Working the leftovers Thursday, smoked hoisin pork rib tacos with slaw flavoured with rice vinegar & toasted sesame seed oil, crushed peanuts, fine radish, cucumber and lime.

This may be the summer of the burger, none last year quickly making up for that.

 One hundred fifty gram grilled beef patty charcoal grilled,, toasted sprouted seed bun, house dills, Shropshire blue cheese which is killer, low brow Cheeze Whiz, red onion, tomato, sweet relish, ballpark mustard, backyard lettuce... can't wait for backyard tomatoes, maybe tomorrow...

Road trip today, five brands of Bomba rice in stock, haven't been able to get to the store since January.

Paellas to be...
Take care!

Maybe check out the kits over at Crimson Guitars, who are in the UK, if you want to do all the finish yourself.
BigD guitars has tons of good videos on YouTube using leather dye as a color finish. I actually have a few of the Angelus dyes he uses and they are really pretty cool.

Crimson Guitars is sponsoring a charity build off of their kits by a number of popular youtube luthiers including BigD.

I do have a couple Alpha 1 x 12's i had a look at and they're marked 4G3 so no idea what's up with their labelling.

Just from the picture you have 3 central terminals, those are your poles. I just check continuity to find which outer terminals connect to which central pole, markup the back to remember when it comes time to wire.
Haven't an Alpha to check but i'd think something like;

A - 1,2,3,4
B - 5,6,7,8
C - no terminal?
D - 9,10,11,12

Why not a Covid party, party with a known infected person and the first person to get doctor verification they now have it wins the booty.

'Herd immunity', has it been established there is immunity once having recovered from having Covid-19?

From the CDC website, updated June 28, 2020;

The immune response, including duration of immunity, to SARS-CoV-2 infection is not yet understood. Patients with MERS-CoV are unlikely to be re-infected shortly after they recover, but it is not yet known whether similar immune protection will be observed for patients with COVID-19.


Weekend wrap, Friday lamb kebabs, marinated 24 hours in yogurt, tomato paste, lemon juice, garlic, chilli flakes, sprinkled with Aleppo pepper - onion/parsley/balsamic relish and spelt tortilla. Garden rhubarb with the last of summer-19 freezer berries for a pie.

Saturday, Steelhead trout wrapped in prosciutto, beluga lentils with shaved asparagus, parsley, garden basil & arugula, thinned yogurt.

Sunday, pork ribs with a five spice powder rub, smoked with hickory and cherry woods for a couple hours, wrapped in foil with more of the rub, butter and cider vinegar, another hour on the grill, unwrapped smeared with a Hoisin based bbq sauce then back on the grill for 30-40 minutes. Al dente local asparagus, baby potato  salad.

Take care!

Neighbourhood seller of Japanese knives according to his recent videos is prepping to take a crack at the Guinness record for onions sliced in a minute, can't be sure how serious he is but he is pretty handy with a sharp knife.

Never realised just how ferocious North America can be. You always think of it as being the land of Big Macs and ice-cream...

You forgot Walmart!

It seems there's a widespread idea out there that if enough of us get this virus it will just die off and go away. That idea ignores the reality that the more people who get the virus the more potential for mutation and then resurgence, as well as the reality that some people will just never be able to breath the same again after it.
I remember reading about a total asshat walking around the U.S. Capitol Building simply saying "herd immunity" when asked why he refuses to wear a mask.  I think he may even have a medical degree (truly frightening).  I can't remember which state he represents.

For whatever reason when i see reference to 'herd' i always think lemmings mass suicide off a cliff (apparently a myth and perpetuated by Disney, but nevertheless the image endures.)

Haven't been to my dentist in 2020 but my hygienists and dentists have been masked for years of appointments.

I believe a cathode follower, high impedance buffer before the phase inverter (PI).
