I'm pretty much the weirdest thing in my kitchen, although sonetimes I get asked why I keep water in large canning jars in the fridge. To drink, duh.

I keep water in my fridge also!

I also keep a can of tuna, and a couple of cans of fruit in the fridge.

People think that is strange but, it makes sense to me.

Great minds think alike, maybe mine is purple too!

It's just better cold and I find the flavor is better if I keep it in a glass container than if I keep it in a plastic one.

To All Posters,

Just wish to thank all of you for your very interesting replies on subject.

I apologise for not sending Thank You notes to each of you however, I am twin child sitting for my daughter and her husband ... and thus, time is of essence ... Have to keep these 2 five year olds busy as bees, otherwise, we have Dennis the Menace and The Little Rascal ...

*** Just a quick note to Barbara: the Swedish have some lovely Christmas Decorations, quite unusual ... I had been to Stockholm in 2006, to visit an Aunt of my Mom, who though she was Swiss French, she was married to a Swede and lived in Stockholm ... Very nice anecdote and thanks for sharing such a lovely item to have in your home ...

Thanks again.
Happy Holidays.
Margi.

This is for Margi Cintrano

Just thought I'd post a picture of the clown bottle that holds the "magic formula." He sits prominently on a shelf near the kitchen door. He's not completely full because we had to administer some of the healing elixir to soothe a grandchild the other day.

Looks like like Centerba Toro (140 proof).
