:o) I'm going to work that day. And after my recent hill repeats from the Strava training plans, I'm kind of sick of Box Hill at the moment. Or maybe it's just the cold?

....last Sunday's ride took us to a pub for a lunchtime beer (yeah, yeah, no surprise there!).....we bumped into a couple, about our age, on fat bikes.....what awesome bikes they are.....we were trading 'bike adventure stories', you know, the way you do.....we were talking about our bike tour last year and how much fun we had. Next month is 'Brian's Day', (it would have been my brother's birthday), it's on a Thursday.....the last 2 years I've taken the day off and cycled around Surrey, the places he would go, and the pubs he would visit.....this year I'm pondering a 3 day tour.....b&bs, 'cos it's way too cold to camp.....it's a serious ponder....weather dependant!

Once, only once, did I make sourdough bread.
I did it the "proper" way (not the "yoghurt" way)
Took days.
the sourdough "starter" sat in the airing cupboard for ages not rising very much at all :-)
I ended up with a pretty solid loaf.
But it was eatable enough!

+Doug Essinger-Hileman True enough that long fermentation makes bread more digestible. But there is no such thing as fast fermentation sourdough, to my knowledge. And with wild yeast, you are not only getting a different fungus from commercial yeast, but a cohort of symbiotic bacteria along with it. These bacteria change the way the flour is broken down and many writers see added health benefits in that. There are numerous sources for that, but here is one:

Great food, however the service wasn't that great. The 'waitress' had to walk past the cutlery to bring our food, so why not pick it up and bring it out with her....instead of putting down the food on the table, and then instructing us to go inside to pick up cutlery and sauces....it doesn't take much to go that extra mile....

Using Goggle Maps and Trip Advisor found this gem of a bar before our trip. It as excellent, tapas was great and very reasonably priced as were the beers and sangria.
