The drink pick for this 2013 Holiday Season Celebration is the

Fuji Apple Cocktail.

The Fuji apple is a hybrid between the Red Delicious and the Virginia Ralls Genet. They are sweeter and crispier than most apples and with refrigeration can remain fresh for up to a year. Presently they are the fourth favorite apple in the US.

I am sure you will enjoy the juice of these apples especially when they are juiced with this recipe.

I can be a little nuts when it comes to properly shipping out prototypes, but secondary to getting the prototype shipped on time is getting it there without damage.

In my experience with SLA models, I have come across many different delicate features and sizes that make it difficult to ship safely. There are many packing techniques to use such as double boxing and building custom cradles to protect delicate features. Since every part is different I have found that using packaging peanuts is an extremely effective tool to use to ship most parts.

Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall keep the prototypes from being made. Unfortunately electric power will.  Hurricane Sandy hit our area, devastated our coast line and ripped apart the power system in our area.

We tried to make it to work.
