Hump Day and Bread

And though early am about done if not done in. Been clearing up piles of stuff and sorting books and cd’s and assorted junk into their appropriate places. Cleared off a couple of shelves and moved them down a few notches to allow the larger volumes to stand upright and then started filling them up again.

Ripped a couple of music cd’s I found in the pile to iTunes. Downloaded and tried a media player (XMBC) that was highly touted in an article I read and then trashed it as on this machine (iBook) twas painfully slow and not intuitive to use. At all. YMMV.

Got a loaf of bread working in the bread machine. Trying the 1 1/2 – 2 loaf recipe, or that’s how I remember the stuff that goes in it.

1 1/2 cups of water
1 1/2 table spoons sugar
2 cups white flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons salt

Never done it in a bread machine before but getting low on store bought bread and the freezer is full so figured I’d give it a shot. Will see in about 2 1/2 hours, or in the morning if I hit the sack before it’s done.

Think I’m gonna sit and read for a bit and maybe browse some then call it an early night. Till tomorrow… 😉

    I have had that same experience with SEVERAL music players. There have been some that were touted very highly, and I used them and said “WTF? Albert Einstein couldn’t figure this thing out!” Of course they were supposed to have a “very intuitive interface”. All I can say is, anyone who were using those things and found them intuitive I wouldn’t want to be sitting next to in a bar. Or church. Or ANYWHERE.

    YMMV. Indeed. Maybe it should be YMWVFMBWAD–Your Mileage Will Vary From Mine, Because We Are Different. Hmm…looks like either Sanskrit or something someone says after the 4th drink too many….I think I heard that a few times on Saturday nights in my youth….

    Not sure if it was the old whole wheat flour or too much yeast but the loaf didn’t turn out right. It did good at first, and then the top fell in while cooking. Will try another loaf tomorrow with new flour and less yeast and see how that goes.
