Well Kai.

Why do you think I have been "bitching" about, why I would never turn the mechanic's wrench ever again here in Arizona?

I hate extreme heat. A long time ago. I didn't mind it so much. But now days. I run under shade, and into air-conditioned buildings as fast as I can!!

That's why, I'm hoping that in the next few years. I hope to move back to California. And maybe might work as a mechanic. Or something else by the time I arrive back out there?

Hi Petar:

To answer your question, Candace and I split the food prep. Cooking from scratch and natrual/organic foods have been a hobby of ours for years. Both of us have been in the professional food service field before, and we cook like the menu describes even when it's just the two of us.

The secret to the best tasting food is in the ingredients you start with...

Also, we really enjoy making breads (especially whole grain). Kneeding the dough has a very theraputic effect. (as if living on a boat and sailing is stressful anyway!) ha ha ha

Re: Degrees

BC Mike C once whispered in the wind:
At least you guys have some degrees to talk about. I don't have any, as in Zeroooooo.
Other day it was zero F at 0730 and 50 at 0930.
That's minus 18 C to plus 10 C in two hours. Then a North breeze came in ( Arctic Air ) and we dropped to freezing in about 20 minutes. Those are bigger changes than some places get in the couse of a year. We range 138 degrees in the course of a year if we have a very cold winter and a very warm summer.
That is a 66 degree range C.
Auckland NZ has large barametric pressure changes, enough to shatter crystal and windshields.

I always overlook the Canadians on the board when it comes to weather. You guys know cold like nobody else (except maybe Pwederell??)

Yup... 17F is downright balmy comparatively. However, I have some slightly wet wood this week and have to stoke the Little Cod woodstove every 2.5hrs. OUCH! Figures this week is the one I have wet wood. Of course when it waw 60 degrees out, I had perfect wood! ha ha

Looking forward to a 40 degC change over 5 hours this Saturday. That's how long it takes to fly back to NZ.
Hey Sean, I know what you mean about kneading the dough. When I was a ship's engineer I used to help the cooks with the bread baking at the end of a trip. Kneading the mix used to get the ingrained dirt out of my hands really nicely.

Slicing and grating cheese also cleans up the hands nicely. Crackers anyone?
