Jim Lahey No-knead Bread Baking

It has been several months, since I baked with this simple method that produces delicious bread. The no-knead method quickly assembles a bread dough. Very little labor is required. The recipe uses a small amount of dry, instant yeast and a fermentation time of 12 to 18 hours.

I prefer sourdough bread, and my starter turns five-years-old on Jan 30, 2015. But when incorporating some whole grains and/or some stout beer into a no-knead recipe, the overall bread flavor masks any flavor given off by the instant yeast.

Notes - Sat, Oct 18, 2014

I walked Barney in the morning. We shopped at Steinmart in Westgate. We shopped at the Toledo Farmers Market. We ate lunch at the Glass City Cafe. We bought two small items at Adams Street Antiques, Art, & Collectibles. We visited the newly-opened small store on Dorr Street called Beads & Books. We relaxed in the afternoon. In the evening, I watched an entertaining college football game between Notre Dame and Florida State.

We visited this place often when CP was little.

Are content silos winning?

http://scripting.com/2014/10/04/#a1412451482

Winning at what, exactly? And why do some hardcore geeks worry about whether silos are winning, losing, or whatever? The masses don't care. The masses only want something fun and easy to use. They want to relish in the moment.

The top features for community sites are users and their content

Whatever they are called ...

  • social media
  • social networks
  • forums / message boards
  • community blogs

... these sites accept user-generated content, and most likely, these sites host discussions on that content.

Some Ello thoughts - Sep - Oct 2014

(my Sep 29, 2014 comment at ToledoTalk.com with minor corrections and/or additions added below)

If you know someone who already has an Ello account, then you can request an invite from that person. Otherwise, you'll have to wait until Ello gets around to handing out new invites.

Canning Corn Salsa - Sep 21, 2014

Sunday afternoon and evening, I shucked corn and grilled corn, peppers, and onions. DD did the rest, which was a lot: preparing jars, slicing and roasting tomatoes, mixing, cooking, canning, etc. The final product was 29 pint jars of corn salsa. One casualty. A jar with contents broke at the end.

2014 NFL 0-2 and 2-0 teams

The usual info that gets mentioned each season at this time.

Since the league expanded its playoff field to 12 teams in 1990, 0-2 starts have virtually proven a mortal blow to playoff hopes. Only 11.6% of teams in that span have recovered from 0-2 to reach postseason.
