyramidsofchi today. Best day ever. #bali #beachwalk #ubud #kuta #soundhealing Yes, those are recycled water bottles made into a Christmas tree.
