Good morning all...wet!

Just took a sliced brown loaf oot the cupboard that was opened yesterday morning and its got green fungus on it, I'm sure they mix fungal spores in with the dough these days, the robbin bastiges.
I freeze all my bread and take it out as I need it. Also my vacuum machine is paying dividends with no more plastic boxes in the freezer and no freezer burnt food.

Yon guy in Spain has struck again. Re-loaded the software for no reason, now the system doesn't work. I hate these engineers who think because they do a little IT it gives them carte blanche to fiddle!

I wonder if they ever manage to sell the other half?

My local baker won't slice the bread for you if it's fresh from the oven, gives it to you in a paper bag, and chucks in a freezer-safe bag with wire twist. Not cheap, though.

Quite right TonyD, never forget your mums divi number. When we had a burglar alarm fitted in her house, we needed a number that she and us had to remember, so that was her divi number.

Did an early supply run as dawn was trying to break. Dense, dark, dismal clouds all around with barely a space for the sun to poke through. Rain later they say. Fall wx.


The ffrench seem to have the right idea about bread. Buy your baguettes early and eat them on the day. Very yummy with a bit of cheese or jam and a café au lait is a fresh loaf. During a stint in Issoudun it was a bit strange to walk the streets with peeps trekking to work and home clutching the absurdly long loaves and bags of probable croissants at o'dark hundred.

I notice the Mecca crane collapse thread was closed, possibly due to bickering.

Anyhoo, it is being reported that the executives of the company that owned the crane are under investigation and have been relieved of their passports.

The company concerned? Bin Laden!
