Those three attempts were because I'm having trouble resizing the photo. I got it to the size I wanted as a bmp but it attached as a link that went nowhere. I got it down with infranview and posted it. Then it was freakin' sideways. Got it ok finally, but the screen area on the computer I used is set to like1280 x 14 something, so it looks smaller. On my other computer, it's 800x600, so it's huge( as I was !'ed to see, my I look, well you know). I'll f with it tommorrow. I need to catch up on some zzzz's.
It's not whether the glass is half empty or half full, it's whether you are pouring or drinking.

Ok, I feel almost normal again, so I fixed the picture.

Bill, I got the foutain off ebay for $10. Did a search for a spigot and I found it. By the way, that's not the only dead snake in that picture :shock:

Drunk again, eh? I fixed the picture last night. Did you check before you replaced it?

I looked at it and thought I was seeing things..but I sized it down anyway. I'm surprised the picture is still viewable. Blast, I want/need a drink. I like it when I don't feel like a loon. Cheers all! :cheers:

My glasses did arrive today (along with our LdF order), but no one was here to receive the package so they left them at the office. They will be eagerly awaiting the next Georgia gathering...

I got mine. The glasses showed up in perfect condition and are exactly as described, only much nicer. They really have a nice feel to them.

Don't listen to those who would water down ahhh burn up the true history of absinthe, rather research the facts to determine the significance of the Green Fairy. Those who can't do it themselves, get their kicks trying to undermine those who can.

Sigh :(
Any day now for me, I suppose.
I wonder if my comb will fit in the reservoir.

Much Thanks To Hiram!! I got my glasses the other day and though a bit taller then the ones from ALANDIA they are just beautiful!!

Surely the company who makes them makes makes other styles as well, I would love to have Champagne flutes. How does one contact them to see the rest of the line?

I don't think there is a rest of the line. These are custom made.

Glad everybody likes them!

I opened up my box last night - they are beautiful. Thank you Hiram. Now, once my liver shakes out the last of Sunday night, I'll fill them up!

Well I think I did that wrong, sorry. (the quote thing, I mean). If any body has any ideas or tips for contacting the distributor or manufacture of the glasses let me know please. The more i use the absinthe glasses the more i want a set of flutes, they are SOOOO nice!!

Is this similar to what you're looking for?

And if that "is" the glass you are looking for, since the link wasn't provided for the product itself, I tracked it down to this:

http://www.cheftools...?number=03-0081

Price: $8.95 each.

As it just so happens, "Chef Tools" is a company here in Seattle that is run by a friend of mine.

They are part of the Perigord line and made by Cristallerie La Rochere, the same folks that make the molded reservoir glasses. They are also available at Sur la Table and through our own myownmolly at www.maisoui.net.
