I already have a couple of cookery resources that can be usefully used on a tablet. The original recipe book for my pellet grill, for a start, and recently the 40 page recipe guide for my breadmaker got too sticky to be hygenic, and was replaced with a pdf kindle sent to me by Breville.

On Tuesday night, I took a pouch out to defrost overnight in the fridge, planning to do something with it for Wednesday tea. However, Wednesday lunchtime found me with nothing else in the fridge, and it was pouring outside, so a trip to the shops was out of the question.
On my new Nexus 10, using the Kindle Android app, I have downloaded samples of a couple of comics – some of DC’s Earth 2 graphic novels, and the best-graphic-novel-in-the-world, Watchmen. In addition, I have actually bought the first of the Sandman series – something I have come across a few times, but never collected.

But seriously, it was the Nexus 10 and not the Nexus-6 I got, and I’m blown away with it. Screen is wonderful, although I know I will be perpetually polishing prints off of it (which aren’t apparent in use, but boy, when you turn it off…). The case, which I have seen reviewed as “plastic” has a grippy rubbery feel to it, which I love. Sound from the front facing speakers has far more treble than bass, as you would expect from drivers that small, but is crisp and clear.
The plot is simple – an unexplained world-wide epidemic that robs everyone of their sense of smell. Just as people are adjusting to this, taste follows.
For the last few months, I haven’t had time for hand-baking, so have been making good use of my breadmaker – which despite some naysayers, makes a very decent loaf of bread.
