Note: Article I, section 4, of the Constitution was modified by section 2 of this amendment. In addition, a portion of the 12th amendment was superseded by section 3.

Section 1.

The terms of the President and the Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January, and the terms of Senators and Representatives at noon on the 3d day of January, of the years in which such terms would have ended if this article had not been ratified; and the terms of their successors shall then begin.

Section 4.

The Congress may by law provide for the case of the death of any of the persons from whom the House of Representatives may choose a President whenever the right of choice shall have devolved upon them, and for the case of the death of any of the persons from whom the Senate may choose a Vice President whenever the right of choice shall have devolved upon them.

Foodie Corner – 2018 – Post #3 – Sparkling Iced Tea

Foodie Corner – 2018 – Post #3 – Sparkling Iced Tea

What can you do to iced tea to make it even more refreshing?

My two cents, but please share yours:

Recently, I’ve been making sparkling iced tea.

In a microwave-safe measuring cup, heat 1.5c of plain water for 2 minutes. Dunk in 4 teabags (or the loose-tea equivalent using a tea ball) of your favorite tea blend and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Discard the teabags. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until icy.

Fill a tall glass with equal parts of the strong tea and chilled sparkling water. Add a couple of drips of agave nectar, if you like sweet tea. Enjoy.
