    Nothing like springtime.

    Spring will be here in two weeks. (at least we "spring forward" in two weeks). Whether or not that means the end of snow and cold remains to be seen.

    I bought some fresh swordfish today. $20 a pound. even a small piece for myself was but I am worth it. haven't decided how to prepare it yet.....maybe marinate it in some macademina nut oil, fresh ground salt and pepper.. some of my Aussie herbs (the wildfire spice blend pairs well with seafood......

    I am also baking bread today... There is nothing quite like the aroma of fresh brerad while it is baking.

    I agree...bread is my favorite thing to bake, just for that reason! Have a batch proofing right now, honey-walnut-wheat. $20 a lb for the fish? and I thought my lobster was expensive. Think I'll stick with the salmon or the fresh trout.

    This is one of my favorite recipes. I started it yesterday. It uses ice water in the recipe and you let it ferment in the fridge overnight (12-18 hours). I bake it in my clay baker which gives it an incredible crust. I am testing this recipe out with a mixture of unbleached bread flour, white whole wheat and rye. I usually make it with all unbleached bread flour so I will have to see if this recipe works with that mixture as the bread flour has a higher protein content than the other two flours). I used 2 cups of bread flour to 1/2 cup each of the other two so it should balance out. I like to find a good base recipe and then play with it to see what I cam come up with.

    honey-walnut wheat sounds good.

    some fresh bread, some good cheese, a few nice bottles of wine, some fruit and we can have a nice little lunch. anyone want to come along?

    voli-I am not sure if I could cook one. I like the roos.
    One of my side trips when I went to Sydney I saw lots of roos. We were coming back from the Blue Mountains and our tour guide gave us an unoffical stop to see them in the open. It was vry cool as there were quite a few of them hopping about.

    I don't eat meat (only chicken and fish) so I did not try any while I was there. However, just for you, you get the roo meat, and we can bar-b-que them. You can eat the roo. I'll stick to wine and cheese.

    I plan on making another trip down under next year (need another year to save up ) but it will be to Kiwi-land again. Australia is my plan for 2010.

    I love the smell of baking bread! Does anybody make a scented candle with a baking bread smell? That would be sooo much better than those evil chocolate chip cookie scented candles. All they do is make me hungry. I've considered sueing folks for false advertising when I have been to businesses where someone is burning one of those..

    After much thought, I have come to the conclusion that I don't remember what I was trying to think of..

    This is too much even for the "Weird But True".

    Naked trio gives motorists an eyeful Driver faces charges after trip in the buff from West Shore

    Judith Lavoie, Times Colonist Published: Monday, February 25, 2008

    A naked man and two naked women, allegedly involved in sex acts, gave other drivers an eyeful as they drove from West Shore, on to the Trans-Canada Highway, into the Quadra-Hillside area and then farther into Victoria yesterday.

    Several witnesses reported the progress of the vehicle and one driver followed it for a while, said Victoria police Const. Kris Rice.

    "There were some reports that they seemed to be wanting attention from other drivers as they engaged in sexual acts," he said. "It is pretty easy to see people through car windows or when they're stopped at traffic lights."

    As the reports came in, police ran the licence plate of the vehicle and Rice and his partner, Const. Jason Eagles, were waiting for the registered owner when he arrived at his home on Jackson Street.

    At that point there was a man and one woman in the vehicle because the third person, who has not yet been identified, had been dropped off, Rice said.

    Both are believed to be in their 20s. "And both were determined to be in the nude," he said.

    The female passenger was taken to Royal Jubilee Hospital under the Mental Health Act, and it is likely charges, such as driving without due care and attention, will be laid against the man, Rice said.

    It is not legal to be involved in sexual acts while driving, but the indecent acts were not witnessed by police, so a driving offence is the more likely route, he said. "We saw them driving in the nude, but there were no acts at that time," he said.

    Oh please people, get a life. No one wants to see you naked!

    whats the big deal, they have nude bungy jumping along the hiway near nanaimo every year, every vehicle going over the nanaimo river bridge is a potential accident the way their necks are streched to see the action, but of course the powers that be make a buck off it so its ok. I'm not saying its ok to do these lewd acts while driving but having naked people bungy jumping next to the hiway is just as likely to cause an accident.

