I just discovered the most thirst-quenching drink ever

Boil 6 cups of water. Pour it into a juice container.

Drop 3 teabags into the hot water, as follows (some variation permitted. This is what I used):

1 Dry Desert Lime (Numi brand)
1 Green Tea
1 Wildberry Delight (Tetley)

Leave it for an hour. Then put it in the fridge (with the teabags still in it). Wait for a few hours, or overnight or whatever.

Pour yourself a glass when you're thirsty. You won't believe how good it tastes.

Roget's Thesaurus

I consider it a loss that most young people today will never have an opportunity to marvel at how intelligently and intuitively Roget constructed his thesaurus. I use, and am grateful for, the on-line one at thesaurus.com, even paying for the privilege to use it all year long, but I was looking at the actual book today and appreciating its creator anew. You can climb into Roget's Thesaurus and get satisfyingly tangled in the threads for hours.
