    • Endorsement
      This is kind of strange, because who else were they going to endorse? BIG NEWS >> @MoveOn members overwhelmingly voted to endorse @JoeBiden and said he has “the most progressive platform in Democratic Party history" as the nominee. They previously endorsed @BernieSanders in 2016 and @BarackObama in 2008.https://t.co/ZNFuIqwD0D — Matt Hill (@themat […]

    • War Crime Apologia
      One is not required to bomb hospitals, to torture or to engage in mass killing of civilians when one is a chief of state. “My favorite war criminal did less war crimes than your war criminal” is not a defense. That people feel the need to defend those who do such things when in power […]

Lord and Lady

The word “Lord”  is an “Old English word ‘hlāford’ which originated from ‘hlāfweard’ meaning ‘bread keeper’ or ‘loaf-ward’, reflecting the Germanic tribal custom of a chieftain providing food for his followers”.  Lady originated from a similar word for “bread kneader”.

As I was surfing youtube, I found a series of videos produced by Christian and Johannes Zinzendorf of The Hermitage in Pennsylvania.  I don’t know much about The Hermitage except it appears to be some kind of place where the residents live in harmony with nature.  The Hermitage produces a series of videos on how to make linen, starting with the flax plant, and Johannes is a baker who uses traditional methods and original bake ovens to bake breads, cakes and whoopie pies.  There’s a very Bob Ross quality about their videos.  The “bake day” videos are 38 parts long, which could be exhausting, except that the host is so thorough and knows his subject so well that it almost makes you want to hunt down your own dough trough.

So, I’m posting a few of his videos from the middle of bake day.  No baking has actually occurred yet.  Up to this point, Johannes has gone over the architecture and functions of the bake ovens, how to make sourdough starter (in large quanitities) and the basics of grinding whole wheat flour.  I’m going to be painting most of the day.  The kitchen came out great!  But I have a lot of rooms left.  In the meantime, enjoy these videos from The Hermitage and post your favorite recipes in the comments below.

Great job, guys!
