    One of my neighbours has been putting a street bread order in to a bakery in York during the lockdown here, for which I've been very grateful. When I go to pick up my bread, I always take something with me as a thank you gift, and tonight I grabbed a posh packet of biscuits I thought she and her husband would enjoy. As I was walking down the road, I noticed they were 'Quadruple Chocolate Cookies' (I think I got them in at Christmas), and thought I should have taken a pic for the thread, but handing my neighbour an opened pack of cookies, just so I could get a Lambsfoot pic might have been something beyond her comprehension :rolleyes: :D Got a large white sourdough in the freezer, along with a large wholemeal tin loaf, and a large granary loaf in the bread-bin :) :thumbsup:

    Speaking of Punch. Here is an original print that I acquired in the early 1970's created by the Punch cartoonist, Ronald Searles. The shadow of the left side is my hand holding my phone. It is titled "The Thing from the Underground." The blue rose is a medieval symbol for eternal life.

    Hello Jack! Glad your getting some daily bread. Recently There was a bit on the news about how a “Museum” bread mill From 17-1800’s ? In England was Put back in service to help provide ground flour to the local artisan bakery In the village because other flour/bread wasn’t being brought in because of Covid-19.. The people at the Mill knew what To do since they had been doing demonstrations for the tourists for years. Fresh baked breads are always welcome. :):thumbsup:

    :D :D

    Packaged cookies/biscuits are too much of a problem for me (we hardly ever buy them), but over the last few months at home, I think we’ve baked more cakes, cookies and brownies than we normally would in a year! :eek: :D

    Those were good, but I always preferred this kind as a kid. Talk about sweet! o_O :D


    I noticed several of y’all were posting pile-side pics earlier today. Didn’t want to miss out. ;)


    Kind of a risky day to be drinking from a pint glass outside. Cottonwood seeds are floating around all over the place.

    That's interesting Laurence, I have been to a few old mills over the years, which grind small amounts of flour. The mill in York Castle Museum did this when I was a kid, and though I've not visited it, @donn tells me that one of the artisan bakeries in York has a windmill. My local Leeds Bread Co-op has just re-opened, so I will be able to walk there. I do enjoy good bread :) :thumbsup:

    I'm glad to hear you're better again Mark, 60 days is a long time. Great to see you here, and I hope you're having fun at the pool :) :thumbsup:

    Dangerous times! :eek: :D Those DO look sweet Barrett! :D Nice pile-side pic there :cool: I haven't had my Stingo yet, but in the meantime another case arrived from Sam Smith's ;) I like the street scene, though I imagine those cotton seeds can cause problems :thumbsup:

    I think I've cut up more cardboard these past two months than in the whole of last year! :rolleyes: Glad you got your supplies Dan :thumbsup:

    Sorry to hear that John, you need a mask my friend :thumbsup:

    Morning Guardians, hope everyone is managing OK, staying safe and well. It's another dull day here today, but not raining for the moment. Have a good day folks :thumbsup:

    Speaking of public-spiritedness, it isn't very well rewarded around these parts. I cut myself a torus out of 1/4" plywood, fixed lambsfoots around its outer circumference pointing outwards, and hung it at hula-hoop height from a shoulder harness. Obviously it can't fully twirl, but I can refine the deployment of the blades by bumping and grinding.
    I was barely out of the parking ramp when some cop started hassling me about it.

    No, officer, you have correctly divined my attitude towards my fellow-citizens.
