a surface for dough

Sanded and conditioned the old butcher block cart top I've had for 15 years.  Almost ready to start prepping some dough.  Video of the effort coming Monday.  72,80,40,0,B

a surface...

Was about to buy some kind of large surface for dough prep when I remembered I already have just what I need.  Unearthed one of my butcher block topped carts from the bowels of a shipping container yesterday.  I bought two of these (from Ikea) about 15 years ago for my kitchen in upstate NY.  I have been using one of them as a tool bench out here and have pretty much destroyed the top.  The other is still in pretty good condition and I am about to sand it down and condition/seal it for a second life.  The butcher block top is 24" x 38".  Video tomorrow...  58,66,32,0,B

that new episode

Ben Fogle: Return to the Wild - the episode they shot last July just aired in the UK last night.  Getting swarmed with messages and new subscribers to my YouTube channel.  I kinda cringe when I watch myself in one of these productions, but they did a pretty good job with it (they sent me a private link so I could see it on Vimeo).  I imagine it will be a couple of months before the episode is available to see here in the US.  52,60,42,0,W

cash back...

I have been an Amazon Prime member for 10 years.  I always breezed right by all those Amazon Visa card offers...until today.  1.  Amazon informed me today how much cash back I would have earned from last years purchases.  2.  I ordered a few more items for baking that I don't necessarily NEED.  Applied for the card and was approved within 15 minutes and got an instant $70 gift card.  Since I am long over the days of racking up credit card debt, this is nothing but a win-win. 71,81,58,0,W

another school shooting...

On occasion, I have been chided by atheists for not addressing mass shootings from a Christian point of view.  The answer is simple.  Horrible things happen to 1000's of people every day throughout the world, yet it is only these kinds of events that gain the interest of the public. Satan is everywhere and the problem is confounded by what people choose to focus on and how limited their attention span is. 
2 Timothy 2:26  And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
