***  New uses for old ships:

 

I’m looking out my window at the Hotel Jutlandia at the former ferry Spectrum of Scandinavia.  It is now, as I have learned, converted to a disco (although I have not observed any disco balls turning or the sound of Heat wave blasting across the street).  But it makes me think of how many ships have been converted to something else after their seagoing days were over.  Can you offer some examples?  Responses will be posted in the September issue of “Your Very Next Step.”

BTW, the August issue was just posted at www.yourverynextstep.com.

Next time you use a lemon for juice, cut up the peel in strips and put in the freezer.  For the microwave martini, use a glass without any metallic rim, etc.  Take a frozen strip of lemon peel, place in glass and microwave for 11 seconds.  This vaporizes the essential oils and coats inside of glass.  Rubs twist around rim.  Add ice, vodka/gin (55/50), or whatever, isolated molecule of dry vermouth….your guest will be amazed that you made a martini in the microwave…sort of.
