Garden to table in about 20 minutes, and quite delicious.
Month: May 2012
During the “wettest drought in UK history”, I must admit I’ve not been doing anything out there, or even thinking about it much. During my negligent period, there have developed a scattering of weeds in the gravel, but these pulled easily, as the membrane stops them taking hold.
This may sound heretical for someone who plays with BBQ, but I am actually not a fan of ribs – or anything that you nibble from a bone, for that matter; such as wings or drumsticks. If I can’t put it in a bun, or stick a fork in it, I’m not really interested.
The European Court of Human Rights has reaffirmed its decision that the UK must comply with ruling that prisoners cannot be arbitarally disenfranchised.
What I am using it for is to import selected twitter posts into Wordpress (from which they eventually reach LJ). I say selected, but in fact, I only use Twitter for one thing – my Kindle. The Kindle allows you to rate books and share comments via Twitter, and although I am not interested in Twitter at all, I thought it would be a way to direct content here.
Having finished BZRK yesterday (which I thorougly enjoyed), I was reminded of Blood Music somewhat, even though the books are vastly different. I had an immediate desire to read it again, and didn’t have a clue what box my ragged copy was stored in. So I threw caution to the wind and Kindled it.
In my earlier post, I commented that my first test 3D video was a little shaky. I put this down to it being shot in a bit of a hurry, as it had just started raining.
I know that some people have the opinion that Dropbox is not as secure as it claims, but I’ve read up on the issues, and am really not that concerned, for the uses I am going to put it to. Being mainly a quick and easy way to dump photos/videos off of my smartphone and netbook when I am travelling, so I don’t have to worry about memory.
Up until this year, you could leave garden/kitchen waste for collection either by purchasing authorised bags (which cost 50p per bag), or by having a big green bin.
Of course, I had to try it, and I can report…
