Thanks ladies. I seem to have a temperature, but don't know how much 'cause we can't find the thermometer.

Gee taxy, I hope you feel better quick. I suppose your temp isn't too high as long as you're not hallucinating!

Today I came across a shot glass that is marked Approved L.L.B.O.

I've done some snooping on the internet and found that LLBO stands for
Liquor Licensing Board of Ontario.

Does anyone know if these were required for Canadian bars and restaurants, how old it might be etc.....

Just curious, I never have noticed this before.

Thanks, B

Just arrived home after several hours in Paris....Tennessee, that is.

We drove down to do some shopping for our lunatic dog - a new collar - and to enjoy a barbecue sandwich at our favorite barbecue joint, Trolinger's. We also brought home a slab of ribs for supper. Yum!!

Back in the early 70's I bartended and we were required to use those to show the customer that they weren't getting ripped off. With more and more automated dispensers they gind of disappeared.

I'l bet the measurements are in oz. rather than mL.

Yes it is measured in ounces, 1 oz., 1 1/4oz. 1 1/2oz. and full to the lip 2 oz.

I'm not sure where it came from, my Mother or oldest Brother must have pinched it on a trip to Canada!

Thank you both for your help on this!

Those are Imperial ounces.
1 Imperial fluid ounce = 28.4131 ml.
1 US fluid ounce = 29.5735 ml.

Debating if I should start cutting into some gorgeous material. Maybe we don't need a new comforter.
The old one is already broke in. Dogs love it.
