As much as I love regular artisan bread, for health reasons I have to cut down/out on white flour and bake whole wheat breads. I pretty much have to do it myself, because the good local bakeries don't bake their olive or herb etc breads with whole wheat.

I'd like to get your thoughts on some whole wheat issues like:

- 100% whole wheat or use some high gluten wheat flour for strength? Maybe a high gluten preferment added to the whole wheat that has had a nice autolyse soak?

- How much additional hydration for whole wheat vs white. The King Arthur web site suggests 2 teaspoons per cup of flour, which by my calculation is an extra 9% (the website says for high hydration breads, just go with the original formula)

Thanks for any suggestions

I thought the idea of adding extra gluten and using stronger wheat originated in the industrial bakeries for reasons of speed and process consistency? I don't think you need it. People have been baking nice loaves using whole wheat flour for millennia without adding gluten or unusually strong wheat varieties.

I've chartered twice from Aventura Sailing, for overnight trips to Catalina. Both times, the boats had significant maintenance issues. The second time, I met the crew of the boat that had just sailed the first boat we had chartered 6 months before. Some of the maintenance issues I had raised with Aventura still had not been fixed. They seem like nice people. But the fundamental problem is that they rely on the boat owners to handle most of the maintenance. They don't seem to coordinate with the owners; when we boarded we found at least one maintenance project still in progress (the galley sink). When I asked what equipment was in the galley, they said that they couldn't tell me - the owners might remove pots, pans, or utensils at any time. To be specific: Here are the issues I reported to Aventura after sailing KeRu: -The chartplotter screen display is too dim to use; at first we thought that it didn't come on at all. If there is a way to adjust the screen brightness, you should cover it in the boat check-out and boat manual. -There's no way to know if the radar is on, or to see the display. Maybe this will be fixed with making the chartplotter screen usable. But there's no switch on the electrical panel marked Radar, either. -One of the two screws that holds the top of the companionway ladder in place is missing. This a potentially dangerous problem, if the remaining screw gives way. -The cockpit table pedestal isn't very sturdy. It has a handhold, but if you grab it, it doesn't feel very solid. -The drawer in the galley under the companionway ladder has no latch. When the boat heels on a starboard tack, the drawer flies open and out of the cabinet completely. -The tape marker on the steering wheel for the rudder center position is out of place. -The only toilet paper on board was a partial roll in the forward head - nothing in the aft head. -Both shower taps in the forward head give hot water -The hot and cold taps in the aft shower are switched -The clear panel in the bimini isn't clear; the helmsman can't see the masthead fly. -The shower sump pumps don't seem to work -Water pressure in the galley sink is intermittent -Your website description of KeRu has some discrepancies: --There are no stern pulpit seats --The GPS/chartplotter/radar aren't currently usable (at least until the screen is visible) --The refrigerator doesn't work --There is no inverter Here are the issues with About Time: - They did not fill the fuel tank before we left - The mainsail roller furling line WAS NOT CONNECTED TO THE MAST OR MAINSAIL; there was no way to furl the mainsail until we managed to get the furling line threaded into the furler. Even then, one of the blocks through which the continuous loop furling line ran was in the wrong place, making it very difficult to bring the mainsail in. - There was no nozzle on the galley sink; fortunately Aventura did repair this just before we left, but only because we boarded the night before and happened to run into their maintenance staff. - The engine tachometer is flukey A friend told me about his experience with Magnificent 7: - None of the instruments at the helm work - On a trip 2 weeks before, the motor failed and they had to be towed in If you charter from Aventura, plan to spend a couple of hours checking every important system on the boat before you leave. And make sure you have a back-up plan if you can't raise/lower/reef the sails or start the engine, or use the galley. Check the fuel tank.

The bagels have a slightly open crumb and don't have the chewy texture of a genuinely boiled bagel. It's OK as bagel-shaped bread; not very good bagels.

The menu is pretty much standard Mexican-American: tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, mole, with a few modest innovations. The food is good if more authentically gringo than Mexican. The decor is very nice and the service is very good. I've been told that the margaritas are good. It's a good place for Mexican-American standards and a drink that's a little fancier than usual.

Ken Knight in the Internet Sales department was the most knowledgeable and professional salesperson we spoke with during our entire car search, at other Honda as well as Kia and Mazda dealers. After he took us through the Costco auto purchase program (worth joining Costco just for that) and showed us the car we were interested in, my wife said she was comfortable buying the car right there and then, even though we had planned to see some more dealers.

Good solid Cantonese food at very reasonable prices. The salt and pepper fried fish is delicious - beats conventional fish and chips any day. The Yu shiang eggplant (eggplant in the style of fish) is delicious also. The duck soup with leeks was just so-so, but other soups there are very good. The service is slow; I think they keep prices down by cutting back on the number of servers. As long as you aren't in a hurry, and you don't mind the informal ambience, it's a great place.

Genuinely authentic Italian pizza (not quite as thin crust at Rome style, but close) with good not excessive toppings. Octopus salad is terrific. Just a few salads, salumi appetizers, and the pizzas. Wood burning oven.
