Cooked up a beef & veg stir-fry curry on my just-installed today induction cooktop. Beef is tender & since I used a korma sauce, the curry is mild yet flavourful.

The blurb at the start of the Kindle book said typical reading time 1 hr & 15 minutes. I finished it in 35 minutes.

My HomePod Mini fstarted playing this tune youtube.com/watch?v=wn9NUmPV_T. I had never heard it before.

You have back pain & two acetaminophen tablets plus two ibuprofen tablets. Which combination produces the greatest analgesic effect?

Imagine how upset all the folks who believe conspiracy theories will be when they find out they are part of a conspiracy to use morons to spread disinformation through conspiracy theories.

Fixed a friend’s iMac today. It was all complicated by a Windoze “expert” setting up a new user account for her. Totally unnecessary, I managed to get it to boot into her late husband’s user account after having to reset the forgotten password.

Satisfying my Vimto squash cravings. I finished one bottle a few minutes ago, there’s enough in another bottle for a few mixed drinks. I found an Amazon seller with local stock: their minimum order is three bottles, each of one litre capacity. They’re reasonably priced so I placed an order for a pack of three bottles. Delivery expected by 8pm Sunday. Right now it’s just after 1am on Saturday.

the just-released (9 hours ago) 2022 updated version of Antti Martikainen’s 2015 Throne Of The North album. It sounds fabulous on my HomePod Mini stereo pair, I have one HomePod on each side of the bed for a really immersive stereo experience. More info here: songwhip.com/antti-martikainen

Today, midway into a Zomm meeting, with my contribution done, I went back to bed at 12:30pm as I was feeling cold & shivering violently. I set my electric blanket to it’s lowest setting. I endured this for almost 5 hours before donning was thick jersey & woolly beanie and turning on a radiant heater. This increased the room temperature from 13C to 19ºC. By 8 pm the shivering was done, I turned off the electric blanket, reduced the heater to 17ºC & removed the jersey & beanie. Now I feel fine.

Ohh, possibly a new HomePod coming next year. Weird that they’d discontinue the original and leave a big gap for ~ 2 years, but I’ll take it. Love the sound of ours. 9to5mac.com/2022/06/26/gurman-

Just made a really nice oaty matcha latte in an ALDI Expressi milk frother. First add enough cold water to cover the beater attachment. Then add two heaped teaspoons of culinary matcha powder & use the heat & whisk setting. Decant into a cup. Now add enough oat milk to cover the whisk plus a few teaspoons of condensed milk. Use the heat & whisk setting. This makes a thick, hot frothy milk mix. Decant into matcha in cup, stir & enjoy.

A brief history of Physics:

Aristotle said a bunch of stuff that was wrong. Galileo and Newton fixed things up. Then Einstein broke everything again. Now, we’ve basically got it all worked out, except for small stuff, big stuff, hot stuff, cold stuff, fast stuff, heavy stuff, dark stuff, turbulence, and the concept of time.
