Did you know Google can help you plan your next vacation? Of course you did. But this little trick is different. Pull out your favorite mobile device (it only works on mobile devices), type in the search bar your dream destination, then type "vacation" after it (without the quotes). What pops up will show you information on your dream location.

What's summer without a summer cocktail? In the winter, I tend to drink dark beers, preferably stouts. Come summer though, I prefer a cocktail, usually a gin and tonic. This summer, I think I'm going to make Pimm's cup my summer cocktail! I think this is the recipe I'll try.
Well enough warm weather dreaming and back to winter. Enjoy your weekend!
