alcohol mention & food 

Made pizza again tonight and it was one of those rare occasions where the dough turned out to be near perfect!

I also tapped my latest attempt at Imperial Stout and.. YEEEEEEESSSSS!!!! I NAILED IT!! (flavour-wise).. By leagues this is my best beer yet, it tastes exactly like I hoped, it's a real Imperial stout, strong-flavoured, thick, oily and both coffee and cacao nib flavour profiles make appearances at different stages of the drink..

What a day to be alive! (In this household specifically)

So, I probably missed the ABV by about 50% but I don't care, I'll work on all that once I start my brewing PgDip programme.. right now, it's all about the flavour and this is banging!

Next beer will be another dark one, thinking a porter and am tempted to see if I can infuse it with dark cherries.. because I do over-confidence better than any other entity, alive or dead in any dimension of the entire universe! .. ahem..

I never did enjoy the Lord of the Flies book, so I felt almost justified when I read about this "real" shipwreck experience of schoolboys on the other side of the world in 1966 (coincidentally, when I too was on the other side of the world, aged 1).…

Happy to say, the piper is very, very happy with his new reed (thank you Charlie), and his glued (not leaky any more) bag! 😁🎵🎶 Shame it's snowing.... 😕

My brother sent me this video of a guy placing bets that he can speak your language. Even a gàidhlig speaker pops up!

The end of another perfect day of isolation.
Sunsets don't seem to care much about rules.

Fitted a magtrap to my heating circuit three months ago, following a drain and flush of course, and this is how much debris it has collected already :)


Our freedom depends on us. It is not something we ask permission for. The hunger for freedom resides in our hearts. We reshape our society if we change our way of thinking. Freedom is not given from the top, it can be given to society from the bottom up.
