Ava Kate is off of all the hoses and IV now. Her bilirubin is rising again so if she can't knock it down on her own she'll be back under the "bun warmer" again. The up-side is she gets to wear REALLY hip shades. Hopefully I won't have an opportunity to get you a picture of that.

Our other challenge right now is getting her to consistently eat on her own. When she does nurse or bottle feed, she's awesome at it and would probably gobble up your finger if you weren't paying attention (good). However, then she's worn out for the next feeding and ends up eating her next meal from a tube (not so good).

Babies don't get to come home with a hose in their nose.

Sorry, no pics this time.

Hello to all of you in cyberspace, this is your friendly neighborhood Customer Service rep Jon Lane coming at you with the first of many liquor blogs.

At Lukas Liquor, we boast hundreds of spirits that include vodka, rum, gin, scotch, cognac, whisk(e)y, tequila, cordials, bourbon and everything else under the sun. For this post, here are a few of the newest liquors we have brought in for your enjoyment:

Hangar One Alchemist Series #1-Wasabi Infused vodka: this is the first outing for Hangar One's Alchemist series, and they came out with a bang! This green tinted vodka is at 51 proof and reflects the clean taste of a vodka with the added infusion of wasabi that makes a spectacular bloody mary.

Reyka Icelandic Vodka: this is the only imported vodka from Iceland, and if this is what they can do, then bring on the rest. Using steam from a 4,000 year old well located underneath a volcano, and then using lava rock for the filtration, this 80 proof vodka comes out clean, smooth with a crisp dryness that makes you wanting more. Perfect for a vodka/tonic.

Charbay Tahitian Vanilla Bean Rum: Charbay is based in California, but this rum comes with the full excitement of the Caribbean. Infused with 100% of the vanilla beans used, this rum is super smooth and creamy to boot. Mix with root beer, and you have a root beer float.

Pama Pomegranate Liqueur: since every other flavor of fruit was out there, pomegranate was inevitable. This liqueur is great to sip over ice, or mix in a PamaRita (follow the normal margarita recipe, but add some Pama and have a refreshing pool side beverage.)

That is it for this round, but rest assured that I will be back with more info as soon as it becomes available.
