Hey Clint,

I have both his fountain and the glasses. I like 'em. The glasses "sorta" fit. You gotta cant 'em at about a 10 degree angle to get them under OR you can put the fountain on a base such as a floor tile.

A minor drawback that is no biggie, IMHO.

Do the glasses from Markus fit under the small fountain? I saw someone else ask but never was sure what the answer was. I jumped the gun and ordered anyways. What am I to expect?

A clean, decent, no-nonsense potential absinthe fountain. Cheap. Just needs a base. Any takers?

without actually having one to try, suppositorally, the 'ice tubes' are the best thing i know of yet to insert in your carafe...

Head's purposes aside, I think the easiest and nicest solution for narrow-necked fountains/carafes is to use the mini "gumdrop" shaped ice "cubes". These are very nice for cocktails, and perfect for fountains. You can probably pick up a couple of trays for a couple of bucks.

Head, this reminds me of a couple on "So Graham Norton" who used a frozen sausage in a creative way, but it got stuck in her (picture a tongue stuck to a light pole in the winter). I think her parents interrupted them, and the dog ran off with the sausage.

Thanks Imp! I was looking for
something like that to remedy
another type of narrow opening.

For the Bottle with spigot users, & carafe users, an interesting little gadget I found in the supermarket for keeping the water chilled.

Same thing as the small fountain being sold by Markus. But pricier.

Just noticed.. Markus lowered the prices for the fountains he's selling.

It's just cold water. Those Portuguese jugs have one flaw, a neck too narrow for ice cubes, so I just keep mine in the refrigerator. The glass is a light transparent blue-green.

Perruche...

That fountain ROCKS! Is it frosted glass or is it just real cold water?

I think I'll paint mine...maybe with skulls.

Perhaps the camera is telling me how I'm going to die.

Wolfgang,

Ever have a Rorschach test? I'd love to know what you see in those ink blots.

Yes, I can kind of see a skull.

How cryptic.

Funny, when you look at the F.Guy label on the first pic, you can see a skull on it... (well at least on this screen).
