This week's compendium

Here’s this week’s compendium. It’s something different. All items – except number 8 – are links emailed to me during November.

1. Sprouting’s so much fun; and so nutritious. Currently I’m sprouting chickpeas. [1] H/t Sweetheart Vivienne.

2. Beautiful and functional design can’t be beaten. Pity so little makes it into commercial production. [2] H/t darling Meg.

3. This Atlantic article titled ‘Caring for Your Introvert’ is exactly me. 100%. So much so, it’s scary. [3] H/t Chrows25.

4. Mark Twain’s quote: ‘A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes’ is in the first paragraph. It’s a favourite of my beloved’s. [4] H/t Sweetheart Vivienne.

5. I don’t think I’ve ever made bagels. This recipe should initiate a remedy. [5] H/t Sue & Craig.

6. But Ive baked Turkish bread (aka pide). From this recipe. Yum. [6] H/t darling Kate.

7. A startling Age article about the environmental implications of keeping pet dogs. [7] H/t Sweetheart Vivienne.

8. Thursday 18th November was my late parents’ 67th wedding anniversary. [8] H/t darling sister Sue.

I hope you had as much fun reading this week’s compendium as I had compiling it.

Finally, I wish you, dear Farmdoc’s Blog readers, a wonderful week.

Oh dear, it appears that I mght as well be flying my own jumbo jet, since we seem to be well endowed in the pet department making huge footprints not only on the couch but on the ecological system.
I'll just not replace I think the cats might well outlast me, since the youngest is about 2months!
