Mara I'm sorry I suck at math.. what does that mean. The last time I redeemed was when I had 1000 posts? or 1000 posts ago?

I think maybe 1000 posts ago seems about right? What is the accurate amount of posts I have? Where can I find that?

Sorry for all the questions Mara. I hope you had a nice nap!

Halo, the last time you redeemed was at 2,800 posts.

 

 

LadyV, you redeemed at 1,000. And you're now up to 3,200, so you have 2,200 to redeem! That equals 22 x $5 = $110 dollars in credit! Woohoooo! Shop away! :D

 

See? Money Fairy! :moneyfairy13: LOL!

LOL! It's important that you guys know how much we value each of you as a member of the community and how helpful it is for us when you post reviews. A lot of potential customers who are not forum members read the reviews, and your opinions, both positive and negative, help them decide what to order. So we're just giving back a little for your help..like a sales commission. Plus, sharing your life and experiences with us in this forum? It makes life worth living. I'm madly in love with you all and feel extremely blessed to be a small part of your lives.

You know, liz, I am a martini snob after growing up with my Dad. I just can't call anything a martini if it has fruit stuff in it. Well, aside from olives! I think Daddy's recipe is a WWII thing, because one of Mr. Matt's uncles made his martinis for us about 18 years ago, and it was the same recipe. Uncle Frank made his by the pitcher, and my Dad made his by the glass. I go by the glass. It's just a jigger (big) of your favorite gin, a half-cap (using a small bottle) of white vermouth (we usually use Martini & Rossi), 2 drops of spanish olive brine, and a spanish olive. With ice. Of course, if you want it DRY, the vermouth part has to be altered. You pick up the vermouth bottle, keep it *across the room* from the gin and all, and SHOW it to the martini. Heh. I do dry sometimes. B) Our friend Wayne, who is the same generation, uses onions instead of olives in his martinis, and I love his, too. The folks who are in their 80s-into-their-90s really knew how to party. They taught me well! Heeeeeee!!!

P.S. So I call the family recipe the James M. Saulsbury Memorial Martini.

My old buddy Kevin McCarthy would always order a Martini with a packet of oyster crackers on the side, which I thought was hysterical because the bartenders always had to check..."Excuse me, did you say Oyster Crackers?!" :lol: Anyway, I tried a taste of one once and it was SOOO STRONG I couldn't swallow it. Yowza!

It's important that you guys know how much we value each of you as a member of the community and how helpful it is for us when you post reviews. A lot of potential customers who are not forum members read the reviews, and your opinions, both positive and negative, help them decide what to order.

I wanted to comment, as a member of the Team, on this aspect of posting.

 

Very few communities will actually reward you for providing good quality content in regards to posting and I know we're all grateful to Mara for doing just that, but I cannot stress enough to everyone on the board how important it is to have those reviews, not only for new members, but anyone considering a particular scent, because it's difficult to consider such a purchase in a vacuum, as it were. So I encourage everyone to post reviews - even if you don't think you're any good at describing scents - because the more someone knows about a scent - even just knowing whether people like it or not - is so essential to the experience. Especially the guys who have joined, even if you don't post regularly, even if discussing a scent seems kind of strange to you, your feedback is valuable. Reviews should really be the heart of the community, because that's the reason we're all here, whether it's for the fragrances, the pheros, or both. And we want to support Mara in her endeavors so we can continue to enjoy her generosity and her genius.

 

When you earn those credits with good quality content you fully absolutely deserve a reward! :money1668:

YUMMY!!! Gods, especially with the cheese-stuffed olivos!!!

Now, THAT'S what I'm TALKIN' about!!! Ladies, these martinis of which we speak are the REAL ones. I do not eschew fruits and alcohols--I certainly consume enough of them together--I just can't call 'em martinis. Martinis need to put HAIR on your CHEST!!! Or wait. Spikes on our nipples, perhaps...?

YEAH. What you said! :yeahthat::yeahthat::yeahthat: It is seldom that I *don't* consult reviews when buying a bottle. All the experiences and conclusions of our community are utterly valuable. Think I'll go post a review, too.

Ditto. At the very least I do compare/contrasts on potential purchases every time. That said, I definitely appreciate anyone who's taken the time to write their experiences down.

TS, I've got to ask--WHO is that in your avi? Is it you? And if it *is,* how did you do the finger-balance thingie? It's a great photo. B)

A classic martini like I grew up with that my dad always drank. My dad had a friend who told the story of how he made the ultimate dry martini. Back in the days of above ground nuclear testing he attached a bottle of vermouth to the framework holding the device. After it detonated he waved the glass with the gin in it out in the air.

 

BUT Vodka is my choice,

 

Mine too. I keep a couple bottle in the freezer.

 

Martinis need to put HAIR on your CHEST!!! Or wait. Spikes on our nipples, perhaps...?

 

Whichever ...
