SA Hunter: evening all - yes, I've been away again, and missed out on a lot. Hope you are all well & safe.

paranoia: You were gone? Welcome back mate, for now at least... I hope everything went well in the big smoke.

SA Hunter: HaHa - not much smoke out West, but, yeah, had a good time. If anyone is on the SA West Coast Oct next year, gotta go to the Oysterfest in Ceduna!! First time there, and loved it. Very family friendly......

paranoia: Oysterfest? One mans trash I guess... Last trip across the Nullarbor I stopped in Ceduna for lunch... plenty of people without shoes yelling on the main street, not much smoke

SA Hunter: haha - funny thing is, that's normal communication for them - people get worries with all the yelling, but calm down when explained it's just how they talk/yell.

Peter: Hey all. SA Hunter - the Oysterfest sounds good. One of my favourite foods ever.

paranoia: Never a dull moment hey? at least you've got a couple days I guess...

SA Hunter: Evening everyone - warm here in SA.

paranoia: Wonderful to have warm evenings again... I look forward to a few more camp outs in the front yard with the kids

SA Hunter: yeah, spent last night on a mate's "small" boat - 58ft, sleeps 11. Got a good feed of squid, whiting & flathead!!
Oct 17, 2017 22:12:50 GMT 10
paranoia: Wow... Sounds fantastic! Yeah I don't think I'll ever own something like that given the missus' stance on boats. I'll be happy enough when I finish building my 7 footer

SA Hunter: Well, we are always looking for people to bait our hooks!!!

paranoia: Tempting mate... If I could only find the time!

I made a sourdough starter some years ago, and I added a small piece of rhubarb to the mix (following advice that this helps). It got going very quickly; much quicker than subsequent attempts in which I only used flour and water.
Plus it gave me a good excuse to buy some rhubarb for Mrs Pete to use in a crumble...
Did you have to continue feeding it rhubarb? Or just when starting it? ...It took me three weeks or so to get my flour and water starter going properly, but like I said, it's now going on six months and is still happily bubbling.
...I've also heard of feeding starters beer, for any of those preppers who might like an excuse to crack one open.
