** The pillow case story...Bob is my boss at Seattle Golf Club and when I asked for his mom's recipe he told me this funny story. He called her asking her for it and she recited the ingredients. When they got to the pillow case, Bob asked what that was for. She replied "Well, I have never tried it but why can't you use it to strain the coffee?" Bob laughed and said "What about all the chemicals from washing the pillow case, Mom?" She replied, "No biggie honey, the Everclear will kill anything." There you go.
