Clearly Susan Talks About Cats

 by clearlysusan...get updates of free blog posts here 






I know this has nothing to do with glassware, but I just have to talk about Cats. I saw this video on grown men playing with little, baby kitties. These big burley men were apprehensive about meeting little tiny kittens. Their reaction is adorable just like these cute, little balls of fur. This video made me think about my own cats when they were kittens.

So much energy, bouncing and playful. Which leads me to say they do grow up and now my Simba is 19 years old, and has kidney disease and is almost blind. The doctors says she is not ready to be put down as she is in no pain, she eats well and still runs up and down the stairs. In fact she gets up and down those stairs better than I do.

Now is her time to be taken care of!  It is her turn. She provided so much joy and love to my whole family that it is only natural that I should take care of her in her old age. Hope someone takes care of me as good as I am taking care of her.

She needs plenty of fluids so I leave the water gently running from the sink faucet in the bathroom as that is the only way she will drink water. It is cold. So I provide a stool for her to jump up on and a towel for her to sit on. She stays up there sometimes and sleeps so she has easy access. I have to lead her to her bowl of food several times a day to be sure that she eats.

Oh! did I mention the vet says she has kitty dementia and Alzheimer's. I have dementia and alzheimers! This is the blind leading the blind here. Just kidding about me, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Now one more thing...the vet wanted me to stick a needle in her every week and give her fluids. I tried. I really tried, but it did not go well. I couldn't get the needle in, when I did she jumped and it came out, I stuck my self and bleed all over everywhere. Plus it is hard. So I pay $25.00 a week for a tech to come by the house and give her fluids intravenously. Better that she be mad at the tech instead of me. A small price to pay for 19 years of love.

 I have to face the inevitable and Simba will have to go to sleep. I had to put two others down and it is painful no doubt. But I have to look at the joy that she brought all of us. One day it will be me and my kids may have to go through that. It is called the cycle of life. We must celebrate the joy of life of all living creatures to ease the pain of  them being no more.

Different Types of Glassware and When Should You Use Them? by Clearly Susan


Clearly Susan's Glassware 

      

Clearly Susan's Different Types Of Glassware.....


There are various types of glassware in different shapes and sizes, all serving their own purpose. Learning which drinks belong to which glass is beneficiary to  you. They receive a higher quality drink, which in turn reflects back on you and/or your establishment.

Ensure all glassware is cleaned spotless prior to serving it to your customers. Wash glasses with warm water and a small amount of detergent (not soap), rinsing them afterwards with fresh cold water and polishing them with a suitable cloth. Hold glasses by the base or stem of the glass to avoid fingerprints.


Beer mug 
                            
The traditional beer container. Typical Size: 16 oz.
These are one of my favorite. There are just your standard beer glasses and mugs, but it is what we do with them that makes them so special. 


These glasses make great sports beer glasses with your favorite guy's sports team logo or sport hand painted. We hand paint the logo's and different sports designs such as jersey's helmets, bats, balls, nets, hockey sticks. You tell us which sports team logo and we do the rest.

Brandy snifter....The shape of this glass concentrates the alcoholic odors to the top of the glass as your hands warm the brandy. Typical Size:  5 1/2 oz.

clear crystal brandy sniffer


I wanted to show my crystal Cherrywood by Gorham. I love this pattern today even after 36 years ago. That is what we love about China and Crystal.......... they stand the test of time. The unique thing about this brandy sniffer is that it only hold 3 1/2 oz. It is adorable as it is so small. Just enough brandy after a wonderful meal, but not too much to make you feel overstuffed. I have a larger but I love the petite size








hand painted champagne glass



Champagne flute...... This tulip shaped glass is designed to show off the waltzing bubbles of the wine as they brush against the side of the glass and spread out into a sparkling mousse.Typical Size: 6 oz.








Cocktail glass 

This glass has a triangle-bowl design with a long stem, and is used for a wide range of straight-up (without ice) cocktails, including martinis, manhattans, metropolitans, and gimlets. Also known as a martini glass.Typical Size: 4-12 oz.
