Easter Break...


Hello Everyone!
I will be taking the rest of the week off from blogging to spend the Easter holiday and a much deserved Spring break with those I love. Robin Renee Ray's story - The Curse of the Four Leaf Clover will continue next Wednesday, as well.
I wish you and yours a truly blessed and Happy Easter!
Watch out for those peeps and don’t eat too many jelly beans!

See you next Monday,
Love,
Savannah

Mystic Monday


Hi All,
Well, I was going to post photos this week but the team had a reschedule for the reveal. I will however post them as soon as I can J
This weekend I was at the Wisconsin Rapids Expo. I did a lot of card readings and answered a few questions about the Stevens Point Paranormal Club.
I met Justin who used to be on TAPS. He invited Jennifer and I out for the night to tour the First Ward School house in Wisconsin Rapids. The school was built in the late 1800s. We arrived at 9pm and took a tour around the building. Justin and his family open their school home to tours and use the money to renovate the school themselves.
We started in the Kindergarten room. This room was worked on and redone very nicely. They had some old school desk and a teacher desk in place. Justin told us the nuns used the small classroom closet as a place to punish the "bad" children. He also said that there was activity in and around the closet. So I slowly opened the door to the closet and heard a small boy crying as he pounded on the door. He sobbed "I didn't do it. I didn't do it. He pulled my hair first."  There I was on my knees sitting on the floor trying my best to comfort this poor little boy. I assured him that I knew it wasn't his fault and that he didn't have to stay in the closet any longer, that the door was open and he could leave.
We then went through some other classrooms and up to the bell tower or attic. Up there Justin told us he had a clothes line hanging with clothes on it and turned his back to fix the line quick and when he turned back around to go back to the clothes. The clothes were all folded and in the basket. He said it wasn't even 5 minutes so it happened very quick.
We went into the basement where they reported activity and had good voice recordings. There was a boiler room, cafeteria, kitchen and a hide hole which was located under the front steps. As we toured and stopped at the "hole" I picked up on one of the nuns and had a quick conversation with her about a box she has buried there. She wanted Justin to find the box and open it to check the things she had put inside.
After our tour Jennifer and I set up in the Kindergarten room and had a few children playing with the lights on our EMF detectors and the dowsing rods, I was holding. We moved on to the basement and didn't get too much. Later we met up with Justin and he came with us to the basement, and we all just grabbed chairs went lights out and sat with our flashlight out and our EMF detectors on. We had a ghost communicate with us by tapping on the wall or door, as Justin asked it to tap once or twice. By then the time was about 1:30am, and I had to go as I was ready to sleep since I had been open to the other side all day at the expo. We said good bye to Justin and we are now trying to get the rest of the team together to go out and investigate.

Saturday turned out to be pretty amazing. J

Blessings All,
Wendy

Thirsty Thursday


Stocking your bar

You cannot make drinks out of the equipment, so you'll probably want to buy a selection of liquors and mixers too. It is impossible to make a list that "fits all" without including every possible liquor in the World, but here are a few guidelines on what to buy.
You should always choose your bar stock to suit your guests. Young people often prefer the more exotic drinks, so you will need various fruit juices and flavored liqueurs instead of the darker liquors (like whiskey) older people often prefer.
It is likely you will experience requests for drinks you cannot make, but that happen to almost every bar now and then. You can add new liquors to your bar stock later, and should learn how to mix what you have in the meantime.
A well-stocked bar should have the following, but you should consider the number and type of guests you expect before buying.

    • Gin (dry)
    • Vodka
    • Rye (or Canadian whiskey)
    • Bourbon
    • Scotch whiskey
    • Rum (light)
    • Vermouth (dry and sweet)
    • Tequila
    • White and red wine (dry)
    • Beer (lager)
    • Cognac (or other brandy)
    • Different liqueurs:
      • Advocaat (somewhat like brandy eggnog)
      • Amaretto (almond)
      • Anisette (anise)
      • Aquavit (caraway)
      • Benedictine (herbs)
      • Chambord (black-raspberry)
      • Chartreuse (herbs)
      • Contreau/Triple sec (oranges)
      • Crème de Cacao (cacao)
      • Crème de Cassis (blackcurrant)
      • Crème de Menthe (mint)
      • Crème de Violette/Crème Yvette (violets)
      • Curaçao (oranges)
      • Galliano (herbs and spices)
      • Godiva (chocolate)
      • Goldwasser (herbs and spices, flecked with gold leaf bits)
      • Grand Marnier (oranges)
      • Irish Cream (whiskey and cream)
      • Kahlúa (coffee)
      • Kümmel (caraway)
      • Mandarine Napoléon (tangerine)
      • Midori (melon)
      • Ouzo (anise)
      • Peter Heering (cherry)
      • Prunelle (plum)
      • Sabra (orange and chocolate)
      • Sambuca (wild elderberries)
      • Sloe Gin (sloe berries)
      • Southern Comfort (peach)
      • Strega (orange and spices)
      • Tia Maria (coffee)

    In addition to the liquors, you will need different mixers, flavorings and garnishes.

    • Club soda
    • Tonic water
    • Ginger ale
    • 7-Up or Sprite
    • Cola
    • Juices:
      • Tomato juice
      • Orange juice
      • Pineapple juice
      • Cranberry juice
      • Grapefruit juice
    • Bitters
    • Grenadine
    • Maraschino liqueur
    • Worcestershire sauce
    • Tabasco sauce
    • Milk
    • Coffee
    • Heavy cream
    • Cherries (maraschino)
    • Green olives (small)
    • Cocktail onions
    • Lemons, limes and oranges
    • Sugar, salt and pepper.
     
    Hope this helps all those who are thinking about setting up a place to have a few drinks with friends at home!
