Glad that you liked the barley waters article. I find it rather an 
acquired taste
but then I grew up on sweetened ice tea and  soft drinks. I tend to also 
want all
drinks iced to the max.
I'll try and get it to you in a version for the Florilegium soon but I 
have a couple of things
that I must finish first. I want to add back in the various parts that 
were cut from the TI article too.
There was more material on modern commercial barley water that was left 
out of the article.
I have deadlines approaching, so I need to work on some other stuff 
first though.
I have also been under the weather with a severe sinus infection so
research and writing has slowed to a standstill.
And we are counting the days and hours until high school ends; for the 
first time ever the
seniors are required to take finals and be in school clear up to the 
last day when they
must attend mandatory parties and activities like senior night. There's 
a lot of grumbling going on.
