Vodka--It's Not Just For Weblogs Anymore!

Aaron Bailey has another use for the bottle of Smirnoff I keep in the freezer to make Vespers and Bloody Marys:

Unless you’re the bah-humbug type who puts up a plastic Christmas tree, you know the annoying problem of dead pine needles on the floor. An Oregon man claims a splash of vodka in his tree’s water prevents needle shedding. Some are skeptical, but I’m hoping it works. Now the question remains: What brand of vodka would my tree prefer?
