Using home-grown vegetables, this is the our first attempt at pickled cucumbers.

The joy of soy.
Soy nuts, tofu, soy milk, okara cookies and okara muffins. All from 4 cups of dry soybeans.

Thanks +Barrie Settle.  It seems that you take having a microwave oven completely for granted. Lol. For my part, I'm dreamin' of the day when I live in a house that's spacious enough to fit one!

Do you remember a few years ago when every gadget had a different charger, and every time you changed phones you had to get a new charger as well? 
Thank god those days are behind us. My understanding is that EU made a law a few years ago that all phones had to be USB chargeable and that was a big success since manufacturers are following suit with other gadgets as well. Most likely our next camera will also charge from a USB port. 
The problem now is that with so many gadgets in our lives, we need a USB charger that has a dozen outlets on it and can source enough current to charge high current devices quickly. 
The one on the left is 4 outlet and supposed to be 2A but it gets pretty hot sourcing this much current. 
I'm thinking of building a bigger supply based on a 5V 10A SMPS or similar. Suggestions anyone?

Also I wouldn't worry about the device getting hot unless it's a cheap chinese knockoff or it's getting too hot to touch.

In many societies, consumers are now beginning to challenge their passive role as users of stuff provided by others. They are becoming much more like creators than they have ever been allowed to before. BBC News - Imagine a world without shops or factories" http://feedly.com/k/15vGK0T

Grosvenor Mormordica Fruit? Never heard of it... Although I've been looking at it for years. It looks like passionfruit without the wrinkles.

Yes, very sweet. Quintessential chinese soup taste.  I have been eating it in restaurants for years and have seen the fruit in Chinese medicine shops but only recently linked the two.
Are they sold fresh or dried at Cairns? I wonder if they grow them in Australia.
Interestingly, Grosvenor is the guy who started National Geographic.

I have stayed there twice. The place is very lovely and the management takes care to try to cater to everyone from noisy youth to quiet families. I needed some help with my bicycle and the manager gave decent advice on how to get it fixed. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Local feel. Staff friendly and attentive. Price reasonable. Pool clean. Garden well kept. Menu extensive. Meals reasonable (Like most places in Phils - too much palm oil for my liking). Quiet. I will return to this resort.
Quality: Very goodFacilities: Very goodService: Excellent
