Weekend Reflections--Cockta's still here.

Cockta is a soft drink created in the early 1950s by chemical engineer Emerik Zelinka, an employee of the Slovenijavino research labs. He and his team wanted to create a refreshing drink using local herbs, while at the same time making it original rather than trying to copy similar foreign drinks.  Its main ingredient is rose hip, which probably is why I don't care for it, since I don't like rose hip tea either.

And please note that ironically it's served here in a Coke glass!  My grandson Luka is enjoying a bottle of formula in the background. He can try Cockta later on.

Fall is here

There's a nip in the air, people are wearing jackets, and morning mist is common. No leaves changing color yet, but I am looking forward...
