  4. P.S. Saw the commercial for the yummy vodka’s late last night on a channel way up there on the channel chain (bad “B” movies like “The Revenge of Jaws”) while wrapping and had to laugh as the commercial following the marshmallow – whiped cream vodkas’ was for some silly contraption to enhance your love life….me thinks martini’s for world peace! Merry Christmas!!!!!!
