Yours for Good Fermentables is a blog about beer and wine and spirits, all enjoyable accompaniments to a good life. I don't usually post on personal matters.
But, today, I will.
My mother, Genovaite Cizauskas, has died. Known affectionately as "Gene," she lived a long, rich, and global adventure-filled life.
Later in life, Gene loved her animals: her two faithful companions, Emma Dog (a rescue) and Ethel Mae (a boisterous beagle). She was never reticent to tell friends and strangers all about those two and their escapades.
So, in my mother's honor, I ask you to consider making a contribution to your local animal shelter or rescue association, or to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). There is a donation page there, in Gene's memory.
Yours for good fermentables,
P.S. Gene was known to enjoy the occasional tipple. She could mix a mean martini.
