Martini Quotes

"I'm not talking a cup of cheap gin splashed over an ice cube.

I'm talking satin, fire and ice; Fred Astaire in a glass; surgical cleanliness, insight.. comfort; redemption and absolution. I'm talking MARTINI.


About Me

   Having reached the half century mark, I suppose a certain mental wanderlust developed in me.  Some would call it a mid life crisis, but there is no crisis, just the want to do something more, something different.  While my work as a physician has been rewarding, the many years of study and countless call nights without much sleep have exacted a bit of a toll.  Medicine is not the same, too many outside business interests.  I want to get back to something that retains a lost innocence, something not so easy, maybe requiring some work, but is fulfilling none the less.

     I decided to climb up on the hobby horse so to speak and have a go at putting pen to paper.  Well, actually nobody uses pen and paper to write anymore.  In any event,  I have always enjoyed a good read and wondered if writing might not just be the thing for me.  A blog seemed like a good place to start. It's a little unfamiliar, unscripted, and unnervingly individual, just how I like things. Now what to write about???

      A writer should, and in fact can, only write about topics which he has an intimate knowledge of and passion for.  Now for Hemingway it was war, fishing, and bull fights all interfaced with voluminous amounts of alcohol.  Fitzgerald ushered in the Jazz Era, the roaring twenties, with the parties, the money, and oh yes, the voluminous amounts of alcohol.  A theme emerges.  

     Apart from my life as father and husband, I savor two things in particular- cycling and a good Martini.  As much as I love everything cycling, there are already innumerable blogs, posts, etc. written on the subject.  So I thought I could share my zeal for that most illustrious cocktail, the Martini, with various witticisms.  So armed with a Google account and "Blogging for Dummies" the journey begins....
