I am blessed to have a wonderful family and friends….and thank you once again for all of your support and encouragement and I wish everyone health, happiness and prosperity in 2012.  Here is the recipe for our newly concocted martini!  It was delcious  🙂

    Just lovely. I was sad to learn I missed meeting you while in Negril in early Dec. Brenda told me you were at Seastar most likely when I was there, on Dec. 3rd for the buffet & show.
