Just filtered and bottled some oil I prepared last year.
Smells good!

It contains rosemary, thyme, garlic and chillies (the hottest variety),

I cut the stuff, put it in a big glass jar, top up with olive oil, leave in a cool dark place for 3 weks and then run it through a sieve to remove the herbs and then through tea filters to remove the most viscous stuff.

A few drops of that oil on a big steak just a minute prior to removing it from the barbecue will do.

It is quite spicy and has a good taste.

Little things that make me happy.

congrats on the dice, I started with a single set many many years ago, and I now have a prized collection of weird and wonderful dice.

My happy for today was going through and cleaning up some of my email inboxes brought me to a small treasure trove. Back when I was using public access computers at my job because I didn't have a computer of my own, I used to mail myself chapters of stories I was writing.

It's so weird to read the stories I was writing back then. Some I forgot I started writing. Some I thought I hadn't started writing yet but there it is in the 2011 folder. And some I would have said I came up with the idea 4 years ago but in the 2008 folder there is a story beginning that seems like it was written for that exact story (though it may be something with just a similar start to it).

But over all the thing that most startles me is the style. It's so different than my current writing. Some of it is actually quite... pretty. I kinda wish I could have read an entire book by that writer. Such depth and feeling in the scene crafting.

It also teaches me that I was way too hard on myself back then, things I thought were too terrible to finish seem wonderful to me now.

A very strange day. I was the participants of the conference on tourism and travel. I'll be there to speak.
Sorry for the errors, rudeness and stupidity. It's not me, this online translator. Really convenient?

I watched my old copy of The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. good movie. I want to make Adolphus' gun. I don't care for guns as decoration usually but the absurd design of this one appeals to me.

Ah. But there are so many varieties of chiles. Yours may no be the hottest.   ;)

I love introducing that movie to people and watching them try and figure out what is real and what is a story.

I am happy because after putting it off for two years I made a video.  A foul mouthed fairy tail video that is helping me to learn how to make a better one next time.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=aMI2GIknVOE

When a man's gotta go, a man's gotta go.

And obviously when a woman's gotta go, a woman's gotta go.

But when a child's gotta go, you gotta pull over as soon as possible.

Appeared in my head. No idea where it came from.

There was a Drozdov. That we have of the cult figure from the Soviet era. He led a television program about animals. He is now very old. I guess it's like Larry king, only about animals.

Week off work on holiday!
Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

Now you just need to get a few swamp dragons to make it complete.

I met Freelance Electronics Engineer Mike Harrison at the Maker Faire - some of you may know him as mikeselectricstuff  on YouTube where he dissects and tears down various small and large (and some dangerous!) electrical items to show how they work.

It was all I could do to keep composed and not freak-out in a huge nerdgasm while screaming "I LOVE YOUUUUUUU!!!!!!......" and pass out on the floor!

  :D :D


Well, that's another one off the list of "God-like heros of hacking and making". This makes three I've met and talked to - Tim Hunkin, Mitch Altman, and now Mike. ;D

Yes. It's a good thing you didn't do that. I'm also glad you didn't turn into a Japanese school girl, holding a poster of Harrison and screaming "Kawaii"  ;D

In the grand scheme of things, no big shakes really, but my dear old mum (84) has finally learned from my scrappy tutorials and writing on bits of spare paper, how to e-mail family and friends on her I-pad!

A long way to go (and, never had one, a learning process for me too) Yep, a positive step forward......

Went down to London yesterday to see a friend from University I hadn't seen in.... 10 months I think, and then.... five?  six? years before that. 

Went to the Soane Museum (highly recommended) and the William Morris Museum in Hammersmith (likewise recommended), and a lecture on Morris wallpaper.  Oh and became a member of the William Morris Society too. 

It was a long day and I was absolutely shattered by the end of it but was well worth it.