    What a sad and miserable life a person must lead when the highlight of their sunday afternoon is calling 911 to report a couple naked youth in a car. My comment is to the hero who followed the car; Next time you need the police department for a real emergency, I hope they're too busy dealing with frivolous rubbish calls like this. As for Victoria Police; Is this why we need 19 more cops? To protect us from naked people? Really?

    How about charges of not producing a Drivers Licence, as I suspect there were no pockets to contain one (lol). So is it legal to drive naked, just so long as you are not engaged in sexual activity? If thats the case, as this story seems to allude, expect an eyeful if you work at a drive through window. Could make riding public transit more appealing as the height of a bus' windows permit passengers a rather un-obscured view into private vehicles. Eureka, thats the solution to reducing exhaust emissions! The slogan could be "Go Green and see Pink! (rofling)

    These days you need to close your eyes,and ears --I could go on, and on about the brazen acts of people with no reason. The public who witnessed this illegal act should come forward to help the Police.

    NAH!


    Why you should disco responsibly? / Pourquoi pratiquer le disco avec modération vous vous demandez?
    posted on Monday, February 25, 2008 by Barbara Donohue.

    Does the date July 12, 1979 jog your memory. This is the day that music historians believe as the "day disco died". The reason historians have chosen this day is because of an anti-disco demonstration that was held in Chicago. Rock station DJs Steve Dahl and Garry Meier, along with Michael Veeck, son of Chicago White Sox owner Bill Veeck, staged Disco Demolition Night, a promotional event with an anti-disco theme, between games at a White Sox doubleheader for disgruntled rock fans. During this event, which involved exploding disco records, the raucous crowd tore out seats and turf in the field and did other damage to Comiskey Park. It ended in a riot in which police made numerous arrests. The damage done to the field forced the Sox to forfeit the second game. The stadium suffered thousands of dollars in damage. This is why you must disco responsibly!

    ********

    Est-ce que le 12 juillet 1979 vous dit quelque chose? Selon les historiens en musique ce serait le jour le disco est mort. Les historiens ont choisi cette date
    en raison d'une manifestation anti-disco qui avait eu lieu à Chicago. Les DJ Steve Dahl et Garry Meier, ainsi que Michael Veeck, le fils du proprietaire des White Sox de Chicago, avaient organisé une Nuit de la demolition du disco, un évènement a titre publicitaire avec un thème anti-disco, entre deux matches des White Sox pour des supporters de rock mécontents. Durant l'évènement des disques de musique disco ont été détruits, la foule en délire a arraché et jetté les sièges sur le terrain de jeu et également causé des dégâts au Park Comiskey. L'évènement s'est achevé par une émeute et de nombreuses arrestations ont eut lieu. Les dégâts infligés au terrain de jeu ont causé l'annulation du deuxième match. Le stade s'est vu infligé des dommages s'elevant à plusieur dizaine de milliers de dollars. C'est pour cela que vous devez pratiquer le disco avec modération!

    Well sometimes, you just have to go for it anyway. (I can live on chicken broth the rest of the week to make up for blowing my budget.)

    I was skeptical too, you can't eat Skippy, but the meat is awesome, I love it, especially on a nice bed of apricot and honey glazed mashed potato.

    anyway, back to regular programming, hang on, what was this topic about again........

    I think the topic had to do with sun tanning.

    But not today due to all of the snow.

    This could become the blog thread of nothingness.

    From the beginning, how true did it become??

    I like cake. I prefer regular white cake with buttercream frosting. Sometimes, I like to put M&M's on my cake. I also like to put Red-Hots cinnamon candy on my cake. I like the way the candy merges with the icing.. When the darksuckers implode, have you ever noticed the transfer of light to dark that happens almost exponentially at the same time? Is this the result of the anti-dark vs. dark transfusion within the glass bulbs? I don't know if I've ever eaten a swordfish. Do they put those in vienna's?

    Absolutely!

    Although I tend to prefer whites. However, I do have a nice port that I bought in Australia that has not been opened yet. We had a tasting of it at the winery. YUMMMY, along with some dark bittersweet chocolate and you have a match made in heaven.
