geek
Hello. This is dated in the future so it stays visible, and for most people, it's probably irrelevant.

Dear potential burglar. It might occur to you that you can use my online information to work out when I'm away from home, where I live, and therefore when would be a good time for you to visit.
Yes, you probably can.
Hint - don't waste your time.
Quite apart from the friendly and watchful neighbours, I have a husband who is a professional security guard, and who likes playing with computers, networks, cameras, and mobile Internet. I don't know myself from one day to the next what he's got installed, but I do know he was getting all excited recently about being able to not only view the cameras from abroad, once the alert to say someone's been spotted has arrived, but also steer them. This isn't because we've got a lot of stuff worth nicking, he just likes to play.
We've already had one arrest resulting from this little lot (well, in so far as one can arrest a kid under 18). You don't want the next one to be you. You're a professional, right, not a kid who wants to play with a "challenge"? Go and find a softer target. There's plenty around who don't have this sort of nuisance to get in your way.

27th-Mar-2017 11:13 am - That rye bread recipe worked.
haiku impossible
 So let me make a note here for future reference, since I got exactly the result I wanted - a dense even loaf with a good taste of rye and so on, and a crisp but thin crust.
200g water (yes, g, a baking book pointed out that you can get a lot more accuracy by weighing than by using a measuring jug)
1 tbsp olive oil
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp Xylitol
Flours: 150g brown bread flour, 100g rye, 50g buckwheat
1/2 tsp yeast (no, not the whole sachet)
About 1 tsp caraway seeds (that was all I had left), 2 tsp onion seeds, 2 tsp fennel seeds
Bread maker program 3 (wholemeal), small size.

The shape was a little odd, as if there wasn't enough mix to cover the bottom of the pan. I might do a larger loaf in the same proportions next time.

It's very nice to spread goat's cheese on. But too solid (and too small) for sandwiches, but that was never the intention. I@ll have to try it with pate, too.

  • Sat, 17:40: Note to self: "hot glue gun". As the name suggests, what it produces is hot, and sticks to things. That includes your fingers!
