The Search for the Perfect Martini

I am lending my blog space to my dear friend Kendall “Scott” Mann from Greensboro. Please take the time to e-mail him at or with your ideas for his project. Again, this is Scott's project. Please respond to Scott. I will return shortly with my own continued saga of life in this here FAA.

"I finally got around to starting a book project I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Why am I telling you this? Because I would like your help. The book is called “The Search for the Perfect Martini”.

I’m sending this email to folks all over the world to find out just what constitutes a “Perfect Martini” to different people. The term “Perfect Martini” would be a metaphor for “What do you really want?” this is a tough question that most people never give a second thought to, but really should.

Here is what I am asking for. I would like for you to write me back at or with as few or as many sentences as you want, describing your “Perfect Martini”. This could be anything. One of the responses I’ve already gotten is “A boat, alone, beer and fish”. That was a bit brief, but that is what this person wanted to say! I intend to put these together in a book similar to the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series. One other thing, I will NOT use your name unless you give me specific permission to do so. I will use your location, such as Greensboro, NC.

I’m hoping to get thousands of responses and would appreciate you sending this to as many people as you can. The only way this project can really work is to get a very diverse, worldwide response. Any input you can provide is appreciated!!
