I just finished prepping some ABTs for today's Q. I could have used a couple more inches on my bacon because I'm just not getting the stretch on my homemade bacon that I do storebought.

Only if they hold together
I pride myself on not using toothpics. I may have to rethink that. If they don't come apart in the fridge they should be OK.

Just finished making 10 gallons of homemade liquid laundry detergent. I've been making it for so many years that I've streamlined the process and it only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.

Glenn and I were discussing the cost of this venture and, just for fun, we did some quick calculations.

The ingredients, per 10 gallons, cost about $4.00. Each gallon of detergent will wash 32 loads of laundry, which means I've just made enough detergent to clean 320 loads. Cost per load then is $0.0125. What a deal!!!!

I never sat down and calculated the per load expense and I'm amazed. Even more amazing is that this stuff is far better than anything I've ever used, plus it's great for those who suffer from detergent allergies.

Oops! I sound like an infomercial.

I'm waiting for the "great storm" to arrive. It's supposed to batter Britain overnight with storm force winds. Damage to buildings, fallen trees and floods are all predicted right across the country. Ferry services have been cancelled, train timetables re-scheduled, and bridges closed.

So far..... it's raining.

As the "huge storm" continues to rage across Britain, we have breaking news in north Hampshire. A tree.... has broken.

(It was a sapling, planted in the Spring).

This is Katy, reporting live - from her living room.
