Can You Say "False Flag"?

How convenient.

A tragedy for the Ficus administration to exploit.

Amazing how that always seems to happen.

Gander...Goose...

If every person who died with the slightest trace of COVID-1984: The CuomoVirus in his or her body is considered to have died of COVID, then I'm sure that anyone who dies after receiving the vaccine will be counted as dying of the vaccine, right?

Signs of Life

I have largely abandoned 'social media' so I'm not interacting with a lot of good friends that help me maintain my sanity, but at the same time I'm not having that same sanity challenged by brain-dead twits, Biden supporters, Communists, and Democrats (but I repeat myself).

I'm still around - my meditative mantra currently is "non carborundum illegitimi".

It's entirely possible, though, that I may end up being described on TV as "a quiet man who kept to himself"

I can tell people not to pee on the electric fence, but some are going to do it anyway.

I just want to be left alone, but by all means, continue to fuck around and find out for yourself.

So...How You Doin'?

The sourdough experiment ended a while back.

It was fun but it was a lot of work, and time consuming.

I may revisit it when the weather is more conducive to baking, but summertime in Iowa is not a good time to be running an oven indoors.

COVID-1984: The Cuomovirus continues.  I'd like to think it's going to fade away quietly after the first week of November but I suspect Dems are gonna double down on it if Trump is re-elected.  Maybe this will stir freedom lovers to act and to stand up against those using the Wuhan Flu to destroy the nation.

April 30 - abt 6 PM

Yeah, off schedule.  Taking a couple of days off work does that to one.

That said, I skipped tending Baby on Wednesday and did a feed early Thursday AM.  She seems to tolerate that so I may continue doing 4/4/2 feeds every other day.  We'll see.  Meanwhile I saved the discard, fed it with a couple ounces each of water and flour, and put it in the fridge to work with later.

I do think I'm gonna invest in some widemouth jars...I think they'll be easier to work with for storing and working the starter.

Been watching more YouTube videos on breadmaking and it appears I'm gonna have to embrace the artisan loaf concept and save the loaf pans for yeast bread baking.

Baby's still active - today's high water mark was at the shoulder of the quart Ball jar.

Side note - I always wondered about the flour and water paste the old boys on the moonshiner shows on TV used to seal joints on their stills...I don't doubt it now...cleaning dried starter out of the jars is a chore!

Anyway...the usual 4/4/2/clean jar routine.  I think I'll save tomorrow's discard to make a sponge - apparently that's what the fed starter one uses to make bread dough is called - and perhaps bake Thursday or Friday.

No, Blogger didn't eat my Sunday entry - I didn't make one.

I also didn't tend my starter.  Bad me.

Went for a motorcycle ride Saturday morning, came home, puttered around the house a little, then laid down for a nap.  Mistake.  Woke up early Sunday morning intending to feed Baby, then fell back to sleep.  One of the downsides for me of working a non-standard shift is my sleep schedule is all out of whack and weekends doubly so.

I tended to Baby a little while ago.  The texture was smoother - not bubbly - and there was a beer note to the smell.  4 oz water, 4 oz flour, 2 oz starter, clean jar, discarded the rest.

Probably going to attempt another discards bake in a couple of days after I make sure she's still active, and going to try not to make the same mistakes as the first bake.
