Happy 238th, Jane Austen!

Just a quick note to wish the incomparable Jane Austen a very Happy 238th Birthday!! May we all look as good at her age...or at least be as lovingly remembered ;).

And, of course, we must have a toast in her honor, right?!

Here's an easy recipe for Regency Rum Punch:
1 1/2 oz. dark rum
1/4 oz. lime juice
2 oz. orange juice
2 oz. pineapple juice
Dash of bitters
Add grenadine for color
Sprinkle with nutmeg

Thanks for the awesome stories, Jane!

Thank you so much for your message, and I'm delighted that you liked the treat!! And I totally agree with you on the wonderfulness of Jane Austen :).
As for the word verification, unfortunately, Blogger implemented this automatically -- it wasn't anything I'd set up. I've noticed it on all of the Blogger-run sites I've visited, and I think it's a hassle too... And I have to type two verifications whenever I comment on my OWN blog as well! So, if there's anyone who knows how to get rid of it, I'd be happy to give that a try!!!
Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
