      Some of the free advertising companies are getting on the likes of CNN is pretty disgusting.
      Free donuts and pizza for healthcare workers. Might as well throw in a carton of Marlboro and a few bottles of Jameson while their at it.

        Hey - on the asparagus. Got a nice mustardy vinaigrette as you recommended. A silly question: I guess I need to let the asparagus go cold before having it with a vinaigrette?
        i like then when still a little warm, but anywhere from luke warm to room temp is fine and really down to personal preference.

            It also doesn’t play nice with his stock market bragging as it’ll undoubtedly mean some sort of sanctions or trade war if he’s to give the whole hog.

            I guess he could paint them as the bad guys and do nothing about it too and they idiots who support him would still support him though. Who knows.
            This may or may not be an original thought of my own.
            All efforts were made to make this thought original but with the abundance of thoughts in the world the originality of this thought cannot be guaranteed.

Although I'd imagine there is a weariness, especially as its the exact same playbook as the last time. Be interesting to see how the polls hold up - currently have Biden ahead in all the critical states, but I'd imagine that's very very tentative and highly dependent on the quality of the VP pick.
                Have you watched the American Factory documentary? fascinating stuff when a Chinese company decides to buy an old GM factory and reopen and modernise it to create glass for the automotive sector. well worth a watch.

                  Went to the local park in Fairview to get a bit of fresh air and coffee. Was shocked to see small groups playing football. Police van was in the park also but they didn't do anything which I was surprised by.

                      Same up here with people out sunbathing, kicking football etc. While it might not be too much of an issue now, how is it expected people respect the different restrictions as we phase out if guards standing by and letting them bend them during the strictest phase.

                        No issue with sunbathing surely as stationary and easy to maintain social distance. Football is the bigger issue due to contact nature of it.

                            Nor do I, but let it be officially allowed if the guards are allowing it. Leo says one thing and guards do another isn't showing people that we will take the restrictions seriously

                                    Anyone think of doing a few jobs during the lockdown, (i was flooring attic)do not hesitate to get those wireless 18 volt, very expensive tools. I got a milwaukee drill and driver set and a battery jigsaw that are all way more powerful than any plug in ones i ever had. Its like a different sport , best 500-600 you'll spend.

                                            The bread looked great...

                                            [IMG][/IMG]

                                            Something went wrong though somewhere along the line. I took the dough out today after about 20 hours in the fridge and it wasn't as risen as his. They were quite thin going in and not as springy as they should have been. Spent a good 12 mins kneading them yesterday and got that window pane effect so I don't know. Nice crust, and it was ok for dipping in oil but nowhere near where it should be.

                                            Quite dense..

                                            Pity though, as the barbecue chicken they were to go with was deadly..

                                            [IMG][/IMG]



                                            I have half the dough left, is there any way to salvage it somehow?

                                                      Yep.

                                                      I'll have a look back over the video tomorrow and see if I can spot where I went wrong, but I kinda knew when I took it out of the fridge today that it wasn't right. Wasn't much bigger than when I put it in.

                                                      I'll have another crack at it.

                                                          Simple to cook. Chop off the bottom bits, use a peeler to get rid of the bottom outer layer. Boil salted water then turn off the heat and add the asparagus to float there for 20 minutes. Add mustard vinagrette to serve and enjoy.


                                                          However good they are they won't beat these picked from the garden and straight into the pan with an egg laid by the next door neighbours hens

                                                                                            I have stopped watching News etc, I just get the numbers and might read a few tweets about it but trying not to let it get that far into my head and if you are reading about this all the time it would reck your head!

I'm one of maybe 40 faculty that teach during the summer, so its not a unique event. Each year their IT dept acts absolutely shocked that a staff member might need to be able to log in to their system. Cue 20 emails back and forth while they liaise with HR trying to figure out what to do. I suppose its one way to keep busy, but you'd wonder if there's not a slightly smarter approach they could adopt.

                                                                                            Reminds me of the place I actually worked in Dublin. Never seen anything quite like it. Two random examples from millions where you'd wonder how the organisation manages to turn the lights on each day.

                                                                                            They could never enroll PhD students as the system couldn't handle that a student might not be taking any courses. So they'd hard-coded into the system that a student couldn't be enrolled without being registered for classes.

                                                                                            Another time the entire university funding system ground to a halt as the one person in the payments office (maybe 50 people working there) that could handle approving faculty reimbursements was off sick for two months and they'd never thought to train someone else.

Not a basketball fan by any stretch and knew little of the man and the team before watching but its fantastic TV. Even my sport hating missus is enjoying it.
