WW Bread and a Stiff Visitor


A little while back we bought some more wheat berries with the intention of grinding them in our 80’s era Vitamix.

The flour comes out ok, but the grind is not as fine as I would like for whole wheat flour.  One day, perhaps

Try #1:

Try #2:

This second loaf did not rise as well because it had some coarser grains in the dough.

Also, we recently had John Stiff in town for business and pleasure.  It was great to see him.  Seems like he was just here…

Basil’s always happy to see his Nouno.

    Basil’s Nouno is always glad to see him, too! I thought the bread was delicious. It’d probably be wonderful in toast form for breakfast, mm mm.

    don’t doubt – I’ve perused this site. Surprised they don’t list the Country Living mill… maybe they don’t like the fantastic video adverts on the website:
    Please watch several of these!

    Also, they’ve chosen a more expensive premium mill that only costs… $1300!!!
    One could have three Country Living mills for that.

    If I didn’t know you, Eric, I would think your blog was being spammed by Country Living Grain Mills.

    Dear Sir,

    Confidential Business Proposal

    Having consulted with my colleagues and based on the information gathered from the Nigerian Chambers Of Commerce And Industry, I have the privilege to request your assistance to transfer the sum of $47,500,000.00 (forty seven million, five hundred thousand United States dollars) into your accounts. The above sum resulted from an over-invoiced contract, executed, commissioned and paid for about five years (5) ago by a foreign contractor. This action was however intentional and since then the fund has been in a suspense account at The Central Bank Of Nigeria Apex Bank.

    We are now ready to transfer the fund overseas and that is where you come in. It is important to inform you that as civil servants, we are forbidden to operate a foreign account; that is why we require your assistance. The total sum will be shared as follows: 70% for us, 25% for you and 5% for local and international expenses incidental to the transfer.

    The transfer is risk free on both sides. I am an accountant with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). If you find this proposal acceptable, we shall require the following documents:

    (a) your banker’s name, telephone, account and fax numbers.

    (b) your private telephone and fax numbers —for confidentiality and easy communication.

    (c) your letter-headed paper stamped and signed.

    Alternatively we will furnish you with the text of what to type into your letter-headed paper, along with a breakdown explaining, comprehensively what we require of you. The business will take us thirty (30) working days to accomplish.

    Please reply urgently.

    Best regards

    Howgul Abul Arhu
