We are seemingly short on holidays this week; likely because we are heading into Memorial Day, so the holiday makers wanted to give us some time to rest up for the big start of summer. But today is National Rescue Dog Day, so I want to see all your pups on the Twitter machine.

I didn’t know I could just “be” a millionaire. Let’s make that happen.

World Paloma Day
Recipe for a paloma, the national drink of Mexico:
2 oz Tequila
1⁄2 oz fresh lime juice
Grapefruit soda, to top
Garnish – lime wedge or grapefruit wedge
Add tequila and lime juice to a highball glass filled with ice.
Fill with grapefruit soda and stir briefly.
I don’t know what grapefruit soda is, but that sounds delish.

I occasionally still play this with real cards. Old school.
