It’s My Birthday – with @IntoxicatedZ

I’m a Virgo–My birthday was September 11. I know, I know–bad birthday. But, I still always enjoy my day and often have an extended celebration starting from the weekend before.

Of course, I am a true Virgo all year, but this year I also had some paraphernalia and delicious cocktail recipes to go along with my Virgo attitude, thanks to the Intoxicated Zodiac. Gwen Sutherland Kaiser, owner of Intoxicated Zodiac, is a mixologist, specializing in astrology. She creates delicious cocktails with ingredients suited to each sign. Her website has drink recipes, baroscopes and zodiac sign gear.

I first ran into Gwen at the Under the Stars with Susan Miller & Todd English preview event and she was nice enough to send me a couple Virgo items:

The Virgo Woman

One thing you need to know about a Virgo woman – she has guts and lots of them! It doesn’t mean that she is not as shy and as reserved as she seems to be. It’s just that she can do anything and everything for the people she loves. By love, she means real love, no other type of love exists for her. A Virgo female is a complete woman! She has all the charms and tricks that any other female has, but she is not weak. Infact, she has quite a determination and can do anything if she sets her mind to it.

Heirloom Tastes Better

What is an Heirloom Tomato?

An heirloom is generally considered to be a variety that has been passed down, through several generations of a family because of it’s valued characteristics.

Commercial Heirlooms: Open-pollinated varieties introduced before 1940, or tomato varieties more than 50 years in circulation.

Family Heirlooms: Seeds that have been passed down for several generations through a family.

Created Heirlooms: Crossing two known parents (either two heirlooms or an heirloom and a hybrid) and dehybridizing the resulting seeds for how ever many years/generations it takes to eliminate the undesirable characteristics and stabilize the desired characteristics, perhaps as many as 8 years or more.

Mystery Heirlooms: Varieties that are a product of natural cross-pollination of other heirloom varieties.



How cool is that!
