Too much TV…

It’s been a week since the surgery. In which time I have watched 4 series of Justified and 3 series of Breaking Bad.

The maths is a little scary. 52 episodes of Justified & 33 episodes of Breaking Bad @ roughly 45 minutes per episode is 3,825 minutes of viewing time. Sounds like a big number, but if you convert it to hours, it’s worse still @ 63:45 hours. Surely 2.66 days sounds better? Who am I kidding, I’ve also read two 600 page books and spent some time with the family.

I look forward to sleeping normally again….please!! Unfortunately I still have 21 episodes of breaking bad and an entire series of Game of Thrones to watch. I’ll let you do the maths on that!

 


Videos & your feedback…

I am working on a new video page, instead of hosting videos here, converting the format and coding the html for every video. Instead I am working on a feed from YouTube. Have a look at the link below:





What do you think?


Formula 1

The Malaysian Grand Prix just started on TV….is it just me or does anyone else only watch the first few minutes hoping fo a crash?


The truth about your supermarket loaf

The truth about your supermarket loaf – Telegraph.co.uk

When reading this article I realised that I had never even considered whether the flour ¬†used in supermarket bread was fresh. I was well aware that most supermarket bread is prepared off-site and then baked off in the “instore bakery”. What I never considered was that the flour they used to make this bread was also previously frozen. No wonder the “fresh” supermarket bread is so tasteless and bland. I wonder what they will be made to add to the label? Whatever it is I bet they find a way around that too.

One of the things I miss the most about living in Paris are the boulangeries (OK i’ll ¬†admit it, the patisseries too!). They are on almost every street corner and you will struggle to find one that serves bad bread – especially if you are comparing it to Tesco bread. Obviously the price difference is huge too.

When I read the article above and was delighted to hear about the Real Bread Campaign, but upon further investigation annoyed that it is only in Britain. When will people in Dublin start to appreciate real bread?
